PART 10: INVESTING IN COMMEMORATIVE ITEMS

Dear Friends,

I hope I've provided enough knowledge and skills to those who have been following my Blog on the different types of alternative investments one can go for:

This part covers investments in First Day Covers, MRT Cards Series, Commemorative Phone Card Series, SmartCard, Commemorative Postcards Series, Commemorative posters etc.

1.) 1973 FIRST DAY COVER &
1994 FIRST DAY COVER.
WHY CORALS & REEF LIFE SERIES? Marine life forms are being threatened by pollution and global warming. Many corals are now classified as endangered species and on the brink of extinction. This First Day Cover is good enough to remind us of our oceans and seas and what we will not be able to see in another decade or so.

2.) MRT Cards --- Set of 4 series. Look carefully at the map of Singapore with the 1st rail track constructed by SMRT many years ago. I keep MRT cards that consist of maps and rail lines as commemorative reminder of our efforts in building a world-class MRT system.

 3.) Same here. These single-trip souvenir MRT cards featured maps and initial rail lines. The reverse are splashed with tourist attractions. Collector's items - full set being sought after nowadays.
 4. ) MILLENNIUM COMMEMORATIVE NATIONAL DAY PHONE DAY (in Limited Edition). Also Limited Mintages. Y2K is a year to remember when we crossed over to a new millennium. Now, you should understand why it has to be year 2000 and not year 2001 or 2002, 2003 ...
 5.) Before we stepped into a new millennium, we have counted down to year 1999. It was also a memorable year, important enough to deserve our attention.
 6.) The first SMARTCARD launched in Singapore, featuring the Straits Settlements.

7.) Series of limited edition Postcards in Mint Condition (Commemorative). Comes with a limited edition poster (Photo not available yet).

8.) *** Thousands of Stamps from around the World. (Photos not available --- too many to feature. Send in your enquiry if you want more details.)

PART 9: INVESTING IN BOOKS, MAGAZINES & COMICS

Dear Friends,
Do you know that not many people keep Walt Disney's classics and Marvel's Heroes original editions? That's because we've grown up and are going for books suitable for our age.

Now, do you want to buy an original first edition book for your kids? No. you don't. We rather keep it for ourselves since it will eventually appreciate in values such as (refer to Photos below) the first edition of HEIDI, THE SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON & THE HIDDEN FLOWER ... all hardcover series published in the 1950s. (A former classmate borrowed my 1st edition William Shakespeare the Great Bard's entire collection of plays and did not return me. This book is now of very high value. Blue hardcover)






Books collectors, you can bid for these books if you like. All are guaranteed in good condition.

ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS: PART 1: COCA-COLA COLLECTIBLES

ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS: "MONEY-MAKING INVESTMENTS"

Hi friends, my name is Julie Angel.

I'm here to introduce collectibles of all kinds to you.

Financial instruments cover unit trusts, stocks and shares, bonds, insurances, money market, notes, deposits, etc and many of these are rather volatile and risky.

Alternative investments are tangible products that can appreciate in value and bring in good returns.

It is definitely worth-while investing in antiques and collectibles.We have seen rises in their values unlike the fluctuations in stock markets. We can also anticipate better percentage returns from our good collections than from the interests gained on our bank deposits.

So, what makes a 'must-keep' collector's item and what's not a good buy? I've given some detailed coverage and advice for you here ...

1. 1990s Original Limited Edition, in good working and mint condition Coca-Cola CD Player. Shaped like a bottle-cap. Either battery-operated or power cord. Come with original packaging and box including instruction manuals.
2. 1990s Original Vintage Limited Edition Coca-Cola poster featuring a country-style young teenaged girl enjoying the drink.
3. One-of-a-kind Original Antiqued Coca-Cola Tin Can.
