While for many of us stamps collections are meant for either children or septuagenarians, China has developed a serious business out of this.
As a matter of fact, China provides about one-third of the world’s stamp collectors and there is a strong reason for these statistics. When they are rare enough, these Chinese stamps come with staggering seven figures prices. While the stock market is a gold mine for other countries, collectible stamps are considered a much more stable investment for China’s wealthy.
Moreover, the trend shows that these stamps collections are likely to go up in value in the following years due to the far above estimated Asian auction sales. Once auctioned, these antique stamps become incredible expensive.
