Time to dig out what you’ve got in the attic. A recent report covering data over the last 15 years shows that Lego has increased in value more than gold.
A report in the Daily Telegraph shows that the average value of a box of good condition Lego has increased in value more than gold since the year 2000.
On average, the rate of return you can expect from a set of Lego is 12.0% over the last 15 years compared to a return of 9.6% on gold.
Ed Maciorowski, the founder of brickpicker.com, a Lego investing and price guide website told the Telegraph: “The neat thing is that all sets are retired at some point, and several hundred are retired each year a movie run ends, a license expires or the Lego company wants to refresh its range,”
The data on the site shows that 50% of the most valuable Lego stars are Star Wars themed, which are likely to continue going up in value as the franchise has more life pumped into it.
Mr. Maciorowski said it’s possible anyone with a Lego set at home may have a good investment on their hands as the value continues to appreciate well.
