Stock and bond certificates are collected because of their historical significance, beauty and artwork, autographs, notoriety, as well as many other factors. The supply of new certificates reaching the collector market has been substantially reduced due to changes in state laws and stock exchanges rules. Many companies are no longer required to issue paper stock and bond certificates, and only issue them in electronic form. This has increased the collectability of the existing paper certificates due to their scarcity.

Scripophily (scrip-ah-fil-ly) is the name of the hobby of collecting old stock and bond certificates. Values range from a few dollars to more than $500,000 for the most unique and rare.
