An intruder has stolen a rare collection of coins, worth about $200,000, from an Adelaide home.

The owner had been collecting the coins for 30 years, police say.

The break-in at the Rosewater residence occurred some time since Monday night and was discovered on Thursday.

The intruder gained entry through a window before ransacking the premises and taking the collection.
