Coin collectors have been around since before the Roman Empire, and more and more collectors are born every minute!! 

People collect coins & paper currency for all different reasons. Rarity, Condition, Artistry, and Educational reasons are just several of the main reasons. 

 Rarity and condition are the two biggest factors that determine the value of a coin, and just slight differences in mint locations, and microscopic condition issues can make HUGE differences in value.  The most important thing we tell everyone about their coins – DO NOT CLEAN THEM.  Keep them all in the exact original state you have them in now.  Cleaning, no matter how gentle or innocent it may seem, damages the surface and patina of the coins, and drives the value down on them.  When it comes to coins – aging, toning, discoloration, and even grime, are good things!

The artistry of commemorative coins, and the educational factor of many coins (Learning about Presidential history, legal decisions, culture etc..) are other great reasons to collect coins.

Many coins are minted in the precious metals of silver and gold, and occasionally platinum.  These valuable metals lock in a high-floor value for coins, and as the metals markets rise, so do your coins!  What’s better to collect than money itself?!

Finally, coins capture moments of time in history.  One single coin or dollar bill may have passed through thousands of hands throughout history to conduct thousands of transactions.  The same Silver Dollar Abraham Lincoln bought a 10 gallon hat with may have been used by Billy the Kid to buy a glass of scotch with, and so on…  These coins will outlive all of us, but when we can obtain and collect them throughout our lives, it connects us to all of this history!!

Gold Coins
All US gold coins have premiums above their gold values unless they have received unsightly damage such as nicks, scratches, solder, polishing or cleaning.

Foreign Coins
We separate out the silver and gold coins from the non-precious metals coins, and pay separate amounts for these distinctions.  Then we separate out the British Pounds, Canadian currency and Euros and pay more for those. The remainder are purchased by the pound.
