Coin collecting, buying, selling, and investing in coins is a pastime spanning hundreds of years that is still popular in modern times. The savvy coin collectors of today place a high value on coins containing precious metals, as well as enjoy marveling at the beauty, rarity, and historic value that coins can provide. Numismatic coins of value include US coins, foreign coins, type coins, and of course, rare key date coins, low mintage coins, and shipwreck recovered treasure coins.

Traits that distinguish a valuable coin from a common coin:


Coins without significant scratches or bag marks are more desirable to collectors. These coins will generally have a greater numismatic value than coins that are cleaned or damaged.


We buy, sell, and appraise US type coins.
