  • Do I need an appointment?

    No! Never clean coins.
  • What do I need to bring to sell coins?
    If you are planning to sell coins, you must be at least 19 years of age and have a valid photo ID.
  • Do I need to sort or organize my collection before selling it?
    It is not necessary to spend any time or money arranging your collection before selling it. Our experienced staff is very efficient in sorting collections. We do appraisals with you at the purchasing desk.
  • Are there any promotions I can take advantage of?
    For a purchase of $40 or above, you are eligible to claim a 10% discount on in-store supply. Also, we are currently running an in-store supply sale. The customer can receive a discount of 10% on $40 or more (before tax) worth of supplies. Please mention the offer you want to utilize on your visit. Thinking of starting a coin or stamp collection? It can be a fun and exciting hobby and one that can turn into a great investment down the road. Coin and stamp collections are a great way to explain the investment to kids.
