Sell Your Valuable Coins

Do you have coins that you think are valuable? Coins are the oldest form of currency and have been made from different material; gold, silver, copper, and bronze. The value of your coins largely depends on the age, rarity, and material. If you had a gold coin from the Roman Empire for example, you can easily fetch tens of thousands of dollars.

Rare coins

Minting coins in the early times required crafting by hand. This meant that coins were produced in limited quantities. Very old coins from early empires like the Roman or Chinese empires are very valuable regardless of the material they are made from. In the US coin minting was started in 1792. Coin collecting became popular in the 1850s. During the civil war, coins became rare forcing the government to replace some coins with notes. New designs by coiners such as James Earl Fraser and Augustus St. Gaudens brought on more variety. These early coins of the US are collectibles and highly sought after for their beautiful designs.
