How To Sell Your Coin Collection

If you don’t know where or how to start selling your coin collection, Certified Coin Consultants has some tips just for you. Selling your coin collection is a process. Naturally, you’ll want to get the best and fair price for what you have. If you want to do some research on the coins that you have, purchase the latest version of Richard Yeoman’s coin guide book. It is often referred to as “The Official Red Book.” You need to get your coin collection appraised. While you may consider some options such as going to a pawn shop, auction house, etc., the best option is finding a coin dealer that you can trust. Why choose a coin dealer over other options? Pawn shops don’t know much or anything at all when it comes to coins. Auction houses charge a fee for items in their house. Coin dealers are knowledgeable about coins and will assist you in any way he or she can. A coin dealer can also send coins to be graded by a reputable coin grading company such as Professional Coin Grading Company and Numismatic Guarantee Corporation.


Trust is important in building any type of relationship. A trustworthy coin dealer is one that is knowledgeable in numismatics; he or she should be an expert in the field. It is important find and build a relationship with a trustworthy coin dealer. Unfortunately, many dealers in the coin business are shady and will cheat naïve customers. A shady dealer may pay a price that is significantly less than what the coins are actually worth. For example, a dealer may pay $400 for the coins when they were really worth $1,000. In order for you to get the most money for your Numismatic coin collection you must use a company who specializes in Numismatic coins and not your average WE BUY GOLD or Pawn shop.​


Investigate a coin dealer’s reputation. Visit the dealer’s website, social media accounts, and other affiliated websites. You may find reviews from their customers. Check if the coin dealer has a storefront. Take a visit to the storefront and speak with the coin dealer if possible. Speak to and build a relationship with the coin dealer. Building trust is the foundation of any type of relationship. Once you’ve determined that the coin dealer is both knowledgeable in numismatics and trustworthy, you can sell your coin collection. You can also purchase coins from that same coin dealer as well.  A trustworthy coin dealer will always be fair and offer clients great prices.
