5 Surefire Tips To Find A Good Coin Dealer

coin-dealer-photo-by-click-the-shutter.jpg One of the best parts about coin collecting is that we have coin dealers to go to so we can:

  • Buy old and rare coins
  • Purchase coin books and coin albums
  • Get a coin appraisal
  • Pick up the newest coin supplies
  • Ask questions of about our coins

Finding the right coin dealer can be difficult sometimes, though. After all, there are so many to choose from online, and you probably have more than 1 or 2 nearby if you live in or near a big city.

Here are 5 tips to find the right coin dealer for you:

  • Seek an experienced and knowledgeable coin dealer.
  • Solid coin dealers can cover losses in case of fire, theft, or if a counterfeit coin is accidentally sold.
  • Find a coin dealer with a good history. Check with the Better Business Bureau for guidance on this.
  • Is the coin dealer honest and fair?
  • Good coin dealers offer refunds or exchange policies.

Did you know the ANA (American Numismatic Association) has a coin dealer guide?

All you do is type in your state, city, and/or zip code to get a list of coin dealers in your area.

Coin dealers are THE main source for your coin needs. Think of them this way: whether you’re buying or selling old coins, or need new coins, coin supplies, or coin books, coin dealers are your one-stop shopping for anything and everything you will want for your coin hobby!

While different coin dealers focus on different areas of numismatics (some work with U.S. modern coins while other ancient coinage), the philosophy is essentially always the same: coin dealers are a coin collector’s best friend.

My love for coins and numismatics began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I'm a member of both the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG). I've also been studying meteorology and watching weather patterns for years. I enjoy sharing little-known facts and fun stuff about coins, weather, travel, health, food, and living green.
