Hearing the word Gold can conjure up images of wealth, Gold jewelry, and Gold bullion. Gold is listed as AU on the periodic table of elements. The atomic number for Gold is 79. Gold is very dense, meaning Gold is very heavy for its size. Gold is also the most malleable metal, with a single gram of Gold being able to be beaten into a 1 square meter sheet. Because of the inherent softness of Gold, most Gold jewelry is typically alloyed.

This process creates karat Gold. Most Gold jewelry in America is 10 karat (41.7% pure) Gold or 14 karat (58.5% pure) Gold. Also available is 8 karat (33.3% pure) Gold, 9 karat (37.5% pure) Gold, 18 karat(75% pure) Gold, 21 karat(87.5% pure) Gold, 22 karat (91.6% pure) Gold, and rarely 24 karat(99.99% pure) Gold. Alloying Gold also allows you to create different color Gold jewelry, including white Gold, green Gold, and rose Gold.

Gold has been used as money and jewelry since ancient times. Gold was popular in Ancient Egypt and Rome. Gold was used to make large Gold funeral mask’s for Egyptian Pharaohs. Gold was so important to the Romans that they developed new hydraulic mining methods for finding Gold. They were able to extract large Gold deposits with the new Gold mining methods. Many people like to use Gold as an investment in addition to Gold jewelry.

Gold is typically in the form of Gold bullion. Gold bullion can be made and sold by private mints, such as Credit Suisse. Gold bullion is also minted by various countries. Popular Gold bullion coins include the American Gold Eagle, the Chinese Gold Panda, the South African Gold Krugerrand and the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf. These Gold bullion coins minted by various countries often have a monetary value, but that value is less than the intrinsic value of the Gold in these Gold bullion coins.

Most Gold bullion coins are issued in 22 karat Gold, like the Gold Krugerrand or 24 karat Gold like the Gold Panda and Gold Buffalo, and come in one ounce Gold bullion sizes, along with various fractions of an ounce. The reason people like Gold as an investment is that Gold can be a hedge against inflation. Gold can also be used to keep wealth in the face of a collapsing economy, as the Gold will still have value in the currency of other countries.

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to meet the owner and team at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. I didn’t know what to expect but they made me feel both comfortable and safe. I went through my collection of jewelry, both broken pieces and things I thought were of no value at all. They took the time to explain what each carat weight was worth and they helped me sort through my items. I was amazed at what they gave me for things I would never wear or use. I would recommend you stop in and speak to them, you might be as pleasantly surprised as I was.

As a first timer in selling, I was a bit apprehensive. I did not know what to expect and was a little worried about a previous reviewers comments. Yes the office was stark and clinical. The staff however, more than made up for any downfall in the decor. Very helpful, polite and understanding to any ‘silly’ questions that were asked. All in all a pleasant experience, and one that should the opportunity arise I would go through again!

I recently got divorced so I wanted to get rid of some of the jewelry my ex-husband got me. I found Nevada Coin and jewelry searching the web. When I called the guy that answered the phone was friendly and willing to quote me a price per gram. I went to their store on Flamingo, Avery whom I spoke to on the phone tested my items using some kind of x-ray machine. I could see that some of my jewelry was not the karat I thought (some lower some higher). He paid what he quoted on the phone no bait and switch. It took less than 15 minutes got my cash and got rid of some bad memories. I would recommend this company if you are looking to sell jewelry.

We were really pleased with the help that AJ gave us concering our gold coins and watches. I don’t think we could have received a better deal anywhere. All of the personnel at Nevada Coin & Jewelry were very professional. We will recommend them to our friends.

They took the time to help me sell my item and find an item. The staff does not rush you or pressure you into buying something. They take you on a little adventure by telling you about the items you are selling and looking at…

A.J. and Robert are so friendly and make it so you have the best deal with the items you bring them. They have so much knowledge about all the items they have in their shop and they like to teach others about what they know…


I am a brazilian and had the chance to deal with Nevada Coin. I was there to sell some gold coins and they paid me the best price I could fetch in Las Vegas. They are professional, courteous and trustworthy. Before visiting their premises I got a tentative appraisal by phone which I found reasonable. In the shop the attendant offered to approach the manager to get me a (gasp) BETTER price. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother talking to their rude and unprofessional competitors. They will treat you like a moron and quote prices accordingly. For Nevada Coin, five Stars all the way.


Outstanding experience! This is the best place to change your gold with a great attention. I’m completely impressive because they have a smooth and fast service, definitely nice people!

I brought them some gold pendants, rings and a few other pieces. I knew they weren’t worth that much but I needed the cash. The guys (and there are a lot of them) were really nice and not the least bit condescending. They know when you come in to sell there is a reason but they don’t make you feel bad or inadequate. The store is filled with interesting objects for sale and for show. A very nice and very fair place to buy and sell. I highly recommend them.

What friendly staff. They help you sell your items even if they don’t have a use for it by calling other shops around the area to see if they could use it… They want you to have the best out come from selling your items. I was so happy I decided to go to them!


While vacationing in Las Vegas I did what a lot of people do I’m sure or at least that’s what I’m telling my wife ..I blew through the money I brought a little quicker than expected and I ended up having to shop my Rolex around to several dealers to save the trip. So I looked online for places, most offers over the phone were low and that’s if they would even quote me in the first place. I spoke to a guy at Nevada Coin and Jewelry who gave me a fair ball park price and a reasonable explanation as to why his number couldn’t be solid. Went down expecting to get the lower number and in fact Robert their Rolex expert said my Rolex was a better model then I had described. He paid me a higher number than he quoted. Thanks for saving my vacation guys.

What inspired me to go to NV Coin and Jewelry was I was an ad on the TV for the shop. I was not too sure about going to NV Coin and Jewelry to sell my jewelry because I have been to many other pawn shops but haven’t found a good deal for my jewelry. After I went to Nevada Coin and Jewelry it was a big relief for me selling my jewelry for a good price.
