Old Coin Prices

Old coin prices in today’s market place have taken quite a hit. Ever since the coin collecting peak of the late 1980’s, old coin prices have continued to see a downturn, especially in the commemorative and foreign markets. When attempting to wade through the market hoping to find old coin prices that are stable from year to year, the novice and resourceful coin collectors alike will inevitably come to the same conclusion: it is nearly impossible. With the ever fluctuating precious metal markets, niche collectible markets falling downhill and, in some cases, completely off the cliff and a waning public interest in coin collecting overall, it becomes tougher and tougher to find old coin prices that remain stable or that move upward. However, better dates and key dates within most U.S. coin series have continued to garner interest and have comparatively escalated in recent years, driving some old coin prices into higher and higher numbers.

Key dates and better dates are coins within the many different series, or denomination and designs, of minted coins that tend to peak the interest of coin collectors from young to old. The old coin prices of these special coins can carry a significant premium. One must remember that, when determining old coin prices, old doesn’t necessarily mean rare or valuable. Old coin prices often are spread out from end to end on the spectrum and are determined by several key variables. Some of these variables that can effect old coin prices are condition, rarity, popularity, precious metal content and historical relevance. Old coin prices can also be subject to large swings from region to region and market place to market place. Some old coin prices can be higher in the eastern United States because there is still a larger coin collector base there in comparison to the western United States, where coin collecting has taken a downturn, creating a more unstable market for old coin prices.

Really cool cats over at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. You would’ve thought that I was “Madonna” the way those guys treated me. I was so mesmerized by all of the antiques, they have in there, I believe I was there for two hours, just looking, unbelieveable! When I went in I was so hot, they offered me a cold bottle of water, how cool is that? It felt like home to me. I wanted to get a price for some old jewelry that was passed down by grandma, I was well satisfied. When I left the shop, I was singing “Money, Money, Money.


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 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!


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.

A great selection of coins and other numismatic related material. Very professional.

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…

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.

This dealer was beyond excellent in all respects! No low-ball games, no fooling around. These people are honest, and the transaction was handled smoothly with complete transparency. I will definitely recommend Nevada Coin & Jewelry to everybody I know!

After visiting a couple of the “traveling gold & silver merchants” who came to Mesquite, I made a call to Nevada Coin & Jewelry in Las Vegas… David was very helpful and professional. Their prices were the best I had seen… I left very satisfied with my trip and the deals we made. I will definitely go there again.
