Rare Coins Value

Many times, when determining a rare coins value, there tends to be a lengthy laundry list of qualifiers one must address. A rare coins value can become a highly subjective thing and determining a rare coins value has created many passionate debates among highly respected numismatists with many years of experience to rely upon. One of the biggest determining factors on that laundry list of qualifiers is finding an active market that will be reflective of that rare coins value. A coin can be a singular, unique rarity but if nobody is interested in the coin, the rare coins value could be nothing at all. Once a coin is identified as a rare coin, it then becomes subjected to several levels of scrutiny from the trained eye of a coin professional so that the rare coins value can be properly assessed. Authenticating a rare coin is generally the first step in this process as many coins from both the U.S., as well as countries from around the world, have been counterfeited. Unfortunately, much like in any collectible world, the state of counterfeiting has grown in direct proportion to the markets themselves, often leaving a rare coins value and authenticity in question.

A rare coins value can often be simplified in discovering whether or not that rare coin is even desired by coin collectors in general. Most rare coins, however, will find an eager and thriving market and the rare coins value could be something quite considerable. For the layman, finding a rare coins value can be a painstaking process filled with hours of historical research, internet searches and trips to the library as well as pouring through many books in an attempt to identify and classify the rare coin. Ultimately, once doing this research, one can discover that the intangible of market popularity can throw all that research out the window. Or worse still: one could come to the conclusion that the coin is not a rarity at all, which would extinguish any hope of it having a rare coins value and rendering all that time mired in research wasted.

However, once determining it actually is a rare coin, or a coin that has a significantly reduced population in comparison to its counterparts, the best course of action is to bring the coin or coins in to a coin professional at Nevada Coin & Jewelry, where we can verify the authenticity of the rare coin and estimate the rare coins value with a level of accuracy based directly on our vast wealth of knowledge and years of training and expertise. Or, to avoid the frustration of fruitless hours of research only to find that your coin has a population of millions, just bring it in, along with any other coins you may have questions about, to any one of the Nevada Coin & Jewelry locations serving the Las Vegas Valley and put our knowledge to work for you.

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…

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!

Great family run store. I’m well taken care of every time I show up at this location. Thank you Nick.

Grateful for the Nevada Coin and Jewelry shop, I just adore it. I took some collectable figurines in and they bought them. I came out smelling like a rose. You should’ve been there to see the big smile on my face. I ran all the way home to look for some more. Can’t wait to get back! I can sure use the money!


Wonderful experience, Nick and Laura made it seamless and stress free. Thank you! They also sell super cool items!!

This place is definitely recommended!!! A.J. and David are amazing…very helpful and nice people at that! I would totally consider going to this place.

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.

The staff are quick at work but not too quick to make you feel pressured into buying items or selling your items. They teach you about the items and tell you if they have use for your items or not. If they don’t have use for your items they call other places to see if they have a use for the items. Great staff!


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.

My Aunt recently passed and she lived in the outskirts of Las Vegas. While my sister and I went through her estate we found a number of items that neither of us considered keeping, but our aunt was clear in her will that she wanted us to use her things to make a profit and in turn use that money to help our futures. We shopped around, especially not being from the area, and got a lot of negative experiences just on the phone. People were rude, uninformative, and really just gave us a feeling they wanted to rip us off. It made us think of those dirty pawn shops you “hear about”. Finally I called Nevada Coin and Jewelry and the whole day shifted! We described a few pieces of jewelry and they helped us figure out initially a general value based on the metal. Of course, they did explain the importance of actually coming in and examining the pieces individually. That level of service over the phone got us through the door. When we went to the spot we were greeted with the same level courtesy, but the professionalism when going over each item and it’s value was through the roof! They took the time to explain why each item was worth what amount and even gave us a little bit of history on the styles. At the end of the day, my sister and I walked away with a sizable amount of money to put towards my son’s college fund and my sister’s vet school. Thanks, Nevada Coin and Jewelry!
