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.

Been living in Vegas for many years and never had to sell or hock any of my items unfortunately as luck would have it that day did eventually find me and let me tell you is it a tough racket to find a decent place out here to do business with. Pawn shops are a joke and could care less about their customers and treated me like another number. Tried and tried and place after place the numbers where all over the place. Finally decided to go to these guys and I’m glad I did. They tested each piece of my jewelry right in from of me with some kind of xray machine. They explained how they calculated the price and paid me cash on the spot. Avery was very helpful and didn’t mind answering my questions and explaining what they do. I left feeling I got the best price for my items. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their jewelry.

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

Always a good experience here! Definitely the place in town I enjoy buying coins from, and I’d recommend them to anybody. Helpful staff, reasonable prices, and wide selection.

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.


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.

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.

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.

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…


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…
