Walk-ins always welcome.
If you'd like to make an appointment, feel free to give us a call and ask any other preliminary questions you may have. Or, just walk in anytime! We're open weekdays from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm, and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. (Closed on Sundays.)
Because the prices of gold and silver are in constant flux, we check the markets constantly--except on weekends when the markets are closed. For the most accurate price quotes on bullion-specific appraisals and purchases, we do reccomend that you walk in during the week when the markets are open.
Individual Coin Appraisals
Don't know what your coin is worth? We'll gladly tell you its value on the spot with complete transparency--for free. There's no pressure to sell, so you can make up your own mind once you have all the information.
Appraisals on Collections
If we can appraise a collection efficiently on the spot, we'll do so, and you'll pay no fee (this is usually the case). However, if your coin collection is expansive and needs extensive grading, we may need some time to complete it. In this case, we charge an hourly fee or a fixed percentage. If you choose to sell to us after the appraisal is completed, we'll waive the fee.
