Rare Coin FAQ
What will you buy?
We currently only buy world coinage as bulk obsolete coinage & currency for a very low price. If world money is still in current use the best option is to spend it BEFORE leaving the country that issues it. If you still have paper money left the banks will exchange it, but no one will exchange coinage due to the high cost of transporting it. We buy it as obsolete coinage to sell to collectors by the pound.
What makes a coin collectable?
Are there coin alternatives out there?
Yes! Some alternative coins out there include:

Likely, if your coin does not feature a mint, it was a product of Philadelphia.

What makes a coin a coin instead of a token or commemorative?
When a country makes a coin to commemorate a special event or anniversary, but does not release the coins into circulation it is called a commemorative. The US makes several Commemorative halves and dollars each year to spotlight important aspects of: our culture, society, historically important locations or important people.
