Coin Collector

Every family has a coin collector, or had a coin collector. And every coin collector has undoubtedly clogged closet and garage space with their vast numismatic treasures, leaving the family to have to deal with the coins of the coin collector when the coin collector loses interest, or, in unfortunate cases, the coin collector moves on from this world. A coin collector is a different breed from your every day average collector of things. This is true because the coin collector has always found an appreciation in money and things that will generally have some kind of value. For example, the coin collector who collects American coins and currency has held on to things that will never lose value below that of their face value.

Unlike other items collected, that move in and out of fancy with the times, a coin collector can have real faith in knowing that, in being a coin collector, his or her coin collection will likely be worth more than just the time and money put into it. A coin collector who became a coin collector in the 1960’s or earlier likely picked up every day, circulated coins that had silver in them for at or close to face value. Based on the silver content, the coin collector did very well considering that nowadays even the worst or most common examples of those coins would be worth considerably more than just their face value. A coin collector who became a coin collector in the 1950’s likely was able to pick up American silver dollars for just their face value as well. And if the coin collector passed these coins down to his relatives, they could find some serious value as these silver dollar coins, provided by that relentless coin collector, commonly trade for more than ten dollars each, and some cases much more than just that.

Sometimes, that coin collector member of the family can go misunderstood and often times other family members find themselves confused as to why the coin collector is so ardent in his approach to being a coin collector and holding on to old coins and currency. What most people don’t realize is that the coin collector is doing a big favor for the rest of the family just by being themselves, a true coin collector.

Even the coin collector who saved thousands of Lincoln Wheat pennies from back in the day has doubled their overall investment, as those coins commonly trade for two cents each on the open market today, making being an old fashioned coin collector a very profitable hobby to have undertook. And that is, of course, if the coin collector didn’t manage to come across one of the key dates of the Lincoln Wheat penny series. If they did, you might just be owing a huge thanks to that coin collector as they might have put some serious money into your pocket.

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.

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!

Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive. Building had great security to helped me feel safe in handling my items.

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…

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!


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.


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 am a brazilian and had the chance to deal with Nevada Coin. I was there to sell some gold coins and they paid me the best price I could fetch in Las Vegas. They are professional, courteous and trustworthy. Before visiting their premises I got a tentative appraisal by phone which I found reasonable. In the shop the attendant offered to approach the manager to get me a (gasp) BETTER price. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother talking to their rude and unprofessional competitors. They will treat you like a moron and quote prices accordingly. For Nevada Coin, five Stars all the way.


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.


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!


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.
