Gold American Coin

Why is it that the gold American coin is at the heart of every numismatic and investment collection of coins around the world? Simple, because the gold American coin stands out consistently as one of the most beautifully designed and crafted coins in the world. The gold American coin comes in many shapes and sizes and once there was even an official commemorative gold American coin made in an octagonal shape: the 1915 Panama-Exposition commemorative gold American coin. For many years, from around the beginning of our nation running all the way up to 1933, the United States made many variations of the gold American coin for circulation.

Even then the gold American coins that were used for purchasing goods and services were coveted for their aesthetic appeal and overall design beauty. The official United States mint denominations for the gold American coin generally circulated were: the 1 dollar gold American coin, the 2.5 dollar gold American coin, the 3 dollar gold American coin, the 5 dollar gold American coin, the 10 dollar gold American coin and the 20 dollar gold American coin. Today, although the gold American coin is produced mainly for investment and numismatic purposes, there still is a denomination on each coin and they can still be used as legal tender.

The denominations made on the modern gold American coin include the 5 dollar gold American coin, the 10 dollar gold American coin, the 25 dollar gold American coin and the 50 dollar gold American coin. These denominations, as well as the denominations for any pre-1933 gold American coin, do not represent the gold content of the coins and it is recommended not to spend a gold American coin on anything without consulting one of the coin professionals at Nevada Coin & Jewelry first.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.


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

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…

We were really pleased with the help that AJ gave us concering our gold coins and watches. I don’t think we could have received a better deal anywhere. All of the personnel at Nevada Coin & Jewelry were very professional. We will recommend them to our friends.

Dean & Judy

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 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.
