Prices Offered

 

At American Coin, we feel that nobody should have to guess as to the value of a coin. As a first step in that direction, here we present a list of prices that we offer for coins. Of course, these prices are less than full retail. However, these are real offers for coins. The coins must be problem free and meet the grading criteria to warrant these prices. *****See our mail order page for additional information before sending any coins.****

For more information on grading coins, we invite you to visit our Grading page.

*NOTE* All pricing based off $1700 gold, $35 silvers
