Mercury Head Dime (1943) Mercury Dimes, which neither depict the Greek god nor contain the chemical element were issued from 1916 to 1945. Franklin Silver Half Dollar (1963) No one foresaw the Mint ending production of the Franklin Silver Half Dollar after 1963. Kennedy's sudden assassination prompted his commemoration on all 50-cent pieces starting the following year. Morgan Silver Dollar (1889) Morgan dollars were first made in 1878, and stopped production in 1921. The value depends on certain rare dates and conditions. Remember, NEVER clean your coins! Silver Eagle (2004) Silver eagles are a popular way to invest in silver, and also make nice gifts. Proof condition eagles are encased in plastic and come with a government box. St. Gauden's $20 Double Eagle (1927) From 1907 to 1933, the St. Gauden Double Eagle enforced the gold standard in American currency. In 1933, production ceased when Franklin Roosevelt ordered the coins to be traded-in and replaced with paper money. Buffalo Nickel (1935) The Buffalo Nickel predates the Jefferson Nickel and is widely traded among numismatists. The coin's copper-and-nickel composition is particularly prone to wear, often leaving the date nearly indecipherable. Buffalo nickels are a popular start to a collection. Silver Bars More than just a precious metal, silver holds value thanks to a heavy industrial demand. These lustrous bars are easily handled, stacked, and stored. We handle 1 ounce, 10 ounce and 100 ounce sizes, along with 1 ounce rounds. Trading silver is made easier by the precise weights and purity measurements stamped directly into the bars.

Would I do better selling my coins at an online auction?

We can pay a very competative price for your coins, and make it an easy, pleasant experience. The problem with selling at an online auction, is all the work that is necessary. On top of that, you better know what you all have and how to group them and list them accurately to actually get something near to a good price. Lastly you have to pay all the listing fees, commissions, postage, and deal with getting paid, shipping, etc. We do occasionally sell on Ebay - but we have learned that the best things to sell there are the unique items (interesting tokens, etc.) that not everyone has.
