Is there a set price you will pay for coins or currency?
We consider several factors when considering a coin’s value. These factors include, but are not limited to: condition, rarity, date and circulation. Las Vegas Jewelry and Coin Buyers offers free in-store appraisals of your collections while you watch. We are happy to answer any questions you have.
I have a lot of Dimes, Quarters, Nickels, and Half Dollars, what are they worth?
The value of these coins will change depending on the market and are typically bought and sold in bulk based on their silver value. Coins from 1964 and earlier are made from 90% silver. Older buffalo nickels (sometimes referred to as Indian head nickels) tend to be quite valuable. Half dollars from 1965-1970 are made from 40% silver. There are some dates that could have a higher value, so bring in your collection and an expert appraiser will give you a high cash offer.
Will cleaning or polishing my coins bring a better price?
Absolutely Not! The cleanliness or dirtiness of coins will have no effect on the coins value. We highly recommend that you not clean or polish your coins because it actually devalues them. Even using a soft cloth can leave small abrasions that a professional dealer will see thus reducing the value.
What is the best way to store my coins so they keep their value?
Coins should be stored individually to avoid contact with each other. Make sure to use approved coin containers. If you use booklets, please do not use tape to secure coins into booklets as the tape adheres to the coins, which causes discoloration reducing the value of your coins.
My silver dollar has a “V” in the word TRUST instead of a U, is this a misprint?
No. The peace dollar series from 1921-1935 all have the “V” in the word TRUST. The “V” was done by design and is not a misprint.
