We here at Metro Pawn & Gun are big fans of collectible coins, coins made of precious metals, and other rare coins and currencies. Coins from around the world and throughout the ages are not only valuable, but each one carries along its own little cross-section of history! Can you imagine where a WWII Nickel may have been? Or a gold 5 Ruble coin with Russian Czar Nikolai from 1899, steeped in a turbulent past and witness to events that shaped our world! We stock silver quarters and dimes, WWII nickels and pennies, and innumerable other treasures from around the globe - and are always on the lookout for rare coins you may want to sell or pawn.
When shopping for various numismatic treasures, the most common destination is a Coin Shop. After all, people looking for car parts probably go to an automotive store, and people looking for hair products likely call on the Styling Salon. But the next time that visiting a Coin Shop happens to be on your schedule, stop by Metro Pawn & Gun and have a look around. Coin collectors come in all shapes and sizes – from the aspiring child getting into his first real coin collection that all started with that silver dime he found in his piggy bank, to the seasoned professional who examines his specimens under a loupe.
You will be amazed by our vast selection of merchandise, and impressed by the grading skills of our knowledgeable staff. The primary purpose of grading a coin is to determine what the coin's market value is based on how and when the coin was originally struck, how well the coin itself has been preserved, and how much wear and damage the coin has suffered since it was minted. These variables could make a 1907 Saint-Gaudens double eagle $20 gold coin worth a million dollars, or only $17,000. Conversely, it could make the first 1943 copper penny worth $82,000.
And finally, the opportunity cost of our prices as compared to ‘full-retail’ Coin Shops will allow that collection to grow ever faster. Our appraisal of coins received in pawn or by sale takes into account their condition, scarcity, and valuation, thus making your purchase commensurate to what can be found at any specialty Coin Shop. And if you happen to be looking for car parts or that antique Barber Shop Chair, we might just have what you need as well!
