World Coins

We purchase all coins from anywhere in the world that are composed of precious metal (Gold, Silver & Platinum) These coins fall under the broad categories of World Coins and World Bullion. The value of most bullion coins is usually very closely linked to its intrinsic metal value. Numismatic world coins can be quite collectible and valuable even though they have little intrinsic metal value.

 

Ancients

Ancients is a general term for the earliest coins of the world struck between 600 BC and 500 AD. Ancient coins are a very specialized field and have a great range in value.  From the very common, highly circulated specimens priced at under $25, to the very rare, high grade coins priced in the tens of thousands, ancient coins are amongst the most fascinating in all of Numismatics.
