Rare Coin Values

On the one hand, coin values for generic, common date and grade pieces are often quite easy to determine by reference to a price guide. On the other hand, rare coin values for special coins (e.g., due to rarity, condition, eye appeal, etc.) can be much more difficult to determine for both collectors and dealers. The process of determining coin values in these circumstances is equal parts art and science. It requires a trained eye and a painstaking attention to detail. Even after an experienced collector has studied every nuance of a given coin, they must then extrapolate a value from the corresponding coin price guides to make certain that their assessment is in line with accepted coin prices for similar quality coins.

At, we take coin pricing very seriously. We want to help our customers protect and grow their coin collection value. If you have any doubts about U.S. coin values or the value of any coins in your collection, please contact us today.
