"Life is too short to buy ugly coins."
February 22, 2018. We have reduced the price of the 2017 Limited Edition Silver Proof Sets. We are slowly listing more and more beautifully toned Lincoln cents and other coins on our site. (Click Rainbow-Toned Rarities in the menu bar to the left to get an idea.) If you are Lincoln cent aficionados and experts as we are, you know that oftentimes Brown examples grade-for-grade at PCGS are more elusive than Red coins, yet can be had for a fraction of the price! Finding them is the hard part! Please take a good look around, send us your want lists, and Bookmark this page!
We have recently gotten approval as a CAC submission center so we will be sending many of our current coins off as time allows. Most of our coins have NOT been to CAC, marking an opportunity for you to buy NOW coins that we consider high-end or solid for the grade (which is what the CAC green bean means).
The Wait Is Over! We were lucky enough (no, that's not a strong enough word; we were extremely fortunate) to be able to buy an original hoard of gorgeously toned, completely original Mexico 8 Reales (and a pair of 1 Pesos) from various mints over the years from 1839 to 1901. The standard reference to the series is (highly recommended!) Mike Dunigan and J.B. Parker's Resplandores: Cap and Rays 8 Reales of the Republic of Mexico 1823–1897. All of these are low-pop PCGS-certified coins with TrueView images. These are simply coins of a quality you don't see every day -- or even every year! We have completed listing those, and you can see the results for yourselves. Hopefully, my readers and potential buyers will enjoy reading about these wonderful coins as much as I enjoyed writing about them. (But stay tuned! I think there may be a possibility for some 4 Reales in the future, which are even rarer!)

No Orders Accepted From Minnesota. Due to the Minnesota state law regarding "bullion coins" (a definition that is absurdly broad makes nearly any silver, gold, or platinum coin fall under it), we must refuse any orders received from Minnesota residents. Click for more info.
Virginia Sales Tax. The Commonwealth recently exempted sales tax for "bullion purchases" totaling over $1,000. This defines such purchases as: refined to at least 90% gold, silver, or platinum; varying with the price of the underlying metal and not on rarity, condition, age, or other external factor; and selling for a price not exceeding 120% of the precious metal value. Otherwise, we charge Virginia residents 5.3% sales tax unless they provide us their resale number.
