Getting your coins valued in the Midwest

Getting an appraisal for your coin collection should be quick and easy – and you should leave with a clear idea of what your rare coins are worth. Why? Because no-one wants to waste hours at a time debating whether or not to sell your coin collection because you’re not 100% confident about the valuation you’ve been given.

So, what options do you have? Making your way across the Midwest with your coin collection rolling around in the trunk is not exactly how you pictured this going down. Not only is it a chore for you – you’re also at risk of damaging or losing coins in your collection. Worst of all, when you’ve travelled all that way, it’s easy to feel obliged to accept a lowball offer for your coins at that stage just to feel it was worth the time you took out of your schedule.

But there is more than one way to get your coin appraisal.

You can get an accurate valuation completely free with minimal effort on your part by taking up Coinfully’s offer of a free coin appraisal online, or for larger coin collections, we’ll even come to your home or preferred meeting place and appraise your coins in person. That way, you can avoid the headache that comes with trying to sell an inherited coin collection you might know very little about. Even if you’ve collected the coins yourself, it’s always useful to find out what the current market value and demand is for your coins.

Get an online appraisal, it’s quick and easy

 Our 3-step clear coin appraisal system is a great way to get your coins appraised for free if you live in the Midwest as you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home.

1 – To start, let’s chat over the phone or via email so we can start to understand your collection and let you know whether an in-person appraisal or an online valuation will work better for you.

2 – We usually ask for some photos or a more detailed description of your coins, to help avoid any inaccuracies. We have a guide to taking photos here. We’ll give you an appraisal on the spot and when you are ready to sell, you can literally take it to the bank! Our documentation is also accepted by insurance companies, legal processes, and much more.

3 – If you choose to sell to accept our offer and have opted for the online appraisal option, we’ll ask you to ship your coins to us, which we’ll open under 4k security cameras before verifying your collection. Once done, we’ll send the payment immediately. All packages are fully insured by Lloyd’s of London.

 For some, the comfort of speaking to someone face-to-face about a cherished collection they may have inherited can calm their nerves about parting ways with something that could be worth a lot of money. Our Midwest coin appraisal team is based out of Indiana, not too far from where the first American Numismatic Association Convention took place in Chicago in 1891. Our friendly coin experts are on-call and ready to provide you with industry-leading knowledge of your rare coin collection.
