How to appraise vintage coins

Apr 15th, 2023 · 2 min read

OK, you’ve got a whole bunch of vintage coins. Maybe you’ve inherited a collection, or perhaps you’ve been picking them up at conventions or in sales down the years. Now the time has come when you are starting to think about coin appraisals.

At this stage, chances are your mind will be full of questions. Who appraises vintage coins? How much does a vintage coin appraisal cost? Where can I find a vintage coin appraiser?

How can you trust the coin ‘experts’?

The next step will be to look for vintage coin appraisals online. Because there is one clear answer we all want to know – how much is my vintage coin collection worth?

When we’re selling anything where expert knowledge is vital, it can be nerve-racking. We fear that our coin collection could be undervalued.

Also, we may feel restricted by our geographical area. What happens if you Google ‘coin dealers in my area?’ and there is only one within a 50-mile radius? Do you trust in that being the best vintage coin appraisal you will get? Or do you feel slightly nervous that you are more likely to fall victim to unscrupulous or incompetent valuers in a region where there’s a lack of choice.

An accurate valuation for your vintage coins is vital if you are to make an informed decision.
