All coins and currency dated 1964 and before are highly sought after by collectors. But if you have old coins, where do you find these collectors? For five days, The National Coin Collectors Association is bringing collectors to Jacksonville, where collectors will be purchasing all types of coins, currency, mint sets, proof sets, silver dollars, and gold and silver bullion from the general public.
Coin collecting has been popular for over 200 years, although the original United States mint was opened in Philadelphia in 1792.
Since the beginning, collectors have shown interest in all types of coins and currency.
“While some collectors only look for Silver Dollars others might collect pennies or nickels,” according to an NCCA release. “All collectors have different desires and all collectors have their favorites. One thing all collectors have in common is that they are always on the lookout for items to add to their collections.”
During the NCCA coin and currency "Treasure Hunt," collectors invite anyone with old coins and currency to attend the event. At the event collectors will examine and discuss coins and currency dated 1964 and older, the news release said.
“These collectors want to purchase items from you,” the release states. “If you agree to take their offer and sell your coins you will be paid in cash.”
The types of items they are looking for include: all United States coins and currency dated 1792-1964; all foreign coins – all dates; any Silver Dollars dated 1792-1976; wheat Pennies; 90 percent silver bullion; Kennedy Half Dollars; Washington Quarters; Roosevelt Dimes; Buffalo Nickels; and all the counties dated 1964 and earlier.
Gold jewelry buyers will also be on site. Gold prices remain high, making this a great time to sell it if you have it, the association said; class rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, wedding sets, engagement rings – all have great value right now. Even dental gold will be purchased.
Additionally, diamonds are always sought after and very valuable. If jewelry contains diamonds, owners will be paid for both the gold and the diamonds.
