We set those rare coins aside until we are completely done with all the other items.  Then we check to see what the rare coins have sold for recently.

We use NGC, PCGS, EBay and Worth Point to see past sales history of your rare coins.  From this information, we make you an offer.

And we make sure that offer includes the best prices for rare coins in Olympia.

Here is what some of our happy customers say

Frank took his time and wrote everything down.  He looked at each coin.  He said he was looking for rare dates and wouldn't you know it, he found a 1913-S Quarter that he offered me $2000 for.  You can just imagine how shocked I was especially when you consider the coin store that did the first appraisal didn't tell me about this 1913 quarter.

Elenor W., 5 Star Google Review

I have been a customer of Frank's for almost 3 years now. From my experience he is the most fair and knowledgeable on precious metals and coins that I found in our area. He is always available and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend this business.
