The Lydian Kingdom, based in western Anatolia, was one of the most influential civilizations of the ancient world. Its rich history is punctuated by breakthroughs in economics and government. Notably, it is credited with the invention of coinage, with the “Lydia 610-546 BC Third Stater” being one of the earliest examples. This marked a significant milestone in the evolution of trade and commerce, shifting the world from a barter-based system to one of currency exchange. This coin, made of a gold and silver alloy known as “electrum,” demonstrated a uniform design that established its value, making trade easier and more efficient. The issuance of these coins underpinned economic growth and prosperity within the kingdom, showcasing the forward-thinking and innovative spirit of the Lydians. Today, these coins are a testament to Lydia’s pioneering role in the history of monetary economics.
Here we treat you the same as we would a coin dealer and offer incredible wholesale pricing the same pricing that a fellow coin dealer would be paying on the exact market. We will even show you this information at the time of sale from other coin buyers.
Not all silver bullion is created equal – many coin dealers will simply buy 1 oz of .999 fine silver for whatever the silver market may be. There are many both modern and vintage coins made for silver bullion that bring larger premiums beyond that.
DO YOU HAVE A SIZEABLE COLLECTION OF COINS OR INHERIT A COLLECTION THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET A QUOTE TO SELL?
Here at Arnold Jewelry & Coin, one or multiple of our coin buyers can make an appointment to come out to you and evaluate your collection. The initial cost for an evaluation is $60/hour and we can tell you individual values or pricing for the entire collection – if you end up selling the collection or part of the collection to our coin shop the hourly fee is waived. In addition to coins, we buy paper currency, cards, comics, antiques & other collector items.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A COIN DEALER TO EITHER BUY OR SELL YOUR COINS, WE CARRY BOTH PCGS & NGC CERTIFIED COINS OR WE CAN HAVE YOUR COINS GRADED AT DEALER PRICING.
Being an authorized coin dealer means we have direct accounts with PCGS & NGC – the top coin certifiers in the nation. Now than ever, it is more important to find a reputable coin dealer as with each year better and better counterfeits are being made and sold – lots of people end up getting taken advantage of trusting an unknown coin buyer. Counterfeit coins have led to a major increase in certified coin grading and authentication, beware of any coin shop you are unable to call directly or locate their direct physical location. Many false coin dealers or coin shops pop up online offering deals too good to seem true both graded and ungraded coins – if you feel this way it is likely the case. Be wary of these websites posing to be “coin dealers” look at the other items they are selling other than coins or check their google reviews/business information.
