Numismax works with many individuals who have painstakingly built their rare coin collections over the last 30-40 years and now want to enjoy the fruits of this work. We understand the urge to pass such a collection on to heirs, but unless these heirs share your level of passion and numismatic knowledge, too often they will dispose of the collection haphazardly or even spend the coins outright.
Alternatively, if you have received a collection from a parent or relative and it’s time to part with it, please get one or more price estimate and then let Numismax evaluate the collection and make you an offer.
We will fly anywhere in the Continental United States to purchase rarities.

Coin values are primarily based on rarity (a reflection of the number originally minted), the condition of the piece and the demand for the item. “Condition” can be a little subjective but fortunately there are very detailed grading standards used by reputable organizations like the American Numismatic Association that help in this process.
Still, in spite of those standards, there often is some variability in estimating the value of a rare coin from appraiser to appraiser You can be confident that Numismax will give you the best possible offer.
Why can we make that assurance? Our expertise in grading and evaluating coins is second to none. Numismax’s buyers are in tune with the rapidly changing numismatic markets. We pay more because we know more!
Like nearly every other commodity, the value of a coin is determined by supply and demand.
The number of coins minted in a given year at a specific mint is the best indicator of supply, and production data is readily available. However, when the quality control process at a mint breaks down and defective coins get into circulation, this can create an explosive market of its own due to the very small supply of these unique pieces.
On the demand side, coin buyers want coins that are in good shape. When grading a coin’s condition, Numismax follows the guidelines of the most reputable grading organizations.
The historical context of the coin also can affect demand and its price. For example, the alloys used to make many U.S. coins during World War II were visibly different from those that were used in the preceding and subsequent years. This type of oddity typically drives demand by casual coin collectors and those who collect for historical significance.
