There’s no question that selling coins can be a great way to get some quick money, but it is important to know what you are getting into before you start. Keep reading to get the facts, and then contact GNJ Pawn Big at (661) 224-1999 or stop by our pawn shop to see what we can offer you for your coins.
Research Your Coins Before You Bring Them In
Can you walk into a pawn shop with no idea of the value of your coins and sell them? Yes – you can count on pawnshop dealers to know the basics, at least, about how to value coins. However, the more you know about them, the more easily you can ensure you are getting a fair price. If you know what type of coins they are, where they were originally minted, and how much they weigh, you will have the basic info needed to value them correctly.
Bring in Any Documentation You Have
The more documentation you have about the coins you have, the more accurate your payment is likely to be. If you are dealing with precious metal coins, then they likely came with some type of documentation when you got them. If you do have some paperwork that documents their authenticity, make sure you bring it. This makes the process much faster and easier.
Sell Your Coins at Pawn Shop
Are there other places you can sell your coins? Maybe, but pawn shops are the best option. In fact, GNJ Pawn Big is the best option. We are an experienced, reputable pawnshop with many years in this community. We use market value to value the coins you bring in and our offer will be based on it.
Remember that you are not going to get the full market value. You might be able to get that if you sell directly to the end buyer, but it can take months, a lot of time, a lot of energy, and getting into dangerous situations for that to be a reality. When you come to us, we can give you an instant quote and you can walk out with cash.
The Material Could Be Worth Money Even if the Coin is Not
If you do your research and find that the coin you have is not worth anything as a collectible, this does not mean that it has no value. If it is made from precious metal, you could sell it for the metal. Give GNJ Pawn Big a call at (661) 224-1999 to tell us more about your coin and we can help you determine your best options.
