Sell (Coins)

So, what sort of coins can you sell? That’s one of the common questions that people ask. Here are a few things you may consider bringing over to A to Z Pawns:

  • Rare coins
  • Coins in good condition
  • Coins made from precious metals
  • Silver coins
  • Gold coins
  • Platinum coins
  • Collectible coins

Remember that pawnshops have a lot of business with regard to precious metals. That is primarily the reason why you can still bring your coins over to them over for sale even if they aren’t highly collectible.

If you’re unsure, just bring your coins to the A to Z Pawns store to get your coins appraised. Even if the coin isn’t in good condition it can still be sold or traded as long as they are made of either gold or silver (or any precious metal to exact).

If you want to make sure that you’re getting fair value for your coins, you should look them up yourself first. That is a must in case you think that your coins are highly collectible. Needless to say, you need to do your research.

If you have any documentation regarding your coin then bring that with you as well. Pawn brokers will want to see that too and it will help identify the coins in your possession.

However, if you don’t have any documentation or if you didn’t have your coins graded, you can still bring them over to the shop. There will usually be a member of the staff or maybe a pawn broker who is also a trader. They can determine the value of the coins for you.

There will usually be someone in the pawnshop that will be familiar with different coins. Nevertheless, our shop has tools and references that can be used to ascertain the actual value of most coins in your possession.


A to Z Pawns also trade in rare and collectible coins. The more collectible the coins are the more money you will get from them. The coins will be assessed as to their metal value – usually the value of gold or silver that is in the coins, and their collectible value.

Coins that are in good condition may be highly prized. However, if the coin is highly collectible or graded, then you can trade them at a better rate other than what the metal value is – that is even if the coin is in only fair shape.


A to Z Pawns loans on many different coins, for example Gold coins, Sivler coins, Platinum coins, Coin Sets, old coins and even Palladium coins.

The most common coins that come in and out of any pawnshop is a silver coin. That means half dollars, quarters, and dimes are the most common loan.

If the half dollars, quarters, and dimes were minted in 1964 or earlier, then you have a good chance at being able to secure a loan using them. The big reason behind this is the fact that the coins that were minted after 1964 contained less or no silver in them.

Note that shops will usually have a set rate for most coins. Never polish or clean your coins before taking them to the shop. That may reduce the value of the coins. Coins in their original condition are usually preferred – and you can fetch a better price for them that way.
