Selling Your Coins
Numismatically Yours regularly purchases coin collections ranging from a handful of coins to entire estates. No collection is too small or too large for us to manage. We buy coin collections both locally in the Finger Lakes region and nationally. Our service area includes the major cities of Ithaca, Syracuse, Elmira, Cortland, Corning, Binghamton, Horseheads, Watkins Glen, Skaneateles, Auburn, and surrounding areas. We will travel to you to either purchase or appraise your collection. If you live in the Finger Lakes region, let us make you an offer before you sell your collection. You might be pleasantly surprised. If you have a collection which you would like to sell, please either shoot us a phone call or fill out the form below. One of our expert staff will contact you to discuss further details. All conversations remain strictly confidential.
We also offer a consignment option. After evaluating potential consignment pieces, together, we will come up with a fair market value that you are comfortable with. We will advertise your coins on our website, eBay, and social media to try to sell them as quickly as possible. Our typical commission rate is about 10%, however, we will work on lower commission rates for higher value coins. Some individuals consider auctioning their coin collections. We advocate consignment as a better option for a few simple reasons:
- You control the sale price of your coins
- Our typical commission rate of about 10% is much lower than the auction industry standard of about 30% (ask the auction company about their buyer’s premium)
- Your receive expert advice from seasoned numismatists, operating in the industry on a daily basis
- We specialize in numismatic photography. In a marketplace which is continually shifting towards internet sales, expert photography is critical to maximizing sale price
