Our founder was the Senior Numismatist for the largest rare coin company in the world, an accomplishment few in the field of Rare Coins can boast.

Coin Appraisal in Los Angeles
When you need a coin appraisal in Los Angeles, we are the intelligent choice. There are two main factors when it comes to appraising coins, one being authentication and the other being an accurate determination of the condition or “grading”. Authentication and grading require skill and a great deal of experience. There are many methods used to create counterfeit coins and a skilled numismatist must be familiar with all of them in order to recognize the telltale traits that indicate a potential fake.
Grading is another matter all together, suffice it to say, there is no substitute for experience in this field, the “grade” or “condition” of a coin generally contributes substantially to the intrinsic value, so accurate grading is absolutely necessary for an accurate appraisal. We have decades of experience authenticating and grading rare coins for a variety of prestigious international rare coin companies. If you have a need for a professional coin appraisal in Los Angeles or any of the surrounding areas, contact us today!
