Buy & Sell Rare Coins At A&D Coin

Looking For a Rare Coin Dealer?

Our local coin shop will pay you cash on the spot for any and all rare US coins. Whether you have a key date coin, semi-key date coins, a rare coin collection or you inherited some rare coins.

We’ll help you assess what you have, let you know the value, type and condition of your old US coins and then, make you a fair offer to purchase them. No matter the condition; high grade, low grade, cleaned, or details we buy them all. Call us at: 916-487-5852

In numismatics, technically “rare” means very few examples are known (e.g. no more than a population of 75 of a certain coin would earn that designation according to the Sheldon Rarity Scale).

Take the 1916 D Mercury Dime for example. Tho there were 264, 000 minted (very low compared to all other years the Mercury Dime was minted, making it a key date coin) when you consider that in MS 63 condition; there are only 30 of these between both PCGS & NGC making this coin in “that” condition, a rare coin.

And though there are many old US coins and are definitely harder to come by (in any condition); the term “rare” is really only used to refer to the super low population know of a particular coin.
