A Little About the Owner

I have been a coin collector since 1970. I retired from the US Army in 1986 and soon after I started my 1st coin shop on South Tacoma Way.  I Finished my BSN Degree from PLU's School of Nursing in the 1990's and am still Licensed as a Registered Nurse in the State of Washington. This allows me to give back to those in need and enables me to make a difference. And making a difference is what I want to do in my new business venture. I pray you'll play a part in this with me as you come down to the Freighthouse Square and visit Tacoma's newest Coin Shop. Whether you're looking for that coin from the 1790's, Rare Date Indians, 3 Legged- Buffalo's, Proof Buffalo's, or want to pick from over 1,000 Unc. Morgan Dollars (or over 100 Carson City Dollars.to include all dates and GSA's) to finish your set; if you have a need to complete that Type Set in BU, Proof or in Gold, or you just want to finish your penny set and want to pick from a selection of BU 1909-S-VDB's or 1914-D's...this is the place to come visit. And while we are putting out new inventory on a daily basis, we most likely have the largest, most complete, high end coin inventory out for display in this area. And because most pieces are very scarce and hard to find we urge our fellow coin collectors to be speedy in their visit to us because many of these pieces are sure to sell fast and may not come back on the market for many more decades.

Please contact us with any questions about our products or to request information on what we will pay for your items. Please keep into account that buying coins and jewelry is not easily priced accurately without visuals and weighing.
