The Best Way to Buy or Sell Silver Coins in Atlanta

We at Atlanta Gold and Coin Buyers take pride in not only paying industry leading rates, but also in educating our customers so that they can make well informed decisions when they buy or sell silver coins in Atlanta. The approach is slightly different when buying or selling silver coins, but we’ll do our best to provide you with some helpful steps and hints so that you can receive the best prices when transacting with Atlanta coin dealers.

When selling silver dimes, quarters, half dollars, silver dollars, or silver eagles, transparency is key. The ideal coin buyers will have their prices posted online to help to reduce the time spent on obtaining quotes. Very few coin shops post their prices online, which makes it easier to decide with whom to do business.

Why is it important to do business with a coin dealer that posts their prices online? First off, coin dealers that do so typically pay among the highest rates for your silver coins. Obviously they have nothing to hide, unlike some coin dealers that may pay less than market prices. Secondly, it reflects the coin buyers’ level of transparency. You see what you get with no questions as to what you’ll receive for your silver coins. This is important, as some coin dealers may utilize bait and switch tactics in an attempt to bring you in to their place of business; only to offer less than ideal prices.

If the coin dealer doesn’t post their buying rates online, you should be able to obtain this information with a simple phone call. If the dealership isn’t willing to provide this information over the phone, then you have your answer; you should not do business with them. Unless the coins are unique in some way, such as being key date or low mintage coins, a standard rate should apply to all of the coins.

While most silver coins that you have available for sale are likely common date coins, there are some coins that contain additional collectible or numismatic value. If you find yourself in this type of situation, it’s important that you find a coin dealer that is able to identify these coins for you and pay an appropriate amount based on the coin’s condition and mintage of the coin. The Atlanta coin dealer that you choose to do business with should be transparent with respect to the approach that they take in determining the price for these coins. On a related note, you should only consider doing business with coin dealers that are willing to provide free coin appraisals. It’s important to clarify this with the coin dealer in advance of your appointment.

Most of the emphasis in this article thus far has revolved around steps to take when you sell silver coins; however, the process isn’t all that different when you buy silver coins. First and foremost, it’s important to do business with reputable coin dealers. Conduct an online search of the coin dealer that you’re considering to confirm that they’re in good standing with the Better Business Bureau and that they have positive reviews from third party sites.

Once you’ve determined that you’re dealing with a reputable coin dealer, contact them to obtain their selling prices. They should be forthright with respect to their selling rates so that you can conduct an apples-to-apples comparison to confirm that you’re receiving the best prices when you buy silver coins. If for some reason the coin dealer with whom you’ve spoken attempts to sell the coins to you at a different price than quoted, immediately begin your search over.

It’s important to establish a relationship with your Atlanta coin dealer of choice; especially if you plan on being a regular buyer of silver coins. Not only will you benefit from preferred pricing for your loyalty, but you’ll also likely be high on the coin dealer’s list when he receives new inventory; some of which may be in high demand and difficult to obtain otherwise.

We hope that you found the above article to be helpful and welcome you to contact Atlanta Gold and Coin Buyers via e-mail at or phone at 404-236-9744.
