Frequently Asked Questions

LOCATION, HOURS & SERVICES
 

Question: Are you an actual brick and mortar store or just an online business?

Answer: Beverly Hills Rare Coins is located in the heart of the Beverly Hills shopping district at 427 N. Camden Dr. Suite F, Beverly Hills, CA 90210.

Question: Are your appraisals completely free, with no obligation?

Answer: Yes. We will tell you all we can about your items and give you a value. You are under no obligation to sell to us. All successful businesses are built on relationships and we feel that sharing our knowledge with you free of charge is the best way to start that relationship.

Question: Are you open on the weekends?

Answer: No, our hours are Monday-Friday 10am-6pm.

QuestionDo you pay cash?

Answer: We are located directly next door to our bank so cash is not a problem.

QuestionDo you have parking?

Answer: There is a Beverly Hills parking garage directly across the street with 1 hour free parking.

QuestionWill you come to my home or my bank to give me an appraisal on my items?

Answer: In short, yes. Because we are a small, family run business our time is limited. While we would like to accommodate everyone, it sometimes is just not feasible to do so. Give us a call and we will do our best to help you.

QuestionDo you take items on consignment or give loans?

Answer: No, we buy and sell only. We are not licensed to give loans.

COINS
 

QuestionShould I polish or clean my coins before I bring them in?

Answer: NO. We advise NO CLEANING of any item in all of the fields in which we specialize. You will never receive less for your item because it is dirty, but you may destroy thousands of dollars in value if you clean it. Originality is key in the field of Numismatics.

QuestionWhat is Bullion?

Answer: Bullion is a general term used to describe coins, bars or ingots made of precious metal, whose value is based on the current value of that metal. Intended primarily as investment products, these items rarely have a collectible value that exceeds their intrinsic metal value. Examples of popular bullion products are: American Gold Eagle, Canadian Gold Maple Leaf, South African Krugerrand, and Johnson Matthey Silver Bars.

QuestionWhat is a Numismatic coin?

Answer: Numismatic coins are coins whose value is based on their “collectible” or “rare coin” value. As opposed to Bullion coins, whose value is closely tied to their metal content, Numismatic coins are often worth many times more than their metal value. Most Numismatic coins were used as legal tender at one point in time.

QuestionWhat is a Certified Coin?

Answer: A certified coin has been professionally graded by a third-party grading company, and sonically sealed with an identifying label in a clear hard plastic holder. The label contains all of the information about the coin, including the condition or “grade”. There are many grading companies but only two have maintained the highest standards for consistently grading numismatic coins: NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation) and PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service). As premiere rare coin dealers in Los Angeles we can assist you in buying, selling, appraising and grading all numismatic coins.
