Since August 2008, we have been a full service coin shop and a place
to convert unwanted gold and silver jewelry, sterling flatware,
pocket watches, coins, currency, and other collectibles to cash.
We take pride in that we are not a pawn shop and treat our
customers fairly, discretely, and professionally. Since we've
been open, we've had many clients from all professions visit
us. Those people have recommended their friends and family to
come to us when they need to sell something.
One of the owners, Don, travels from Rhode Island and is very
knowledgeable on coins and currency. When not at the shop, he
is busy writing computer software for town clerks in Rhode Island.
Why did we pick Portland to open a store? Opening a store
in Rhode Island was not an option, since their precious metal laws
requires the dealer to hold the item(s) for 14 days. Because
the market can change drastically in that period, it forces the
dealer to pay very low to the customer.
We didn't want to be a part of that.
We looked for an area in CT that had a lot of people and didn't
have competition. After research, Middletown/Portland area
turned out to be a good area. And as it turns out, Portland
and the surrounding towns is
an excellent area and the people are wonderful. We get a lot
of people from East Hampton, Cromwell, Durham, and Glastonbury.
