Rare and proof coin collections
Rare coins represent a smart two-way play for precious metals collectors. First, their gold and silver content is at an all-time high. Secondly, many of them are extremely rare in top condition, and selling for prices well below their highs of last decade.
At South Bay Gold, we have recently expanded our rare coin department in response to public demand. This means WE NEED YOUR coins and will pay well for them! Plus we have a nice selection of certified coins on display at both stores. We encourage you to come in and visit.
If you like, call or email us a list of your items or your want list and we'll get right back to you with information you need to make an informed decision, since every rare coin is unique.

Here's one great reason: Save over 30%! That's compared to the difference in the price of silver since May to October 2011. When silver hit its peak of $48, US silver dollars were selling for $46 each. Today, you can pick up these same silver dollars for around $37 in good condition!
