How to Sell Rare Coins

Sell your Rare Coins back to us anytime! That's the Blanchard Buyback Guarantee.

Because each coin we sell has to first meet our very high and exacting quality standards, we are always happy to buy it back if you should ever choose to liquidate. What’s more, we make it just as easy to sell your coins to us as it was to buy them.

Throughout the buyback process, an Account Executive will provide you with instruction and walk you through each of the following steps:

  1. Call us at 1-800-880-4653 to receive a quote.
  2. We’ll give you detailed instructions via USPS registered insured mail on how to securely ship the rare coin(s) to our vault.
  3. The buyback price will be locked in once you call your Account Executive with the shipment registration number from the post office.
  4. When we’ve received the item(s) we then process them carefully: according to a strict protocol, we unpack, catalog the items, weigh them on a scale, check that all certification/registration numbers match, and confirm coin quality and value.
  5. We’ll notify you when your check is in the mail.

Remember that any reputable dealer, including Blanchard and Company, will need to physically examine rare coins before making any firm purchase offer.

Tips on liquidating coins not purchased from Blanchard.

Investment Grade Gold (IGG) and Rare Coins:

Blanchard and Company deals only in coins that have been graded, certified and "slabbed" (inserted in plastic cases) by the nation's top independent coin valuation services, PCGS and NGC. You can request that we consider quoting your certified, graded coins by calling us at 1-800-880-4653. Note that valuing rare coins requires more time than placing a value on bullion.

Loose/Ungraded Coins:

Blanchard and Company does not purchase loose, ungraded coins. If your coin is loose (not encased in a plastic slab) and/or ungraded, your first step is to determine if it is worth having professionally graded. See if your coin’s type is featured on the sites of America's leading independent coin grading services: Professional Coin Grading Service and Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. If it is, then consider having them grade your coin, as most reputable, high-end rare coin brokers only acquire certified and graded coins.

If you don't see your coin's type on the grading sites, contact one or more reputable coin dealers in your area. A local dealer can usually help identify the coin, give an early indication of whether grading is an option, and possibly offer you an acceptable price, especially if you have an average or below-average quality coin.
