Rare Coins & Currency

Buy Rare Coins & Currency Online from APMEX

The history of old rare coins and currency is vast and important. Monetary and currency changes have taken place during major world events, including the Civil War, both World Wars and the turn of the 20th century. These rare currency items hold high numismatic value because they transcended time. Old coins and rare currency hold a special place in history, and they are a highly valued collectible item, ideal for any coin collector. APMEX carries popular rare coins:

Silver Dollars (1794-1978)

Silver Dollars were an immensely useful general circulation coin produced by the United States Mint for more than 140 years and today are one of the most popular types of U.S. coins among collectors. Bust Silver Dollars were among the first minted and were only produced for a short time. This relatively small mintage means very few of these fascinating coins survived to be included in contemporary collections. The second Silver Dollar struck by the United States Mint, the Seated Liberty Dollar, differed from its predecessor in that it remained in production for a long time — more than 30 years.

Heralded as best and most beautiful of all the Silver Dollar designs, the Morgan Silver Dollar was immediately embraced by U.S. citizens when it debuted in 1878. Production of this coin continued thorough 1904, when it was replaced by the Peace Dollar, but popularity was so high, the Morgan design was produced again for one year in 1921.

Considered one of the most famous examples of United States currency, Peace Dollars were minted from 1921 through 1935. Popular with collectors and investors alike, this series is significant because it was the last U.S. dollar coin intended for circulation struck from Silver. It was also the last series of dollar denomination coins in full-time production for more than 35 years, until the U.S Mint began production of the Eisenhower Dollar in 1971.

Pre-1933 U.S. Gold Coins

Each of these Gold coins survived the 1933 legislation from President Roosevelt that prohibited anyone from holding monetary Gold, ordering all Gold coins to be sent back to the Treasury. These surviving Gold coins are great collectible rare coins and are highly sought-after by collectors and investors all over the world because off their rarity and beauty.

These U.S. Gold coins date as far back as 1795, providing a glimpse into one of the first uses of U.S. coinage. They also come in a variety of denominations providing buyers with options that can work within their budget or their investment strategy. While denominations vary, each coin has seen an important part of history unfold whether through its design or the denomination itself. They include $1.00, $2.50, $5.00, $10 Gold coins and $20 Gold coins. These exceptionally rare coins give buyers several options and have outstanding value associated with each coin. The Gold Quarter Eagle and the Liberty Gold Double Eagle are popular choices, as are the Gold Half Eagle and the Saint-Gaudens Gold. No matter what denomination or design you seek, there is a Pre-1933 collectible Gold coin for you.

Ancient Coins

Each of these offered here comes from different time periods throughout history. It gives us an important glimpse into how important currency was and still is today. Buyers can literally own a piece of history in their hands with these rare coins. Every finish is different because minting technology was archaic and virtually non-existent. These surviving coins are considered the highest valued collectible coins there are today because they are one of the first coins on the planet used as currency or trade.
