Frequently asked questions about selling collectible coins.

Is now a good time to sell old coins?

Yes, there is an unprecedented demand for gold and silver coins and bullion, both in terms of melt value and collectability. Contact us to find out how!

Where can I find buyers for coins?

The fact that you are here is a good start! Back to the past has a wide network of buyers looking for quality coins. Contact us to find out how!

What percentage do coin dealers take?

The commission rate for handling coins varies depending on many different issues, such as total value of the collection, condition of the coins, collectability value or key dates, and whether or not the coins have been graded. There is much to take into consideration when it comes to this question, so contact us for more information.

How do I sell my coin collection?

The fact that you are here is a great start! Any dealer will be interested in whether or not you have a list or photographs, or any other way to describe what is in your coin collection. It all starts with a free consultation, so contact us when you are ready!

How can I sell my gold coins without paying taxes?

Although we are not tax advisors, we are aware of the ability to trade gold, and silver, and not pay the tax when using a self-directed Roth IRA account. Additionally, you can postpone taxes with a 1031 IRS exchange. We recommend contacting a tax advisor for more information on these methods.

Who is the most reputable coin dealer?

There are several nationally recognized coin dealers, but you should always investigate their policies, and look for reviews. This will give you a good idea of who can be trusted. Through this method, you will find that Back to the Past Collectibles is a great option!

How do I sell ungraded coins?

Coins can still be great for selling ungraded, but in many cases for key dates or high-grade coins, it is best to go through the process of getting them slabbed and numerically graded. Back to the Past Collectibles can guide you through the process of which coins will be okay to sell loose and which coins should go through the process of grading.

What to do before selling coins?

It is best to have a list of what coins are in the collection and as many photos as possible, as any dealer in the collection will ask for this. Contact Back to the Past Collectibles for next steps!

Do I have to pay taxes on the coins I sell?

Although we are not tax advisors, in general, there will be tax laws that will apply to any sale of coins. However, there are ways to mitigate or manage the tax process for the best outcome, like a self-directed Roth IRA or 1031 IRS exchange. We recommend contacting a tax advisor for more information.

How much does it cost to get coins appraised?

It depends on what you mean by the term “appraised.” Back to the Past Collectibles offers an over-the-counter free consultation, which will help to get a ballpark value. However, if a more in-depth line by line appraisal is required (for insurance purposes, as an example), we will provide an hourly quote for the service. Additionally, part of coin appraisal can be getting coins graded, which is a separate process that comes with its own costs.

Where can I sell my silver bar?

Watch the market for the best price before selling. Avoid cleaning the silver to maintain its value, and contact a reputable dealer like Back to the Past Collectibles for next steps.

Is silver hard to sell?

Actually, silver is very easy to sell. Both silver and gold are in high demand. Contact Back to the Past Collectibles for consultation about your collection!

Do silver buyers pay spot?

Silver dealers will normally pay a number that is under spot, because they are looking to resell.
