You’ve seen the claims on TV, in the local newspapers, and heard them on the radio: “CHOOSE US. We pay the HIGHEST PRICES!”
This is a claim anyone can make.
We measure our success differently.
Repeat Business – On average, 70% of our customers come back for a second, third or even forth trip to our shop. To us, this suggests that we have met and exceeded our customers’ expectations.
Referral Business – Unlike many companies you may be accustomed to doing business with, The Frederick Coin Exchange has a rather small advertising budget. We strive to pay some of the most competitive rates in the area, which means lower margins for us. However, because of our strong prices, we find most of our customers happily refer their friends and family to us.
Reputation – We are in a unique business where trust and reputation matter more than fancy offices and fanfare. In today’s age of technology, creating this trust is even more important and in many ways more difficult. In years past, customers had no way of knowing if they were dealing with people that were honest and trustworthy, unless they knew someone else who had dealt with them. Today, all you have to do is simply ‘Google’ someone to read their reviews. This is something we tell all of our customers to do before they come see us. Google ‘The Frederick Coin Exchange’ and see what others have to say about us! Or click here directly.
Affiliations – Knowledge is power in our business. Being connected to organizations and businesses around the country allow us to pay you more. We are members of the Certified Coin Exchange, a network of the nation’s top 300 coin dealers. This allows us to buy anything at competitive rates, regardless of value or quantity.

Services We Offer
Purchasing – While we are primarily a dealer of rare coins, we will also purchase your unwanted jewelry, as well as your gold, platinum or silver bullion. We will be happy to travel to you if your collection proves to be valuable enough. No appointments are necessary when you come to visit our shop. Just bring your items into Frederick Coin Exchange during normal business hours and we’ll be able to help you out.
Verbal Appraisals – Our in-house VERBAL appraisals are free of charge. The appraisal process is simple. Once you bring your coins to us, we will sit with you and tell you the current market value of the items you bring us. If you decide to sell to us, then we will pay you the appraised price. If you choose to keep your coins, then you will leave knowing their exact value.
No appointments are necessary for verbal appraisals.
Written Appraisals – If you need an appraisal typed on our letterhead (usually for estate purposes or to be presented in court), the charge is $75 per hour in store, and $150 per hour out of store with a minimum charge of an hour. The appraisal process is simple: Once you bring your coins to us we will sit with you and itemize the value of your collection. If you decide to sell to us then we will pay you the appraised price. If you choose to keep your coins, you will leave knowing exactly what your items are worth. Please note we usually only do appraisals AFTER 2:00 Monday-Thursday (under some circumstances we can do other times). You MUST call to make an appointment for written appraisals. ***Please NOTE: Due to the volume of business we are currently seeing. We are only taking a small number of OUT of store appraisals.***
Submission services – Since we are members of all major grading services, including the newly formed CAC service, we can submit your coins for grading. We can also advise you whether we feel your coin is an appropriate fit for submission. You will only be charged our cost plus additional shipping charges.
