Buy & Sell

We Buy


One of the most enjoyable aspects of the family business for our staff is that every day brings the promise of a new discovery. Our staff encourages you to bring in your unwanted items no matter how insignificant they might seem. We will give you a fair and honest assessment as well as a competitive rate.


Diamond Ring

Whether your unwanted jewelry is in perfect condition, bent, kinked, or smashed, please bring them in for a free appraisal. While it’s easy to imagine the value of a diamond, you might be surprised by the value you can receive from other rings, necklaces, bracelets, pins, brooches, charms, wedding bands, class and cluster rings, earrings, or pocket watches. The store gallery is filled with treasures that our staff have purchased over the years, but they are interested in much more!

Coins & Currency


Our interest in coin collecting dates back to childhood. Now our childhood hobby is our business. Kenneth G. Rare Coins is interested in buying paper money, dollar coins, and proof and mint sets. Our staff will offer a competitive rate and years of trusted experience when you bring in your coins.

Precious Metals


You might be surprised to discover how many objects contain precious metals, and Kenneth G. Rare Coins is interested in buying nearly anything involving precious metals, such as gold, scrap gold and dental gold, silver, sterling silver, and platinum. Precious metals are used in a variety of ways. Gold is found in computers, telephones, televisions, and other electrical equipment, for example, because it’s a highly conductive electrical material that is also resistant to corrosion and tarnish. Silver, too, is a good conductor of heat and electricity. It can be found in money, jewelry, photography, mirrors, batteries, silverware, medical equipment, and wires, for example. Platinum, one of the rarest and most valuable metals, is used in surgical instruments, chemical equipment, and catalytic converters. Its extreme bendability makes it a good material for creating delicate jewelry and fine wires. Precious metals are also found in flatware, picture frames, and more.



If you are looking for an appraisal of an estate, or are interested in selling estate jewelry and currency, then Kenneth G. Rare Coins is your company. Please feel free to call the store to schedule an appointment.

We specialize in wholesale bulk purchases. We will also purchase items from stores that are going out of business, and bulk gold.

Some of the items we are interested in purchasing include jewelry, currency, flatware, and collections. our staff have years of experience and know what they are looking for. They would be happy to schedule an appointment with you to appraise your estate items.

Estate sales provide the us with the exciting opportunity to use our skills and expertise in finding unique items. It’s not uncommon to find objects of rare beauty at estate sales. Our staff purchase these items and give them the opportunity for a new life by showcasing them at our Mishawaka location.

The gold market has been stable for the past 200 years,
but gold’s rich history far predates this current trend, and plays a role in some 
investment opportunities.

We can date gold’s use as a currency back to the 6th century. It’s left its mark on societies throughout history as a rare and precious metal that is difficult to destroy and impossible to manufacture. It's easy to work with, beautiful to look at, and it endures as a solid investment for a number of reasons.

Gold has a long-term store of value, because it’s capable of performing the same functions that money does. It’s recognized all over the world as a form of payment. It’s easily transported and divided, and its worth is measured by weight.

Unlike money, the value of gold is not directly affected by economic policies. Governments can’t decline or freeze gold. It’s not dependent on a company or a government’s ability to repay it. It's known as an asset of last resort because it's stable and reliable.


It is also an extremely liquid investment. Trading centers in New York, London, Zurich, Tokyo and Hong Kong allow us to trade gold at any time. Like stocks, bonds, mutual funds, commodity futures, and options, gold’s price performance is documented world-wide in major newspapers, daily.


Investing in gold is a good way to diversify and reduce the risk of an investment portfolio. Its reliability makes it stand out among other investments in a portfolio that is subject to fluctuations in value. The factors that determine gold’s value include supply and demand, the value of the U.S. dollar, and the state of inflation and interest rates.


These factors are different from – and in opposition to – the factors that most other financial assets are subject to. This gives gold assets the ability to move independently from the other investments.


Investing in gold is always a good idea. Really, the only debate is how to invest. Bullion, which is gold in the form of a bar or ingot, e.g., can be purchased through precious metal dealers, like Kenneth G. Rare Coins, or at brokerage firms and banks throughout the United States.


Investing in gold bars is one of the most cost-effective ways to invest. Gold futures contracts, mining stocks, and gold options are also good ways to invest that come with the additional bonus of not needing much storage space.

Coin collecting is one of our favorite ways of investing at Kenneth G. Rare Coins. Gold bullion coins are popular with many investors because they combine both capital value and artistry. They make beautiful and interesting gifts.


Numismatic coins are a special variety of coins that are valued beyond their weight in gold. The rareness of the coin, the number of originals minted, and the condition are all taken into account when appraising these beautiful and historical coins that can bring a far higher price than other gold pieces.
