Selling To Us

At Southern Coins & Precious Metals, we welcome individuals who want to sell gold, silver, platinum, palladium, coins and currency. Items can either be mailed to us or brought to our office in Metairie, Louisiana If you have coins, currency, U.S. or foreign, or any items made of gold or silver, remember that SCPM is here to give you an evaluation as to the value of your items.

Free Appraisal Services in-office or via mail

We always welcome and encourage clients visiting our store for evaluations. Coin condition is an essential factor in accurately determining the true value of your coin. Numismatists constantly gyrate coins on inspection to catch light reflections on their surface to determine true value and grade. Long-time, non-local customers who have developed trust in our services do transport coins via secure carriers like FedEx or USPS Registered Mail–insured for loss–for evaluations. This method is available if you choose but make arrangements with one of our numismatists first so tracking can be monitored on both ends. Finally, emailed or texted photos of coins are marginally useful at best to determine if you do have something worth an in-person look.
