Knowledge is silver but only worth gold when applied.

In April 2012, Affordable Coin Shop, a small family-owned coin shop located in the downtown area of Inverness, FL fell on hard times. Not just one, but two of the three family members who ran the shop became seriously ill. As a result, the shop barely operated on sporadic hours and backed up online orders. At the end of 2012, the family decided to close the physical shop and operate online.

Unfortunately, continuing personal problems mounted in 2013 which resulted in a temporary halt of operations. After the death of one of their prior owners, the coin shop is now back up and running, under new management. They are offering a wider range of services. It’s been a long process and the shop is constantly improving and cleaning up the functionality of online accessibility. They are becoming more user-friendly. The site is under constant construction and has recently updated many of the service features they have to offer. Here are a few of the new changes they are implementing:

  • Gift Cards
  • High detail photos of customer's coins or jewelry for insurance purposes
  • Reduce shipping for orders under $50 (Over $50 still get free shipping in the US.)
  • Unclaimed funds search
  • 10% fee on claimed funds is negotiable
  • Per request written estimates of collector's coin collection for Insurance & Theft protection

The shop's aim is to be the place to come to when you are seeking a full service company that meets your numismatic, coin collecting, needs and is here to help you.
