Heartland Coin Gallery
Heartland Coin Gallery buys and sells gold and silver - modern coins, rare coins and unwanted jewelry. But it is known as a haven for coin collectors and coin investors.
“Coin collecting is kind of addictive. You get a few and then you want a few more. And, hopefully, if you buy the right stuff, it will increase in value,” says Jim Laubach, owner of Heartland Coin Gallery. “The fun part is finding the coins, and the bonus is if they increase in value.”
Heartland Coin Gallery, a full-service coin shop located in the Century Manufacturing Building in Wichita, provides a comfortable and private environment to buy, sell or have coins appraised.
Experts at Heartland Coin Gallery offer appraisals, as well as expert grading and authentication of silver, copper and gold coins. “We specialize in key dates, Morgan dollars and early U.S., colonial and old silver dollars,” Laubach says.
A number of customers who inherit a coin collection choose to sell it after holding on to it for a few years, which keeps rare coins in circulation for other collectors and investors. “Gold and silver have been the standard for 5,000 years,” Laubach says. “The price of gold moves all the time. I have people who bought gold six months ago and already sold it.”
As for starting a gold collection, the U.S. government puts out an American eagle – a 1- ounce, gold piece - that sells for $20 to $60 over spot (market value), Laubach says. A Lincoln penny set makes a good starter gift for a young coin collector.
“Coin collecting can be a profitable venture over the years, especially buying gold and silver coins,” he says.
Heartland Coin Gallery is a member of ANA, Central States Numismatic Society, and Florida United Numismatists.
