Coin Appraisal for the San Francisco Bay Area Made Easy

The 3-Step Clear Appraisal Plan

Document Your Collection: Photos or Inventory Listing

We believe in making coin appraisal an inclusive and transparent experience. Our three-step process begins with actively involving you in the assessment of your coin collection.

Unlike the traditional appraisal approach, where sellers often passively place their coins on a counter and entrust a buyer to determine their value, we invite you to be an integral part of the journey. 

Document your coin collection in one of two ways – through clear and comprehensive photos or by creating an inventory listing. For expert advice on capturing high-quality coin photos, take advantage of our detailed photo guide.

Receive Appraisal and Accept Offer

Our team of Experienced Numismatists and Coin Experts in the Bay Area will meticulously assess your documented coin collection. We don't just provide you with a number; we offer a dependable appraisal that accurately reflects the genuine value of your coins. Our appraisal documentation is widely recognized and accepted by insurance companies, legal proceedings, and various other organizations and entities.

Furthermore, our commitment to the highest ethical and professional standards ensures that you receive an appraisal you can trust. We adhere to strict industry guidelines and are dedicated to maintaining the integrity of the numismatic field. Rest assured, our written appraisal is 100% free and free of pressure.

Empowering Collectors, Elevating Coin Sales

The founders of Mountain View US and Foreign Coins left prestigious roles in conventional coin companies, driven by their desire to improve how collectors can sell their coins. They observed that coin shops sometimes pay as little as 40% of market value for collections and may lack expertise in evaluating niche or foreign coins. Now, as collectors themselves, the team at Mountain View US and Foreign Coins is dedicated to providing a simple and transparent appraisal experience for everyone.

Our goal is to ensure that you receive the highest value for your valuable coin collections. Mountain View US and Foreign Coins is an authorized member of well-regarded rare coin collecting organizations, highlighting our commitment to trust and credibility in our services.

Our Happy Clients

"See What Our Satisfied Customers Have to Say About Our Coin Appraisal Services."

Amy H. South San Francisco, CA

We found a large number of coins as we cleaned out the belongings of elderly parents. We decided to sell them - we had two bankers boxes of 'collection' coins and really had no idea how to go about this. David worked with us. We helped the process a lot by having printed lists of everything we were selling which allows them to do the appraisal in advance. Appraisal seemed fair so next step was David came to our house where he verified the coins and paid us in cash. Entire transaction was super smooth. Would recommend this service to anyone.

I sold today my modest coin and bill collection to David at Mountain View US and Foreign Coins. He was very effective reviewing the really random set of foreign money and I feel that I got an honest appraisal and a fair deal. I can highly recommend this business!
