DM Rare Coins

Our 18th Year Online!

Based in the rolling hills of the historic, Pennsylvania Laurel Highlands; near the convergence of two famous British military roads of the French and Indian War; DM Rare Coins is celebrating its 18th year of selling rare coins and historic medals online! (All items are stored in bank vaults, and we maintain no retail facilities.)

From our first posting, back in 1999, our goal has been selling beautiful coins, shipping orders quickly, providing helpful answers to your questions, and offering a no-questions-asked return policy. We want to ensure your complete satisfaction with every purchase (we know it's hard to find just the right coin), and for our passion for numismatics to show in our work.

Doug, our founder, holds a Masters degree in museum studies and artifact preservation from Duquesne University, and finds ample applications for his knowledge of conservation not only working with coins, but also when called upon to perform consultations for local museums. Additionally, our company's extensive experience submitting coins to PCGS, NGC, and CAC gives us an edge over many other dealers. We have the eyes to select truly special coins out of the wide range of quality on today's certified market, making it easier for you to find great coins!

Our specialties include Capped Bust halves by Overton, Cherrypicker's Guide and related die varieties, Betts Medals and other Early American pieces, and Premium Quality United States coins. DM Rare Coins also offers a great Coin Photography Service for collectors and dealers, and we have introduced numerous educational blog posts and articles to share fascinating information about coins, as we learn it.
