DM Rare Coins

Our 21st 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 19th 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 know it's hard to find just the right coin. We want to ensure your complete satisfaction with every purchase, 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 is in a unique position to apply his knowledge of conservation, presentation, and education to the field of Numismatics. DM Rare Coins does more than buy and sell rare coins: we also conduct numismatic research; publish our findings in articles, blogs, and books; and perform consultations for local museums artifact collections. We also offer an email newsletter to keep you abreast of new coins, information, and deals.

In 2014, DM Rare Coins launched a Coin Photography Service, which actually accepts both coins and other small artifacts. We have received many compliments on our true to life images, and offering this service has been a natural extension of our business.

In the coin field, specifically: our company's numismatic specialties include Bust halves by Overton, Cherrypicker's Guide and related die varieties, Betts Medals and other Early American or 18th Century European issues, Prooflike coins, and Premium Quality United States coins. Our 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 from the wide range of quality on today's market, making it easier for you to find great coins!

We hope you enjoy visiting our website. It is intended as an educational experience, not just a list of widgets for sale. Browse our navigation tabs for more information on our business!
