How to Increase the Value of Your Coins
American Federal has recently become an authorized CAC (Certified Acceptance Corporation) dealer. We are one of two dealers in the state of Arizona and the only authorized dealer in the Metro Phoenix area.
If you own any numismatic coins you know that the price you can get for your coins is based, not only on the grade given by PCGS or NGC, but also the overall look of the coin. This is why 2 coins of the same grade can bring such different prices. The rare coin market has been lack luster for 25 years except for ultra-rare and truly historically significant coins.
Today’s buyers want something special and CAC fills that need.
CAC holds coins to a higher standard and verifies previously graded coins that are considered the best for the grade. So, when a coin receives a CAC sticker, it is considered to be the high end of coins within the grade.
Here is just one example: A $10 Indian in PCGS or NGC MS-65 brings $2,400 – $2,600 in the dealer market. However, if that same coin is CAC verified it can bring $3,500 – $4,100. The difference can be substantial. In recent auctions a 1911-D $2 ½ Indian graded PCGS MS-63 sold for $10,869 while a CAC verified coin brought $14,100.
Rare coins can go for as much as 200% more with the CAC verification.
Even coins like the $20 St. Gaudens in MS-65 or MS-66 bring more money once they are CAC verified. If you own numismatic coins, this is the one service we can offer you to increase the value of your coins, whether you want to sell right now or not. Let me be clear. Not every coin you own will receive the CAC verification. They only verify coins that are the best within the grade. Coins that just barely make their grade, will not be verified. However, even if a few choice coins you own receive the CAC verification it can mean thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars. If you own any rare coins, especially if you have truly rare or unusual coins, it could really be worthwhile to talk to us.
You can call 1-800-221-7694 for more information or to talk about your specific coins. You can also fax 480-553-5290 or EMAIL us your list of coins.
This is truly one service that I can offer you that can make a huge financial difference in your portfolio. I don’t make a penny getting your coins verified, but I want to do everything possible to help you maximize your value whether you are ready to sell or not. CAC charges only $25 a coin, for most coins, but can make a huge difference when you want to sell.
