How Do I Sell My Coins To You?

IPM will buy coins for the buyback price. The buyback price is defined as the price that IPM might immediately realize by selling the coin to the wholesale or retail markets, plus applicable shipping costs.

Here is how the process works:

  1. Send photos of your coins to with the subject “Request to Sell or Value Coins”, along with as much information as you know about the coin(s). Be sure to include your contact information.  Indicate how many of each coin(s) you want to sell, as well as if you would like to sell, trade, or just value the coins. 
  1. Once we receive your information, we will email you back the value of your coin(s). This is called the “Bid in Principle and gives you a reasonable idea of how much your coin(s) will sell for.  If you agree with the values, and you would like to proceed to trade or sell your coins, it’s time to ship your coins to us.   We will give you further instructions for the safe delivery of your coins, fully insured.
  1. Once we receive your coin(s), we will give you the current value for that day, and you will have an opportunity to lock in your final bid. This will be the amount IPM pays you, minus any shipping costs or expenses incurred by IPM.   We will call you with this information at the number you provide.

How Do I Get Paid and How Long Does It Take?

Once you’ve locked in your final bid price, you will receive your check within twenty-one (21) business days. 

Does It Cost Anything to Sell My Coins?

IPM will sell your coins at the price we might realize on the wholesale market.  Expenses to sell your coins to us would be your cost to ship the coins to us.  There is no cost for us to provide a bid or to buy your coins from you.  We will provide an initial bid (the bid in principle) based on your photos, and then when we receive the coins, we will offer you a final bid.

What Happens If My Coins Are Lost or Damaged On the Way To You?

If you decide to sell your gold, silver, platinum or palladium coins after receiving your final bid, you will ship your coins fully insured using one of the major carriers.  We accept UPS, FedEX, or registered mail via the USPS.  In the event your coins are lost or stolen, the carrier insurance will pay your claim to you directly.  Ask your representative for more detailed information once you’re ready to sell or trade.

What Happens if I Ship My Coins To You and Then Change My Mind?

If you ship your coins to us after getting the bid in principle, but then change your mind before we have liquidated your coins, we will ship your coins back to you at your expense via fully insured major carrier (UPS, FedEX, Registered Mail via USPS).  If we have already liquidated, then we will send you your check for the coins.

What Happens if the Bids or Spot Price Change Between When I Ship My Coins To You and You Receive Them?

If the bid on your coins changes after you ship your coins to us, you will realize the higher bid when we give you the Final Bid to lock in your price.  Likewise, if the bids go down during this period, we will let you know when we give you the final bids after receiving your coins.  You will have the option to accept the final bid and lock in, or choose for us to send your coins back to you, fully insured.

I saw on another site that my (penny, quarter, nickel, continental coin, Susan B. Anthony $1, Sacagawea dollar) is worth a lot of money.  I have one, and I want to know if it’s real and how much it’s worth?

There are many sites that show common coins where there was a single example of an error, or rare story.  Over the years, many fakes and replicas have been made.  The chances of you having one of these coins is almost always nearly zero. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide values for these types of coins.  We recommend finding a local coin shop, or pawn shop, to authenticate and value your coin(s).
