About us | Capitol Coin and Stamp, political memorabilia and precious metals


Capitol Coin is like a museum where everything you see is for sale!

We're one of the few places in the world that combines the history of politics with the history of money. We've got Reagan, Kennedy and Clinton memorabilia along side Double Eagles, gold pieces and uncut sheets of paper currency.

Visiting our store is a fun experience for hobbyists, tourists and serious collectors alike. It's a must-see for political, history and coin fans of all types.

But we're also a serious business, dealing in coins, precious metals, autographs and political memorabilia. With more than 50 years of serving the public, Capitol Coin is a safe, reputable venue to buy or sell gold, silver or platinum along with valuable coins, paper money and political items of interest.

We handle the careful appraisal, sale or consignment of individual items as well as estates or collections.

Our web site features just a fraction of what we have to offer in the store, but we're gradually adding to our online inventory so stop back often! You can submit questions for an expert answer from Nelson, buy items online or submit information about items you'd like to sell via our web site. And whether you visit our store online or in person, you'll always get reliable, honest and friendly service.

Note: We no longer buy or deal in stamps.
