About us

About us…

Hyatt Coins has been serving the greater Charlotte market since 1959. In the same location since 1964, Hyatt Coins offers you the best service in the industry, such as private appraisal rooms, multiple expert numismatists on staff every day, more than 18 showcases filled with collectible coins, and the most competitive buying prices around. Plus, there’s plenty of parking!

Did you know that Hyatt Coins is also the area’s largest buyer and seller of bullion, including gold, silver, platinum, coins, bars, flatware, and scrap jewelry?

Some coins are more valuable due to their collector value, while others are dependent on their precious metal value. Rest assured that Hyatt Coins pays the highest prices for your coins, taking both of these values into full consideration.

Don’t take a risk with your bullion or rare coin investments; come see us first.

 

We are proud members of the ANA, NCNA, PCGS, NGC, CAC, and PMG numismatic and paper money associations, and we’re an Accredited Business with the Better Business Bureau.

We are also a proud member of ICTA (International Council for Tangible Assets), dedicated to helping you with tangible assets such as gold and silver bullion and investment grade coins.

Thanks to nearly a year of effort by Hyatt Coins president Mitch Hyatt, North Carolina residents no longer have to pay sales tax on collectible coins, currency, and bullion. We can thank many of our state congressmen and senators, as well as the governor for signing off on the bill to make this possible.
