I did a Yelp! search for local gold buyers and ended up at American Rare Coin. I walked in on a Monday, without an appointment, and sat down with someone right away; he carefully tested everything, talked me through the process, and gave me the most up-to-date prices. I left 15 minutes later with a check in hand, and feeling great about having gone to American Rare Coin. Definitely, definitely choose this place.
