OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A leader in the Precious Metals industry for over 15 years, APMEX has always had a small selection of collector coins, as part of their bullion-rich inventory. This year, however, APMEX made a strategic business decision to give many more old coins and currency new homes by growing their rare coin and currency inventory selections.
Currently the popular precious metals retailer boasts nearly 4,000 rare coin and currency items with more being added daily. While some items like the Morgan Silver Dollar series have a very deep selection, other items like some of the early Barber Coins are simply one of a kind. The gamut of products covers all financial levels from a few dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars. APMEX has a number of inexpensive type coins such as Large Cents on their website. But if your budget permits, they recently sold an extremely rare 1879 $4.00 Flowing Hair Gold "Stella", graded Proof-65 by PCGS, for over $200,000.00.
Having a vast selection of collector coins and currency isn't the only thing that makes APMEX's numismatic selection stand out amongst the crowd, it's the passion of their dedicated team of Numismatists. The team is led by Mike Garofalo, a well-known player in the precious metals and rare coin industries. Mike has over 36 years of coin experience with nearly 8 of those years spent at APMEX.
"APMEX has a remarkable selection of rare coins and currency to suit all tastes and budgets," said Mike Garofalo, Director of Numismatics at APMEX. "We pride ourselves on finding desirable coins and offering them at fair prices to our customers," Garofalo stated.
The APMEX team keeps their collector coins and currency selections growing by attending over 15 coin shows a year. The next show coming up is the Whitman Coin Expo in Baltimore, MD on Nov 5 – 8, 2015.
"We're excited to see what new and exciting coins and currency items we can find for our customers", said Garofalo. "Our team is always ready to get back on the road," he concluded.
