As some of our
clients know, we have been working for quite some
time to develop a coin information folio with
high resolution images and a full description
along with historical data for customers to have
as an in-depth source of information about their
coins. The folios are full color, 8 ½ X
11 inches, and are fully laminated. They are beautiful
and highly informative, and we've named them the
"Photo-Specimen" of your rare coin.
have had many inquiries as to when we will be
offering this service to the public and that is
being considered. For now, it will be an exclusive
service for clients of US Rare Coin Investments.
We do not believe that there is anyone in the
business that offers anything like it, and very
soon we will offer the Photo-Specimen service
to the public.
provides historical content specific to the time
your coin was in circulation and touches on people,
places and events. The Photo-Specimen also provides
relevant numismatic and/or population information.
It provides enlarged high resolution images of
the obverse and reverse of your coin, images of
the specimen’s highlights as well as images
of the coin encapsulation so there is no doubt
that the imaged coin matches the description and
numerical grade as assigned by the grading service*.

For a limited time,
every rare coin**
purchased from US Rare Coin Investments by non-dealers,
with the exception of generic common dates, will
receive a free VIP Photo-Specimen, a $50 value
free of charge.
These beautiful Photo-Specimens
are informative and attractive. You will feel
much safer keeping the actual coins in the bank’s
safe deposit box while still being able to enjoy
viewing your coins anytime. You will also have
the history and other pertinent information all
in the same place. Having a Photo-Specimen is
also great for your records, for insurance purposes,
and for your loved ones who sometimes look at
us with question as we compile our collections
and coin portfolios. Here is something tangible
they can feel and read that will give them a better
understanding about the positive aspects of these
numismatic footprints of history. We can also
customize the Photo-Specimen by adding the name
of your collection, trust, or family name or person
you are presenting the coin to.
Do you have coins
that you purchased elsewhere and would like to
have this service for those too? We can help.
The cost for Photo-Specimens for US coins is $50.00
and for World coins it is $100 plus $5.99 for
priority mailing. Just email us the submission
form and we’ll provide you with shipping
instructions and an invoice. But for coins purchased
from us the new service is free with our compliments!
