The responsibility of determining what is merely sentimental and what is valuable is often overwhelming for most estate executors, so it’s not strange at all if you’re feeling that way. After all, evaluating and then liquidating everything can be a daunting task. Often enough, you might come across a coin collection during your evaluation, and liquidating an estate coin collection only adds to the already significant pressure. That’s why Colonial Acres is here to help.
In addition to performing in-house appraisals, Colonial Acres also has a chief appraiser on-site, whose professional focus is on larger collections and, specifically, estate sales. Therefore, if you’re in need of an appraisal of a larger coin collection you’ve stumbled upon while performing the duties of an executor of an estate, rest assured that our resident chief appraiser is at your service. Just place a simple call in advance to make sure the appraiser is available and their expertise will be at your disposal in no time.
Moreover, there are numerous experienced and knowledgeable appraisers working at Colonial Acres, all of whom will be happy to assess your collection. All you need to do is send an email or call the store (toll-free) and get a free quote. That being said, there is also the option of stopping by the store in person with your collection in hand, and our staff will sit down with you and assess your collection completely free of charge.
It should be said that there are a few simple steps you can perform to prepare your collection before stopping by Colonial Acres, for the purpose of speeding up the appraisal time. For example, if your paper money and coins are in albums, there’s no need to do anything; simply come by the store. When it comes to Canadian loose coins, you could try any of the following: firstly, separate the coins by denominations (1 cent, 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents, 50 cents, $1.00, $2.00). Then, sort the 1 and 5 cents by Monarchs (dates), 10 and 25 cents by years, 50 cents and $1.00 also by years and Canadian Paper Money by issue dates.
This way, you’ll save both your and the appraiser’s time, and will be given a quote without having to wait for the appraiser to sift through and categorize each coin themselves. Also, note that for local residents with larger collections, house calls are also available.
