Appraising coins today requires exceptional experience and skill, because of the increasing sophistication of counterfeiters using computers.
And even in the old-fashioned realm, evaluation of coins requires long and wide experience.
Richard Dan, who founded Kamaaina Loan And Cash For Gold, has worked for decades as an appraiser throughout Hawaii and has had his work accepted by courts throughout the state in probate, conservatorships and other matters. He has been buying and selling coins for decades.
As Maui’s oldest and largest pawn shop and second hand dealer, we see every kind of coin and we have the resources to evaluate condition, authenticity and, most important, value. Richard is a member of the National and Hawaii Pawnbrokers Associations, the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors and the American Numismatic Association. He is a graduate of the Gemological Institute of America, and his business is a member of the Better Business Bureau. For experience, integrity and resources, Kamaaina Loan is unrivaled for its appraisal services.
