National Coin Collectors Association holds event in Princeton

PRINCETON — For five days, members of the National Coin Collectors Association will assist local residents with evaluating all types of U.S. and foreign coins and currency.

Anyone interested in selling their items can be connected with member-collectors wanting to purchase coins for their collections. The process is free, and there is no obligation to sell anything.

This event began on Tuesday and will continue through Saturday. Members of the public are welcome to attend the event at the AmericInn Lodge & Suites, 2120 Claude Bailey Parkway, Princeton, the Quality Inn, 5240 Trompeter Road, Peru, or the Hampton Inn, 4155 Holiday Lane, Ottawa, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Participating NCCA members will also make house calls and conduct bank visits on request.

During this event, anyone can bring in gold or silver coins and currency to have experts examine them free of charge. Offers to purchase will be made based on that day’s silver and gold market, as well as the condition and rarity of the coins.

Gold buyers are also on hand during the coin show. If you have gold, platinum or silver jewelry you might want to bring it to this event. You can have it tested, weighed and valued free of charge. If interested in selling, they can accommodate that too. Buyers will be on hand all week examining and purchasing all types of jewelry; even costume jewelry is wanted.
