I was so impressed with the lay out of this store and the selection unlike anything else in Vegas .BUT I would never shop here I can get better prices elsewhere .So yes go look but save money and go to a wholesale dealer.

coin value grossly understated by 2 self proclaimed coin experts. neither looked at coin under a scope like the lab did that assigned its rating. I guess they are busy but does that mean u and I get poor evaluations I don't think so in my case I will go elsewhere. I suggest u do too.

I purchased 8 "Investment" gold coins from Sahara Coins, trusting the PCGS and Trends values they provided me with (in writing), in support of their offering prices to me. I later discovered these prices were substantially inflated. I called and wrote to the owner Mr Scott, who responded in a surprisingly combative manner, threatening in his first response to me, that if I write or contact them again I will be receiving a subpoena. "If you could forward your attorneys name to me we will let the people who protect me from any false accusations handle this matter from this point forward. We will also need your personal contact information for the subpoena for the depositions our people will need to arrange with you at their offices." He also said "Technically we can charge 10 times over trends".

This kind of unprovoked aggressiveness is atrocious behavior by anyone's standards. He was not willing to make the slightest effort to investigate what happened, or even have a discussion about it.

What an extraordinary shop! An AMAZING variety of coins, both slabbed and raw, a gigantic array of silver and gold bullion too!! I was very impressed. But they still had to pass the most important test of all: how well did they pay for my coins? I brought in only 8 coins. 6 of them were Barber dimes, 1 was a two-cent piece, and the final coin was a Seated Liberty half dime. The gentleman who helped me was very professional. He took the time to study EACH COIN under heavy lighting and magnification, then quoted me a price for each one, coin by coin. When he was done, he gave me a total that I was very pleased with. I asked "what reference do you use to acquire these prices"? He answered "we use the dealer's grey sheet. After we grade the coin, we pay you 85% of the bid price". And sure enough, he did! I cant tell you how HIGH that is for a dealer to pay the public! Please take your coins here and you'll have a much bigger payday than you will at others in town (I got a quote the previous day from American coin express and was sorry I did. They are scam artists and they didn't look at A SINGLE ONE OF MY COINS under magnification. I was quoted 60 CENTS per Barber dime, then happened to notice they actually had a sign posted on the wall in plain view that read "generic buy prices", and on it, it read Barber dimes=same as 90%, which means they pay you the same price for that dime as they would for a 1964 dime!! Absolutely disgraceful!) Anyway, I'll review them later....for now, THANK YOU Sahara coin for buying coins the right way.

I wrote a review for American coin express on here a couple days ago, and then I realized its only fair to give praise where its due after giving the F grade to a.c.e. I'd like to thank Sahara coin for being honest. They've been in town since the 1980's for a REASON, while the other "shop" (A.C.E) is relatively new, dishonest, and occupy three stores now (from what I've heard). They must think that quantity matters, but not QUALITY!! Sahara coins paid me DOUBLE on a bag of old mixed dimes and quarters than what the crooks at American coin offered me. I did my homework at only 2 businesses in town and learned a lesson. Thank you Sahara coin for being the highest bidders, and by far, the nicest store. When you walk in, its glistening and clean. When I went into American coin express on Meadows, there were cobwebs all along their security bars, torn up flooring, and a stale pungent odor. No wonder they're located in a shopping center thats mostly closed and surrounded by two thrift stores! Go to Sahara coins...if its an extra gallon of gas to get there, you're out 3 bucks...then you get there and get paid INSANELY more, so it's worth it in every aspect!!

These guys have the nicest store in town I can spend hours there looking at their coins BUT I would never buy their since they mark up their collectable coins 2-3 hundred percent and when selling coins they only pay okey on gold and silver bullion coins everything else makes them come up short at best the place to buy coins is Heritage auctions and to sell in town American Coin Express they are real wholesalers.

I was so frustrated about my experiences with a couple of coin stores in Las Vegas that when I saw the owner of Sahara Coins on Pawn Stars I knew I had to go and find him for help. My dad had left me several boxes of Silver Dollars that my dad swore were worth loads of money. But all the other shops told me they were worthless. I just couldn't believe my dad would not have told me the truth. So I found Sahara Coins and low and behold, my dad was right and those other guys were just trying to rip me off. Mark, the owner took so much time with me explaining everything so that if I decided to sell my coins to him I would feel comfortable.
I am letting everyone know that Mark and his staff are so wonderful. I think everyone should go into his store and meet him!!

I have never experienced such poor service in any establishment in my life. I walked in close to closing time and there were a few people ahead of me. I waited patiently for someone to help me.

Although there were several people in the office only one guy was actually working. The lady apparently went for a smoke break and when the guy working asked for some one to help me he was told - right in front of me - that no, this other guy had to go return some calls. I feel really badly for the one guy actually trying!

When I confronted the manager about this rude behavior I was told that this was my problem and that he could tell I had a chip on my shoulder. I was actually planning to spend quite a lot of money in the store, buying special Christmas presents for my brand new niece and nephew, but not anymore! Will never go there again and would never recommend it to anyone!

I never write these things but i just had to say something. I almost believed the obviously fake reviews by what must be very jealous competitors of this store. 1st one said 2 teenagers ran the store. The youngest guy there looked 45-50 or so and i saw 5 people. 2nd i took my coins in and i thought i knew a little bit about them. Jeff Gresser spent an hour going over my coins and offered me $2800 for them and showed me how one of my coins was UNDER graded and was now worth much more than i paid for it. I went to 3 other stores in Las Vegas including the worst "American something or other" near meadows mall (they were nice enough to say my coins were in pretty bad shape but they would try to sell them somehow and offered me $1100. The other store in Henderson offered me "The highest Price in town of $1550." Thanks but no thanks. WOW. Thanks Sahara Coins and please keep Jeff!

Their prices are very unrealistic. I did my comparison shopping, and they were outlandishly HIGH!! They offered me an insulting amount of money for my bullion and my collection....way way WAY too low, even by a conservative man's standards!! Not just that, but their arrogance and snooty attitudes will lose them more customers than gain them....the 2 guys I talked to that work there looked around 15 years old and had the knowledge to match. These guys can't hold a candle to some coin shops I've been to in MUCH SMALLER towns! Sahara coins is a HUGE disappointment....

Oh brother---what an embaressment to retail this shop is. The staff ignored me, the prices were a joke, and they were very rude to another gentleman very close to me. I asked if they had any silver bullion available and they told me "No", but 5 minutes later, I saw an employee produce a small box FULL of silver rounds and eagles for a customer nearby me and he only bought a few...so I asked again "Do you have any silver bullion?" to a DIFFERENT employee and they also told me "NO"!! What nerve these guys have!! They need to brush up on their people skills, learn how to talk to customers, and get their heads out of their #$^&

Sahara coins is a gorgeous store! There's more than just coins there (I saw collectables in the form of old safes, scales, gas pumps, paper money, neon signs, etc). The coin selection is 2ND TO NONE!!! I have been in twice recently, sold a one ounce gold maple leaf, and got OVER SPOT FOR IT!!!! They treat you like the gold they buy and sell, so HATS OFF to you Sahara Coins! You are MILES ahead of the other dreary, empty coin stores in town. I suggest all of you visit the store if for no other reason, just to see some history and a museum setting!

I have done business with the staff at Sahara Coins for over 12 Years. They have been forthright and honest with me since day one. If every business was run like they ran theirs there would be no need for reviews. A special thanks to Mark and Robert who have steered me in the right direction year after year. Another incident worth mentioning is how i met them. My first experience was when i inherited a large group of coins from my Grandmother and took them to 4 different coinshops in Las Vegas and one in LA. Sahara Coins paid me $37,220 right on the spot and the next higest offer was for $21,000 (and that place needed a couple of days to pull the money together). They just do it all the right way.

I just found this store after moving here from Southern California. I am a very knowledgeable Coin buyer and seller having been a collector of rare coins and gold and silver for over 25 years. I have read all of the reviews on this company and after visiting Sahara Coins it has become obvious to me that some, if not all, of the negative reviews have been written by very envious competitors. This store and its employees go above and beyond with the knowledge they have. Jeff is a lifetime member of the EAC (Early American Copper Club) and loves sharing his knowledge with anyone whom asks. Mason Is and outright expert on Morgan Dollars and many other series of U.S. Coins. Mark, the owner, i found out was chosen by the State of Nevada Treasurer to appraise all of the States holdings and is the Expert of choice for the Pawnstars series on the history channel. He possesses a depth of knowledge that is the strongest i have seen in all my years dealing with some of the best Coin Stores in the country. They are the only store that plainly states their buy and sell prices for over 6oo items right there on the Projection screen inside the store. When i was in a couple of other stores in the Valley before finding Sahara Coins i would always hear the others say "What do you want for it" hoping of course that the customer would say a figure much less than the item is worth. I have never heard this at Sahara Coins and i have spent countless hours in this store. I have access to the entire internet and all of the by mail coin stores but i feel that Sahara Coins earns my business over and over again every time i walk in the door. I have never spent so much time writing a review but these folk deserve it.

Pros: Selection, Friendly Staff, Pricing, Fairness, Knowledge

Cons: Hours

They have a very nice selection but the prices are horrible. They are charging nearly $5 over spot, for silver per ounce and $100 over spot, for gold per ounce. I do not recommend you shop at this store if you value your money. You will do better on the internet.

I have gone into Sahara Coins many many times to buy my favorite; American Gold Eagles. They have an amazing staff that is very helpful I spoke with Raymond on the Phone and he gave me bullion prices and answered some very odd questions i had, he also let me know that i can get the buy and sell spread on there site www.Saharacoins com. I went in to buy some bullion and was greeted very kindly by Cheryl and was able to speak with the owner Mark about how he aquired the beautiful motorcylce that they have in the shop. I also wanted to sell some silver bullion and trade it for gold so i work with Jeff in the buy booth and he was amazing, i had sold many times before but he still walked me through all of his steps to be sure that I knew what was happening with the deal. As i was leaving i had a few other questions and the only one readily available at that time was Mason, and needless to say I left with a wallet full of business cards and some very nice Eagles. I was lucky enough to work with the entire staff of Sahara Coins and I am looking forward to doing business there for years to come. The one down side is that the store closes 30 minutes before I get off, so I either haveto sneak there on my lunch or on a Saturday.

I had collected as a child and recently decided to start collecting again, but this time strictly for investment purposes. I am a lifelong Las Vegan and quite familiar with run of the mill coin shops, swap meets, jewelers and pawnbrokers who sell coins and bullion. Upon walking into the Sahara Coins store though, I was in complete awe of the sheer size of the store. I was equally impressed with the variety and assortment of coins for sale. The huge inventory consisted of raw and slabbed coins, key and semi-key coins which is my personal preference. Since I am re-entering coin collecting at a later stage of life, I was very happy to discover that they offer quite an inventory of complete sets of pennies; nickels and dimes which helped me to jump start my collection. They did not have for sale problem coins, so I felt confident in the integrity of the store and the quality of their coins. I had expressed an interest in some coins which were not in their current inventory and they were happily willing to find what I was looking for and hold it until my next visit. The sales people were extremely patient and polite and very informative. All other stores in Las Vegas pale in comparison to Sahara Coins. I would highly recommend this store to anyone I know who is considering buying coins or investing in their future.

I had collected as a child and recently decided to start collecting again, but this time strictly for investment purposes. I am a lifelong Las Vegan and quite familiar with run of the mill coin shops, swap meets, jewelers and pawnbrokers who sell coins and bullion.

Pros: Friendly and Knowledgeable Staff, Great Environment

Cons: Wish they were open Sundays

I brought some gold in to be refined. They told me on the phone that sending it out through them was the "best" "safest" way to have it refined and get paid for it. I was told it would take about 7 days. 18 days and several phone calls later, they are telling me that it is not refined yet. They can't give me an idea of when it might be done. They can't call the company to find out this information. They can't ("will not" was the term they used) call the refinery to ask them to just send the gold back to me so that I can bring it some place else. They don't want to hear the fact that since I haven't been paid for the gold, it is not theirs. When the owner got on the phone he said there was nothing he could do for me and that I should call my attorney. He was rude, argumentative and finally hung up on me. I would be very careful about any transactions you might consider doing with them.

I just got back from Sahara coins, the store seemed very nice as well as the people compared to other shops why because there prices are highway robbery. They sqeeze the consumer on buying and selling offering horid prices compared to others in town. Use ebay, not these guys.

I cannot stop raving about Sahara Coins to all my friends and family. Just the other week I took my sons out for the day to hang out. We went to a few coin stores in town to see if i could get my sons a morgan dollar to start their collection. Every where we went seemed to have either too little to choose from or the prices were astronomicle. Then we found Sahara Coins, their selection was amazing and their prices were extremely fair. Nothing in town compares to it, and the staff there is awesome. They definitely made the day fun for me and my boys.

I needed to sell a 1oz gold coin and Sahara Coins paid the most by a long shot! The staff really know their business and they are so helpful and friendly. I was amazed at the amount of inventory they have and all the neat & unusual collectibles. They even have coins and old paper money in the floor!
If I need to sell or buy gold or silver coins I won't go anywhere else!

Recently I visited Sahara Coins and Collectables and I was really impressed with the store. They had a wide selection of coins, bullion, bank notes and various other collectables as well as supplies for each. I picked up a few supplies and a 2008 silver eagle. The only bad thing I have to say is when i tried to return the following Thursday to show a friend of mine the store they didnt let us enter because they said they had a private collection showing.

I had purchased some "silver panda" coins from E-Bay. There are a lot of counterfeits out there so I wanted my coins looked at. I took them here and the dealer I spoke to took careful measurements and weighed them for me. Gave me his appraisal that they appeared to be authentic. Then he showed me some similar coins that I might be interested in and gave me a great price.

My experience was that the staff was knowledgeable, helpful, and offered fair prices for their goods. What more could you ask for?
