RCI is the exclusive owner of all Website content, appearance, organization, and underlying software, code, and stored data, including but not limited to images, descriptions, text, prices, lists, articles, logos, audio and video. Your visitation to the Website, or usage of any features therein, does not grant You ownership of any feature or content contained therein

These Terms and Conditions (and the appraisemycoins.com website Terms and Conditions) govern this and any other sales transactions involving appraisemycoins.com (AMC) or its affiliates, including Rare Coin Investments (RCI).


  1. All persons selling coins or other collectibles to AMC or RCI, or to buyers identified through AMC or RCI represent and warrant that they:
    1. that they are over the age of 18 and have legal capacity to sell coins or collectibles;
    2. hold full and complete title to such coins and collectibles and have authority to sell without notice to, or consent of, any third party;
    3. are not selling coins and collectibles for personal, family or household purposes;
    4. are truthful in their descriptions of any items offered to or through AMC or RCI, particularly with respect to the items’ origin, condition, storage, and provenance, and are not failing to disclose any material aspect of those items;
    5. shall comply with all terms and conditions of any sale or other transaction they conclude with AMC or RCI, or any third party identified through AMC or RCI, including but not limited to delivery and payment terms and conditions;
    6. shall be fully responsible for and pay applicable income, sales, use or other taxes due to the U.S. or any State in connection with any items offered or sold to or through AMC or RCI.
  2. Sellers agree to indemnify and hold AMC and RCI harmless for any claims or costs whatsoever (including attorney’s fees) incurred as a result of any breach or alleged breach of the above representations and warranties.
  3. Seller acknowledges that in certain cases AMC and RCI may introduce Seller to third parties for purchase of their coins or collectibles, and in such case neither AMC nor RCI (a) is involved in the actual transaction between Seller and the buyer(s); (b) guarantees that a buyer will actually complete a transaction; (c) transfers legal ownership of items from Seller to buyer; (d) guarantees continuous or secure access to the AMC site. In the event of a dispute with any such buyer, Seller releases AMC and RCI (and their officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. California residents waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
  4. Seller further agrees that, to the extent legally permitted, AMC and RCI disclaim all implied warranties, terms and conditions and that neither company is liable for any loss of money, goodwill, or reputation, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages arising out of Seller’s use of the AMC site or RCI’s services in connection with the sale of coins or collectibles. If AMC or RCI is nevertheless found to be liable in connection with any sale to or through AMC or RCI, Seller agrees that this liability is limited to the amount of the purchase.
  5. Grades and descriptions of coins and collectibles are opinions, not statements of fact or guarantees, and are based on standards and interpretations that can and do change over time. AMC and RCI use contemporary grading standards and interpretations to grade coins, or rely upon the opinions of grading services such as PCGS and NGC. AMC and RCI do not guarantee that Seller’s coins or collectibles will be graded or evaluated the same way by any buyers identified through AMC or RCI, or any other grading or appraisal service in the future. AMC and RCI expressly disclaim any other warranties with respect to their opinions regarding coins or collectibles, express or implied, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.
  6. Seller acknowledges that the coin and collectibles markets are speculative, unregulated and volatile, and that prices may rise or fall over time. AMC and RCI do not guarantee that any Seller will be able to sell their items for the appraised values given by AMC or RCI, now or in the future. While AMC or RCI may voluntarily make an offer to purchase items from Seller, they are under no legal obligation to make such an offer, and AMC and RCI do not guarantee to make a market in any coin or collectible items. Seller acknowledges and agrees that AMC and RCI are in business for a profit, are not in a fiduciary relationship with Seller, and are buying coins and collectibles from Seller for re-sale at a profit.
  7. Seller acknowledges that AMC and RCI may be compensated by buyers, in the form of finder’s fees or otherwise, in connection with sales made by Seller through AMC or RCI, and Seller waives any conflict of interest or potential conflict of interest created thereby.
  8. Customer agrees that any legal action with respect to any AMC or RCI-related transaction shall be governed by New Jersey law, without regard to choice of law rules, and that any claim, dispute, or controversy in connection with any transaction Seller may have with AMC or RCI shall be presented to the American Numismatic Association, Colorado Springs, Colorado for mediation within one (1) year of the transaction or else waived. Should mediation be unsuccessful, Seller agrees that exclusive jurisdiction of any dispute shall be in the state courts of New Jersey sitting in Morris County, New Jersey. THE PARTIES EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY. The prevailing party in any court action (party that is awarded substantial and material relief on its claim or defense) shall be awarded its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
