Frequently Asked Questions

How We Pay

How long does it take to get my offer?

Legacy guarantees that you will receive an offer the same day. Once we have appraised your items, getting paid is simple and easy.

What are my payment options?

Cash, Company Check, or Bank Wire (ACH) transfer.

What We Buy

Do you buy coins, bars or bullion?

Yes we do!

  • U.S. Gold Eagles
  • Canadian Gold Maples
  • U.S. Silver Eagles
  • Canadian Silver Maples
  • South African Krugerrands
  • 90% Junk Silver (pre-1965 half-dollars, quarters, dimes, etc.)
  • Australian Mint (Perth Mint)
  • Gold Philharmonics (from Austria)

Do you buy silver?

We love to buy silver! We accept anything that is pure silver or sterling silver. However, we do not buy silver plated items.

The difference between Sterling Silver and Pure Silver: Pure Silver (99.9% or .999) is an incredibly soft metal, which would make it hard to cast into specific objects such as silverware or jewelry, so you will typically only find this in the form of bars or coins for commodity exchanges. A harder form of silver is sterling silver. Alloys are added to the metal to increase its durability, reduce tarnish, and improve surface. Sterling silver will typically be made up of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. This is the version of silver that most silverware and silver jewelry are made of.

Are there items you don't buy?

Yes. We do not buy:

  • Costume jewelry
  • Gold or Silver-Plated Coins or Jewelry

If I’m unsure of what I have, can I still call you?

Of course. Please call us at (516) 470-1973. We can assist.

How do I know if my item is gold, silver, or platinum?

It can be difficult to know if your items contain gold, silver, or platinum. But do not worry, Legacy will determine your item's metal type, weight, condition, purity, and grade.

We want you to know that our trained, ANA educated buyers show a true passion for the numismatic and precious metal industry and they make this process easy and transparent. For over 40 years, our buyers have been traveling the United States purchasing numismatic rarities and precious metal materials.

Our clients are confident that they are getting the most accurate, current market pricing. That is because we derive our pricing models from recently sold listings in the numismatic industry and market trends.

We are clear and forthcoming with our offer so that you understand the current value of your material. You'll feel comfortable engaging with a knowledgeable specialist. We thank you for your interest, we look forward to speaking with you, and evaluating your collection.
