After the Coin Show


The 2016 McMinnville Coin Club Coin Show at Chinook Winds Casino in Lincoln City, Oregon was a big hit this Valentine’s Weekend. While there, NwPlaza met with a variety of collectors and dealers and acquired some amazing coins.  Silver Russian Kopecks, Canadian silver 50c pieces, historic Mexican silver Pesos and a low-mintage 1936 York County Half Dollar, just some of the coins we brought back to our shop.

Chinese Silver Pandas and Mexican Libertads were big sellers at NwPlaza’s booth this year. Collectors enjoy these high luster World coins that make a nice addition to any collection.

Come in to NwPlaza Coins in downtown Vancouver this weekend and see all the coins we brought back from the show. The 2017  coin show will again be held at Chinook Winds Casino.  If you have never been or are a regular attendee, be sure to mark your calendar and join us February 11-12, 2017.

Completing your collection


A customer recently emailed NwPlaza Coins wanting to complete his Lincoln Cent collection.  He provided us with a list of the coins he was having trouble finding by date, mint mark, condition and strike.  The challenge he faced was he only wanted Proof, Satin and Brilliant Uncirculated coins to fill his folders.  No problem for us getting these coins from our list of collectors.  We replied to his email with a price quote and payment link for him to pre-pay for his order and within a few business days he was able to pick up his coins in-store.

No doubt, the fun part of collecting can be the hunt.  However, when you get to a point where you just want the folder completed or have hit a dead end finding the coins you’re wanting, NwPlaza makes it convenient for you to complete that collection.  Visit our webpage and contact us with your list of hard-to-find coins.
