Colorado Springs is the next stop for the ICCA’s world tour. During this event at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center, our collectors are hoping to see items such as coins and paper currency issued prior to 1965, gold items included class rings, mismatched earrings, broken necklaces, gold coins and bullion. These items are highly sought after by collectors from around the world!
These collectors are very serious about their hobby; so serious that they will pay a lot of money for the items they are looking for. Nearly all coins, vintage jewelry, bullion, Kruggerands, paper currency from the early 1900’s and 1800’s . The ICCA is a place where anyone in your community can connect with collectors from around the globe. Our experts make offers based on what our collectors are willing to pay. Then when someone decides to sell, they get paid on the spot and our experts send the item to the collector at their expense.
Keep in open mind when going through your attics and closets. You could come across the next big find! Whether you have an old Morgan silver dollar, blanket bill, pocket watch, or just a class ring from when you were in high school, bring it down to the show and find out what it’s worth and possibly even get paid for it right on the spot. Don’t have a Morgan dollar, or Kruggerand? No problem, the ICCA even purchases gold items! If you have mismatched ear rings, a broken necklace, or even costume jewelry, we have the resources to pay top dollar for your gold and silver items.
