A Heritage to 1937
Welcome to your new web home for attractive and accurately graded collector coins and currency. The name of Tipsico Coin has long stood for quality and value for the dollar spent. We trace our business heritage back to 1937, and have consistently provided a quality collector product, as well as personal customer service, both buying and selling. Our principle, Alex A. Pancheco, has been involved with coins for over 30 years, and understands that as a collector and consumer you have a wide choice of options today in whom you choose to spend your money with in today’s 24/7 web environment. You can see more details about the way we prefer to do business on the “Mission Statement” page on the drop down menu.
Quality and Value:
Tipsico Coin understands the importance in placing your trust with any dealer, when it comes to numismatics, and we work to earn it. We have one of the strictest “old time” grading standards for un-certified coins and currency, and select certified coins for accurate and consistent grading, and a nice original look. Maintaining a standard of high quality comes before making a quick buck, and we have one of the lowest return rates in the business (effectively “zero”). We also have a discount policy for cash payments – please see our “About Our Prices” page for details.
Our turnaround time is one of the fastest in the mail order business - orders usually ship within 48 hours, many the next day. We always try to respond to customer questions or issues about orders as promptly as possible, and have a "no worries" guarantee on returns if needed. We also offer a full range of services to both the novice as well as the advanced collector, including appraisals of authenticity and determination of value – unlike many in the coin business, I will always offer you my honest opinion and will admit it when I don't know.
A Website is essentially a constant "work in progress", so as we move further into our web-based business, we will naturally make changes to our site. This will include new pages of a purely informational value, covering topics important to collectors and investors such as grading and authentication. Also, we hope to make our traditional "hard copy" fixed price catalog available as a downloadable PDF file. We welcome your comments and questions regarding this site, or any other numismatic topic.
