"Life is too short to buy ugly coins."
Who We Are
Numismatist George Huber sold his first coins at age 12. George was always a dealer and collector; he began searching rolls and filling blue Whitman folders with Lincoln cents around 1961. He remembers going to the bank with his Dad and buying beautiful, shiny Morgan silver dollars for face value in 1962. Thus began his lifetime love of numismatics. He was a collector and vestpocket dealer for decades. He began operating under the VDB Coins name in 2004 and launched VDBCoins.com in 2009. George retired from a long career in marketing and communications in 2005 and worked until 2017 as a full-time contract U.S. coins cataloger for Heritage Auctions. We sell only via the Web, through our personal contacts, and the occasional show visit. We have no brick and mortar shop, which helps keep prices down. All coins are kept in bank vaults.
Expect every coin you purchase from us to have strong eye appeal and be solid for the grade, based on our own experience rather than CAC or any other outside entity. We are open to reasonable offers on any coin, although we work on small markups and usually don't have much wiggle room.
We have built our business slowly, focusing on top-notch customer service and honesty, integrity, and responsiveness. We offer high-quality, one-of-a-kind collector coins and personal, no-hassle service. Eye appeal is always our foremost consideration when buying. We appreciate your interest in our business and our coins. Please look around and buy! Much of our business is repeat business, and to our knowledge we have never had an unhappy client. We want to keep it that way.
We specialize in the series we love. Lincoln cents, Kennedy halves, Canadian and British Empire coins are among them, but we offer a wide range of collector coins, including:
In 2015 and again in 2016 we were honored to win the PCGS Best Modern Set award for our Kennedy Half Dollar Complete Variety Set, Circulation Strikes (1964-present), the #1-rated set and 100% complete.
