McALLEN -- Have you ever wondered what those old silver coins in your coffee can were worth? When was the last time you even pulled out from your closet, basement or attic? Well, now is the time to begin your hunt, because the International Coin Collectors Association is coming to McAllen in search of the most rare coins in world.

The ICCA has recently uncovered some rare coins that might have been hiding in a closet or attic near you. An 1894 S Barber dime sold for a whopping $1.9 million! A gold coin collection uncovered in a small North Carolina town for $120,000! A penny was even recently sold for over $300 at a show in Georgia.

What kind of collectible coins will be found during our trip? You or your next-door neighbor just might be the next one to find a jackpot in the attic. Start digging now and be ready to have some fun and make some money.

During this event at the Hilton Garden Inn, collectors are hoping to see items such as coins and paper currency issued prior to 1965 and gold items including class rings, mismatched earrings, broken necklaces, gold coins and bullion. Coin collectors are very serious about their hobby—so serious that they will pay a lot of money for the items that they are looking for. Nearly all coins, vintage jewelry, bullion, Krugerrands and paper currency from the early 20th century and later are sought after by collectors. 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 collectors are willing to pay. Then, when one decides to sell, they get paid on the spot and the ICCA sends the item to the collector at their expense.

Keep an open mind when going through your attics, basements, garages and closets. You could come across the next big find. Whether you have an old Morgan silver dollar, a blanket bill, pocket watch, or just a class ring from high school, bring it down to the show and find out what it’s worth. You could be paid on the spot for it. Don’t have a Morgan silver dollar or Krugerrand? No problem—the ICCA even purchases gold items. If you have mismatched earrings, a broken necklace, or even costume jewelry, we have the resources to buy them at fair prices.
