an EASIER way to do coins


Asheville coin shop WNC Coins has it's roots in a mail order coin business founded by Professional Numismatist Michael S. Swoveland in 1994. The company specialized in foreign and ancient coinage. As the internet age dawned in the mid 1990s, WNC Coins became a pioneer in using the internet to buy and sell coins and we were one of the early members of a then unknown auction platform called eBay. During the years that have passed we have had the pleasure of placing tens of thousands of coins and banknotes with collectors.

During the years we have developed a large national and international network of dealers and specialists. Knowing who is currently looking for which coins allows us to pay more when we are buying. This also means that we can find that special coin you are looking for.
