About Us


At Markham Numismatic, we want you to get more cash for your prized possessions. The only way we are able to do this is our unsurpassed knowledge and experience when it comes to your gold, silver and rare coins. Typical scrap gold buying dealers will not know the difference between a highly valuable coin and average coin. To learn more see our section towards the bottom on our homepage “Silver Coins Dealer.” Our goal is to see you come back again as a satisfied customer, having received the most value for your jewelry, gold, coins or diamonds.

People are often confused at our ability to offer the highest value for precious metals. The secret behind our success is simple. Other gold buyers will evaluate your jewelry based only on weight, and from that measurement will pay you approximately one-third of the resale value. Most retailers won’t tell you the actual value of your gold and will sell your items to refineries for extraction. With 25 years experience and grader for the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and a nationally recognized numismatist, Markham Numismatic is here to give you the most for your precious gold, coins, diamonds, metals and jewelry.

We are the only a coin dealer but a gold buyer that has a global network of resources. We won’t give you pocket change for your jewelry or gold because we have a wider access to precious metal buyers from around the world that our competitors don’t. These buyers specialize in watches, gold coins, silver coins, estate jewelry, diamonds, colored stones, and sterling silver. Because of our connections, we buy the rarest and most unique items for resale to international collectors. As a result, our distributors get more of the products that they want and our customers get more value for their items. Don’t sell for less.

Feature Editorial: Turning a Childhood Hobby Into a Lifelong Passion

When Howard Markham was just a boy often he would tag along with his father to coin stores and coin shows and buy coins. With the encouragement of his father he developed a passion for coins and started his own collection.

True experience and knowledge of the coin business is gathered slowly from seeing millions of coins, understanding how each mint and each year has different characteristic features and seeing counterfeits first hand.  It is not something you learn overnight.  It takes years of experience in the trade. Howard became an expert by working in the coin business since he was 16.  At 19, he worked as a coin buyer for David Hall rare coins and later worked as a coin grader for Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS ) grading coins at the age
of 21. Being an expert is not just a word but the knowledge gathered in a lifetime.

When you are looking to sell your coins and other  fine possessions you must trust who you are dealing with and their unsurpassed knowledge. Markham Numismatic has earned that trust and respect in the industry.  Typical  buying dealers do not know the difference between a highly valuable coin and an average coin. Some will evaluate your coin or estate jewelry  based on scrap value, which is the least an item could be worth. This is where the many years of experience and knowledge of Markham Numismatic sets them apart from the norm and establishes them as the company to go to when you are in the market to  sell your coins or other high end valuables.

Markham Numismatics in Riverside has been in the business for over 30 years. They are by appointment only, which allows them to give their customers the personal and professional service and attention they deserve. If you have gold, silver, platinum, diamonds, high-end jewelry, wrist watches, estate jewelry or paper money you wish to sell, call for an appointment.
