My parents both recently moved into an assisted living facility. During their 50+ years together, they had the opportunity to travel the globe and raise a family of 5 children, all while running a successful business. During their travels, they collected a wide variety of items, ranging from tourist trinkets to antique carvings and cabinets from European castles to jewelry and furs to custom deep sea fishing equipment – the list is long and varied.
When the time came for them to move, they left a 3,000 square foot house and multiple storage units, all packed high with their collections and there was a desperate need to downsize. I did a lot of research, both locally and around the country to see where we would be able to sell their items while realizing the most money for them. I brought a variety of items to several different places and one of my stops was at Gulf Coast Coin & Jewelry.
The staff at Gulf Coast Coin & Jewelry amazed me right away with their knowledge about the items that I had brought in (and some were more unusual than others ). They took the time to fully explain the process of either buying some of the items outright (jewelry and coins) or placing them into one of their regular auctions, which are held on-site as well as being streamed live on the internet, increasing the potential buying pool many times over vs just a local auction. Unlike many other local auction houses that charge a high percentage, along with seller’s fees, Gulf Coast Coin & Jewelry has a sliding commission scale and no extra or hidden fees.
I’ve worked very closely with many of the staff members at Gulf Coast Coin & Jewelry and would like to acknowledge specifically Sam and Cassie, who took some of the more unique items and researched them in order to achieve the best and most realistic pricing.
I would highly recommend Gulf Coast Coin & Jewelry to anyone that is looking to downsize or looking to sell. Stop in & visit them – they have multiple locations in the area, are great to work with and have helped us tremendously with what seemed to be an unsurmountable task.

Wanted to let you know that I received the check for the Tuxedo clock. I wanted to thank you for helping me and keeping me informed with the auction process. When I have other items (multiple Lladro and Waterford) I will think of Gulfcoast Coin first.
