Littleton Coin Company is an employee-owned business and the 2016 recipient of the New Hampshire Better Business Bureau's Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics. Since its beginnings in 1945, the company has had only two leaders at the helm – the founder, Maynard Sundman, and his son, current president, David Sundman.
Built by collectors for collectors, our company is dedicated to providing quality products and friendly service – both cornerstones of the business. Under David’s leadership, our product line has continued to grow and expand. Today we are an established leader in the collecting hobby, providing quality coins, bank notes and collector merchandise. As such, we have a continuous need for coins and currency.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you buy Proof and Mint Sets?
Yes. Depending on the year and the contents of the set, some years are better than others and we pay accordingly.
Do you buy Modern U.S. Coins?
Aside from Proof and Mint Sets, and silver and gold coins, at this time we're only interested in pre-1964 coins.
What are my Modern Dollar coins worth?
Eisenhower, Susan B. Anthony, Sacagawea and Presidential dollars are always popular and many people collect them, but at this time we are not buying them.
What are my Silver Dollars worth?
We are interested in purchasing all silver dollars 1794 to present.
The price of silver fluctuates daily and affects your coin's value. Other factors affecting value are the condition or grade, mintage, mint mark and availability. Because many factors make up the grade of a coin (wear, marks, luster and strike, to name a few), our experts need to physically inspect it to accurately assess and determine its value.
What are my Wheat pennies worth?
Wheat back (Wheatie) Lincoln cents of 1909 to 1958 are popular, and depending on the date, can be quite plentiful. But here are some of the Key Dates, which may be more valuable, depending on their condition:
- 1909-S VDB
- 1922 Plain (no D)
- 1955 Doubled Die
Do you buy collectible currency?
Yes, we’re always looking for U.S. paper money (bank notes) dated 1963 and earlier.
Do you buy non-U.S. currency?
No, not at this time.
My small-size bank note has red ink on it, what does that mean?
Your note is a Legal Tender or "red seal" note. These types of notes were issued from 1928 to 1963, and we're always interested in them (depending on condition).
How do you determine the price for gold or silver?
The most important factor is condition and rarity. Some bullion coins carry a premium over their melt value. Because the price of gold and silver fluctuates daily, the price for common gold and silver coins will be based on current market value.
How do I sell my damaged or unwanted gold, silver or platinum jewelry?
We make it easy for you! We’ll sort and weigh your jewelry by purity (karat) and make you an offer based on the current price of gold and silver.
Do I have to pre-sort my collection?
No, we have highly trained staff that will classify the items in your collection and assess them. For a beginner, sorting a collection can be difficult, so we have certified numismatists who will help make the process of sorting stress free for you. However, if you choose to sort your own collection, feel free to contact our experts with your questions.
