ModernCoinMart (MCM) is a store on eBay selling silver and gold bullion, coins, and precious metals. They have been selling on eBay since 1999. Click on the blue link above to check out their store, and to see what specials and sales they are currently offering. Asides from sales and specials, they usually have both a gold and silver “deal of the week”.
If you wanted to know where to buy gold and silver bars or bullion, eBay probably isn’t the first place most interested buyers would first look – at least that’s my opinion. But looking at their feedback history, you can see that they have over 366,000 positive ratings, as well as a 99.9% score. So they definitely have their share of volume on eBay, as well as the feedback history to earn respectability. You can’t accumulate over 300,000 positive feedback unless you are selling good quality products, and offering excellent customer service. This is also a Top-Rated store on eBay.
It’s not easy to become a Top-Rated store on eBay. You have to provide good quality items, accurate descriptions, excellent customer service, and fast shipping. And you have to do this day after day, month after month. So ModernCoinMart has had a very successful and positive selling history on eBay.
With common eBay purchases, you don’t really think too deeply about the purchase. Either you want the item or not – and if you do, either the price is right, or it’s not. With collectibles, coins, precious metals, etc; the sellers reputation has as much to do with the purchase as the price. Buying gold and silver isn’t a snap decision.
ModernCoinMart goes a long way in providing the buyer with security. They have the excellent selling history mentioned above. But they also provide you with certifications from organizations like the Professional Numismatists Guild, Florida United Numismatists, Inc, American Numismatic Association, and PCGS.
If that isn’t enough, if you click on their About Us page, you can learn a lot more about their company, as well as some of the people in charge of the company. You don’t see too many eBay stores that have pictures of the actual people in charge. ModernCoinMart really wan’t to make you feel secure about your purchase, and it shows. They go a long way in establishing their credibility, but also their integrity.
I used to collect coins and stamps when I was a kid. Back then, you either had to have your parents drive you to a local coin and card shop, or attend a coin show. And even then, it was hard enough to find what you wanted. Ebay (and the internet) has really transformed collecting as a hobby.
What I like or don’t like
Their store navigation is fairly useful. You get a top navigational bar, with all of the categories that they sell. From there, you also get a left side menu. Their left side eBay category listing is quite extensive. If you click on a main category, you then have multiple sub categories to choose from, like type, brand, etc. Once you get into a listing, the same menu carries over.
One thing that I really appreciate about this store is the quality of their listings. Each listing has a large picture, so you’re not left playing a guessing game. It can get really annoying when you’re looking at a listing and wondering if it’s the right color, size, model, etc. With a lot of sellers, you just get that one small stock photo, so detailed listings like these are good to have.
Their attention to detail in their listings, and their stellar feedback really makes you feel secure in shopping from this eBay store. Modern Coin Mart does not accept returns, so make sure you want what you are ordering. However, if you receive an incorrect or damaged item, you are still covered by eBay’s 60-day buyer protection.
