After months of renovations, Michael McConnell, who owns San Diego Coin & Bullion in the Clairemont area has reopened La Jolla’s historic Coin Shop at 7746 Girard Ave. after purchasing it in June. The Coin Shop is back to business as usual and is actively buying and selling rare coins and precious metals, just as the store has done since 1964.

The shop deals in collectible U.S., foreign and ancient coinage and buys and sells precious metal coins and bars. The shop also boasts a nice selection of PCGS and NGC graded coins, modern sets, collectable paper money and a wide variety of supplies for every level of collector.

McConnell is excited to be the new owner of such a longstanding business in the community and encourages locals to stop in and say hello. He has been a professional numismatist for over 25 years. Between him and his staff, there is 50 years of experience in many different areas of the hobby, making it the most comprehensive retail coin firm in San Diego.

Using his vast experience to help educate the public on all things coin and bullion, McConnell is writing a monthly column on lajollalight.com, offering tips and information on buying and selling precious metals and rare coins. His monthly column can be found at lajollalight.com/columns/.

The Coin Shop’s current hours of operation are Tuesday — Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Expanded hours will be added soon. You can reach the Coin Shop at 858-459-2228 or check them out at www.sandiegocoinblog.com.
