Stamp section closed down and the dude who ran it sold the store to the resident coin master Peter and the change could not be more welcome. He is incredibly well versed, unbelievably fair, and also an all around delight to do business with. He not only took coins that the competition down the street which isn't worth mentioning but runs quite the TV ad campaign, but made me regret selling any coins to them at all. He quoted me a very fair price then told me , that I could probably get more than that for it when he saw i was so satisfied and tagged on an extra $30+ to ensure that I would return and also in a show of great faith/honesty. If you have any kinda of coin to sell, or just want to learn about this interesting trade that gets an undeserved boring rap, come down and chat with Mr Spooner. Make sure to have him show you his book on Arizona tokens. I mean he literally wrote the book on coins...

Known Peter for 50 years give or take. Did not know he was owner of that business. Walked in and gave him my card,when he saw my name he instantly recognized it. Had a nice conversation with him. He knows the value of good dealings with all ages of collectors,regardless how much they spend. Offers years of knowledge freely from his coin experiences. His mentor was one of the most knowledgeable and respectable coin dealer in the US. Believe it from a local boy and former coin dealer/collector that knows the business himself.... Best regards Peter in your new store. Donel.
After reading other online reviews, I decided to go to Arizona Stamp & Coin to learn about buying gold. They were very informative and helpful. I was not pushed to buy anything, so I felt comfortable in there. The staff was very nice. There appeared to be a large selection of different gold and silver coins and bullion. I bought some 1 oz gold bars at a good price.
