Extensive collection of coins and rare/precious US currency. Great to buy a Virginia City Minted Coin from the Comstock Lode for history buffs. In house museum had a great variety of jewelry and china from around the world.

I was hoping for more here, they run a small mint where they do some work. The place is mainly about silver and jewelry sales. The "museum" side of the store is nothing special.

The part that was considered a museum was semi precious stones, raw gold, turquoise and various old coins. It was interesting in its own right.

While you're in town you might as well stop by, it's free and interesting. It's near the downhill end of the city and has a little set of steps, only 5 or 6, - the kind that you see going over fences. Up the stairs...More

The museum had some interesting information and specimens ( gold nuggets) on display. The price of their coins is a little exaggerated but I guess that is because it is a tourist attraction.

The museum was pretty interesting and they have some really nice jewelry. Rather pricey but this is a tourist town in Nevada. Lots of silver in various quantities and other shiny and sparkly things.
