CAPTION: The International Coin Collectors Association is in Morgan Hill at the Ramada Inn, 16115 Condit Road, through Saturday. The show hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Old, gold, new or scrap – the International Coin Collectors Association is in Morgan Hill through Saturday as part of a worldwide tour.

The coin show is being held at the Ramada Inn, 16115 Condit Road, through Saturday. The show hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The ICCA will be purchasing coins, paper currency, gold and silver on behalf of their global network of collectors, dealers and refineries. This special event is free and open to the public.

“We hope to spend at least $250,000 while we are in town, purchasing people’s old coin collections, vintage bank notes and scrap gold and silver,” ICCA spokesman Mark Cooper said.

“It’s been all over the news – gold and silver are trading at record highs – and people everywhere are scrambling to cash in. We buy a lot of class rings, mismatched earrings and broken necklaces. Just a small handful of gold can add up to hundreds of dollars very quickly.”

Traveling from small towns to large cities, the ICCA hosts hundreds of events each year where local residents are encouraged to bring in their precious metals, old coins and paper money to earn extra cash.

While meeting one-on-one with each guest, the ICCA specialists review, research and evaluate the items and will make an offer to purchase all gold coins, silver coins made before 1965 and paper money printed prior to 1934. The amount of the offer depends on the silver or gold content, how collectible they are, the rarity and the condition of the items. If the guest decides to accept the offer made, a check will be issued on the spot.
