Lincoln Coin and Bullion, LLC was founded in 2006 by Scott & Deb Olson and was purchased by Pat and Jennifer Moran in Fall 2019. Pat, a Registered Mechanical Engineer, aspired to own a business and as fortune would have it, the Olson’s were ready to retire. With a steep learning curve ahead of him, Pat quickly stepped into his new ownership role and has enjoyed serving Lincoln Coin and Bullion’s previous and new customers since. Scott and Deb have been gracious in still offering their assistance occasionally, and the LCB team appreciates their willingness to answer questions and provide additional training as needed. Having owned the business for 14 years, they are a great resource of knowledge and Pat is unequivocally committed to maintaining the same level of expertise and professionalism that the Olsons brought to the company as the founding owners.
We strive to help our customers achieve their goals. Whether it is purchasing bullion, or understanding and valuing a recently inherited coin collection. If someone is not familar with these items, and can be tough to even figure out where to start. We will take as much time as you like to get you familar with everything, explaining everything along the way, as it is our pleasure to do so.
Lastly, it is important to us to ensure that our customers are buying genuine precious metals and not plated or counterfeit items. Over the years, Lincoln Coin and Bullion has invested in costly equipment, such as an Thermo Scientific XRF Analyzer, to authenticate the metal content of coins and bullion. XRF (X-ray fluorescence) is a non-destructive analytical technique used to accurately determine elemental composition within a few seconds. As many others have, we also have a Sigma tester. We also have two ultrasonic thickness gauges. These work on the principle that different metals have significantly different speeds of sound. The ultrasonic tester will ensure uniform material throughout (think a 10 ounce gold bar, or a 1,000 ounce silver bar). Lastly, a simple scale will catch 90% of common counterfeits. Many counterfeits have been detected with the use of all of our equipment (our counterfeit pile gets bigger every year).
