Appraisals & estimates

You would like to have a coin collection, old paper money, medals or objects made of gold or silver valued, and are looking for an expert in Innsbruck and the surrounding area? Our managing director Alfredo Vitola is a sworn and court-certified expert in Austria. He will therefore provide you with a professional estimate or expert appraisal, which will be recognized by the courts themselves and will give you an idea of the value of your collection. In addition, he can check your coins for authenticity as a court-certified expert.

If, on the other hand, you need an expert appraisal that is recognized by Italian courts, Luca Luciani will be happy to help you. He is a judicial expert in Italy and runs a shop in Via Borgo Pieve 19 in Castelfranco Veneto. In his webshop, numismatists can constantly find interesting coins, which can be conveniently ordered online. Therefore, it is worthwhile to have a look at the shop regularly. Another possibility to buy coins is through our own webshop called AV-Coins.

More about us

Estimates and appraisals – for insurance, courts, collections or purely for personal interest

An expert opinion by a sworn appraisal from Tyrol will protect you in the event of a burglary in your apartment or house, provided you keep your coin collection within your own four walls. Such an opinion is even compulsory for many insurance companies if you want to insure a coin collection against theft. This is an essential component of the insurance contract, as failure to do so may result in the insurance company refusing payment in the event of a break-in. An estimate or expert appraisal is also often required in the event of a divorce or probate proceedings. Equally important is the determination of value in various legal disputes. In principle, however, an estimate is also often made without any particular reason.

An appraisal from Austria will tell you how much your coins, medals or jewelry and other objects made of gold or silver are worth. If you subsequently decide to sell your collection or individual items, you can place an order with us for a professional auction. Our auctions take place in a hall and on the Internet simultaneously, so that your coins are seen by a large number of interested parties. We also purchase coins directly. If you choose this option, you will immediately receive cash or an immediate bank transfer from us. Whether a coin auction or a sale is more lucrative for you depends on your coins. We will be happy to advise you during a detailed personal or telephone conversation.


Our clients – private individuals, notaries, lawyers, estate administrators and courts

A valuation of gold or silver jewelry can usually be made within a short period of time. An estimation of old coins, orders and medals by a court-sworn expert, on the other hand, is usually somewhat more expensive and involves a correspondingly longer period of time. However, we will inform you about this in advance. As specialists in the field of coins, we accept orders from private individuals, as well as from notaries, lawyers, estate administrators and courts. We possess many years of experience in all areas. In addition, we are member of the Austrian Coin Dealers Association, the Florida United Numismatists, Inc. and the American Numismatic Association. With us, your coins, medals and items made of gold or silver are therefore in the best and most specialized hands.
