"I am delighted I stumbled onto your store. I hope you continue stocking such a wide variety since you always have something I want at proper prices. Keep it up."
-Jim Rogers, Financial Guru www.jimrogers.com & Wikipedia
Their prices are fair, particularly considering the cost of doing business in NY. No high pressure. They don't sell junk in holders, nice coins. You get what you pay for. Repeat customer. -Mike I. (8/2016, Yelp)
I had the amazing privilege to do business with these gentlemen at Brigandi. The prices are reasonable and a must stop for baseball fans and political junkies alike. As for coin collectors like myself, they gave me reasonable cash for my morgan dollar collection. Top notch customer service.
-Michael M. (7/2016, Yelp)
Although I did not sell the coins I had brought in for appraisal the service they provided was on point. This gentleman Justin was really polite and provided me with knowledge about said coins I had not even known with all the online research. His father came in and took the time to look at my small collection and even gave a better price than I had thought in the first place.
I will DEFINITELY be coming back here in the future if I have any coins merely because they were so nice. Anyone that comes into a dealership that has been around over 50 years in NYC deserves the respect that is due, anything else is disrespectful to them and to the industry.
-Dubi L. (11/2015, Yelp)
Excellent selection of coins. They give you space to browse and are very helpful when i needed assistance. They even discounted the coin i bought without me asking based on the spot silver price. Very honest. The prices are very reasonable. I would definitely recommend them.
-Cedric C. (2014, Yelp)
I had a really good and unique experience at Brigandi this week. I had a bunch of old sliver coins to sell. As is typical at gold, silver and coin dealers, Justin asked what I was hoping to get for the items. To the uninitiated, this might not seem like a fair question, but it is as experience will prove. So I was actually told that my asking price was too low, and they could do better than that.
I found these guys to be fair, not pushy and I got the best offer price I found that day. I asked a lot of questions how they do their pricing, and got transparent answers. They also enjoy talking about numismatics (and sports memorabilia) and take their time in a low pressure transaction.
It's good to remember that there are two parties involved in a transaction. Of course there are dealers who are pushy and not trustworthy, but again there are customers I've seen who are rude, entitled, and expect that these types of businesses are simply ATMs who just give away money.
Mr Brigandi has been around a long time. I enjoyed talking to John as well. I'd go back.
-Scott J. (7/2014)
Incredible customer service from this business. I had purchased a product from another website and it was not complete. When I called Brigandi, John immediately made the situation right and shipped the rest of the product the same day! AMAZING customer service. I am definitely shopping here again!
-Chris C. (12/2014, Yelp)
The pictures are fantastic as anticipated and whenever we’re looking to add to our man cave (undoubtedly one day) with memorabilia you will no doubt be the person I call.
Thanks again Chris and you guys run a terrific business. It truly is a pleasure to do business with Brigandi. You make it easy.
-Bill C. (4/2015)
You guys are great to deal with. I think this will be the 10th and 11th pictures we bought thru Brigandi.
This is a great place. The first thing you'll notice is the circular layout of the store. The unique way the store is set up makes it easy to see all the fantastic sports memorabilia and collectible coins and currency for sale. They have a wide variety of both vintage and modern sports memorabilia at the best prices I've seen.
The staff is also very friendly. The first time I went into the store, I was immediately greeted by the store's owner, and offered assistance to find what I was looking for. Every time I've gone into the store, the staff is always eager to share its knowledge and insight into the sports memorabilia business, and have lots of interesting facts about the various items they sell.
Whether you're a tourist just visiting NYC or a serious collector of sports memorabilia, this is definitely a place to check out.
-Joe Hiraoka (9/2014)
Thanks so much for your great customer service, and follow through.
The Pele jersey turned out great, and my wife loved it. The case turned out to be perfect as well. Can’t wait to get it on the wall. Thanks again for the support, and your sense of urgency.
Thank you again for your kindness. I came to your store in June to purchase a six pence coin and told you that I had previously bought one but my mother had accidentally used it. I was therefore back to buy another for my wedding. You sweetly gifted it to me.
It truly made my coin so special and I felt so lucky to walk down the aisle with it. I can’t express how touched I was. I now have a special story to tell when I pass down my coin to my future children.
Thank you for bring me luck and happiness on my special day.
After doing some online research, and reading some horror-stories about bad coin dealer experiences, I was a bit apprehensive about authenticating and selling some of my coins, given that I'm a relative novice to the field. After doing some shopping around, I tried out Brigandi Coins. I was greeted by Justin after spending a little time browsing their collection & sports memorabilia, and he worked with me to assess and price my bullion and coins. He was not pushy at all, and very relaxed. He gave me fair answers about what I had, & answered all my beginners' questions without any condescension. His quotes -- and those given to me by Robert -- were in line with the research I had already done, and with what I hoped to get. I sold what made sense to sell that afternoon & left a satisfied customer.
Brigandi Coins made this whole process a breeze, and I felt comfortable enough with them to return not long after my first visit to sell some more pieces. I encourage anyone in the area to give these folks a try if you need to have coins evaluated and sold.
-Chris (8/2014, Yelp)
As usual, This week, I walked out of Brigandi’s with a piece of quality memorabilia. Tell John, thank you.
This week, I bought a 1964 Cubs Team ball, and after 20 years of shopping at Brigandi, I never feel like I’ve made made bad deal. Make sure to tell John. I’ve bought from him year years ago.
I remember people standing in front of your store saying, “these are priced too high.” But I knew…after buying lots of T206 NM-M condition cards, that he always sold me a quality piece. And in the end, years later, I can resell it for a high profit.
-Matt M. (8/2014)
I bought a $10 gold coin from the shop in the month of November. They were very professional and worked with me to give me the lowest price on the item. A pleasure to work with and I plan to buy other coins from them in the future!
-George B. (12/2013 Yelp)
I recently bought an expensive American 1/2 cent coin from Brigandi Coins online. I could not be more pleased with the purchase. It's condition was EXACTLY as depicted on their site. A sales person by the name of Jonathan corresponded with me and was most helpful negotiating price. I also had an immediacy request relative to delivery time and they went way, way out of their way to accommodate my need with no additional charge(s). I was singularly impressed with his professionalism, concern, and the individual caring attention given to me. I would recommend anyone considering purchasing coins and/or collectible items online to consider them FIRST! Thank you so very much!
-George Valko Parrish, FL (10/2013 Yelp)
I came in to the store about 8 weeks ago with some questions about some sports memorabilia that I had and some old coins that I was interested in selling. Not only were the sales people (Robert and John) honest with me about the value of my items and the potential future value of my items, they provided me with a wealth of knowledge of the industry and my particular items. They were all friendly and not simply looking to make a sale or make me a bottom-dollar offer. Their baseball knowledge is off the charts btw.
I ended up coming back, after researching some things on my own and trying to get a better deal at other shops, and sold my items to Brigandi's. They provided me with the best value of all places that I shopped around.
Since then, I have placed several orders with them for some older sports memorabilia as gifts for the upcoming holidays. Since I didn't know exactly what to get for my father and brothers, I provided them with some information about which teams and players they liked, and the sales guy (Chris) was able to work with my budget to narrow down the search (they have memorabilia for every type of price range). Ultimately, we found some pretty unique pieces that will make great gifts.
Now I find myself checking out new items on their website and facebook. I stop in at least once a week now, on my lunch breaks, just to see the new items in the store. I highly recommend this shop.
I have been to Brigandi Coins & Collectibles many times over the past few years and there really is no other place like it in NYC! They have an incredible selection of premium sports collectibles and autographs. Even if you don't buy anything on your first visit, it's a lot of fun to just look!
-Eric M. (11/2013, Yelp)
I love Brigandi! What more can you say. I worry about getting ripped off by people on eBay but I assure you Brigandi refunded my money immediately. About 10 minutes after I saw that they received my return, every cent was returned to me. They stayed in touch with me throughout the process and I was never at any time worried. Thank you Brigandi for being a 5 star organization!
-James N. (9/2013 Yelp)
I bought a $500 bill from this shop and felt that the customer service was good and the selection of memorabilia, coins and currently was excellent. Very clean and organized shop and a reputable business.
-Drew F. (Yelp Review, 8/2013)
I have been buying high end baseball memorabilia since 1996. They have top quality, authenticated products that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else. The store has been open since the 1950’s and they really know their stuff. They can also give you honest opinions on coins. The whole team there are knowledgeable, highly recommend a visit.
John, I just framed the Williams piece I purchased from you. It is absolutely gorgeous. I want to thank you for your absolute professionalism and courtesy. I am always in the market for baseballs with with unusual inscriptions. Please keep me in mind. All the best.
“Only 1 question. How can we get more people on earth to do business like you and be as professional and pay attention to customer service like you do? Thanks for everything.”
Chris Brigandi and team are top quality honest people. I have now had 3 business transactions with them, and after shopping price comparisons elsewhere, I found Brigandi to be not only the most competitive but also to be great people to do business with. It’s not very often these days that you get personal interaction, especially with the business owner. They do care about you, and that is why they do well. They’ve made a lifetime fan out of me!
-Rick C. – Walnut Creek, CA (6/2013)
It is truly tough to find people that are both knowledgeable and passionate about what they do. Brigandi Coin & Collectibles is fair with their prices and backs it with outstanding customer service. I have been in the store a few times and had online dealings with them as well. Either way, they have gone above and beyond my expectations. If you are in the city, I suggest you stop in and take a look around!
Very good products and very nice people. Overall great experience here. Definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for rare and valuable sports memorabilia and coins.
Recently, I successfully sold a piece of Yankees sports memorabilia with the help of Brigandi Coin and Collectibles. Brigandi Coin and Collectibles provided superb customer service and professionalism. Their knowledgeable staff helped me to understand the history and true value of my item. Throughout the process, Brigandi Coin and Collectibles employees consistently provided me with updates on the status of my sale, and worked hard to ensure I received the best possible price. Overall, my experience was excellent, and I would highly recommend their services.

Deep Subject Matter Expertise and Personalized Service.I have been a client of Brigandi Coin for several years. As a collector of vintage baseball memorabilia I value a focus on quality and expert opinions on purchases. I get both from Brigandi Coin, specifically from John Brigandi. If you are looking to build a collection from scratch or to fine tune your existing collection, Brigandi is a good place to go.
– AV (2012)
I am a long time collector of coins, Nothing special or out of the norm, but its a hobby that I enjoy. I primarily shop at Brigandis because the merchandise is amazing, The quality you get from them is far superior to the other stores I have been to. The prices were fair and I always know I am getting a high quality genuine coin, even if its not the 85 proof Morgan!
-Frederick M. (1/2012 Yelp)
A great find! I walked in this store one day looking for a 1985 gold panda. They had one and I asked if I could trade it for my 2008 gold panda. The 1985 is more desirable and more expensive, but the owner happily traded it with me straight up. I have been buying gold and silver from them ever since. I will definitely be coming back again and again.
I can’t say enough good things about the Brigandi Coin shop and the people that work there. In my experience they have always been polite, knowledgeable, and honest (yes honest). The selection of coins and memorabilia is remarkable, the best I’ve seen. More importantly, this is the only coin dealership I have ever been to where I have never had a problem with the people there and did not feel like someone was trying to rip me off. In fact there have been times when I have gone there with a price in mind for a coin(s) and the price they asked was below what I had in mind. I have always gotten the feeling that they are more about cultivating relationships with customer rather than getting your money, which is exactly what I look for, but have rarely found. Great place!

I had a wonderful experience with Brigandi's. I originally found Brigandi's off the US Mint's website listed as a dealer when I was shopping around for gold. I later stopped by and found them courteous, polite, and priced very fairly. They were not only priced very fairly, but they had the highest "buy-back" price that I could find. I found buying gold very easy and affordable. Additionally they had no commission fees like I was finding online and I was able to pick them up in person so I didn't have to pay any shipping charges. I give them 5 stars for a great staff and great prices!
Friendly people, OUTSTANDING autographs, and great place. The owner is a great person and has helped me grow my collection over the past few months. I look forward to working with them more. You will too!
– R.S. (Google Review, 2012)
I recently needed a case to put a collector coin in, it is very rare to find anyone selling anything coin related in manhattan!! I finally came across Brigandi Coin Co. (referred from a hobby shop) near Bryant Park. Not only did they have empty coin cases, they went through the trouble of finding one that was the perfect fit for my coin and then gave it to me at no cost! Their kindness and generosity was above the par. I would absolutely recommend this business to anyone in the market for coins or memorabilia no doubt you will be treated with respect and professionalism.
-John D. (7/2011 Yelp)
I stopped by the store to sell some 1960s baseball cards. I had been trying to sell them for some time and had got a numbert of offers. John was extremely knowledgable and offered to take them off my hands for a fair price. In contrast to dealing with the sleaze on craigslist, selling to him was just a pleasure. The store was also very nice and loaded with high end collectibles. If you are looking to pick up quality vintage baseball cards in Manhattan, this is the place I would go to.
– Zach (Google Review, 2011)
I was looking for a gift at this store and was intrigued by both the coins and currency collection as wells as the sports memorabilia. It was really enjoyable browsing through their signed vintage and modern baseball memorabilia. There was one signed by Babe Ruth selling for $35,000!
Although I could have just worn a sign on my forehead that says “just browsing”, the proprietors (somehow it’s I find the term “sales staff” not as appropriate) were friendly,polite and answered my questions. I didn’t get to buy anything from them but I did get to discover some great items they are carrying and walked out of the store happy. After all, “there is no crying in baseball.”
– LG (1/2011)
Thank you for handling my vintage card collection professionally. It was a relief knowing I could trust someone to get the best price for it. It was exciting watching my collection get bid on and ultimately go higher than I ever thought. I would recommend anyone seeking to sell a collection to meet with John Brigandi; his industry knowledge is first class.

Thank you for your assistance with my father’s coins. I sincerely appreciate the service, explanations and honesty shown me during my two recent visits to your business. You and your son were friendly, warm, and very patient with someone who really doesn’t know much about coin collecting. Again I say thank you!!
Since I first walked in their store to sell my long neglected scattershot coin collection, the staff was very helpful and informative. I have returned many times after that to rebuild a proper coin collection and have learned much from them in addition to getting great deals on some really superb specimens. Makes me keep coming back for more, now that I’ve gotten a push in the right direction – great stuff and thanks very much for making coin collection an enjoyable experience for me again!
I visited Brigandi to sell a Krugerrand which is a very standardised gold transaction, so there's little room the personal touch or good offers, however I sent a few emails before hand which were personally replied to, and I was given directions on request. At the shop, which was very pleasant, I was politely greeted and offered a price that was competitive with bullion merchants, even ones that are purely online so no markup for being practically on Times Square. With some mandatory paperwork, the transaction was completed in a few minutes. I don't think they could have done anything better.
-Andrew M. (5/2013 Yelp)I've had some transactions with Brigandi Coin and the people were fair and polite and very knowledgeable. I would send anyone who is looking for vintage sports memorabilia or coins to go and see them. Go browse and see the collection there.
