With a rock solid reputation built on trustworthy service for over 50 years!

Don & Karen Olmstead

Olmstead Currency is owned by Don & Karen Olmstead. We have been in business for nearly 50 YEARS and have a well-developed base of customers throughout the world. We have remained in business by offering fair prices – whether buying or selling.

Olmstead Currency offers this website, plus we set up at shows throughout North America and Europe. We also publish two large lists – one of World Paper Money and another of Canadian Paper Money. Please ask for either or both – they are offered by email or regular mail, as you wish.

This website is updated periodically, about every 3-5 weeks with new listings and deletions of sold items.

To maintain an attractive inventory we must buy steadily so be sure to contact us with any notes or coins you have to sell.  We can always assure you of excellent personal service.
