Our Story

Company Logo

Welcome to YourCoinBox,

Our numismatic story dates back to the 1990s, but the service we offer is groundbreaking.  As an online only firm our overhead is infinitesimal compared to a coin shop.  We are able to pay more than traditional numismatic industry firms because our expenses are so low and our process is incredibly efficient.

We are passionate about the hobby and left careers in long standing numismatic institutions to offer a new option to the public for selling coins.  Everyday we talk to collectors and help them figure out what their coins are worth and offer free appraisals to all that ask.

YourCoinBox is truly a family company, let us tell you about our team:

Travis McDonald (CEO), was raised in the coin business and attended his first American Numismatic Convention in 2002.  He had a storied career in the country’s premier numismatic auction house, Stack’s Bowers Galleries.  Travis started off as an intern stuffing catalogs in mailing envelopes and resigned as Director of Operations after 10 years with the firm to co-found YourCoinBox.

Wyatt McDonald (President), continued the family legacy by working face to face with the coin collecting public in a long-standing coin shop in Charlotte, North Carolina.  A student of numismatics and trained in the ANA Seminar in Denver, Wyatt is the face of YouCoinBox and a true expert.  After spending a decade buying coins over the counter at a coin shop, he knew there had to be a better way, for everyone involved.

Deborah McDonald (Senior Advisor) was introduced to numismatics in 1996 by Ray Merena and Q. David Bowers and retired in 2013. During her 16 years buying and selling coins, Debbie was involved with some of the most historically significant collections ever created. Some of the most memorable were the entire Richard Eliasberg Collection, the Harry W Bass Jr. Collection and The Norweb Collection. She feels that the discovery of the 5th 1913 Nickel by Bowers and Merena was an event she will never forget. She is happy to brag about her sons being in the business with her since their early teens.

Our lifetime in the coin business has earned us the backing of famous coin collectors and numismatic authors.  We found even they have been among the many to crave a better way for collectors to sell their beloved coins.  For the first time YourCoinBox is offering a quick, stress free way to appraise and sell your coins from the comfort of your home. Our goal is to create an ultra-transparent and no pressure experience for finding out what your coins are worth and what to do with them.

Thank you for letting us be a part of your story!
