Bibliophiles familiar with the numismatic literature auction catalogs and other publications of The Money Tree know Myron Xenos. Myron is a longtime collector of numismatic literature who partnered with the late Ken Lowe to publish and deal in literature. A local Cleveland, Ohio area newspaper profiled Myron with a focus on the Money Tree coin business.At The Money Tree, you’ll be assisted by Myron Xenos, who has been in the buying and appraisal business for 45 years. Xenos has been in the same Rocky River location for more than 30 of those years. And in addition to his work at The Money Tree, he also serves as the collectibles auctioneer for Channel 25’s annual May auction.
The Money Tree is a local business, meaning that Xenos works with local dealers when selling items, which is important to Xenos because he believes in making sure every customer gets a fair shake.
“Even the smallest platinum rings are worth something,” Xenos notes. Xenos will examine coin collections and estates, medals, paper money, any jewelry, old watches, sterling silver, platinum and more. Not sure if what you have is valuable? That’s not unusual; Xenos notes that of the countless silver dollars in existence, only some are rare.
What is in demand currently? Two markets that are doing particularly well, Xenos says, are gold and rare coins. After a long period of stagnation, the gold market recently began to boom again, Xenos says. And collectors will pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for some coins.
“The coin market is doing very, very well,” Xenos says.
