About Coinhuskers

Coinhuskers was founded in 2011 by Dave Peter, a coin and precious metals enthusiast who saw an emerging business opportunity. Initially establishing the company in Pocatello, Idaho, to benefit from the state’s lack of sales tax on gold and silver, Dave ran Coinhuskers as a small but ambitious one-person operation focused on education and building client relationships. After the first year, Coinhuskers relocated across the border to Council Bluffs, Iowa, to continue tax-free precious metal sales through 2012 and 2013.

Sensing the rapid growth of the Omaha metro region as a hub for finance, in April 2014, Coinhuskers moved its headquarters to Omaha, Nebraska, after the state eliminated sales taxes on gold, silver, platinum, and palladium bullion. Dave hired additional staff to match rising local demand and to showcase Coinhuskers’ extensive inventory of coins, bars, and rounds. Now well-established in Omaha but still maintaining its founder’s core values of personalized service and transparent transactions, Coinhuskers specializes in buying and selling precious metals alongside rare currency, jewelry, watches, diamonds, and other valuables.
