My name is Justin Roth, owner of the Green River Bullion and Coin store. Here’s my story and why I opened my store.
When I was in high school, one of the staff members, Joe Coggon introduced me to Error and Variety coins. I was instantly hooked and could not get enough! Error and variety coins are coins that have mistakes on them not meant to be there in the original minting process. Some of them are extremely rare and can bring thousands of dollars while others are more common and sell for significantly less. When, I started all I knew were these types of coins and I did not know anything about gold, silver, and bullion.
About 10 years ago I was introduced to a few dealers who I started working with at coin shows and in their coin-stores learning the ins and outs of the business. 5 years ago, it hit me that I wanted to open a store and be a full-time coin dealer. I have been working my tail off for the last 5 years figuring out exactly what I needed to do. A key factor to having a successful coin store is having reasonable overhead costs.
For the last 5 years, I was traveling around the country attending different coin shows working with dealers and on my own to get that experience. I built up enough knowledge of the business that I felt I was ready for a coin store. Up until 2 years ago my wife, Mariah, and I had lived in Oregon our whole lives and we made the move to Green River, Wyoming. I started attending the gun shows around Wyoming selling my stuff. It became clear to me after doing my second show locally at the fairgrounds in Rock Springs, that there was a definite need and a want for a coin store here in the area. The closest stores are about 3 hours away in any direction with a few of them being in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been told by many of my customers that they did not feel safe traveling to SLC to buy precious metals.
Mariah, Joe, and I started looking immediately for a storefront. After a few days of searching, we found an open storefront right downtown on Flaming Gorge. I was skeptical and thought the price would be outrageous being right on Main Street. To my surprise, it was very reasonable, and we signed a one-year lease on the spot! Thus, Green River Bullion & Coins was born as an official store! It opened to the public on February 6th, 2021, and I have not looked back since. It has been a great experience so far and we have an amazing community here. I get one new customer coming in every single day and I look forward to more. I plan on being here to serve everyone for the next 30 to 40 years!
Services that I offer are: buying and selling all precious metals including silver, gold, platinum, jewelry, currency, and all foreign coins and currencies. I also do appraisals on coin collections and offer appointments on closed days if needed. I offer shipping all over the country and some foreign countries.
I am located at 132 E Flaming Gorge Way, Green River, WY 82935. My business phone number is (307)875-3705. I can be found on Facebook at Green River Bullion & Coins as well as on Instagram under green_river_bullion_and_coins.
