SilverTowne History | About Us

Founder: Leon Hendrickson

Rare Coins, Rare PeopleFrom a cigar box under a lunch counter to a multi-million dollar business, SilverTowne has grown from a small coin shop to two retail departments under one roof. In addition to the retail showroom in historical Winchester, Indiana, SilverTowne provides a wide-selection of bullion and coins to collectors and investors nationwide through their website and television show, The Coin Vault.

Founded 75 years ago in 1949 by Leon Hendrickson, SilverTowne is one of the country’s largest and most respected dealers of rare coins, modern coins and precious metals. Leon and his beloved wife Ruhama prided themselves on building a company with a firm foundation of honesty and integrity. Leon always believed a person could be trusted by a handshake.
