About Us. For over 50 years, Treasure Hunt has served the Pittsburgh region as the leader in buying and selling gold, silver, and rare coins. In 1963, with the help of his wife, Barbara, John Robert Meredith, founded Coins, Inc. We started in the downtown Gimbels store and then expanded to all 6 Gimbels locations throughout Pittsburgh. After Gimbels closed their doors in 1986, the business moved to Kaufmann’s until 1995, when Mr. Meredith sadly passed away.
It was then that John Robert’s son, John Rotheram Meredith, bought the family business. John Rotheram preferred free standing stores to the department store setting and moved operations to the South Hills under the new name of Treasure Hunt.
Today, under John and his sister Jeannette’s leadership, the company continues to operate with the same core values: honesty, integrity, and exceptional customer service.
Treasure Hunt is conveniently located throughout the greater Pittsburgh area. Each store is managed by members or close friends of the Meredith family. Much of our success comes from displaying transparency in our pricing and eliminating the negotiation process by offering the best price right from the start. As our reputation and customer base grows, so does our ability to offer bigger payouts. Our high-volume buying means we can offer better pricing than smaller dealers, in-home gold parties or the “here-today-gone-tomorrow” companies that set up shop for a weekend. So if you are looking to buy or sell gold, silver, jewelry, coins, or diamonds, stop by a Treasure Hunt near you. Nobody pays you more or treats you better.
Thank you, Pittsburgh, for voting us the best
