Serious About Coin Collecting? You Need a Pocket Scale

Many people hate to see the number on the scale, but coin collectors know better. If you have a coin collection, you know that a coin scale is a great way to verify the authenticity of the coins you are selling and buying.

Even if you’ve had experience with coin scales in the past, you still might be impressed with some of the modern options. For example, pocket scales are called so called because they literally fit in your pocket—most are about the size of a checkbook.

Other features to look for:
  • Easy to read LCD display
  • Elegant stainless steel surface
  • Modes to measure ounces, grams, carat, grain, and taring
  • A wide scale of measurement from 0.01 of a gram to 100 grams or more
Plus, if you’re interested in splitting the expense or just sharing the love, pocket scales are great for a number of other uses, like weighing gemstones or even calculating postage price.

That being said, pocket scales are extremely affordable at coin collecting supply websites like One popular model, the 250 gram pocket scale from American Weight, is only $22.02.
