Truman Company’s expertise is worth its weight in gold


Sonny has been Westerling’s faithful companion for many years, bringing a happy energy to the store.

Roger Westerling got into the rare coin and precious metal business when he was only 17-years-old, alongside his Uncle Truman. Today, he has more than 40 years of experience in the field. 

All these years have allowed him to become a knowledgeable source in the trade of gold, silver and platinum, as well as expand his business to incorporate other related services.

Many of The Truman Company's customers are regulars, coming back to Westerling for all of their evaluations, which is unusual in the rare coin business. He says it speaks volumes about his dedication to "doing business the right way and treating people the right way." Many of his clients were treated poorly by other rare coin dealers in the past and now come to him because they know they will get an honest deal. 

With the unstable stock market, hard assets have become increasingly desirable to many people. This has led to more folks coming to The Truman Company's office in Roseville to buy precious metals at affordable prices. 

In addition to buying and selling coins, Westerling and his employees do free appraisals and are willing to travel to homes, banks, or wherever a client needs them in order to assess the individual's coins and precious metal items. The Truman Company will provide an itemized list of each piece and its worth for trade-in, inheritance or insurance replacement purposes.

The Truman Company also has a full-time employee running its eBay business, which brings in coin aficionados from across the nation. And if someone wants to switch their IRA from dollars to precious metals, The Truman Company can do that as well. Employees are happy to walk customers through every step of the process and help with the necessary paperwork.

It is this dedication to great customer service that truly sets The Truman Company apart from other coin dealers. All employees are licensed coin dealers by the state of Minnesota, attesting to their honesty and knowledge of the business. 

Recently, the company acquired a platinum American Eagle coin. Its low mintage rendered it very rare. The Truman Company bought it quickly, taking a deal from the U.S. Mint as they often do. By doing this, they can pass the coins on to customers at a low price and give them the best value possible. Since bullion coins like this often sell out quickly, it also allows collectors a unique opportunity to acquire coins they would not be likely to get otherwise. 

This is just another of many examples of how The Truman Company goes above and beyond to help its customers. With service like that, it is not hard to see why so many people go back to Westerling and his experienced employees time and time again for all their rare coin and precious metal needs.

His integrity and "A+" rating from the Better Business Bureau also make his company a great choice for people interested in starting a coin collection or those who have questions about old coins or precious metals that they have inherited.

Westerling welcomes walk-ins to his business. As an owner who is strongly invested in his company, Westerling is in his office daily to answer visitors' questions, do appraisals, or help with any of the various other services that The Truman Company provides for customers.
