About Ridge Coin


In 1972, Michael Omeluch opened Ridge Coin & Stamp with $100, some miscellaneous coins—and a dream. What began as an unassuming presence next to a bowling alley on Ridge Road has since become the premier coin, gold and jewelry exchange in the Rochester area.

We opened our second location in Henrietta in 2013. Shortly after, we began construction on a brand-new building for the Henrietta location; we celebrated that Grand Opening in 2016.

Ridge Coin & Jewelry Exchange is the oldest coin and gold exchange in the region. Our staff has a combined 50 years’ experience in the precious metals industry; literally millions of dollars’ worth of coins has passed through our collective hands and we have a firm grasp on fluctuating market values. We’re honored to serve our friends and neighbors in the Rochester community.


We’re not in this business to make a quick buck; we’re here because we have a passion for precious metals, and because the excitement of discovering an item of great value that’s been hidden in the attic for years just never gets old.

We believe in treating every customer with courtesy and respect. Whether it’s your first transaction with us or your 101st, whether you found an old ring or are selling a collection of rare coins, you’ll have our full attention from the moment you walk through our doors. We’ll answer your questions, explain our process, and never pressure you or give you anything but a fair price.


The guys here are wonderful! They are knowledgeable and make you feel comfortable while you are there. Don't bother going anywhere else.”


There are plenty of unscrupulous gold buyers out there. The folks at Ridge Coin are NOT amongst that group. They are kind, courteous, fair, and honest. I've shopped around a little, and I'd never take my business anywhere else!”



We pay the best prices in the area for your gold, silver, coins and jewelry. We’ve been doing this long enough that we know how regular fluctuations in the daily value of precious metals will play out in the long term. We have the tools and technology to accurately evaluate your items, and we have the knowledge and experience to understand what’s valuable, when and to whom. Simply put, we pay the most—guaranteed.


I took some old coins and jewelry to 3 different places to check their value. Ridge Coin offered me the most money for them and paid me cash on the spot. The staff was very knowledgeable and patient answering my questions. Highly recommended. A+”


The staff was very professional and honest. I checked a few shops before coming here; Ridge Coin gave me more than double what I was quoted at the other places. Very satisfied!”



Exclusive X-Ray Technology

We are equipped at both locations with the Niton™ XL2 XRF Precious Metal Analyzer—a technology employed by fewer than 10% of all gold/jewelry exchange shops.

This tool quickly, accurately and non-invasively tests the purity and chemistry of precious metals, providing a nondestructive analysis with near-instantaneous results.

The ability to identify gold plating, counterfeit gold or other trace elements on the spot means we can be absolutely certain of the value of the items we buy and sell. And that confidence translates into better prices for you.
