About The Coin Vault
Thank you for celebrating The Coin Vault’s 27th anniversary with us during the month of May. Throughout our 27 years on the air, we have developed a reputation for bringing you quality coins and collectibles at affordable prices and with superior service. Unlike large TV shopping networks, The Coin Vault specializes in providing the best in coins and currency to collectors. Our ultimate goal is your complete satisfaction and we thank you for the opportunity to serve you throughout our first 27 years.
We are excited to announce a new chapter for The Coin Vault! On June 1, 2015 we started airing our very first show live from our brand new custom-built state-of-the-art studio in historic Winchester, Indiana.
We have always been dedicated to bringing you, our trusted viewer, the best experience possible with each and every show we air. Our new studio will allow us to make that experience even better. The move brings the studio closer to all of the action, with our distribution center and support staff now in the same building and our top-of-the-line call center just a few blocks away. We feel this move will benefit everybody involved with The Coin Vault – especially you, our valued collector!

Jim Fisher, Show Host
Minneapolis native Jim Fisher recalls his fascination with numismatics beginning as a young boy sorting thru silver coins. Fast forward over 50-years later and what began as a simple hobby has transformed into a lifelong career. As the newest member of The Coin Vault family, Jim is able to share his many talents and vast expertise, including 52 years of collecting knowledge and 17 years experience hosting live television.
Jim attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia and is a graduate Wichita State in Kansas – class of 1980.
Jim is a self-described sports enthusiast having played college-level football, baseball (and was even offered a contract to play professionally after working as a batboy for the Minnesota Twins) and remains an avid golfer to this day. He was also once an active surfer and horseback rider, but noted that it's been “a few hundred years” since he's been on a board or a horse.
Jim is a lover of classic rock and names Fleetwood Mac, Bob Seger, Grateful Dead and Boz Scaggs as a few of his all time favorites. He also loves bragging on his son James (age 22) who currently plays football for North Dakota State University (Division I National Champions 2014).
When asked what his favorite thing was about working for The Coin Vault, Jim replied “This is going to sound corny … but I so enjoy the people, the environment and my co-workers, but most of all, I just enjoy talking about coins.”
