Meet The Owners

Kevin started collecting at age 8 when his grandfather gave him an indian head penny. He was immediately taken with the hobby. Every week for his paper route he was paid 55 cents consisting of a walking liberty half and a buffalo nickel which he added to his collection. He was well known in the banks of Bellevue,OH for coming in for rolls of coins that he would search to fill up his books. He continued collecting throughout his life and when he was 48 he opened the first harbor coin in Winthrop Harbor, IL with his son, Brian. The business flourished and In 2011, wanting to expand and bring more family into the business, he opened the second location in Gurnee, IL. Harbor Coin is truly family run with all 3 of Kevin's children and his wife, Sheila, running the 2 stores with him.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed! You have five days after receiving your package to notify us that you are returning your purchase and to ship it back. We will refund you the full value of the coin minus any shipping/insurance fee we incurred in sending the item to you.
