KARA & JAMES LUCK/JEFFERSON COIN Founded in 1962 by Mac Luck, Jefferson Coin, was a local collectible coin shop in downtown Charlottesville. Through the years Jim Luck grew his expertise of rare coins and the growing precious metals market. In 1990, Jim and Kara began expanding Jefferson Coin into not only a collectible coin shop, but a local place for people to invest and divest physical gold and silver bullion and coins. Since silver’s infamous spike in the 1980’s, and again in 2011, more and more people are realizing the advantages, and need, to be positioned in physical gold and silver. Seeing the growing demand, Jim and Kara launched JCSGold.com in 2012 to become a national supplier of gold and silver bullion and coins. Currently, Jefferson Coin offers Charlottesville, and the entire U.S., a way to start, grow, or liquidate a position in physical gold and silver.
