Houston, TX, April 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Coins & Jewelry, Houston’s leader for rare coins, gold and silver bullion, fine jewelry and sought-after sports memorabilia, is celebrating the 100th anniversary of National Coin Week (April 21-27) with a citywide treasure hunt, celebrity appearances and exclusive displays of rare coins and memorabilia.

U.S. Coins will host a Houston “Treasure Hunt” during National Coin Week, with rare vintage coins hidden at five locally-owned businesses.

The first five customers at each store who use the password “Numismatics” will receive a rare vintage coin valued between $80-120. Coin recipients will be eligible to enter a grand prize drawing at U.S. Coins and Jewelry (8435 Katy Fwy) on Saturday, April 27, where approximately $10,000 worth of gold and silver coins will be awarded. 

“Coin collecting is a timeless hobby with an endless amount of fun to be had,” U.S. Coins & Jewelry co-owner Kenny Duncan Jr. said. “We’re so excited to introduce the hobby to more Houstonians while partnering with local businesses for our treasure hunt. And I can’t wait to have some of our favorite athletes at U.S. Coins as we welcome people through our doors.”

Several sports legends will appear at the store during National Coin Week for autograph signings, led by three-time Super Bowl champion offensive lineman Nick Allegretti of the Washington Commanders – an avid coin collector and official U.S. Coins brand ambassador.
