Hillsboro is the largest city in Oregon’s Washington county and the fifth largest metropolis in the state. The city was founded on the site of former tribal lands of various branches of the Kalapuya in 1842 and is named after state politician David Hill. Originally called Hillsborough, the name was later shortened for simplicity’s sake. The town has a thriving tech sector and also hosts a number of grape farms and wineries. Although the area is settled and modern now, the echoes of the pioneer days can still be heard in the region by those listening closely, and the desire for the gold and silver that fueled much of America’s westward expansion is still very much alive.

This Beaverton area shop offers a truly unusual experience – a combined coin dealer and haircut parlor. Although this may sound gimmicky to some, the shop is legitimate. In addition to old-style straight razor haircuts, the store offers a line of gold and silver bullion and numismatic coins, both graded and ungraded. The store specializes in U.S. currency, like the Mercury Dime. They also purchase both coins and precious metal jewelry.

A Beaverton-based pawn shop, A Cut Above Pawn is the town’s oldest continually-operating pawn shop with over 15 years in the area. Like most pawn shops, they offer loans and purchasing on a variety of products, and then resell those products to consumers. Coins, both numismatic and bullion, are among the items they trade in. Their stock rotates quickly as it is a used shop, meaning that the selection will be uneven but also that regular shoppers might find a hidden treasure if they are persistent and motivated.
