the Penny

Established in 2006, Pennies, Pounds & Pesos is the lifetime dream of owners George and Donna Mavrelos.  With over fifty years of experience as a passionate numismatist, George brings the feel of an old time coin shoppe to Media, Pennsylvania.  His collecting has left him with a deep appreciation of coins and medals from all over the world.  George is a longtime member of the American Numismatic Association and he is a President Emeritus of the West Chester Coin Club.

  Donna, also a member of the West Chester Coin Club, spends the majority of her time in the A.P. DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware where she is the Manager of Steril Processing. However, on Saturday you can find her taking care of business in the shoppe.

  Come visit us in our "Victorian" Shoppe and enjoy a trip back in time!

Features in This website

  The Pennies, Pounds & Pesos website has been recently been updated.  Be sure to check out some of our latest features. 

  First, there's Donna's Specials.  This is a page where Donna will periodically post new or little know numismatic items that she would like to bring to your attention.  Some of them may be new items that have just arrived at the shoppe, while others may have been known for a while, but she feels that they have not received the attention they deserve.

  Then there's Wanted!  This is a page where George is listing a few hard to find items that he is looking for.  Since he has not been able to find some of these, he is looking for your help.  If you have any of these, and are considering parting with them, please give him a call.  You may be pleasantly surprised at how much he will offer you for them! 

  Check back with us often so you can keep up with changes to both of these feature pages.  You'll also want to watch for other new features that may be added to our website at any time!
