My father passed away five years ago and left some gold and silver coins to my two half-siblings and I. They were once valued at approx. $25,000. For the last five years they've sat in my half-brother's safe deposit box.
Now that the price of gold is rising, I was thinking of selling my third of the coins. My two half-siblings, however, do not want to sell their coins. Are there any options for dividing the coins amongst the three of us without selling them all, since only I want to sell them? Any advice on what I should do?
(And, as an aside, does anyone have any recommendations of appraisers in the Washington, D.C. metro area?)
Thank you so much.
