“Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit.”– Baltasar Gracian
Coin dealers require immense knowledge. Just to know where to look for current market prices takes understanding of using a huge number of varied resources. And, like all business ventures, they must exhibit immense courage to go out on their own and earn a living wage.
Most coin business in 2021 is online. It’s less risky and simpler that way. Many brick and mortars have closed their doors, eschewing complications and overhead in favor of doing business online only.
Not Ron Sannes and Vincent Rangone of Palos Verdes Coin Exchange. They have bucked the trend, opening, succeeding, and indeed growing their business at its physical location. Sannes and Rangone do so by harnessing their immense knowledge and by employing their courage. They use their experience to power their self-confidence, harnessing their courage and turning it in to success.
Gracian knew many wise people. And he saw many persecuted and slaughtered for their wisdom in their faith. But he also saw that wisdom not shared was wasted.
Sannes and Rangone use their wisdom and courage to succeed. And we’re so pleased to be an integral part of their success.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Sannes for close to a decade. If you know Sannes the way I know him, you know he personifies courage.
Courage: An Interfanatic Quality
We don’t claim to be courageous, but I guess we must be at least a little. I prefer to think of Interfanatic as encouraging the courageous. We guide them with our wisdom and experience to success. Courage is definitely a part of our everyday life, but just a little bit. We keep going and we do our best to help our courageous clientele thrive.
Palos Verdes Coin Exchange: Wisdom Empowered by Courage
Do you have any idea how complicated it is to price a coin? First, you must authenticate it – difficult in this time of sophisticated and prevalent counterfeits. Then, you must grade it. Difficult to ascertain even for the most seasoned coin graders. Then you must know how to correctly employ a cross-section of coin market exchanges to properly price your coin for a viable sale. As a dealer, you must know the highest amount you can pay and still make money on a sale, and you must price competitively for a quick sale as collectors don’t like stale inventory. And you must have the knowledge to do all of this with confidence, on the fly without any reference but your experience.
That’s exactly what Ron and Vince do daily at PV Coin Exchange. They have earned an excellent reputation as fair dealers from both sellers and buyers.
Palos Verdes Coin Exchange deals daily in both run of the mill coins like common Lincoln cents and Morgan dollars, to rarities both conditional and exquisite. They deal in bulk 90% silver and rare certified gold coins. Their shop in Malaga Cove, near the police station (safe) and wisely positioned at the foot of the Palos Verdes Peninsula ‘Hill’ gives them an excellent place of business for estate inheritors and coin collectors.
Palos Verdes Coin Exchange is also a member in good standing of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce. This gives buyers and sellers confidence in an established business.
“Interfanatic manages PV Coin Exchange‘s Search Ad spend to help them provide a consistently high level of service.”
It’s great fun working with PV Coin Exchange. They’re great at what they do, and the subject matter is interesting. I often find myself enthralled by the history that these little artistic artifacts, these coins, represent.
They asked us to set up some Search Ads to present their business to the locals. It’s working out well. Their reputation is building and they now have a steady stream of regulars that come by the shop to see what’s new. The locals on the Hill now know they have a resource they can trust to get fair prices for their coins when they sell an estate or collection from Palos Verdes.
When business slows down, we increase their ad spend to keep a steady stream of customers. When the shop gets busy, we turn down their spend so they don’t get overwhelmed. All of this ensures they provide a high, consistent level of service.
Also, as we have substantial experience at many levels in the numismatics industry, we often consult for them and discuss business ideas. All in all, it’s a great relationship.
Interfanatic Service Focus: Interfanatic Basic Domain Concierge
So you have a business idea, but you’re not sure how to get a domain. We’re experts in buying, selling and procuring domain names. Sometimes customers ask us to pick up a few domains while they consider their options.
The way it works is, of course ‘.com’ domains are still the most desirable. Also, shorter domain names are more in-demand. As such all four-letter .coms are bought. Most of the five-letters are gone, too. As such, even major businesses are settling for non-.coms or longer domain names.
You can set up a subdomain, xxxx.domainname.com, for free if you have that domain. And of course you can your domain length to help customers find the right part of your website. For instance, we often use get.interfanatic.com to direct people to our Get A Quote page. And that page is interfanatic.com/get-a-quote. It’s intuitive and memorable, making it easy for our customers and search engines to find.
A few years ago, a friend of ours came to us with a business idea. He wasn’t sure exactly which direction he wanted to go, so we picked up a few domains for him. One particularly desirable domain had recently come back on the market, so we swooped in and picked it up for him. We also picked up a couple that were slightly less desirable so if he wanted to sell his best domain for a profit, he had that option.
We’ve also negotiated to purchase already-taken domains for customers. And sometimes, companies want a second domain just for their email addresses. We’ve handled all of that, too. We’ve done all manners of domain dealing for clients in our 20 year history.
So if you’re thinking of a business idea, come to us and we’ll take care of you. We’ll get the best domain for you and handle the renewals. That way, if you ever get a suspicious email, you don’t have to worry about it – we take care of that for you. Our service helps our customers rest easy about their most valuable commodities – their domain names.

Endeavour – she represents the courage to continue. After the Challenger debacle, it would have been easy to pack it in. But NASA didn’t. With the help of good people, they were forced to face their complacency. The shuttle program was forced to ask questions it didn’t want to ask. It was forced to look into things for which it didn’t want to see the answer. It took courage, but ask they did. Answer they did. It wasn’t pleasant. With courage, Endeavour was the result. And with it, the shuttle program continued.
