AAA Jewelry, Coin & Collectibles is a family-owned and operated company based out of Wayzata, MN. Dealing in a broad array of items and services, this small shop is unlike many you’ll come across today. The doors have only been open since April 2016 but their story goes back much further.
Dusty Beam (middle left) was a pioneer of the “traveling buyer” trade during the mid 1980s. As a youth he developed a strong passion for collecting and trading just about anything that he could and eventually shaped his personal interests into a business model. 30 years later he’s still a kid at heart, but now possesses a vast knowledge of the otherwise obscure.
Fast forward a number of years, his eldest son, Ryan (middle right), and next eldest son, Jake (far left) began working for the now family business. The timing couldn’t have been better as the gold/silver markets skyrocketed, reaching heights not seen since the early 1980s. This new “gold rush” produced an immense amount of items for evaluation and sale from 2010 to 2013 which attributed to the knowledgeable core of AAA.
At the store’s inception, youngest daughter Holly (far right) joined the business, bringing with her a constant over watch to the operation. Through strong family values, a wide knowledge base and love of the American dream, AAA Jewelry, Coin & Collectibles is a company worth getting to know.
