Fairfield Rare Coins
Business Contact: James Fairfield
A Fort Wayne Legacy Fairfield’s Rare Coins was started in 1953 by Jim Fairfield, Sr. After returning from military service, he decided to turn his coin-collecting hobby into a business. He started a local coin club and helped found the state organization. In 1969 he acquired Art/Coins, a popular downtown coin store, and the Fairfield’s coin business was born. The jewelry side of the business was added in 1982 after the purchase of a southern Indiana jewelry store’s inventory. It was through this purchase that Fairfield’s unique practice of selling jewelry by weight at a low markup came about. The Fairfield family has a long history in Fort Wayne, having lived here since 1832, so it is no surprise that their family business has become a local landmark. Generations of Trust Fairfield’s is and always has been a family business, founded on a shared passion and commitment to honesty, integrity, and doing the right thing. When you walk into our store, we are more interested in getting to know you and your needs than we are in making a sale. Fairfield’s has been passed down through generations of Fort Wayne families. We’ll make you feel at home. As the jewelry portion of the Fairfield’s business continues to grow, so does our staff of family experts. Jim Jr.’s daughters Jessica and Jacky have recently joined the Fairfield’s team. The youngest generation of Fairfields adds additional services as well as fresh jewelry ideas.
