Our Story

In 1979, Dick (RJ) Buchanan left his successful masonry business to open RJ Coins

on Washington Street in Salem, turning his long-time coin collecting hobby into a career. Over the years, estate jewelry, watches, and watch battery replacement were added eventually becoming RJ Coins & Jewelry and moving to our current location on Pickering Wharf. Dick’s honesty and respect for his customers cultivated a loyal customer base which has grown to include the second and third generation customers we see regularly.  In 2012, Dick sold the store to his son Rick, a second generation RJ!

Still Growing

Today, RJ Coins & Jewelry is a full-service jewelry store with new lines of beautiful gold, platinum, and sterling jewelry; exquisite engagement and wedding rings; fashion jewelry; and expert jewelry repair in addition to our original products and services. What hasn’t changed is our long-term commitment to integrity, value, and friendly service.

Proud Salem Merchant
