Nothing brings people together in the holiday spirit on the Friday before Christmas like piping hot lunch from Olive Garden. As a tribute to two traditions that were subdued this year—Free Lunch Fridays and Christmas company dinner—Rusty and Marie treated me, Maya, with a Christmas-themed Free Lunch Friday as a special treat.Read More
This Wednesday, October 30, 2013, Southgate Coins owner Rusty Goe presented a lecture, “The Carson City Mint’s Legacy – A 100-Year Perspective: 1858-1958” at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).

Every year, Marie gets special treatment on her birthday. This year has been a little different though. Southgate Coins has scaled down some traditional celebrations, and really started to focus on the heart of what we’re celebrating, rather than the show. With just the three of us left (Rusty, Marie, and me, Maya), we work together to honor our friends and coworkers. This year was no different in that respect.Read More
After precious Nicole left us to move to Houston, TX in early July, I (Maya), knew that most likely, I would be the only one left here at Southgate to continue on the tradition of Boss’s Day. Since I started working at the store (in 2007), Boss’s Day has always been one of those “forgotten” celebrations. Rusty and Marie consistently keep track of normal holidays, anniversaries, and birthdays, but Boss’s Day is always a surprise to them when it rolls around every OctoberRead More
In early July 2013, immediately after I (Maya) had returned from maternity leave, Rusty and Marie informed me that we were diving full-on into “eBay, Round 2.” Although I personally have dabbled a little with eBay, mostly when there’s some cheap electrical gizmo I’ve broken that I need to replace, I had not had any experience as an eBay seller. But, I embraced the challenge, learned what Rusty had to teach me, and now I am here, a full 9 weeks later, to tell you about the experience.Read More

For Southgate Coins' owner, Rusty Goe, August has proved to be a very demanding month. After months of preparation, organization, and rehearsal, Rusty Goe delivered three well received lectures, all centering around his expertise—Carson City coins. One lecture was presented over 1,600 miles east of our beloved Reno, Nevada, and the other two (incredibly held only two hours apart from each other), were presented in nearby Carson City, Nevada.

It’s here. It’s the day I (Nicole) say goodbye to Nevada, to Reno, and to Southgate Coins. For almost a year now, I’ve been preparing for my big move to Texas, months have flown by so quickly, with such an overwhelming whirlwind of emotions, I’ve hardly had anytime to stop and catch my breath until now.Read More
Many of you may have been anticipating this announcement any day now, but we are overjoyed to announce that Maya Jones, who has worked with Southgate Coins for over six years now, gave birth to an 8 lb. + baby boy during the early morning hours of Sunday June 2, 2013.Read More
Here at Southgate Coins, the month of May is full of birthdays. We have celebrated Maya’s birthday, Rusty’s birthday, and now Nicole’s! We started this month off by heading up to South Lake Tahoe for an unforgettable birthday dinner for all three May babies at the 18th-floor steakhouse at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe—Friday’s Station. Now, we are finishing the month off with Nicole’s birthday celebration.Read More
After a glorious weekend adventure with Marie and the other girls (Nicole, Emily, and me, Maya), Rusty has returned to the daily grind here at Southgate Coins. But, just because we celebrated his birthday once at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe’s Friday Station steakhouse, does not mean that he won’t be acknowledged on his special day here at the store.Read More
Amidst celebrating a wonderful birthday dinner in Tahoe for three of the five Southgate members this last weekend, Maya’s 25th birthday started off the trio. Read on for more about Maya’s celebratory day at Southgate Coins.Read More
It’s very rare to have your bosses or coworkers honor you at work on your birthday. Maybe, if you’re friends with your coworkers, you might receive a pat on the back, and if you’re lucky, a cupcake. At Southgate, birthdays have always proven to be something special. And, when three out of the five workers at the store all share May birthdays (Rusty – the 21st, Nicole – the 31st, and me, Maya — the 19th), it’s always a wonderful occasion to celebrate.Read More
For over four years now, I (Nicole) have seen many traditions at Southgate Coins. Unfortunately, some traditions have subsided over the years, but others are just as wonderful as I remember they were when I experienced them for the first time years ago. One of these highly-anticipated days is Kentucky Derby Day. With ostentatious hats, fashion-forward attire, and powerful, 1,000+ pound galloping horses that we get to bet on and cheer for, how could you not love the Kentucky Derby?!

As a rare coin dealer operating a retail shop, I come face to face with gold every day. I can’t avoid the precious yellow metal. It’s in my DNA. For more than three decades, I have seen gold’s price rise, fall, rise again, plunge, and move sideways. Hardly a day goes by without me answering the question, “Is gold a good investment?” My standard answer, my long-term position is it all depends.Read More
Some employees come and go, and some stay much longer than others. But when an employee invests over six years at a work place, many things can change and one can experience many of life’s milestones along the way. That is no exception to senior girl, Maya Jones, at Southgate Coins. Over six years, Rusty and Marie, and over the last four years, I (Nicole), have seen Maya start as an itty bitty 18-year-old, and develop into an amazing wife and mother. We are happy to announce another precious addition to Maya’s family.

Southgate Coins’ owners Marie and Rusty Goe find great pleasure in honoring their valuable team members on special occasions. March 7, 2013 marked the celebration of another milestone in the life of Maya Jones, the Goes’ longest-serving employee ever. Maya started working at Southgate Coins on that date in 2007, and Marie and Rusty take turns, in the following tribute, in honoring Maya on her sixth anniversary with the company.Read More
It has been quite some time since we’ve been able to surprise a new girl with a birthday party, and it’s always so much fun when they experience Southgate birthdays for the first time. Today, March 5, 2013, Southgate Coins is honoring our newest employee, Emily, on her 19th birthday. Although she is one of the lucky people who get to have multiple celebrations (since her birthday actually falls on March 6), that doesn’t stop our crew from living it up—she’s been the star around here all day!

Most people cannot project their lives out thirty years from the present day and accurately imagine what life will be like. For those of you old enough to remember thirty years ago, think about it: how much has changed in that timespan? The cars, the technology, the language, the fashion and hairstyles (yikes!), the pace-of-life—everything. For Southgate Coins’ owners, Rusty and Marie Goe, they are proud to say that thirty years after their wedding date on January 22, 1983, they are still happily married, and best friends. That statement is rarer than any coin in the shop.Read More
