Premier Local Coin Shop – About The Goldbug Exchange

Gene Snyder, local owner, The Goldbug Exchange


The Goldbug Exchange opened its doors in May 2012 in downtown Beaver, Pennsylvania. Beaver County native Gene Snyder, an original founding partner and now sole owner, opened the local shop with the intention of bringing a higher level of professionalism, trust and security to the precious metals buying and selling arena.

Relationships are key to Gene, a life long Beaver County resident.  Gene has been active in a number of business and service organizations.  He is a past member of  the Beaver area Chamber of Commerce and current member of the Rochester-Beaver Lions Club.  He is a former director of both Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Beaver County and Leaders Serving Beaver County (LSBC).  Gene has worked and consulted with a number of small business ventures in the local area.  He is an alumni of Robert Morris College (1981) and graduate of Hopewell High School (1976). Gene now makes his home in Economy Borough with wife Donna.

Gene’s goal is to promote an atmosphere where everyone is comfortable when they come to his shop to buy, sell or trade gold and silver, and to enhance and develop the reputation of the Goldbug Exchange as Beaver County’s premier coin shop.
