Edelman's Loan Office is a fourth generation family owned and operated business serving the Philadelphia area continuously since 1926. A loan from Edelman's is a quick and easy way to obtain needed cash. Loans can help you or a customer finance a new purchase, or quickly get needed funds to pay an unexpected bill. All information is held in strictest confidence. Most loans are processed in one day. If you have any questions after reading the information below you can e-mail Mr. Jon Edelman or call our office Tuesday through Saturday between 10:00AM to 5:00PM at (215) 572-6480.


You can use your coins, stamps and paper money as collateral for a loan at Edelman's. For over 85 years Edelman's has been granting loans on collateral. We are licensed, bonded and have operated under the supervision of the Banking Department of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania since 1926.


Loans are made quickly and confidentially, without inquiry regarding credit or income. You can bring in your collection or just send it by registered mail, Federal Express or UPS. For your convenience, an application form is available on our website. As soon as your collateral is received, it will be carefully appraised by our experts. Our staff is qualified to make a fair evaluation, and their appraisal will be the basis of the loan. If you have any information that would help us in our appraisal, you can enclose copies with your collateral. We normally lend about 65% of the collateral's wholesale value. You will continue to retain ownership of your collection while the loan is active. If we grant the amount you requested, our check and loan receipt will be mailed, usually the same day your collection is received. If we are not able to grant the desired amount, we will inform you what we can loan. Your collection will be held pending your approval.


There is no charge for appraisal, handling or storage. If you accept our offer all you pay is the rate set by state law. The interest rate charged is 1.5% to 2% per month depending upon the sum of the loan and the collateral. Some small loans under $2000 are subject to 3% per month. Loans are granted up to $150,000. No charges are deducted in advance. No payments are required for four months. They may be repaid in part or full at any time before the maturity without penalty.
