    Niece stole gold and silver coin collection to Pawn Shop for 12K.

    Pawn shop claims it melted them within 30 days even though the coins are more valuable as coins versus a gold bar.

    Pawn shop does not have to give 12K back to rightful owner due to Nevada law which says melted coins do not have to be returned.

    Sounds like there's some difference of opinion on what the coins were actually worth. The owner will have a hard time getting 12k if all the coins are undocumented.

    I hope he had an insurance rider because most standard home owner insurance policies only cover up to $200 for money/coins.

    Doesn't exactly give Pawn Shops much incentive to NOT melt down coins they suspect may be stolen…

    And it sounds like they can just claim they melted down the coins, but don't really have to.
