The American Gold Mine which began business in 1981, has been at 2102 S. Belt Highway since July of 1985. As a business, we did our first pawn loan May 1, 1981, as "The Gold Mine". In 1983 we purchased American Loan & Jewelry, which was located at 514 Edmond. It was June of 1985 when we combined both locations into one at our present address. American Gold Mine has always been a leader in the industry. We fall in the top 10% of the US as far as size and also an actual bank vault for the highest protection of your pawned jewelry and firearms. Come in and see why WE ARE THE 21ST CENTURY PAWN STORE.
