    Well, since you said your feelings are not going to get hurt, all I can say is:

    Honestly, I think you can do better than that. I do like the C and the S but I don't like the font / colors. I tell you what, if you have a few bucks to spend go to this thread https://forums.digitalpoint.com/forums/design.104/ and order a logo there. Or you can have a design contest and choose a logo you like: https://forums.digitalpoint.com/forums/design-contests.94/ I think you'll be very happy when it's all said and done.

    Thank You!

    I really appreciate your review. I will definitely pursue other options. I think that would be very helpful. I don't have much of a track record here yet but I have 100% positive feedback on Ebay and a verified Paypal account that will hopefully give me contest credibility. I think I will post a logo contest and see how that goes. Again thank you so much for your input.

    Best Regards,
    Michael

    Just to back up @qwikad.com - the design is pretty dated and looks like something a programmer would throw together as a placeholder until the design team send the real logo through.

    Looks like a 90's logo.

    Make the writting more contrast to the backgroung. You may have visibility trouble when the logo is small sized. IMHO

    Logo looks good. but a big BUT! No one can say anything without knowledge of your business and competition. In my opinion there is no need to cover full name, Use one or two characters only which present your website and business. Iam not criticizing hope you are getting my point.

    The above mentioned logo is average you can opt for combination logo as you may be aware of the logo types. The type mentioned can better highlight your topic of coin collecting & silver investment. Also improve on color scheme.

    I would use a more brandable name than "Coins and Silver". Your name should be brandable, so that you can establish yourself in the marketplace. If you just use "Coins and Silver", it is impossible to brand and no-one will remember who you are.
