The origins of pawn shops

The origins of pawning date back thousands of years and have developed spontaneously in several different parts of the world in parallel. This is because the concept of pawning has a clear need to exist in any monetized society. It is almost impossible to build a business, increase personal wealth or sometimes just furnish your living space without some form of credit.

The pawn loan industry is in fact the original form of credit that can be traced throughout history. In Africa, pawning takes place in various cities and villages and is regulated differently region to region. In the United States, the pawn industry is comprised of pawn shops chains, including Crown Jewelry & Pawn, and is strictly regulated by local law enforcement, municipal, provincial and federal governments.


When you come into our pawn shop, you can rest assured that you will experience our same great service standards combined with the peace of mind that your pawn transactions are properly regulated so your items are safe and protected. Crown Jewelers & Pawn follows the Western history of pawn culture derived from Greek and Roman societies. Both Greece and Rome were filled with various independent pawn shops over the past 3000 years. In fact, Emperor Augustus, who is credited as the founder of the Roman Empire in 27 BCE and served as its first emperor, used a surplus of funds and property that was confiscated from criminals to loan money to citizens who could pledge collateral valued at twice the amount borrowed.
