Paying top dollar

for your diamonds since 1980

National Coin Week

Posted on April 24th, 2014 by Joe G

April 20-26 is National Coin Week, and in honor of the occasion The Central States Numismatic Society is offering “The Riverboat Collection” of territorial and private gold coins through Heritage Auctions today.

The collection consists of 63 pieces, many of which are rare and have historical importance, as products of the California Gold Rush, the Southern Gold Rush, and other areas of the west. Sixty-two of those pieces are pioneer gold coins, and one is an 1836 U.S. One Dollar Gold. The pioneer coins are from a variety of private, semi-private and government issues; most issued by private firms.

The most valuable item from “The Riverboat Collection” is a Kellogg $50 gold piece, one of the two finest known to exist. Also included is a Templeton Reid $2 1/2 coin with a AU-50 grade from PCGS.

Do you have coins lying around and want to know what they’re worth? Bring them into Chicago Gold Gallery – we have the numismatic knowledge and expertise to give you top dollar for your gold and silver coins.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

I'll be back

Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.
