Selling To A Coin Buyer In Chicago

Posted on July 22nd, 2016 by Joe G

Coins make for a great item to collect, they are fascinating representing a piece of history and art. In fact, coins are typically among the most popular items to collect aside from stamps, cars, wine, art, books, sports memorabilia, watches, guitars and musical instruments and more miscellaneous items as birds, reptiles, insects, action figures, post cards. Coins become more valuable the older they are when the mintages are proven to be scarce after total production numbers are known and since precious metals were used in making older and new issue coins. Coins can come in all different designs, material used like Gold, Platinum, Silver, Palladium, Copper, Nickel, sizes, denominations,or colors, making them fun to collect. Once you decide you’re ready to sell your coin collection, finding a the right coin buyer in Chicago is essential.

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.
