    Tips For Selling To Coin Buyers In Chicago

    Posted on November 28th, 2016 by JoeG

    Coin collections are considered valuable to the collector. It takes years even decades to create complete coin collection. Collections, no matter what type, often will have a sentimental value to its owner who has spent a very long time adding to it, or may have had it handed down from a relative or loved one. When the time comes and a collector or a recipient of a coin collection is ready to sell their coin collection, it is important that they sell to expert coin buyers in Chicago. If you are ready to sell your coin collection, read through these tips before selling.

    Know The Value of Your Coins

    All too often, people overvalue most of their coins, they may see an example on the web that is an extremely rare mint mark and low mintage and may think that because their coin may have the same date they do not realize the mont mark is different on the more valuable coin.. Besides the actual gold and silver values, there are types of coin made of copper and nickel that can be just as valuable as gold and silver coins. When you bring your collection to coin buyers in Chicago, bring your whole collection – even those you do not think are valuable. A professional coin buyer like Chicago Gold Gallery has the expertise and numismatic knowledge to buy all your coins and collections at the best available price.

    Local Coin Buyers

    The best place to sell your coin collection is to local coin buyers in Chicago. Doing business at a local shop is convenient, you have a chance to meet with the dealer face to face, and conclude the transaction on the spot. The most beneficial aspect of selling to a local coin buyer is not only being able to evaluate their expertise, but also being able to be compensated for your items that day. At Chicago Gold Gallery, our team of expert coin buyers in Chicago, have been buying coins since 1980. We use NGC and PCGS coin grading standards to evaluate your coins, currency, and collections. Our numismatic experts will ensure that you receive the best price for your coins and currency.

    Best Practices

    We recommend that you do not clean your coins before bringing your collection to coin buyers in Chicago. Cleaning your coins can and will devalue them. Bring all of your coins in their original condition even if they are tarnished,or “dirty looking” to you, and our team of experts will be able to see through that and determine the values and grades.

    Can't say enough about this place.

    This is the most welcoming, non-pretentious place to do business! I was researching where to sell sterling silver I had and ended up choosing here based on the other great reviews. They walked me through the whole process and answered my questions. I got a great price for my items & will go there again.

    Love this place!

    Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

    I would do business with them again

    I had a large collection of silver coins sitting in my safe deposit box for 15+ years. Chrissy was so friendly and helpful she even gave me advice about coins I didn't know. She was more than happy to help me for over an hour in between taking care of other customers. They really did give me top dollar for my coins. Whether you are new or a pro with coins, I can highly recommend you take them here!

    Don't Hesitate to call...

    I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
