Posted on November 28th, 2016 by Joe G

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.

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.
