Top Dolar Paid since 1980

We Are Your Chicago Coin Buyers

Coins can be a fascinating piece of history and art as well as an investment and hobby, and that is why historically people have collected them. Besides the actual gold and silver values, there are type coins made of copper and nickel that can be just as valuable as gold and silver coins. You can bring one coin or an entire collection in for a free appraisal – top dollar offer to purchase.

You can count on The Chicago Gold Gallery to have the expertise and numismatic knowledge to buy your coins and collections.

We Are Professional Coin Graders

While some coins are simply worth their gold and silver value, many coins are worth far more than just that. Our expert numismatists coin graders and appraisers will grade your coins by their condition. Coins are graded by condition: AG – About Good, G – Good, VG – Very Good, F – Fine, VF – Very Fine, XF – Extra Fine, AU – Almost Uncirculated, then going into various degrees of Uncirculated – MS60, MS63, MS65, MS66, MS70 and Proof.

We use NGC and PCGS coin grading standards to evaluate your coins, currency and collections. Our collector numismatic experts will ensure that you receive the best price for your coins and currency.

We recommend that you do not clean your coins because that devalues them. Bring them in the original condition even if they are tarnished, as our experts can see through that and determine the values and grades. Many times the patina actually adds value to the coins.

We Buy Coins in Any Condition

As Chicago coin buyers, we buy Proof and Mint Sets, Type Coins, U.S. and Foreign Coins, Untied States Gold, Silver and Platinum Coins and Bullion, Canadian Silver and Gold, Eagles, Kruggerands, Maple Leaf, Pandas. Whatever you have, bring them in for a free expert appraisal.

Client Testimonials

Had a Great Experience

I drove all the way from the south side just to sell my silver to Chicago Gold Gallery because of the knowledge and professionalism I received on the phone. They gave me top dollar for my silver and were so fast and friendly. I definitely recommend this business!

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.
