Coins & Paper Money We are a coin shop so that is our specialty! We buy U.S. or foreign coins and paper, high or low grade. We also offer free appraisals for individuals, inheritances and estates. Gold We buy all forms of gold. The line between gold and money is not well defined. Historically gold was often used as money, but today most gold is used for jewelry purposes. Due to all the economic issues in the last few years gold has gained a lot of attention. Although the price moves up and down everyday, being a traded commodity, generally, the gold price is at a high point these days. Unfortunately, these high prices have created an opportunity for unscrupulous businesses to take advantage of the public. Many fly-by-night stores have popped up all over Chicago offering the "highest prices" (lowest) paid, even some people without stores, just traveling around buying (stealing) gold. The absolute worst hustle is the mail-in gold services. Don't trust your wealth to these places. It's your gold, it's your wealth; you should not lose it because you are converting your gold into cash. Historically, banks are where you would take your gold, silver, etc., but for whatever reason they are no longer in that business, at least not to the general public. Therefore, the local coin shop is the business that is open to the public when it comes to these matters. Everyone claims the meaningless offer of "highest prices". At Oakton Coins & Collectables, we can give you more money because we do a high volume of business. The refinery gives us better prices and we can pass that on to you. Silver We buy all forms of silver. Silver is a metal that holds value, just as gold does. But the majority of gold buyers will not buy silver. A few reasons for this: 1.The testing process is more complicated. 2.The market price for silver tends to move around quicker than gold (either, direction), 3. Refiners do not accept small amounts. (We fill up a couple tubs with scrap silver before we can take it to the refinery.) We also buy most forms of palladium and platinum, stamps, diamonds, art, artifacts, etc… Can I get a loan? We are not a pawn shop, so no loans. No electronics, car radios, furniture, or catalytic converters (that's junk yard stuff). ---------------------------------------- What We Sell In short, we sell stores of wealth. In the current age we have many forms of wealth: electronic stocks, fiat money, land (a deed from a government). All have their place, but when you want real tangible assets, the kind that are really yours, you invest with us. Collector Coins and Supplies We have a wide in-shop selection of varying collector-grade coins and paper money. Stock changes daily from 2000 year old foreign coins, to recent US Mint errors and everything in between. Gold We sell gold for investors who want a store of wealth that is not based on the current fiat banking credit system. The most popular forms are Krugerrands, or American Eagle one ounce coins. But we can get any size or amount you need, usually within 24 hours if not in stock. (An out of stock order will require at least 10% down). Call us to ask about current prices. Silver Similar to gold but less expensive for the same amount. Silver can be purchased in one ounce increments to 100 oz bars. Oddities It's difficult to describe because things we have never thought of come in all the time. Special things we keep for resale. Its worth checking out the shop in person. --------------------------- Contact Oakton Coins & Collectables is centrally located in between downtown Evanston & downtown Skokie, very close to the northside of Chicago. Walking distance from the CTA yellow line Oakton stop, and the 97 CTA bus. Plenty of parking in front and more in back.
