At PGS Gold & Coin we buy, sell, and appraise a wide variety of high-end items. You can find us easily in Dupage and Northwest Cook County at our stores in Wheaton, Schaumburg and Palatine Illinois. We realize that everyone wants to know what their gold and valuables are worth, and we are excited to show you. However, giving a flat quote without evaluating or weighing your valuables would be impossible to do, and not fair to either you or us. Within just minutes of evaluating your valuables, our staff will be able to provide you an exact value of your items and provide an offer for your items. If you would like to see our inventory or do not see the item you would like to purchase, appraise or sell, please call our Palatine (847-348-6447), Wheaton (630-868-3412) or Schaumburg (847-278-7691) locations today.
