At PGS, we specialize in appraising coins.  Coins are our passion!  Bring your collection in today for an honest and accurate appraisal!

Collecting coins is a time-honored hobby that is both fun and profitable.  PGS Gold & Coin is a certified coin dealer and coin buyer that buys and sells all types of coins including U.S. coins, foreign coins, rare coins, and gold and silver coins.  We are one of the most trusted coin shops in the Chicago area and we have developed an easy way for you to sell your coin collections for cash, or purchase coins to add to your collection.  Our procurement department is always actively pursuing new coins and currency from our vast supplier base to add to our website, so check often for new products.  Whether you are looking to expand your coin collection or invest in precious metals, our professional coin buyers are ready to serve your needs.

Coin collectors are generally interested in coins that were in circulation for a limited time, coins with mint errors, and historically significant coins.  Coin collecting is not the same as numismatics which is the study of currency and its uses.

The value of coins is based on supply and demand which means it is cyclical like other commodities such as precious metals and stamps.  A coin that is not in long-term demand experiences a drop in price while coins with a higher perceived or intrinsic value get a much higher price.  Coin collectors invest money in coins that they believe will increase in value over time.  The condition of the coin itself has a major impact on its value as high quality coins are worth much more than the same coin in poorer quality.

PGS Gold & Coin is the premier coin buyer in the Chicago suburbs.  Our team has long been trusted by collectors to give accurate appraisals for coins including gold and silver coins, rare coins, historic U.S. coins, and foreign coins.  We will evaluate your coin collection on the spot and offer you a fair price based on the current market demands.  We are excited to tell you how much your coin collection is worth, and we will answer any questions you have about the value of your coins and the current market.
