Trust worthy, honest, and nice people to work with. I sold some PMs and received a fair and market-based price for them. I would recommend and do business with them again. Five stars.

After reading some reviews I decided this place was the place to go sell my old coins and some jewelry. The staff was very friendly and the money I got for things I was amazed! I highly recommend Oakton coins and collectibles!

I was in here a few days ago to look for some coins for my dad. It’s his birthday in a few weeks and he is a collector.

After having dealt with a variety of Coin and Collectible Dealers over the years, I was skeptical about Oakton Coins and Collectibles. My experience there was excellent. Everything was upfront and was explained as we went through the …

I brought in some old jewelry that was just laying around gathering dust and was given a price that was more than fair. I went to one other pawn shop to see what they would offer and it was well below what Oakton offered me. Will be doing more business with them in the future!

This coin shop is outstanding. They took the time to explain all of the different options with the coins and bullion. The customer service is fantastic. These people are a pleasure to do business with. I never felt any pressure to buy anything. They are extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. Thanks

If you need to sell gold in Chicago this is the best place to go! They helped me get rid of some old and outdated jewelry that I had been carrying around for too long!! It was nice to feel like I was getting some of my money back even after all of this time. I got a check but I think they pay in cash too. Nice little coin shop.

This is place is great, the only place I’ll  trust going with my coins in Chicago. My grandma has been coming here for years and they are always friendly to her and me. It’s in a fine Chicagoland neighborhood but they have to let you in by unlocking the door with a buzzer – it makes you feel safer.

These folks are pros and will give you the best price for your old jewelry. Even the ‘We Buy Gold’ storefronts sell to them. I had a very challenging gold and silver jewelry inheritance and the guys at Oakton Coins really put the time and …More

I had a gold pocket watch, which was over 50 years old, and I really wanted to check its value / sell it, Oakton Coins took the time to research the watch & we ended up negotiating a fair price. I am very satisfied how the deal went. Much friendlier than that place in Morton Grove.

I have sold gold and silver to them 2 times. They are very respectful, honest and more than fair. I have referred co-workers to Oakton Coins & Collectibles. Recently I went with one co-worker during our lunch break and they gave her an extra $20 to pay for our lunch as a thank you for my referral!

Believe the reviews! I went here to get rid of some gold jewelry I didn’t wear anymore and came back with more than I expected. Dealt with Joses. He is knowledgeable, professional, and very easy to talk to. I highly recommend them!

I found my moms jewelry box filled with mostly gold jewelry from 20 years ago. I had not use for it, so I decided to sell it. After doing some online research, I ended up at Oakton Coins. They were so helpful and friendly and I walked out of there with more than $500 cash in the end. I would definitely recommend them.

Excellent experience! I recently inherited a large gold rope chain from my grandfather. Despite being a nice piece of jewelry, it was something that I know I would never wear. So with his blessing, he told me to sell it and get something …

This gold buyer is the most honest person I met in Skokie. I was there to meet family when we decided to sell my gold so I can buy a property but after some search all I could found was lairs who claim to be best gold buyers in chicago but …

They would be my fist and only choice when dealing in coins or precious metals in the Skokie area

These guys are some of the most knowledgeable gold and silver dealers I’ve met. They understand the market and are very fair. These guys stand out compared to some of the other guys and stores.

I took some old pocketwatches to Oakton Coins. Joses examined them and one turned out to be an expensive Railroad Pocketwatch. I decided to sell the other watches but not this one. Joses was very gracious about it. He told me that watch was …
