First time visiting a wholesale jewelry and coin store. Pleasantly surprised by two welcoming and knowledgeable people. Albert has 40 years of experience in coins and gold and Jon were very fair in our exchange. I had previously researched the values for the coins I had and was very happy that Albert had given me pretty close to exactly what the current values were that I had found on the internet. Highly recommend this shop for purchases or sales of fine jewelry or gold.read more

Truly do pay the highest for silver coins. I had amassed a large collection over past 20 years. It was my time to part so I could help pay for my daughters college. Albert took great care of me and paid me the highest. Thanks.

IVAN, Algonquin

Had great experience. Really know their stuff about coins. I had a massed large collection over the years and due to recent circumstances I finally had to part ways with all my coins. Albert really helped me out and paid me great. Would recommend him to anyone.

MICHAEL, Crystal Lake

Sold my coin collection to Gold and jewelry direct. Silver and gold graded and raw bullion. The payout was more then other shop offered by 8%  on gold 11% on silver.
