Hello, my name is Joses (rhymes with Moses). Growing up in Hawaii, I started collecting many beautiful things. Having a grandfather that was an avid coin collector and seller, he passing on his love and knowledge of the numismatic world to me. After graduating from S.I.U. twenty+ years ago, a tech job moved me to Chicago. Eventually, my life came full circle leading me back into the coin business that I was taught as a child. Having been a collector my whole life, and have worked in the coin and jewelry buying business for over two decades. Oakton Coins is a lifetime member of many public, private coin dealer organizations, and networks.
