BUYING ALL FORMS OF GOLD – OAKTON COINS & COLLECTIBLES

We Buy All Forms of Gold

Gold can exist in many forms, and we buy it all. We are one of the Chicago area’s foremost gold dealers.


Buying and Selling Gold Bullion

Gold bullion is officially recognized as being at least 90% to 99.9% pure and is usually in the form of coins, bars, or ingots. We have the expertise, connections, and assets to handle any size of gold bullion transaction. 

We regularly buy the following types of gold bullion materials:

  • Canadian Gold Maple Leafs
  • South African Gold Krugerrand
  • Chinese Gold and Silver Pandas
  • American Gold Eagles
  • American Gold Buffalos
  • U.S. First Spouse coins
  • Australian gold nuggets
  • Other bullion coins
  • Certified and uncertified bullion/coins

We Buy All Types of Gold Jewelry

We have the experience to understand and price all types of gold jewelry, in any purity. Whatever it is—9K, 10K, 14K, 18K, 22K, 24K, or anything in between, we have the right testing equipment (x-ray and acid) and can therefore offer the highest price. Gold jewelry is not usually pure gold; it is an alloy, or a mixture of metals. Gold jewelry can be alloyed with silver, copper, zinc, palladium, and nickel to create different gold colors. 

The most common gold colors are yellow, white, rose, and sometimes green. We frequently buy:

  •  Wedding bands
  • Engagement rings
  • Class rings
  • Cocktail rings
  • Rings with or without gemstones
  • broken gold
  • Single earrings
  • Gold bracelets
  • Necklaces
  • Unfashionable or vintage gold watches
  • Tiffany gold
  • David Yurman gold

In short, we buy and sell all forms of gold.

We Buy Used or Unused Dental Gold

Gold has been used in dentistry for thousands of years. Higher-grade gold is too soft to survive a lifetime of chewing; therefore, dental gold is typically between 10 to 16 karat. People often don’t know what to do with their old gold dental crowns, but we’ll buy them! You don’t even need to worry about separating the crown from the tooth.
