BUYING ALL FORMS OF SILVER – OAKTON COINS & COLLECTIBLES

We Buy All Forms of Silver 

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


We Buy and Sell Silver Bullion

Silver 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 silver bullion transaction.

We regularly buy the following types of silver bullion products:

  • .999 Fine Bars & Rounds
  • American Eagles
  • Sterling Bars & Rounds
  • American Silver Eagles

We Buy All Forms of Silver Jewelry 

We have the experience to understand and price all types of silver jewelry, in any —.800, .925 sterling, .999 pure, or anything in between. We have the right testing equipment (x-ray and acid) and can therefore offer the highest price. Silver jewelry is not usually pure silver; it is an alloy, or a mixture of metals.

We frequently  buy:

  • Silver
  • Silver class rings
  • Rings
  • Rings with gemstones with the stones removed
  • Broken silver
  • Single earrings
  • broken silver bracelets
  • Necklaces
  • Any silver jewelry, whether wearable or not
  • Antique, vintage silver, and silver watches

We Buy Sterling Silver Flatware & Silver Trophies

Flatware silver is usually between .800, .925 (sterling) pure. Flatware and sterling silverware sets can be worth a good amount of money, usually making it worthwhile to sell your unwanted silverware. Oakton Coins & Collectibles offers top dollar for sterling hollowware, silver flatware, tea sets, and candlesticks.  The price of a silverware set can vary widely, due to a number of factors including age, weight, manufacturer, design, and the current market price for silver.  Tiffany silver and David Yurman silver flatware sets tend to command more than the melt value. 


We Buy and Sell 90% & 40% Silver US Coins and Foreign Silver Coins

Pricing for 90% and 40% silver coins is based on the current silver spot price, but it is quoted at face dollar value (10 silver dimes = $1 face, 4 silver quarters = $1 face, and so on). Oakton Coins & Collectibles purchases silver quarters, silver dimes, and silver half dollars of all types, in any quantity. Simply visit our secure location during business hours. We will quickly provide you with a free, no-hassle offer. We have a specialized coin counter, so you don’t have to waste time sorting.
