Chicago Loan Company not only purchases and provides pawn loans against precious metals, specifically gold and platinum, but also deals in gold and platinum bullion and coins. While we generally do not loan against or purchase silver jewelry, we will work with sterling silver flatware and tableware. Unlike your typical pawnshop, we do not simply weigh your metal and provide a loan based on a percentage of the spot price of that particular metal. Rather, we pay a premium for signed goods and gemstones, and consider aesthetic value, numismatic value and overall salability when determining the value of your item. Chicago Loan Company also has a trained numismatist on staff and has the unique ability to both purchase and loan against even the rarest of coins. Our experienced loan officers are equipped to offer pawn loans against and purchase everything from Flying Eagles to Double Eagles and Trade Dollars to Morgan Dollars, as well as bullion ranging from Pandas to Krugerrands to Maple Leaf’s. When making a pawn loan against, or selling such important coins, it is very helpful to bring all available documentation, including certification from the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) or Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
