About Kedzie Koins Jewelry & Watches, Inc.
Kedzie Koins has been a mainstay in the competitive Chicago coin and bullion market for nearly 50 years. We attribute our longevity to our track record of professionalism and putting the customer first.
Our president, Steve Harrison, is more than a coin, bullion and watch dealer ‒ he has a passion for numismatics that goes back 30 years when he first followed in his father’s footsteps at Kedzie Koins.
One of the greatest pleasures Steve gets is being able to buy back a rare coin his father sold a Kedzie Koins customer years ago. Each time, it’s validation of his reputation for customer satisfaction, first and foremost.
Steve is pleased that the Professional Numismatists Guild has launched its precious metals division ‒ the PNG-Accredited Precious Metals Dealer program. “Many people get taken advantage of when they try to buy gold and other precious metals,” Steve says. “It’s so important that they have the opportunity to buy from accredited precious metals dealers who are subject to the strict standard of ethics and professionalism as members of the PNG.”
Kedzie is founded on the same basic principle as the APMD ‒ that all of its customers are happy with their transactions. This objective is accomplished daily, as the lengthy list of customer testimonials on our website attests.
Kedzie Koins, Watches & Jewelry is proud to be a member of the Professional Numismatists Guild (PNG), Accredited Precious Metals Dealers (APMD), National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) and the American Numismatic Association (ANA). In addition to being an authorized dealer of NGC and PCGS, Kedzie is recognized as a Power Seller by eBay.
Why Buy Gold and Other Precious Metals
With the unsteadiness of the stock market and potential weakening of the dollar, a percentage of your net worth should always be comprised of gold and other precious metals. For most people, 20% is a good place to start.
Your portfolio should be tailored to meet the changing requirements of different stages in your life. Younger people should own a higher percentage of precious metals because they are solid long-term investments. Baby boomers and older people should own smaller percentages of hard assets, because their financial needs are more immediate.
One of the greatest attributes of precious metals is that they are very liquid – you can sell them easily at any time to precious metal dealers, jewelry stores, coin dealers, even pawn shops. Precious metals are always worth money.
Your Satisfaction is Why We Thrive
At Kedzie Koins, Jewelry & Watches, customer satisfaction is our primary goal, and that’s the main reason why our business has thrived since 1969.
In addition to our broad selection of rare and bullion coins, we will buy and sell gold and other precious metals in any form. We also specialize in fine jewelry and antique pocket watches. We offer free consultation and no-obligation appraisals while you wait.
Whether your buying or selling, we believe you will always be happy with your transactions with Kedzie Koins. Please visit our website or give us a call at 773-436-0777, and ask for a free consultation.
