Our Mission

"To enhance the economic climate and the quality of life in the Sauk Valley Area"

The Sauk Valley Area Chamber of Commerce is an association of professional individuals, men and women, representatives of business, industry, agriculture, as well as public and municipal organizations, joined together for the promotion and enhancement of the Sauk Valley community.

The Sauk Valley Area Chamber of Commerce has a long tradition of working for our members and listening to our members' needs. Our future continues on this path of excellence by creating a regional business organization, which works closely with our local development offices for the benefit of the Sauk Valley Region and our entire business community.

First Avenue Coin

 First Avenue Coin is a full-service coin store. We buy and sell gold, silver, coins and jewelry.  With original owner Jesse Gutierrez passing last December, brother Ed has continued to keep the store open on a part-time basis. This was Jesse's desire that his brother would continue to serve the Sauk Valley area. For more information you can go to or on Facebook. Ed can be reached at (815)564-8996.
