It’s basically just math, right?

You take the weight of the scrap gold, multiplied by the price of gold. Easy, right? Well, you’d think so, but some dealers try to make it more than it is.

Most dealers won’t tell you a price over the phone.

Most dealers won’t tell you a price over the phone. “The price changes all the time, so we don’t quote over the phone…” Nonsense. The price doesn’t change THAT much. They don’t WANT to give you a quote. They’re trying to maximize profits – at your expense.

The prices are what the prices are, so don’t work with people who won’t quote you.

When you call us, you’ll get a “Quote by Phone” estimate. Though we can’t tell you exactly. You can send us a picture…we’ll try to help. If it’s used gold or silver jewelry, we can tell you a price within 10%. If you know the weight or if you don’t, we’ll give you an estimate anyway.

It’s all valuable, it’s just a question of how much. At my store, I’ll tell you how much. No nonsense, no games – just doing the math.

Everything we do is honest and up front.

Our testing is on the counter where you can see it. Our scale is right in front of you, we don’t take your scrap gold “to the back”. We don’t block your view. At our store, you see everything while it happens. You can be sure you’re getting a good deal. We even show you the prices, then let you decide. It’s pretty simple.

We Buy Gold Coins and Gold Bars

As well as buying your scrap gold, we also purchase gold coins and gold bars. The price will vary depending on what item you have. Gold bars are typically always 24 karat or marked 99.99%. Gold coins can be 99.99% or anywhere down to 90% pure. Most gold coins still contain one full ounce of gold even if it is not 24 karat. If the gold spot price is at $1900 you could expect a price of $1900 down to $1850 for your 1oz gold item.
