Our sell gold and silver calculator shows the actual price we pay for gold and silver items that we buy. In contrast many companies show the spot price known as the fix on their calculators and this can be very misleading as this is NOT the price they pay. All gold and silver buyers pay a percentage of the fix and we pay one of the best prices for gold and silver in the Uk and EU. Using the calculator correctly to sell your gold and silver to us as the gold buyer of your choice is very simple

The price we pay for your gold and silver will appear in the box on the right of our calculator....If in doubt read the instructions below the calculator on this page and then use the links to sell to us.

Using an online gold price calculator? When you want to sell your gold or silver, you want the best price for your jewellery and items, beware of these tricks from gold buyers.
The Gold Fix Trick
Be aware that many gold companies today are using a little trick to catch you out. Whilst we publish the actual price we pay on our gold price calculator many companies simply display the global market (ie spot or the fix ) for gold. They do not pay that amount as the small print reveals later, and if they did they would make no profit and therefore not be in business,but the fact is that you can be enticed by this trick and get far less than you bargained for. Always check that the price advertised is the price that you will receive for gold and silver.
The "Up To" Trick
When you want to sell your gold other companies quote an "up to" price, which is just as deceptive as the first "sell your gold to us " trick. You need accurate prices not vague guidelines promises, nor inaccurate promises. These companies quote an "up to" price only because they are too embarrassed to quote the true price they are offering for your gold. Avoid at all costs
The "No calculator / No published gold prices" Trick
Even worse some gold and silver buyers show no prices on their website making claims such as we will buy your gold and silver as items and so on. These companies are amongst the biggest rip offs in the UK and we have heard many horror stories as to how they offer less than 20% of the scrap value, only increasing their offer when pushed. if you are looking to sell gold or silver and are enticed by such a company, at least get a price from us first so you know the true value of your items. Then if you really want to send off your items to these types of companies make sure you can demand your items back when the scandalous offer is received. these gold buyers and vintage buyers don't publish their prices for a very good reason
