If you are looking to sell gold and silver, you are looking for the best gold and silver prices and a gold buyer that is fair and honest. There are many gold buyers to choose from these days as follows
1/ Local Jewellers, Antique Dealers and local Gold Buyers who buy Gold. The plus side of selling your gold to a local jeweller is convenience, however please be aware that many local jewellers sell their gold and silver on to gold buyers like The Birmingham Gold Company. This means that you may well recieive a lower price for your gold as they have to make a profit . many will tell you that your gold and silver jewellery etc are not "scrap" and they will sell them on, not for the gold weight but rather as "items" and yet time and time again we have been told that the price they offer you IS BELOW SCRAP GOLD PRICE. The reason they try and buy your gold and silver below scrap price is that if they cannot sell your items on they then scrap them in with companies such as ours. Always check weights and price per gram offered You should be aware for example that your item weighs eg 10 grams and the scrap price is eg £120. Use the calculator on this site to check for yourself
2/ Postal Gold Companies. These should offer more but avoid them i/ if they don't have an actual address and ii/ if they don't actually state what the price poer gram is. Remember you dont want "up to" prices or market spot price That is not the price anyone in the world pays. All Gold buyers pay a PERCENTAGE of spot . You want to know their actual gold prices. You also want to check that if you for any reason do not accept their gold buying offer that your items will be returned to you asap free of charge, that way they do not have you over a barrel.
3/ National Gold Buyers. These are companies further up the gold buying chain as it were. Always pick a national gold buying company, such as The Birmingham Gold Company that is situated in a gold buying area for example Birmingham's famous Jewellery Quarter The reason for this is simple. We compete with other gold buyers in the Jewellery Quarter and this competition keeps our gold buying price as keen as possible.
