Is this Summer the Ideal Time to Sell Scrap Gold?

Brexit, the prospect of a new Government, and all the uncertainty these things bring has led to the price of gold spiking and remaining near record highs for a few weeks now. For anyone who happens to own a bit of unwanted scrap gold, it could be the ideal time to make a good deal of cash, by selling your scrap gold today.

A golden price opportunity

UK Scrap Gold has been watching gold prices continue to outperform other assets over the last few weeks with great interest, and you can track them too – just check out our Live Gold Prices page, to stay up to date on the movements in gold.

If you’re thinking about selling gold bullion or gold coins, it might be one of the best times in history to do so – as of late July, gold prices are hitting levels that have only been seen once before, in the summer of 2011. Gold failed to sustain that level for long, so the fact that it’s back at this level for such a sustained period of time is a sign that it could be just the time to sell scrap gold.

Want to get a quick and easy valuation for your scrap gold, without having to send it over just yet? Check out our Gold Scrap Calculator. Just a gram of scrap gold, with a purity of 9 carat, could earn you as much as £13.31 with UK Scrap Gold (as of late July), all the more of a reason for you to sell scrap gold with us today.

Jewellery and coins

Scrap gold can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Maybe you’ve got your hands on an unwanted heirloom, such as a gold ring, a gold chain or simply a gold watch or coin. UK Scrap Gold doesn’t just accept scrap gold items – we happily handle sales of scrap silver palladium and platinum too!

Selling Scrap Gold Offers Great Gains for Summer 2019

With gold prices close to breaking out to new all-time highs as of late June 2019, anyone with a little bit of gold might find it goes a long way.

It could fetch a respectable price as gold scrap, based on current gold valuations.

Great gains to be made

As of late June 2019, gold prices are elevated, at £1,100 per troy ounce. This is a price level that has rarely been seen in British history, and if you have unwanted scrap gold, you’ve got yourself an ideal opportunity to sell your scrap gold at some of the best valuations ever seen.

Brexit Uncertainty Offers Ideal Time to Sell Scrap Gold

As the UK’s political system remains paralysed over Brexit this summer, the price of gold remains elevated. As a result, it might just prove to be the perfect time to consider selling any scrap gold you have.

Gold prices typically rise in times of political and economic turbulence, so your scrap gold could be worth substantially more than it used to be. That old family heirloom might be gathering dust on your shelf, when it could help you make a respectable amount of cash.

Reasonable prices for your scrap gold

With UK Scrap Gold, you can be sure that you will get a reasonable price for your scrap gold. We base our pricings on the London Gold Fix, the standard metric by which to value gold in the markets. Check out our Live Gold Prices tracker, to see how the value of the precious metal fluctuates.

As of late May, it is over £1,000 per troy ounce, a level twice as high as it was in 2008, and close to its 2011 all-time high of £1,100. 

We offer customers a respectable pricing for their gold – its carat or purity is a defining feature. A single gram of 9 carat scrap gold could be worth as much as £11.64 as of May 2019, higher than a great deal of other scrap gold specialists currently offer.

What gold can I sell?

Got an item with some gold, but unsure if it’s worth selling? Perhaps it’s a ring, with gemstones inlaid? Or maybe it’s simply a piece of broken scrap gold? That’s not a problem. UK Scrap Gold is happy to help you.
