Almost two years since we first heard about COVID-19, we approach Christmas with high prices eating into our incomes and the threat of a new variant in the headlines. These may give us little reason for festive cheer, but gold prices have remained high, and this could mean it’s worth considering selling gold today.
A Golden Christmas
Times have been tough for millions of us, and it can be hard to feel like there are many reasons for cheer. High inflation makes our money worth that bit less than before, and the arrival of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 could mean our freedoms are curtailed for more weeks and months to come. Gold, however, could offer some light in the darkness this Christmas. Prices have stayed stable in the last year or so, close to all-time highs set in the summer of 2020.
Since we first learnt about the existence of COVID-19 in 2019, gold has gained 20 per cent in value. Going back to 2015, the price of gold has effectively doubled, meaning anyone who came into the possession of even a bit of gold has seen the value of their items appreciate considerably. UK Scrap Gold has seen this in the gold markets over the past few years and offers a fair slice of the action so you can benefit nicely from selling with us.
As we facilitate sales digitally, we have lower overheads than some gold buyers, meaning the gold you sell to us will be more likely to reflect the true value of the item, as compared with market gold prices. To give you a near-instant reading of just how competitive our prices our, check out our Gold Scrap Calculator. Just one gram of 9-carat gold could make £15.57 if you sell today.
A Merrier Christmas than Most
Gold holds great intrinsic value, all thanks to its lack of corrosion over centuries and that distinctive yellow-y shine. You may happen to hold gold in the form of a ring, other forms of jewellery, or even collector’s items such as gold coins or forms of investment such as bullion bars. Just because an item isn’t pure gold doesn’t mean it is of no value: UK Scrap Gold has previously facilitated sales of items made from rose or white gold (gold alloys), which still hold considerable value on the gold markets.
Now you know what just a gram of 9-carat gold can attract, imagine what an even larger item of greater purity could be worth. At a time when money is tight but you’re looking for a chance to celebrate, gold could be the ticket to a merry Christmas for you this year.
It all begins with filling out our Seller Form, so we can help learn more about the item you wish to sell. Make sure to send one off to us by the third week of December, to ensure your sale can be processed by the festive holidays, or you may have to wait until the new year for us to facilitate a sale for you. If you have any queries about selling gold this Christmas, don’t hesitate to get in touch with UK Scrap Gold today.
