In case you didn’t know, gold and silver have been on a tear in 2020. Gold prices managed to surge to an all-time high, above £1,500 per troy ounce just this summer. Silver is lagging somewhat, but also made decent gains, having enjoyed a COVID-19-induced leap.
This means any gold or silver you find in your home could fetch a far higher price than ever before. Sadly, we’ve seen a rise in unscrupulous or even fraudulent people enter the market as buyers, trying to cash in on this trend. Don’t get left in the dark by a scrap buyer today – sell your items with UK Scrap Gold instead.
Our numbers add up for gold and silver
UK Scrap Gold has been closely watching gold and silver trend higher over the course of the year. Prices are impressive for scrap at the moment, making it an ideal time to sell. As mentioned, a valuation is crucial, but you also need to know the context.
Some buyers are just not clear enough about the prices they offer for your scrap and how they calculate it. Some might not even publish what the actual price of gold is, effectively putting you in the dark about how much your item could actually be worth.
That’s why we provide a Live Gold Tracker page, which lets you chart the price of gold in real time. In order to get an accurate valuation for individual items, all you have to do is use our Scrap Gold Calculator. Just enter the weight and purity of the item, measured in carats.
Just one gram of 9-carat gold could yield as much as £16.74, so heavier items with a greater purity could be worth even more for you. Making a sale with us offers greater sums than other vendors, thanks to our digitised approach to gold transactions. This keeps a lid on overheads, making sure you get a higher sum for your item.
Transparency in selling precious metals
Many sites facilitate sales of precious metals just like us, but our scrap gold calculators are a far more transparent way for us to help you make a sale. It puts the requisite information right at your fingertips, so you can make a truly informed decision.
Any questions regarding transactions, payment, delivery and much more can be answered by checking out some of our Frequently Asked Questions. These can especially come in handy, if you’re new to selling scrap gold and silver.
