Selling Gold: Factors to Consider

There are four main factors to consider when selling gold bars.

  1. The current price spot of gold- This means the current market’s dollar value for one pure ounce of gold. It is good to note that the gold spot price varies minute to minute.
  2. Gold Bar weight and purity- Most gold bars are stamped on the front or back with the weight/purity specifications. For the most part, gold bars are either .9999 or .999 pure. If the bar is not marked it may be copper or bronze and should be authenticated.
  3. Gold bar melt value- After obtaining the information about the purity and gold spot price, one can ask a buyer to estimate the melt value.
  4. Premium- A premium refers to the price added to the melt value of a gold bar. Calculation of the premium can depend on things such as the demand and cost of production.

Where to Sell Gold

  • eBay- Though eBay has a high rate of traffic, there’s no predictability with its bidding system. eBay is convenient but has a major problem with the lack of experts or specialists involved in the process. This means there are no verification or authenticity checks, allowing one to be vulnerable to scams. Due to this process, buyers will be looking for a history of selling gold before even considering a bid. It is also unlikely to receive the true value of your gold due to the process having no professional supervision.
  • Pawn Shops - Pawn shops are good for quick cash, but not value. A pawn shop can be a fast option but don’t expect high returns when selling your gold. The staff in pawn shops are not trained in precious metals and therefore may not provide an accurate evaluation. Since pawn shops deal with quick cash and turnovers, the offer will almost always start lower than the actual value.
  • Local Stores- Local stores reflect retail prices which are marked up significantly. When local jewelers buy pieces like gold coins or bars, they will normally sell them to a dealer, who will then sell them to a wholesaler. This chain makes the process more expensive leading local jewelers to offer a lower value deal.
