Don’t Miss Gold’s Record-Breaking Summer

Published Wednesday 28th August 2019

Scrap gold can be passed down in all shapes and sizes. Maybe you’ve realised you’ve got some old gold jewellery or a gold wristwatch you have no need for. If you’re thinking of selling it for scrap, it may be worth considering selling it with Scrap Gold UK, especially with prices at their current record highs!

Gold specialists

Scrap Gold UK has been handling sales of scrap gold in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter for many years. This summer has been a great time for buyers and sellers of gold – prices touched an all-time high, breaking over the £1,200 per troy ounce barrier just a few weeks ago.

As of late August, you can expect just one gram of 9-carat scrap gold to earn you as much as £14.44 – that’s the highest we’ve ever seen.

Wondering how we value any scrap gold we receive? Scrap Gold UK bases its prices on the daily London LBMA price. That means anyone wishing to sell their scrap gold to us will know they’re getting the cash they deserve, at a fair price.

Prices keep on rising

For many months now, Scrap Gold UK has been watching gold prices rise higher and higher. Now they are hitting levels some couldn’t have dreamed of, this summer.

Wondering what items we’re able to help you sell as scrap gold? We’ve been approached about the sale of gold items as diverse as jewellery, dental fillings, gold bars, and even special Gold Sovereign coins.

Not only do we accept items of scrap gold. We’ve made purchases of scrap silver too. Check out what you could get for selling your scrap silver with Scrap Gold UK today, using our Silver Calculator.

If it’s gold, it’s worth something

The way we value scrap gold is through weight and carat (a measure of purity). The higher the carat, the greater the purity. The most common carats used for jewellery and bullion range between 9 and 24 carats. 

Scrap gold has a habit of cropping up in the most unexpected places – maybe a relative passed some down to you, or maybe you found some under the sofa one day? It might seem small, but with gold still considered a highly valuable precious metal, it could be worth a small fortune.
