2019 has been a rollercoaster of a year for many. The gold markets have had something of a rollercoaster ride themselves, this year. Despite prices falling since September, anyone wishing to sell a bit of scrap gold this Christmas could find themselves still making handsome gains, given the yellow metal’s consistently solid performance during the year.
As we enter into a new decade, it makes sense to take a look at any scrap gold you might have lying around, and find a way to convert that into some easy cash, and even help recycle it into something else entirely.
Read on to learn about why Christmas 2019 is a golden time to sell scrap gold.
Gold was one of the three great gifts in the Nativity story for a reason - even since ancient times, the yellow metal has been seen as a precious metal, fit for a king. Its value has stood the test of time, and if you have any unwanted gold today, it could be just what you need to make a nice bit of money to splash out this festive season.
Prices have held around the £1,134 per troy ounce mark for a few days, but this remains over 10 per cent higher than it was last Christmas, making it a perfect time to sell.
Scrap Gold UK can help you work out how much your item could be worth in just a few short clicks. Try out our Scrap Gold Calculator - it just needs to know the weight and purity of your item in carat. This helps it calculate what you could expect to make, without having to send it in the post.
Wondering how to work out the carat? Check if the item has a stamp of some kind, as gold specialists often leave a stamp or mark, indicating its carat, from 9 to 24. The higher the carat, the higher the purity, and the higher the potential value.
We can offer as much as £13.27 for just a one-gram piece of 9-carat gold. Imagine what you can expect to make, from an even larger item, with a greater purity.
Recycling your gold for scrap could be the best thing to do this Christmas, as gold is so rare to find in nature. It has been said that all the world’s gold could be melted down and moulded into a cube that could fit under the Eiffel Tower.
With only so much gold to go around, any unwanted item of gold jewellery doesn’t have to sit idle - you could be selling it to us for a great price, and help get it melted down and reshaped into something new entirely, keeping the flow of gold steady for those that want it.
If you’re ready to sell, complete this form to get started - please note that we will be closed between 23rd December and 2nd January, if you wish to make an enquiry during the festive period.
Contact us today, if you’re considering selling some unwanted gold, but need to know a little bit more about what you could gain from selling to us.
Have a Merry Christmas and a fantastic new year!
