Lean January Could Be Golden In 2021

Published Tuesday 19th January 2021

Last Christmas was unlike any that came before, but even so, many of us will have tried to include as many of the trimmings and creature comforts to get us through the festive season. As a result of a weak economy and continued restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, January 2021 will be a leaner time than we could have anticipated.

But it doesn’t have to be all belt-tightening and gloom - a bit of scrap gold could go a long way, and provide that much needed injection of cash, to get you through the cold grey month of January.

January could be golden

Prices in the gold scrap market have been exceptionally high in the last 12 months especially, making January 2021 an opportune time to line up a sale of scrap gold with Scrap Gold UK. We’ve been tracking the price of gold on the open market, and it’s been hitting new record highs as recently as late summer last year.

At one point, prices hit £1,500 per troy ounce. Prices have dipped somewhat since then, but remain high by historical norms, and this has fed through into the broader gold scrap markets. As a result, we can offer you as much as £15.64 for just one gram of 9-carat scrap gold. Our overheads are minimal as Scrap Gold UK offers its services online, allowing us to offer you an exceptionally good price for whichever item you may wish to sell.

It pays to keep an eye on where the price of gold is going, so you can time your sale to ensure real value for money. Use our Gold Scrap Price Tracker and the Gold Scrap Calculator to stay up to date on gold prices and then see what your item could be worth, should you wish to sell today.

Safe sales through the post

As the COVID-19 virus continues to infect large numbers of people in the UK at present, lockdown restrictions remain in place across the country. In the interests of health and safety, it is advised for all of us to minimise contact with those outside our households. Understandably, it isn’t ideal to have to leave the safety of your home to stand in queues at the Post Office.

Instead, you can go online and arrange for Royal Mail to collect your package straight from your door. Want to make sure the item gets where it’s supposed to? You can track your parcel here. Ready to make a sale? Fill in this Seller Form here.
