As news of the new COVID-19 variant Omicron dominates the headlines this Christmas, you may be looking for reasons to be cheerful. With high inflation eating into incomes to go alongside it, it might feel like all is lost. However, high gold prices could be waiting in the wings to bring light to all the gloom.
One of the reasons for gold providing some cheer this Christmas is down to its tendency to rise in value during times of economic stress. The pandemic has delivered this in spades, with gold prices having risen 20 per cent since Christmas 2019, when COVID-19 first started appearing in the headlines. Prices peaked in 2020 and have remained close to those all-time highs throughout 2021, offering plenty of opportunities for anyone with a bit of gold to benefit from making a sale.
Over the last six years, gold prices have doubled, reflecting the uniquely attractive position it is to be in possession of even the smallest piece of gold this Christmas. Scrap Gold UK has seen how attractive the gold markets have become, and there is great demand for fresh supplies of gold, with buyers willing to pay a higher price than in previous decades just to get a piece of the action.
At Scrap Gold UK, we offer fairer prices for scrap gold sold to us, as we have fewer overheads than other comparable buyers on the market. That means, for example, according to our Gold Scrap Calculator, that a single gram of 9-carat gold could fetch as much as £15.56.
Scrap Gold UK has been operating in the gold markets for long enough to know how to facilitate sales of gold in an efficient manner, offering a fair price. If you wish to ensure a sale by year’s end with Scrap Gold UK, we strongly advise getting in touch before the third week of December, as demand for selling often increases just before we close our doors over the festive holidays, and time could be of the essence.
It all starts with filling out our simple Seller Form. All you need to give is the necessary information to ensure a secure transaction, and we suggest you use the Royal Mail’s home collection service for your item. This avoids standing in a long queue at the Post Office, so you need not set foot outside your front door to make a sale.
If you have any queries about selling gold this Christmas, Scrap Gold UK is happy to receive your call. Get in touch with us today, to learn just why selling gold could give you reasons for cheer this festive season.
Our website will remain available throughout the festive period but our offices will close from 3.30pm on Thursday 23rd December 2021 until 10am on Tuesday 4th January 2022.
Due to ongoing disruption to the postal service in some areas, your last day for despatching Royal Mail insured Special Delivery parcels for delivery to us before Saturday 18th December.
Parcels that we do not receive by 1pm on the 23rd December will be processed after our return to work on 4th January and may be held in Royal Mail storage until that date.
We will resume normal service on 4th January 2022.
