The Price is Right to Sell Your Scrap Gold

Published Thursday 23rd May 2019

Deadlock in Westminster, combined with uncertainty about the UK’s future relationship with Europe has seen the price of gold remain elevated. As of late May 2019, it remains close to £1,000 per troy ounce.

It could prove to be the best time to look under the sofa or in your bedroom drawer for any scrap gold you might happen to find lying around. Maybe you’ve got a bit of scrap gold gathering dust and fancy a little bit more cash. It might just be time to sell that scrap gold with Scrap Gold UK.

Unbeatable value for your scrap gold

Here at Scrap Gold UK, we aim to make sure your scrap gold is sold at the value you deserve. Over on our Live Gold Price page, we track the price of gold, as set by the London Gold Fix. In the gold markets, this metric is something of a gold standard.

Gold is valued through quantity and carat, otherwise known as purity. The higher the purity, the higher its potential value.

Bearing these things in mind, Scrap Gold UK ensures that the scrap gold that we receive is bought from you at a price closely matched to the market price.

Wide range of gold items accepted

Scrap Gold UK doesn’t judge the scrap gold you sell based on condition - it doesn’t matter if you’ve got a golden watch that’s broken. If it’s gold, it’ll be worth something. Got a ring made of gold, but it looks not so shiny as you think it should? It’s still worth its weight in gold to us.

We don’t just accept gold items - if you’ve got items of scrap made of silver, palladium or platinum, we’ll be happy to take a look at them and give you a valuation. Make sure to try the scrap silver calculator, to get an idea of how much you could make. 

We even accept gold alloys, so don’t worry if you think your scrap gold isn’t quite pure - if there’s gold, we’re happy to take a look.

Please note that customers wishing to sell items valued over £2,000 should get in touch by phone or email, so we can discuss the safest way to ensure your gold reaches its intended destination.

Convenient online valuations

Feel like that scrap gold is burning a hole in your pocket? Why not try out our online gold valuation calculator? It’s a hassle-free way of getting a valuation on the spot. You just need to know the weight and carat of the item in question. These metrics allow our valuation calculator to give you a rough estimate for what you could make, by selling to us today.
