Great time to sell gold and support the NHS
Many of you may be busier during lockdown than you were before with home-schooling etc, but if you’re looking for something profitable to do, we have a suggestion. Why not have a clear out and go through your jewellery boxes and drawers to see if you have any unwanted items of jewellery to sell. A broken chain, a single earring, an old brooch or a sovereign or two may no longer be of use to you. However small you think they may be; they all have a value.
The price of gold is currently higher than it has been in the last 10 years and very close to an all-time high. At the time of writing the price is close to $1700 an ounce. This is driven by the demand for bullion as an investment while stocks and shares are on the decline. It is also pushed higher because many mines have ceased production.
When we are able to open again, we can assess your bits and pieces for you. We can provide you with three options. Firstly, there would be a part exchange value against a new purchase or commission. Secondly, there is the cash value for scrap. In normal transactions we offer the trade bullion scrap value of the day less a 10% handling fee. For deals of over £10,000, the fee is reduced.
Thirdly, and most importantly, we are willing to waive our fee on anything you would like to donate to the NHS. Inspired by Captain Tom Moore’s 100th birthday walk, we felt we would like to raise £1,000 through the selling of scrap gold. We also thought £28 million would be nice, too!
It is appropriate that we should also put out a warning. You will remember that last time the price of gold peaked there was a sudden flurry of ‘Cash for Gold’ operators. Some set up tables in the shopping malls and many asked for items to be posted in. Although a few were bone fide companies many were not, and we were horrified to discover how little they offered the public and how much they made out of the opportunity.
Please send us an email or leave a phone message, if you prefer, and we will get back to you when we are able to start taking appointments. The success of the fund raising will depend on the response we receive. So, we would ask that if you are unable to find anything yourself, you would pass this on to someone you think could help.
