How we set our prices
Our prices are set daily and reflect the current market rate of gold. For coin purchases, we pay up to 95% of the spot rate. For jewellery purchases, we pay between 70% and 80% of the market rate in order to account for refining costs. The table below shows today’s prices per karat. There are no fees, charges or commissions on top of this! All of our appraisals are free and we do not charge for simple stone removal. If you do decide to sell, we will write you a check on the spot that can be cashed right away.
