Are you looking to sell gold or silver?
If you’re looking to sell gold and silver, either coins or bars, then we’re as happy to buy as we are to sell. Infact, we are pleased to offer a Buyback Guarantee on all purchases. In addition, we can also offer to buy coins that you have purchased elsewhere, subject to prevailing stock levels. The process to sell your gold and silver is as straightforward as buying it.
You can find an indicative price below for all the precious metal that we buy. Published on a regular basis, you can contact us to confirm the price when you are ready to sell. If you’re happy with the offer, the paperwork can be downloaded from our website.
Because we only sell the most liquid types of gold and silver coins and bars, we’re able to offer all our clients a Buyback Guarantee. We promise to repurchase any metals sold by us, regardless of how much time has elapsed since purchase. This provides you with the knowledge and comfort that if you need to quickly sell any, or all, of your holdings, then we’ll facilitate that for you.
In fact, we go a step further, as we believe our role in buying back is as important as our guidance when selling. We give you a ‘sell it now’ market rate for all your gold or silver if you need to sell immediately. Alternatively, if you’re able to wait, we make a note of your intention to sell and try, as brokers, to match with buyers over the coming weeks. If there’s a solution that works, then you’ll obtain an enhanced price, as we’re essentially cutting out the wholesale element.

For this reason, it’s important to have an ‘exit strategy’ in place even before you buy the asset. How many times have you heard of someone holding out for a price on their property, only to be told: “it’s only worth what someone will pay.”
The best starting point is to ensure the asset you buy is as liquid as possible. For example, if you buy an investment property, ensure you don’t narrow your possible future buyers, by purchasing an obscure property like a converted lighthouse. The reason 2-bed flats are such popular investments is that they’re easy to sell, thus achieving the best possible price.
Gold investment and property are comparable in this way. It’s crucial to buy gold or silver which is world renowned and desirable. As a business, we only sell very liquid gold and silver. We don’t offer obscure collector’s pieces, as we believe liquidity plays a key role in maximising returns.
If you purchased well-known, liquid coins, then you have various selling options. Certainly, if they’re pre-owned coins they’ll possess an additional value over and above their gold content – reflecting their additional history, relative rarity and desirability. If you’re able to sell these coins off piecemeal, to private individuals, you’ll obtain the best possible price, as you may be able to find investors and collectors willing to pay higher premiums for certain coins. eBay can be a good platform for finding private buyers, but don’t forget to factor in Paypal charges and to include a reserve price!
At the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s the convenience of a local jeweller. The compromise is that the jeweller is likely to melt the metal down for jewellery and pay you below market rate.
If you’re seeking a combination of convenience, instant liquidity and price, then a buyback from the original dealer is the best option.

The decision to sell your silver and gold may be influenced by current market fluctuations and the price we pay is also based on this important factor. However, we also take into consideration a number of other influencers, including:
- Type of gold or silver – bars, bullion coins, proof coins, numismatic coins, collector’s coins, foreign coins.
- Variety of coin – a liquid coin (e.g. Sovereigns or Britannias), rare coin.
- The condition.
- General market conditions and liquidity.
All of these conditions affect how liquid your assets are and, equally, how saleable they will be for us as a precious metals dealer. When we sell silver and gold, we provide our clients with premium quality products even if they have been pre-owned. In order to maintain this level of quality, we must ensure that the precious metals we buy back retain an investment value to allow our customers to realise a profit.
Types of gold or silver
We only buy and sell gold and silver that is of a superior quality. With gold, this is defined as ‘investment grade’ gold. We will NOT buy or sell gold (or silver) jewellery, gold dust or gold nuggets. Our aim is to help you to receive the best profits possible for your investment, which is why we only sell well-recognised, liquid coins and bars.
Similarly, we’re always happy to buy back the coins featured within our bullion coins page at market rate. We will generally pay a premium for proof gold coins.
As a guarantee, we will always buy back items that you have purchased from us.
Variety of coins
If you are trying to sell gold or silver coins, then the price you receive for your precious metals will depend on the type of coin. Obscure coins may be difficult to sell on, which will affect the price offered. Seeking guidance from your dealer when buying your coins will prevent you from being stuck with difficult to sell gold and silver.
All coins purchased through Physical Gold can be sold back to us and we can make you an offer on coins purchased from other dealers (subject to our stock levels as well as the type, condition and variety of coin).
The condition of gold or silver
It goes without saying that if you keep your metals in good condition then they will fetch a better price. A general rule of thumb is to stick with 22-carat coins, as these are far more resilient to scratches and wear than their 24-carat cousins. A dealer’s price will always be influenced by the condition of the gold, as they’ll be looking to sell that coin or bar on.
With this in mind, you should always treat your metals with care and store them in chemically neutral capsules or cases. You can find a range of accessories that we can supply to help keep your gold and silver in good condition in our online shop.
You may see a slight variance in the offer prices you receive depending on the general gold and silver market conditions. If a dealer feels the prices are set to rise they’re likely to bid more aggressively, so choosing the right time to sell your gold and silver is key.
When you sell gold and silver, we undertake a full and comprehensive testing process to verify the quality of the metal. In most cases, the price we have agreed to buy your silver and gold at is the price we pay. However, you should be aware that any discrepancies in the condition, type of metals and grading quality can affect the valuation. If there are any issues, then we will contact you with a revised price which you are free to accept or reject. If you don’t wish to sell your silver and gold to us at the revised offer, then we will return your precious metals to you.
Obviously, gold and silver that has been stored in our vaults are not subject to the same verification process and the price quoted for the release of your stored assets is the price that we will pay to you on completion of the relevant paperwork.
