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:

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

At Physical Gold Ltd 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 on 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 gold and silver that you have purchased from us.

Variety of coin

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).

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.

Market conditions

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 to Physical Gold, 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 is 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.
