What is the price based on?

Our prices are based on the underlying metal prices at the time, combined with a number of other factors listed below; Certainly, when you buy gold or silver you should also be considering how you will eventually sell it, to maximise your profits. Just like when you buy a house, the easier that asset is to sell, the better price you’ll get for it. That’s why we focus on selling only the most liquid gold and silver.

Factors to consider:

  • Type of Gold or silver – Bars, bullion coins, proof gold, numismatic coins, collectors coins, gold dust, gold nuggets
  • Variety of coin – a liquid coin, rare coin
  • Condition of gold or silver
  • General market conditions and liquidity

At Physical Gold Ltd we only buy and sell investment grade gold. We will NOT buy or sell gold 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.

The price you receive for your gold 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 or silver.

It goes without saying that if you keep your metals in good condition it 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. Treat your metals with care.

You may see a slight variance in the offer prices you receive depending on the general metals market conditions. If a dealer feels the prices are set to rise they’re likely to bid more aggressively for your gold and silver!
