Our customers are aware we give some of the highest prices within the UK for scrap gold, silver, and other precious metals such as Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium and to be truthful we have to so we can compete with our rivals. Please be aware that there are companies who will unscrupulously offer a ridiculously high price on-line for your precious metals only then to offer a derisory amount upon receipt of your items and then miraculously offer twice the amount when you refuse out of hand the original offer (which of course is still be well down on the market rate anyway!). There are traders within the business who will attempt to rip you off, powerful words but regretfully true.

9 carat gold is presently worth over £11 per gram and although a tad volatile due to world economic problems it is generally still on the up! Our recommendations to evade under par low price offerings and conversely, outrageous claims of artificially high prices are as follows;
