How to sell scrap

There is no need to keep broken gold and silver jewelry, old watches, gold plated spoons or any other broken item when you can get paid for them! It's time to sell those gold and silver scrap items that you have been keeping. At Dakota Coin & Precious Metals you can get the best deal for all your broken items or scrap metal. We make it easy to do so by following these three steps.

Step 1 - Gather your scrap gold together

Selling a very small piece of gold will not net much of a profit. Therefore, it's recommended that you gather all the scrap metal that you have from your old jewelry box, trunks and store rooms to sell at the same time. These items can contain pure or impure forms of gold and silver. Some examples include: bent or broken jewelry, bracelets or chains that are tangled, broken and unwanted gold scrap, casting gold and grain, cluster rings, gold alloys, gold bracelets, gold bullion, gold chains, gold class rings, gold coins and bars, gold dental crowns and bridgework, old gold watches, or even placer gold.

Step 2 - Get an Estimate

Now that you have gathered your scrap items you can set an appointment with Dakota Coin & Precious Metals to get a free estimate. During the appointment we will review and provide you a fair and honest analysis for the quality and quantity of your items. The estimate is valid for a limited time and if you decide not to sell right away you may need to get a new estimate when it is the right time for you to sell.

Step 3 - Get Cash

The price of your scrap gold is determined by a number of factors, including purity / Karat (10k, 14k, 18k, 22k, or 24k) of the gold you are selling. If you accept the estimate, you'll walk away with cash based on the current spot price of the gold or precious metals.
