yep, the trick seems to be to sell it to almost anyone that isnt a heavily advertising sole 'little money for all your gold' company :) theres hundreds of copycat companies now to the above, whether originally from the usa or not, all over here knowing the price of gold has increased so much in the last couple of years. If you have alot of gold its always a good idea to give it to a real jewellers to find out its true worth. If you then know whats its worth, sell it back to them if possible (or as you did above, sell elsewhere) for as near to the stated possible, value as possible.. but NEVER EVER post it in an envelope, to anyone! lol ;)
buteman, you said - That was funny and with the price of gold heading for $2.000 an ounce well worth getting into the old jewellery boxes to see what you can find that you never use.
Is that $2 or $2,000? ...pardon my ignorance.
When the market closed yesterday (Friday) Gold had settled at around $1850 an ounce. That price is the result of overbuying, driven by panic. People are looking to gold as a safe haven, rather than the US dollar, and not just gold - silver is rising, too.
