The dreaded R-word – recession – is back in the headlines, spelling tough times ahead for the UK. Many of us are really counting every penny, but did you know that scrap gold could be just the ticket to getting a much-needed cash boost this Christmas?
It all starts with coming to Cash for Your Gold, and seeing our market leading prices for your scrap gold items that we have to offer, this festive season.
Dreaming of a gold Christmas
Times are tough, but that’s precisely why scrap gold could be so valuable this year. Cash for Your Gold has been tracking gold prices in 2020, and we’ve seen prices rise to an all-time high of over £1,500 per troy ounce this summer. Follow the story of rising gold prices this year, using our Live Gold Price tracker here.
As a result, this feeds into higher scrap gold prices across the market. Finding the right price matters, so that’s why Cash for Your Gold is worth turning to. Unlike many buyers, our work is highly digitised, meaning lower overheads and higher scrap prices on offer than others.
If you’ve found a bit of scrap gold in your home over lockdown, and are in need of some extra cash this Christmas, now could be the perfect time to sell. Use our Gold Scrap Calculator to see what your item could earn today – all you need is to have an idea about the weight and purity as measured in carats.
For example, just one gram of scrap gold, with 9-carat purity, could make as much as £16.19 – it doesn’t take much to imagine what you could make with a heavier item with even higher purity.
