How much is scrap gold worth you plan to sell?

Understanding the value of scrap gold is a solid foundation for a successful selling transaction and best for avoiding running into a gold buying scam. Doing a more or less precise pre-estimation by yourself is helpful and a very interesting lesson about the value of gold in general. It’s simple and the equipment is easy to get. Basically, you need a digital scale ($5) and a good working magnifier ($2). You can get this as a set in our reDollar ebay shop for $7 and we fully refund you, if you sell your scrap gold to us. Also take a look at your home office to check if there is a digital scale or a loupe available. Got it? You are almost half way through. Now, check your gold with the magnifier or loupe for markings. Usually you can spot the markings/ stamps easily. Spotting markings is normally only tricky if your scrap gold is very old, dirty or worn out. You should be good to go.

Here is a list of markings/ stamps you should be able to spot on your scrap gold:

10Kincludes 41.6% pure goldlow$15.35 $23.87
14Kincludes 58.5% pure goldmedium$21.59 $33.56
18Kincludes 75.0% pure goldhigh$27.67 $43.03

Where does all the scrap gold come from?

Regularly, we get asked where all the scrap gold comes from. Journalists and even students are contacting us to find out where all the gold comes from. We are always happy to share our knowledge with the public and to provide you with interesting information we just want you to think about this little math based on a statistic.


Unfortunately, 2,500 divorces take place every day totaling 876,000 a year. Let’s assume that 2 out of 3 couples crowned their marriage with a golden wedding ring.

An average wedding ring weighs approx. 5.5 grams and was mostly made of 14K gold.

876,000 x 2 (woman & man) x 5.5 grams = 9,636,000 grams of 14K gold = 21,243.74 pounds 21,243.74 pounds of 14K gold = 12,427.58 pounds of pure gold = $382,815,428.77

This is just one big source of where all the scrap gold is coming from. If you think about additional sources, think about heritages, medical merchandises like dental gold or screws needed for surgeries, out of fashion jewelry or even coins. Bad that’s not too bad because scrap gold means that already used gold finds its way back into the recycling cycles. Less impact on mother earth’s nature is just one nice thing about selling scrap gold. How cool is that? You can save the environment selling your old gold.

Scrap gold selling scam

In this article, we already highlighted the fact that the gold buying industry reflects a bad reputation. Frankly and unfortunately, with good reason because no matter if you look to New York or California countless gold buying operations got only set up to get your scrap gold for a bargain. You know, the bank always wins! Mostly, gold buyers are winning and deals are not equal. A company is typically found to make money and that’s ok but if it comes to talk reliability and fairness many entities fail. We listed you the most common scrap gold selling scams: 8 or 10 grams make a difference! Regularly we hear or read about “scale scam” if it comes to sell scrap gold. If this scam takes place, a gold buyer is intentionally manipulating the scale. It’s easy like 1-2-3 to show a reduced weight on a gold buyer’s scale. It only needs a 2 grams weight and pushing the “tare button” to set the scale back to zero. If you now put a 10 gram weighing brooch on a manipulated scale, the measured weight will display only 8 grams. Don’t believe this scam is working? Check our photos: SCALE SCAM PHOTO What we do, to make you feel comfortable with us: we open your scrap gold package video recording the whole opening process clearly showing our scale set to zero. If the scale shows zero, no manipulation is possible anymore. We have nothing to hide why we deliver the video to your inbox at the same day and only short before you get our offer.

Other ways to rip you off are:

  • Telling you the incorrect purity of your gold
  • Asking you “how much you want” without making an offer first
  • Badmouthing your property
  • Intentionally keeping a “little something” from your offered selling lot
  • Putting selling pressure on you
