Gold Coin Melt Value

Melting gold coins is a very common process in the United States. There are billions of dollars’ worth of coins in circulation, and countless coins change hands every day. Most of the gold coins sold to gold buyers, pawn shops, and jewelers undergo melting because those buyers usually don’t have a market for those coins. This is unfortunate, because there is a big market for old or unwanted gold coins. Moreover, melting destroys the historical value. The gold coin melt value is an important figure for understanding how much a damaged gold coin is worth, but it should not mean that a prospective coin buyer melts the coin down.
