Buy & Sell Gold

Even if you don’t know the specifics, everyone knows that gold is valuable. And since we deal in anything of value at Westminster Pawn, we are trained in appraising gold to buy and sell. The next time you’re looking to invest in gold or want to trade in your current gold for cash, you can stop by our shop for a fast and easy process with the fairest payout.

How We Evaluate Gold Properties

In order to give you fair gold prices, our appraisers are knowledgeable in the properties of gold and how to properly evaluate them for accuracy. This includes determining the karat of each piece and comparing it with the current market price of gold. As long as we have these skills under our belt, we can gladly accept any form of gold whether it be bars, jewelry, or anything else you can think of.

What is a Karat?

The karat of gold refers to its composition. As you may or may not know, not all gold pieces are made of pure 100% gold. This is especially true with jewelry as jewelry makers blend gold with other alloys such as copper, nickel, zinc, and so on.


Gold Karat Chart
  • 10 karat = 10/24 parts gold or 41.7% purity
  • 14 karat = 7/12 parts gold or 58.3% purity
  • 18 karat = 3/4 parts gold or 75% purity
  • 24 karat = 24/24 parts gold or 99.9% purity or higher

How We Use Current Gold Prices

After determining the karat of your gold and weighing it for a measurement, we compare it to the current price of gold for an accurate price. Although gold is valuable because it never loses its value as a precious metal, the specific price still fluctuates even if just slightly.

Types of Gold that We Accept

One of the most desirable qualities of gold is its ability to be melted down and reformed into literally any shape imaginable. Because of this, we accept gold pieces of every type including:

  • Gold jewelry
  • Gold bars
  • Gold coins
  • Gold nuggets
  • Gold flakes

These are just a few of the more common forms of gold that we see pass through our shop, but we don’t shy away from more obscure pieces. We’ll even take gold teeth!
