The past few years has seen a sharp rise in the price of precious metals, mainly gold and silver.
This has created an opportunity for people to offload unwanted items at great prices (Depending on who they have sold to!).
At our shop in Alton, Hampshire, we don’t only buy coins, but any type of gold and silver too!
Most people don’t realise the true values of their items, such as the broken gold chain they have in the drawer, to the canteen of silver cutlery they have tucked away in the loft.
We are different from many ‘gold buyers’. We will take the time to sort your items in front of you, distinguishing items of value from less commercial pieces. We make free no obligation offers, with immediate cash settlements if acceptable. Unlike other traders, we will not pressure you into selling anything, and will always make a fair offer.
