Around BC, consumers have seen these signs going up: “trade in scrap gold for cash.” It is hard to imagine how a broken necklace or some old dental gold could be worth anything to anyone, but there it is: a sign of the economic times. Vancouverites endured a long, hard recession and things are looking up, but those “cash for gold” signs have not come down; need has turned to curiosity. Sure, there are still people who will trade precious metal because they can’t afford to buy groceries that week and illegal exchanges take place too, but knowledge about gold as an investment commodity has increased. With this new knowledge has come continued interest in selling gold for cash.

Cash for Gold Vancouver

Going back to the average person in this beautiful part of western Canada, consider the perks of finding old, broken pins and ornaments worth nothing on a sentimental level. When collected, they might weigh several hundred grams and, if they contain at least 10K of gold, these objects could be swapped for $15 or more in hard cash. When you live right in Vancouver, rent is high and it’s not cheap to run or park a car. Discovering a purpose for abandoned bits and bobs like these would be like finding an unclaimed lottery ticket with 4 out of 6 numbers and unexpectedly claiming a small but welcome financial prize.

Sell Gold Vancouver

Serious investors who have bought gold bars and bullion coins or numismatic (collectible) coins for a rainy day are now trading them in to pay for retirement, a holiday, their children’s college fees, or home renovations. They traded only in pure gold which was considered acceptable by major Vancouver gold dealers. Some of these people trade the gold for cash at the same shops where small-time transactions are taking place. Established business people aim to treat both types of customer with the same honesty and courtesy.

Valuing Gold

Gold experts judge the value of an item by its karat (purity) rating and its weight, going right down to one-gram level. Even a small piece could be worth trading in. A 24K pair of gold earrings is made from 100% pure gold metal. When melted down, these can be turned into a 100% pure gold coin, necklace, or pendant for a discerning, eco-friendly customer.

Rates for the exchange of gold should be listed at every store you visit, and in this modern age they are also shown on websites. Certain stores have the facilities and expertise to accept more than gold: silver, diamonds, and other precious commodities too. Prices change daily because gold’s value goes up and down on the stock market all the time.

Find a Vendor

Vancouver gold dealers are located close to Gastown, on the Downtown East Side, and along Kingsway near Boundary Road. Greater Vancouver also encompasses Burnaby, Richmond, Port Moody, and Coquitlam. While the Gastown area is very nice and places you close to Stanley Park, it might be more convenient to explore locations further east or south. Compare prices between at least 3 stores, especially if you are holding onto enough gold to make it worth traveling an hour in traffic to visit the best store with the highest rates and most satisfying reputation.

Instant Money

Swapping gold for real money today is something people do all the time in big and small amounts. A major benefit of making this exchange is that there is no waiting period. You buy the gold and obtain cash right away. A loan would take time and you would be paying interest. With the sale of your gold it’s possible to satisfy utility companies, the landlord, and buy food for the week without signing a contract or considering a future of debt repayment to a money lender. This is by far the easiest way to obtain cash quickly if there is no time to compare or to travel between stores and the amount you have in mind is small.
