What do I do with my scrap gold?

Scrap gold is usually jewelry that is ready to be refined and recycled. It can include: broken jewelry, damaged chains or a single earring. But not every piece of 14 carat gold you find should be refined. There are times when it makes sense to repair and restore pieces of old jewelry rather than melt them down.

What are gold’s alloy contents?

The most popular gold on the market is 14kt gold. What that means, is that 14 parts are gold, and 10 parts are other alloys mixed with it. 14kt gold is a good combination of both durability and luster.

Gold contents:

  • 24K gold is 99.9% pure gold
  • 22K gold is 91.6% gold
  • 20K gold is 83.3% gold
  • 18K gold is 75% gold
  • 14K gold is 58.5% gold
  • 10K gold is 41.7% gold

Identifying hallmarks on gold jewelry:

  • Carat weight hallmarks: 24K, 22K, 20K, 18K, 14K, 10K 
  • Gold purity in millesimal fineness: .999, .916, .833, .750, .585, .417
  • 24KT gold is 99.9% pure gold, 24 out of 24 parts are gold. 
  • 14KP stands for 14 carat plumb. If your ring has a “P” at the end of the stamp, like 14kp, that means that the gold is “plumb” and that it’s verified to be at least the karat content marked. So if it’s 14kp, it’s at least 14kt gold or higher in content.

What is my gold worth? How do I sell my scrap gold?

The market price of gold (also called spot price) changes every few seconds while markets are open. Daily and weekly market trends will affect the value of scrap gold. The amount that we will pay varies based on a lot of conditions.

Expect a reputable dealer like U.S. Coins and Jewelry to pay 80% or better for good clean gold under a few ounces. The payout for high carat gold, wearable gold, and collectible coins is usually higher. Essentially, expect a better deal for more volume and better quality items. Quality matters: High-grade gold coins, designer jewelry, and gold bars with collectibility are worth more.
