If you are looking to sell your gold, the most obvious question you are probably asking yourself now is "how much is it worth?" There are many factors to consider when determining how much money your coins, bullion, bars, jewelry, and more are worth. When you contact Precious Elements for a no-obligation, risk-free valuation, we will tell you exactly what you have and how much it’s worth so you can be confident that you are getting the best prices possible when you sell your valuables to us.
We are honest, transparent, and will answer any questions you have about your valuables or what they're worth. In fact, our passion for each and every precious metal means that we can spend hours talking about coins, bars, and jewelry—which is great news for clients that want to know more about their valuables before selling.
Our professional gold buyers are certified and trained to perform analyses that take into account all the special characteristics that some pawn shops and websites may not consider. Combined with our extensive knowledge and passion for educating owners, Precious Elements offers valuations that are second-to-none. Contact us online, give us a call, or visit us in-person to start a conversation and to learn how much your valuables are worth.
Of course, it helps to have knowledge of what goes into a valuation. Some of the important factors we consider include purity, weight, and market price (additional factors may apply to sell gold jewelry, coins, and other rare or highly valuable items).
One of the primary factors that impact the price of gold is its purity, or karat. A "karat" is a measurement of the fineness, or quality. The measurement represents the weight of actual gold in proportion to the item’s total weight, including alloyed metals and any impurities.
Because karats are measured per 24 parts whole, pure gold that has not been mixed with any other metals is therefore the most fine (24 karats, or 24K). Although technically 24 karat is 100% pure, actual 100% pure gold is virtually impossible to achieve, so the purest type available is 999.99 (also referred to as "five nines fine"). Just below this is 999.9, or "four nines fine", which is most commonly the purity level of 24K gold.
Measurements below 24K (such as 22K, 18K, 14K, and so on) indicate the fraction of gold and its resulting purity. For example, 14K (which means, 14 parts gold to 24 parts weight) has a purity of 58.3%, meaning 58.3% of the item by weight is pure gold and the remaining 41.7% is other metals.
The item’s physical weight is the second component of the value equation. Spot prices, which we will explain in the next section, are usually expressed in terms of ounces, although it is also possible to buy and sell gold by the gram; less common measurement units include tola, tael, and kilo. Most gold coins and bullion are measured in ounces, while most jewelry is measured in grams.
It is important to understand the difference between “ounces” and “troy ounces,” as these terms are sometimes incorrectly interchanged by sellers and less knowledgeable buyers. Precious metals, are always weighed in troy ounces, which equal approximately 31.104 grams; by comparison, regular ounces (also referred to as “avoirdupois” ounces) weigh approximately 28 grams.
The current market price, also known as the spot price, is the current price that it can be bought and sold for. Similar to the stock market, the spot price is affected by a variety of factors and is constantly changing. Some of the influencing factors that affect spot price include currency fluctuations, supply, demand, and even geopolitical reasons.
Another term you may come across is the “melt price”, especially when buying or selling coins, jewelry, and scrap. Melt price, or melt value, is calculated by the gold content within the item multiplied by the spot price.
Precious Elements offers fair market value for all types, qualities, and quantities. If you have any questions about gold prices, gold content, or would like to discover how much your valuables are worth, contact us online or give us a call to start a conversation.
There are additional factors that we consider when providing valuations. For example, rare or highly collectible coins or jewelry may be worth more than their melt price. A coin’s collector value, also known as it’s “numismatic” value, is determined by the year it was minted, the location it was minted, its condition, and its documented history. Gold jewelry from luxury designers may also be worth more than the current spot price.
Considering the additional factors that go into determining how much an asset is worth, it’s important that you sell to a buyer that truly understands how to determine the actual value of an item that may be rare, collectible, and more valuable than, say, a standard one-ounce 24K coin.
Precious Elements has extensive knowledge and experience buying and selling coins, jewelry, and watches, so we know factors to consider to make sure that you receive every penny your valuables are worth. And if you have any other item(s) to sell, you're in luck, because we are also among the most trusted and experienced buyers of a wide variety of other valuables, including: silver jewelry, silver coins, silver bullion, sterling silver cutlery, loose diamonds, diamond jewelry, Platinum, and more!
With so many “cash for gold” websites, online buyers, and pawn shops claiming to offer the “best prices for gold,” it can be hard to determine the best place to take your item(s). Fortunately, there is an easy, risk-free, and secure way to sell your valuables without selling yourself short. At Precious Elements, our aim is to streamline and demystify the selling process so you can turn coins, bullion, bars, and jewelry into extra cash, fast.
Of course, with so many online gold buyers and in-person purchasers to choose from, why make the choice to sell to Precious Elements? Some of the reasons why Precious Elements is the best buyer in Arizona and Texas, or anywhere for that matter, include:
As a family-run business, we believe in doing things a little different than our competitors. To start, we offer a no-obligation valuation process so you can get an accurate and honest cash offer without risk, confusion, or headache. If you are not satisfied with our offer or would like to cancel the transaction for any reason, we will send back your valuables free of charge.
Speaking of charges, Precious Elements does not tack on any additional fees for buying valuables. Other stores and buyers may deduct valuation fees, handling and processing fees, smelting fees, and many other hidden charges that can significantly lower the amount you receive for your assets. At Precious Elements, the valuation offer we provide is the amount we pay, period.
One of the reasons why Precious Elements is able to offer the best prices for coins, bullion, bars, and jewelry is because we have cut out the middleman from the process. We run our own refinery and refurbish/resale items ourselves, so we are able to pass the savings on to you that might otherwise go to refiners or jewelry stores. Because we “do it all,” we are able to offer the highest payouts for valuables among our competitors.
There is no runaround when you sell to Precious Elements. Our professional buyers are certified and trained to perform expert analyses and accurate appraisals that result in honest, accurate valuations and a more than fair price for your valuables. We are also transparent during the appraisal process and will answer any questions you have to make you feel comfortable and confident that you are getting top dollar for your valuables.
Once we have received, inspected, and verified your valuables, you will get paid the same day via your preferred payment method. We understand and appreciate that sellers often want (or need) money fast, which is why we pay you as soon as we can inspect and verify your valuables.
If you are looking for a buyer you can trust—and want to receive the highest payout for your coins, bullion, bars, or jewelry — consider selling to Precious Elements.
The first step to selling your valuables is to start a conversation. Contact Precious Elements online or give us a call to speak with one of our experts.

If you accept our estimated value, the next step is shipping us your valuables so we can verify quality, authenticity, and look for any additional characteristics or attributes that may indicate your coins, bullion, or piece of jewelry are worth more than market price. After we perform a hands-on inspection, we will provide you the final value offer for your valuables.
If you accept the offer, you will get paid the same day via your preferred payment method. If you are not satisfied for any reasons, we will send back your valuables with no shipping cost.
