Selling Gold Coins in the Seacoast.

Selling gold coins is easy in the Seacoast area. Port City Coin and Jewelry can pay cash for your gold coins with the presentation of a valid ID. If you wish to sell gold coins here are some things to consider in order to make sure you get top dollar and the process goes smoothly:

Know your coins.

Most coins we purchase are based on their gold content as measured by weight, not carat. For example, one ounce American Gold Eagle coins are 22K (.9167 gold with the remainder of the coin a combination of silver and copper). The one ounce American Gold Eagle coin, however, contains one ounce of pure gold. The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coins are 24K gold and contain gold in the amounts stamped on them from 1/20, 1/10, 1/4, 1/2 and one ounce.

For soveriegn gold bullion coins like American Gold Eagles and Canadian Maple Leaf coins, we generally pay something close to the spot price of gold. You can get an indication of the current price of gold by checking it in the side bar to this blog post.

Some gold coins may carry with them numismatic value, for which we may be willing to pay a premium over the spot price of the coins. You may be able to get a higher price for such coins on ebay – or at least list them for a higher price. One issue with selling coins on ebay is that you may never get the price you wish or you may have to wait weeks or months to find a buyer. In addition, your buyer may complain about the coin he receives and request a refund. At Port City Coin & Jewelry we can pay you cash on the spot or issue you a check for your numismatic coins.

Selling Gold Jewelry in the Seacoast Area

Port City Coin & Jewelry also buys gold jewelry from Seacoast residents. Like gold coins, we buy gold jewelry mostly based on the gold content of the jewelry.

Know your jewelry

Gold jewelry can range from 9K (37.5% gold), 10K (41.7%), 14K (58.5%), 18K (75%), 22K (91.6%) or 24K (100%). We generally pay by weight. Most used costume gold jewelry items will sell somewhere around the value of the gold content. We will also assess the value of luxury gold jewelry (Tiffany, Cartier etc.) and either make and offer or advise on alternative methods of selling.

Not looking to sell your gold coins or jewelry but need cash? We also offer cash loans on gold items (valid ID required)
