Information for selling gold FAQ: the most frequent asked questions

We buy every type of material containing precious metals (gold and/or silver and/or platinum and/or palladium) such as gold bars and coins, gold plates, gold jewelry no longer in use and of any caliber or size.
No problem! Italian law obliges to keep any goods firm for any checks, so after this 10-day period we will carry out a merger so as to send a single analysis to our laboratory which will proceed to the determination of the real precious metal content (gold and/or silver and/or platinum and/or palladium) in the objects of different caliber received and will be contacted for the communication of the outcome and the net final value that we will recognize by bank transfer directly to your bank account.
After an appropriate laboratory analysis, the pure gold content is determined, which will be valued at the precious metal price. To give you an example, out of 100 grams of used jeweler, which are generally 18 carat (750/1000), this means that there are 75 grams of pure gold content which we value at the price of Euro/gram 51.13 (Thursday, 30 July 2020 at 17:53), the net we will transfer is Euro 3834.75 directly to your bank account. You can calculate the recognized value via the Online Estimator. The Online Estimator assigns a lower value than the real one, because there may be stones and non-gold objects that end up being melted down. Please note that there are treatment costs to be deducted from the web quote. And they are 100€ (for Gold and Silver), and 300€ (for Platinum and Palladium).

Each precious metal object must contain the so-called legal trademarks: the trademark of the legal title (our ingots report 999) and the trademark of the authorized producer which is issued by the metric office of the competent Chamber of Commerce (in our case, Chamber of Commerce of Milan and our trademarks is MI1748).
If the price of the precious metal has been blocked and defined in the online booking, it is not possible to withdraw as our company has engaged with other companies on the national and/or international market to guarantee the promised price. If the price of the precious metal has NOT been defined and contracted, it is possible to request the return of your material after the 10-day compulsory administrative stop period; Any costs incurred such as shipping and costs incurred for the enhancement of products such as melting and chemical laboratory analysis will be charged. After the administrative stop and as specified in the contract, the objects may no longer be in the state in which they were delivered as the analysis procedure may require cutting or partial or total destruction of the objects.
You can also come to our premises by appointment. Otherwise, you can do the operation online 24/7 without having to come to our offices in Milan or Pero.

The price of precious metals indicated in newspapers or on official websites is the world reference price set daily by 4 members of the LBMA ( London Bullion Market Association ) in London since 1919 ( The Bank of Nova Scotia - Scotia Mocatta, HSBC, Deutsche Bank AG, Société Générale and Barclays Bank PLC ).
This price is set in $ US per troy ounce , since the euro has been in force, however, we can also find it expressed in this currency. The price called FIXING has a purely statistical reference value.
During the day the prices of precious metals then follow the indications of the world stock exchanges in Zurich , New York , Hong Kong and Singapore so that metal can be treated 24 hours a day and that large industries and manufacturers all over the world use to establish their selling and buying prices.
Each Precious Metals Bank then applies its own purchase and sale price, which takes into account the fees for management, property, insurance and processing.
