This Week’s Gold Seller Question:

What is a good price for dental gold scraps by the gram?

Answer From: San Diego Jewelry Buyers

Depending on the gold purity of your dental scraps, we would be paying you roughly between $10.00 and $20.00 per gram. Let me explain how that works: Dental gold scraps can vary in actual karat rating (gold purity) from between 40% gold content all the way up to as high as 80%. So, for example, if gold is trading on the market at $900 per troy ounce, and your scraps tested at 40% gold purity, then we would be paying you $9.83 per gram. If your scraps tested at 80% gold purity, then we would be paying you $19.67. These figures are calculated at 85% of gold’s current trading price, to leave room for operating and refining costs, and to cover risk of gold prices taking a sudden drop. These figures are based on the assumption that you have only a small quantity of gold (less than one ounce), but in case you have a lot of dental gold we sometimes pay higher for larger quantities.

We tell customers that the best thing to do is come into our office so that we can test the karat rating of their dental gold scraps, and let us make them an offer.
