How to sell your gold

We purchase all the popular brands of bars and coins from around the world that originate from sovereign mints and private refineries recognised by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA). If the bullion is already held by GoldCore then it is very straightforward to sell using the online platform or by speaking to GoldCore's sales team.

Bullion held outside of GoldCore Secure Storage and the chain of integrity must be tested and authenticated before purchase. This applies to bullion both bought with GoldCore and bought elsewhere. Once authenticated, bullion will be accepted into GoldCore's secure storage and will appear in the client's account. At that stage the client can choose to keep the bullion in Secure Storage or to sell.

A trusted bullion dealer will make sure that their buyback price is determined by the market at time of sale.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I sell my gold to a scrap gold dealer?

If you own investment-grade bullion coins and bars, do not sell it to a gold scrap dealer or local jewellery store. To get a competitive price that is closest to the gold spot price, select a bullion dealer like GoldCore who makes markets every day and can guarantee liquidity for fast payment.

How do I sell my gold?

For more information on how to sell your gold and silver bullion conveniently, call us to speak to a GoldCore representative.

Can I sell some of my gold or do I have to sell it all?

You are not required to liquidate all of your holdings in one go. Depending on the bullion product you hold, you may be subject to minimums. For information specific to your holdings, please speak to the team.

How quickly can I sell my gold?

The speed of your sale depends on the type, location and amount of gold you are selling. For example - is it an LBMA-approved bar that has remained in the GoldCore Secure system? Or is it from a non-LBMA approved refinery and has been kept at home. These two instances would take different amounts of time to one another.

Can I sell my gold to buy silver?

You can sell your gold to buy silver but these would be seen as two separate transactions. You cannot do a direct exchange of gold for silver. The gold must be sold, with those cash proceeds you would then buy silver bars or silver coins.

What types of precious metals can I sell?

At GoldCore we will buy:

Gold and silver bars: PAMP, Metalor and Johnson Mathey are just some of the examples of refineries we accept bars from.

Gold and silver coins: We accept and make markets in bullion coins from government mints such as the US Mint, Royal Canadian Mint, Perth Mint, the Austrian Mint and the Royal Mint.

Are there any benefits to selling my gold or silver coins and bars to GoldCore?

At GoldCore we have direct access to the wholesale market, so we are always able to offer highly competitive prices.

Will I receive a quote before selling my precious metals?

Yes, we will provide you with a quote before selling your metals.

How do I get a competitive rate for selling my gold or silver?

Unlike other options for selling your gold, here at GoldCore we determine our buyback price by the market at time of sale.

How soon can I receive cash for my gold or silver?

Once you sell your gold or silver the funds will be returned to your GoldCore account, from this point you can request a withdrawal of funds back to your bank account. If you have provided all necessary documents then this will happen promptly.

Is there any obligation to sell my precious metals after getting a quote?

No, there is no obligation to sell your precious metals after receiving a quote.

How is the purity of my gold or silver coins or bars verified?

If you are selling bars or coins that have been kept within the bonded system then there will be no need for verification. If your bars or coins have been kept elsewhere, say, at home or in a vault outside of the bonded system then they will have to be brought or sent to one of our selected vaults in order to be verified. This is done via a series of internationally recognised and standardised checks carried out by professionals.
