Frequently Asked Questions

How much will U.S. Gold Bureau pay me for my precious metals?

Since bullion is a commodity, our purchase price is related to the current spot price of the metal, as determined by the Commodities Exchange (COMEX). We generally buy at or near the current spot price, depending on the exact item and market demand. The exact payout price for your items will be clearly listed with each product, no matter which method is used to locate them. Please keep in mind, payout prices will fluctuate in line with current Market rates until your payout is locked. For a complete list of the items we buy with their adjusted price index, visit our Payouts Catalog

When does my payout price for my gold or silver get locked?

You will be guided through a short series of tasks to identify the items you want to sell, verify your identity, and properly pack your box. Your payout price will be locked when the mailing label is created. At this time you will have 48 hours to ship your item(s) to maintain the locked price.

What if the precious metal I wish to sell isn’t listed?

Although we have a list of items that we are actively buying, we are happy to consider all precious metals. Give us a call at 800-775-3504 if you would like to discuss a particular unlisted item. Please note that the United States Gold Bureau does not buy scrap metal, jewelry, or other items such as dental implants.

What do I need to get started?

Before starting the process, please have the following items handy:

  • Blank check (or your account number and bank's routing number)
  • Government-issued photo ID (you can upload a photo or scanned image, or send it from your mobile device)
  • Digital camera or mobile device to take a photo of your shipment for verification purposes
  • Proper box, tape and packing materials
