Selling your silver and gold jewelry to a dealer is a great way to make extra cash. You can easily take broken pieces or items you no longer need and earn cash for your items based on the gold or silver content. But did you know that selling jewelry in Kitchener is just one way you can earn money for your silver and gold items? There are many things that are created from these precious metals that are worth a pretty penny. Knowing what dealers are interested in will help you to sell more of your collectibles for quick cash. Read on to learn more about examples of gold and silver products that are of interest to dealers.
Bars and Coins
Dealers are always looking to take gold and silver bars and coins off your hands. If you have any of these items, the dealer will be willing to take a look and offer you a quality price for what you have based on weight.
Cutlery & Dishware
Another unique item that dealers look for when it comes to silver and gold is cutlery and dishware. For many decades, it was customary for couples to receive silver and gold dishware and cutlery as gifts for the wedding. Many of these pieces are passed on to younger generations or perhaps you picked up a set of dishware during an auction. Either way, if you have any cutlery or dishware made from silver or gold, dealers are interested!
Some people even take their gold or silver dental fillings to a dealer and are paid in cash. This may seem odd but it is easy to come by such items, be it at an auction or you have the fillings yourself and no longer need or want them. Talk to a dealer to see if they are interested in your gold or silver dental pieces, sans teeth of course!
Tokens and War Medals
Another unique way that you can make money via silver and gold is with tokens or war medals. Auctions or estate sales often offer such items that are highly collectible. If you stumble across a collection of coins or war medals that are made from silver or gold, then you can earn money based on their metal content. Have such items appraised to see how much you can earn.
Do’s and Don’ts
No matter what type of gold or silver you have, there are a few do’s and don’ts to remember. Don’t clean any coins or medals as the natural look is more appealing. Do not wrap any coins in saran wrap as this can be damaging over time. Avoid keeping a collection in a basement where moisture or humidity can affect the pieces.
Do keep coins and other gold and silver items protected in a safe place. Have items checked on a regular basis for wear and tear. Use a stable environment where the temperature does not change in the extremes to avoid damage to your valuables.
