Sheesh, it sounds like I done the right thing by selling off when I did, but that's when the silver market went bonkers in the Summer/Fall of 1980. If the scruples have gotten that bad, I'm glad I got out when I did, then yeah a refinery would be your best. At least I got compensated well for the silver I dumped (all junk silver-dimes quarters and halves I saved over 15 years. Came in handy as my Cobra insurance expired as I was on long term layoff. Wait a sec- that's going on today with everybody!

I would deffo sugest ebay. At least people will generally pay spot price for scrap gold.
It's now a good time to sell ($1700)+ oz at present.
Just out of curiosity, are you selling coins & jewelry, or have you been panning the creeks?

Default selling gold

I would like to add my two cents to this topic. You can sell gold to any local pawn shop. The trick is to know what you have before you go example how much weight and what karet when you have this info go to gold price.org and look for the calculators there you will see current price for 1 gram or penny weight of say 14 K gold then when you have that price do not ecept anything lower then 80% of that price. Most places will offer 50-60% of what the price should be. They use the stupid factor to make money. After you recieve there offer take out your paper with your figures and tell them what you expect to get for your gold and like magic they will recalculate. Hope this helps everyone that wants to sell gold.

They are also knowledgeable about gold and consider anything less than 22 carat as junk.

Look at [url=http://www.musselmanjewelers.com]Musselman Jewelers - Sell Gold - Engagement Rings - Custom Jewelry - Downtown Denver[/url]. I sold my gold there last month and they gave me the best price, I am planning on going there before gold prices drop.

You can post on Craigslist and a private buyer will contact you. They have their own testing equipment and will pay 80%+ of the spot price. Only meet at a public place or they will just bonk you over the head and take your gold.

When I did this, no one was interested in the fact it was beautiful jewelry. Go figure.

You might want to check out www.kitco.com get the prices and then go down to Broadway and go door to door. The old shops are best. Of course they will check you out, then offer around $20 less than spot. Would be careful never to park where they can get a car tag number. Otherwise, someone will follow you home.

A gold/silver convention is better to get muliple bidders.
Honesty, your crazy for selling gold before an election where there will be the realization of our massive debt. The 1 ounce coin you sell today will be worth another $1,000 of paper money about Feb 2013. Prices are cheap given what paper money supply is being held back right now.

Kitco is not the only place. But, they are convenient.

I saw a gold buyer documentary last weekend, concerning Denver buyers. It seems that you have to beware of selling gold. I found an interesting source about selling gold in Denver (Source:click)
