What is Gold Buying?

Gold buying is the process of selling your gold and other precious metals of value for cash. 

Some people use gold buying services like Check City because they simply have some precious metals they would like to get rid of in exchange for cash. Others may use gold and precious metals as a form of investment, and as one of their assets. 

Having different investments, and different forms of valuable assets is a part of any healthy, diverse financial portfolio. 

Many people choose to get into the market of investing, buying, and selling gold and other precious metals, because gold has a very stable and long history as a valuable asset.  

Gold is valuable because:

  • It is a rare material 
  • It reflects light and is pleasing to the eye
  • It has a high resistance to heat 
  • It conducts electricity 
  • It is used in many industries like electronics, dentistry, and medical 

Silver is also valuable for its industrial uses:

  • Phones 
  • Computers
  • Electronic devices

Gold Investment Why Invest in Gold

The gold market is one of many great ways to invest in the future. Here is a comprehensive list of some of the many reasons investing in gold may be a good idea for you: 

  • 40% of gold each year goes to stockpiles and holds 
  • When the economy is bad gold’s value often goes up
  • Gold can be more sustainable in value than other assets
  • It has been a form of value and currency for a long time, making its continuing value reliable 
  • If you don’t trust paper currency 
  • Can protect from inflation and stock market declines
  • Can be used as flight capital in emergencies 

 

Asset Bubbles

Like all investments, gold can also have its disadvantages. The price of gold can fluctuate and crash as well as any other asset. 

However, as an asset gold has a strong potential for causing an asset price bubble. 

An asset bubble is when investors in gold bid up the price, creating an unsustainable spike in prices, resulting in an inevitable crash. 

What is the Gold Standard? 

The gold standard is when gold is used as money, whether directly or indirectly. It can be used directly as the form of currency, or it can be used indirectly when another form of currency, whether paper or coins, is tied to a value in gold.

The gold standard was initially created because it allowed for more lightweight coin and paper options to be used as currency instead of having to carry around heavier precious metals. The US went off the gold standard in 1971 when the value of the dollar began to stand on its own. 

How to Sell Gold 

Sell Gold

Like many cash for gold places, Check City uses the daily New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) market value to determine the value of the gold you want to sell on the day you want to sell it. 

NYMEX is part of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange & Chicago Board of Trade Group (CME Group). On their website you can see yearly projections for the price of gold to help you sell gold for the best price. 

But the best way to determine the exact cash for gold value of your gold is to bring it into a Check City Store near you to have it evaluated that same day by an expert. 

The person evaluating your gold’s value will look at the NYMEX gold prices that day, and then weigh your gold on a jeweler’s scale. Check City only uses “legal for trade scales” that are registered and tested by government inspectors. This ensures you will get the most money for your gold because the scales are properly calibrated and will accurately weigh your precious metals. 

Jeweler’s scales are sensitive and accurate scales that can weigh in grams and carats. It’s what the Check City representative will use to weigh the gold you want to sell so you can get cash for the gold you bring in. 
 
Scale Accuracy and Compliance:

Check City’s scales have been issued a Certificate of Conformance and are registered with the Utah State’s Weights & Measures Program Unit. Check City’s scale models are approved for commercial use and meet the standards found in NIST Handbook 44 G-UR.1.1 Suitability of Equipment and Uniform National Type Evaluation. 

Before the scales are placed into service, Check City requests verification from a State of Utah Weights & Measures official. Once the State Inspector approves the scale and deems it properly calibrated, the Inspector will issue a certification label that is placed on the scale. 

Check City undergoes regular unannounced Utah State Inspections at each of our store locations to ensure our scales are correctly positioned and properly calibrated. Check City’s compliance with the State of Utah, Weights and Measures Program, ensures your gold is weighed precisely.
 
Licensing and Registration:

Each of Check City’s store locations are licensed to purchase gold. Check City stores are registered with the Utah Department of Commerce, Division of Consumer Protection and comply with all applicable laws and regulations. 

Selling your gold to a reputable company that complies with state laws and regulations helps ensure your rights are protected and that you will be treated honestly when selling your gold.  

How to Figure Out Your Gold’s Value

Check City uses the daily New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) market value to determine the value of the gold you want to sell on the day you want to sell it. The NYMEX is part of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange & Chicago Board of Trade Group (CME Group) and on their website, you can see for yourself their projections of gold prices for this year. 

However, the best way to determine the exact value of your gold is to bring it into a Check City Store near you to have it evaluated that same day by an expert.
