WHO TO SELL YOUR GOLD BULLION AND COINS TO
First things first: jewelry stores, pawn shops, and other local options may be your clearest path to turning your gold into fiat currency, but they also certainly will not be able to offer its full value.
You should also avoid dealing with strangers or lone individuals; it’s much better to be safe than sorry when it comes to trusting people you’ve never met before around your precious metals and rare coins.
This is why dealing with a major online bullion dealer who has a proven track record, such as Nationwide Coins, is your best bet. A good dealer will have a standard process that includes getting a deposit beforehand and reserving the right to reject or approve upon inspection. You ship your gold out, get the quote, and receive fiat currency in the standard amount of time depending on how you choose to transfer it.
This method obviously takes a little more time, but it is likely to yield a higher premium on your gold bullion and coins! If you’re Internet-savvy you might also try to sell them online yourself, such as on eBay, but this will also probably take time, and on top of that, you’ll be dealing with a stranger who hasn’t earned your trust.
HOW TO SHIP YOUR GOLD OUT FOR INSPECTION
The most important recommendation for how to sell your gold bullion and coins to an online dealer is to use USPS Registered Mail when you ship it off to inspection. Up to $25,000.00 of insurance per Registered Mail parcel is available, which FedEx or UPS don’t offer for precious metals.
Post office employees don’t know your business so they may attempt to save you money by suggesting that you ship by the cheaper Insured Mail. Don’t do this. For some reason, USPS has a clause in their policy that states they do not honor insurance for lost precious metals unless Registered Mail is the method of shipment. Enjoy peace of mind when shipping your gold bullion, coins, and precious metals by USPS Registered Mail.
