You'll see the wording 'scrap gold' used on our website and elsewhere, but don't think of this as a demeaning phrase. It's a generic term used within the industry to describe unwanted gold which can be reused or recycled through melting down and re-refining.

Scrap differs from conventional waste in that scrap retains a monetary value, usually from the residual metal within it. For scrap gold, its monetary value is its precious metal content. It doesn't matter what condition it's in - if it's made of gold, we'll make an offer to buy it.

For example, we treat pre-owned gold jewellery as scrap gold. Parts could be damaged, unwearable or tarnished. Take a permanently broken 9ct gold watch: its intended purpose is no longer of any use unless you're satisfied with being able to tell the time correctly just twice a day. But you can salvage the gold value from the watch by selling it to a reputable dealer, such as us. Providing the watch passes our XRF testing machine, we'll make you a fair and competitive offer, based on the watch's scrap gold content.

Gold Traders UK is one of the few gold dealers that do not give different quotes for hallmarked and non-hallmarked gold. We offer the same, fair rate for both, giving you the best deal possible. Below you'll see dedicated price calculators for the most popular gold carat types in the UK. Use it to compare our rate against other dealers - we offer over 95% of the market value on scrap gold.
