Right now is a great time to sell platinum

1 April 2020

PLEASE NOTE that we ONLY sell gold that we PHYSICALLY have in stock. Our position is changing all the time, so you will need to call us for up-to-date availability. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer wholesale deals to the trade - strictly retail only. We have Krugerrands and Sovereigns available for immediate delivery.

Coronavirus Statement


Our POSTAL service remains FULLY operational.

In-line with UK Government instruction, our counter service is now CLOSED until further notice. If you have recently purchased bullion from us, we will be in-touch to offer you the option of UK vaulted storage until such time you're able to collect it, or shipping to you via Special Delivery. Please DO NOT try to collect it.

If you are selling scrap gold, silver or gold bullion, our postal service remains operational for sales of standard scrap, bullion and coins. We are unable to offer a 'melt & assay' service until further notice. Advice from Public Health England confirms that Coronavirus does not survive for long on parcels and packaging, therefore our online service will continue to operate. We can also confirm that Royal Mail has extensive contingency planning in place to ensure their delivery network remains operational. You can read their statement here.

Scrap Platinum Prices UK

Our scrap platinum rates for Wednesday 1 April.

Prior to 1975, there was no requirement for an item of jewellery containing platinum to be hallmarked and no common standard regarding purity. Therefore, older pieces of jewellery may simply have a 'plat', 'pt' or 'platinum' markings. These pieces will need to be tested by us to determine the platinum content.

There are now four accepted levels of purity for platinum, as shown in the table on the right.

Typical items we purchase that containin platinum include:

We accept all purities of platinum. Our platinum prices are the same for hallmarked and non-hallmarked items. Testing is usually completed on the day of receipt and for customers who elect to have payment into their bank account, funds are transferred by 6pm on the same day.

Here are the scrap platinum prices we're paying to our customers today:
