All gold and precious metal valuations are carried out by our qualified in-house valuer who’ll always give you the best possible market offer. Valuations are no obligation and free of charge.

Appraisal Considerations:

  • Accepted Metals
    Gold bullion, gold coins, scrap gold, 9ct, 18ct, 22ct, 24ct, platinum, palladium and sterling silver.
  • Carat Purity and Weight

  • Daily Gold Spot Price
    The percentage of gold within an item valued against the daily gold spot price.

The best process for securing a loan against your gold and precious metals is to fill out an Apply Now form including:

  • item description.
  • picture/s.
  • valuation certificate and/or receipt.
  • any other relevant information.

Once we receive your application, we’ll make a valuation and loan offer subject to viewing the item.
