Selling Gold

Your first step should be to get a free evaluation from someone you can trust. That’s why it’s important to come to Bellevue Rare Coins before you go anywhere else. We’ll explain how the evaluation process works, tell you how much your valuables are really worth, and answer any of your questions. And there is never any pressure to sell.

The value of what you bring to Bellevue Rare Coins usually depends on the amount of gold, silver or other precious metal in the item, but there are also the intrinsic value, collectibility and other factors that some businesses might not consider. Bellevue Rare Coins can determine the true value of the entire piece.

Bellevue Rare Coins is members of the top two coin certification and authentication services in the United States, the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).

The staff is comprised of people with decades of experience evaluating rare coins, currency, precious metals and heirloom jewelry. Bellevue Rare Coins is a family-owned business that’s been buying and selling coins and other valuables for over thirty years.

Some of the things that are regularly evaluated are gold, rare coins and coin collections, antiques, diamonds or other precious stones, chains, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, wristwatches, pocket watches, sterling silverware, flatware and serving ware and just about anything that contains gold, silver or platinum.

The Evaluation Process:

Step 1: Explain

We take the time to explain the evaluation process.

The entire process only takes a few minutes and is based on three factors: the condition, intrinsic value and current market prices. We will show you the weight and explain our calculations.

Step 2: Examine

We determine the weight and metal’s purity.

Most handmade jewelry has a stamp or identifying marker that indicates the amount, or purity, of the precious metal in the jewelry. If there isn’t a stamp, we have ways to determine the precious metal content.

Step 3: Assess

We consider the collectability, condition or intrinsic value.

A gold buyer might miss the value of the gemstones in your jewelry, which could exceed the gold value of the piece. We are experts at evaluating coins, jewelry and estate items.

Step 4: Offer

We make you an honest offer based on current market value.

If you accept our offer, you can walk out the door with cash or a check. You can also decline our offer and shop around town for a better offer. We think you’ll be back. But there is never any pressure to sell.
