“Selling Gold? Shop around.” | November 19, 2009
Excerpts from the original article:
“Save time by calling around to ask what a retailer is paying that day per gram or pennyweight for 14-karat gold (or 10K or 18K depending on the piece). If they won’t say, go elsewhere. In my comparison Nov. 9-10, pennyweight prices ranged from $16 at Gold Guys to $25 at Wixon for 14-karat gold.”
“I took the pieces to five dealers on Nov. 9 and 10 when gold prices were at $1,100 per ounce. The lowest price paid for all five pieces was $1,264 by the Gold Guys at Mall of America. The highest price was $1,677 at Grove Coin in Woodbury, but the total was skewed by the higher coin value. Without the coin, Wixon Jewelers in Bloomington paid the highest on each of the four items.“
