What We Buy

You may have a treasure sitting in your drawer.

At The Gold Center, we believe the best gold is already above ground. It’s not about mining for new gold and other precious metals; it’s about recycling old and unwanted items.


We pay you the highest price guaranteed for items made of gold, silver or platinum, no matter the condition. The value is in the precious metal content of your pieces. When the pieces are refined, the precious metals are recycled and turned into small beads. Those are then purchased and used by the jewelry industry, coin makers and Mints to craft new items and to make new coins.

We specialize in the purchase of gold, platinum, palladium,  precious stones, sterling and solid silver.

We are a full service precious metals dealer, if you have it, we’ll buy it, no matter the condition. And… it can be anything made of precious metals including some of the things you see listed below:
