Gold, Silver & Platinum Bullion Products
We purchase most common gold, silver and platinum products at very competitive prices including but not limited to gold coins, gold bars, silver coins, silver bars and silver rounds. Offers will be based on current market prices (spot price) and the type of product and condition. All products will be tested and validated as genuine before purchasing and all completed purchases are final.
Important: Due to market fluctuations, current inventory levels and changes in wholesaler buy prices we may not buy certain products at any given time. We recommended that you call us (817-485-2646) before visiting our store with precious metals to sell.
90% Silver Coins
U.S. minted dimes, quarters and half dollars prior to 1965 that have no numismatic (collectible) value due to wear or damage from circulation are considered 90% silver coinage or "junk silver".
Miscellaneous Silver Coins
In addition to the 90% silver coins we also purchase 40% Kennedy half dollars dated from 1965-1970. Jefferson nickels that are dated 1942-1945 are what we refer to as “war nickels” which contain a small amount of silver and we purchase those as well.
Common Date Circulated Silver Dollars
Common date circulated silver dollars are similar to junk silver in that they are U.S minted 90% silver coins, but they are bought and sold for more than just their inherent silver value due to popularity. We purchase morgan and peace silver dollars at four dollars less than we sell them for (see our 90% Silver page for our current retail prices).
Gold Jewelry & Diamonds
C R Coins offers refining services on gold jewelry products only such as rings, necklaces, bracelets etc. What separates our refining services from many of our competitors is the process that we use in validating the purity (or karat) of the jewelry as well as determining the price.
First, we use technology based devices to validate the gold purity so that the customer can see the test results for themselves. Many companies still use the old scratch test method with acids and interpret the results as they see fit. Unless, you know how to read the test results yourself, you have to accept their conclusions. In other words, if someone determines that your item is 14 karat gold when it is actually 18 karat gold, your payout will be significantly less.
Secondly, all refining payouts are calculated by our proprietary software program that simply uses the current market price of gold, the karat of the items and the weight to generate consistent payouts. There is no need to negotiate for the best deal since every customer is treated exactly the same.
Every part of the process is always done in front of the customer and there is no obligation to sell. If you have stones, we will also be happy to test, remove and return them if they are large enough to do so without damaging.
In addition to purchasing your gold jewelry we also will buy your diamonds. Similar to the gold process we will assess the quality of your diamond(s) and make an offer based on size, quality, clarity, etc. The offer on the diamonds is done separately from the gold so you have the choice to sell only your gold, only your diamonds or both.
Semi precious stones such as rubys, emeralds, etc. can have a vast difference in value based on many factors. We don’t buy these type of stones and recommend that you take them to an experienced jeweler or a gemologist for evaluation. However, we will gladly remove these stones if you wish to sell your jewelry for it's gold content and return the stones to you.
