Gold & Silver Bullion Products
We purchase most common gold and silver 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".
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 typically 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).
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.
Furthermore, if you choose to spend the entire payout amount on silver or gold bullion products we will increase the final payout by 5%. (Gold and/or silver purchase must be made at the time of the refining transaction).
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.
Important: There is a 5 gram minimum for selling scrap gold with the exception of dental gold (crowns, bridges, etc.). Since most rings, braclets and necklaces are at least 5 grams (or very close) there is no need to weigh those items before visiting the store. We will purchase any of those items individually.
