One question that needs to be asked more often when people buy gold bullion is how to sell gold bullion. There is a process involved when you sell your metals, and it’s best that is understood before you buy.

Every situation is different, and you want to choose the most cost-effective and convenient way possible.

  • Private Sale:

    Precious metals are easy to sell in the free market if you can find a buyer. A large network of investors buy and sell precious metals and bullion products. Nearly every city has coin shows where you can meet highly knowledgeable merchants. There are also online forums where you can get information anonymously.

  • Online Dealer:

    These days, most investors buy and sell gold bullion through an online dealer. In most cases, you can call your broker and lock in a sale price on the spot. Another benefit is that you can handle the transaction privately and on your terms. The drawback is that you must pay shipping and insurance charges. The primary way to ship precious metals is through the US Postal Service.
