Selling Gold & Silver to Pacific Precious Metals

At Pacific Precious Metals we make a market in almost any bullion or numismatic item so there is a very high probability that we will buy any item that you want to sell. Our owners and staff are happy to assist you when you need to sell bullion or numismatic coins. You can either bring the items in person or ship them to us.

We buy gold, silver, platinum, and palladium in coins, rounds and bars. You can see our buy price for any many of our items on each individual coin or bar page. Pricing is determined by market forces which includes the gold or silver spot price, the condition of your item, as well as the demand for specific products.

However, even if there is no demand for the product you have, it will have an underlying value for its gold, silver, platinum or palladium content with our refiners. So, no matter what type or size of gold, silver, platinum or palladium coins or bars you have, drop by for a quote or give us a call.

The process is fast and transparent. We explain everything we are doing each step of the way. A few items will only take 5-10 minutes from start to finish.
