What’s Your Gold Worth?

How Gold is Priced 

The gold rate in the USA is a defining metric for how gold is priced. To understand how the value of gold is determined, you have to start with the basics of gold being a commodity — a precious metal or agricultural product that can be bought or sold. 

Outside of the economics of market demand, gold purity and the weight of your gold (measured in troy ounces which is slightly different from baking ounces) are the two main factors in determining the gold price in the USA today

Purity is quantified as a karat to calculate the best price. The general karat value of gold is quantified in the following:

  • 24k: 99% purity 
  • 18k: 75% purity
  • 14k: 58.5% purity
  • 9k: 37.5% purity

For weight, gold prices are set by pure (24k) troy ounces, which is equal to 31.1 grams. Pure gold is extremely heavy, but as purity decreases, the materials used may also impact weight and overall value.

At Cash for Gold USA, we determine the pricing based on its purity and weight to offer you the best deal. If you’re wondering what the price of gold today in the US, contact us today.
