Scrap Gold Calculator

Our easy and free scrap gold calculator will let you estimate the high melt value of your scrap gold in minutes. We calculate the value of your items by weight and purity rather than resale value. That means the higher the purity and heavier the items, the more they’re worth!
For example, the purity of gold is determined as the following:

  • 24k (karat) is 99% pure gold. 
  • 22k is 91% pure. 
  • 18k is 75% pure gold. 
  • 14k is 58% pure. 
  • 10k is 41.6%.

The History of Scrap Metal

The term “scrap gold” actually originates from the word “scraps,” meaning the recyclable parts and components leftover when manufacturing products. Scrap gold and scrap silver are common byproducts when manufacturing electronic components, high-end jewelry, mirrors and even dental scrap. When manufacturing jewelry, jewelers often melt and grind precious metals down to add shape or create artistic pieces.
During this process, precious metal grinding and shavings are left in the crucible or jeweler’s bench. This fine gold and silver dust would be considered “scrap.” Often, it’s very pure and worth a lot of money.
However, over the years, the terms “gold scrap” and “silver scrap” have come to mean precious metal items (like jewelry, sterling silver items, broken gold links, or dental scrap) that people no longer have use for.
Because it makes sense to recycle and refine these items due to the metal’s high return on the open market, sending scrap gold and silver to Cash for Gold USA allows people who are unable to refine their own materials to cash in on their belongings with relative ease.
