Gold, Our Favorite Metal
If you’ve ever google searched what is gold, I am sure you have come across many technical answers as to what gold is. Some common answers are that gold is the atomic number 79 and has a yellowish coloring. Although this is true, gold is so much more than an atomic number we learned about in 8th grade science, it is a commodity used to back the value of currency around the world. Gold is unique because of all that it can be; a rare metal, beautiful jewelry and of course money!
The Value of our Favorite Metal
According to Monex, much of the value that comes from gold is due to the scarcity of the metal. Research has suggested that the world’s holding of gold throughout history adds up to about 120,000 metric tons. Due to its uniqueness, gold investors place value on the metal for different reasons such as:
- Investment/ Savings
Depending on the reason for acquiring or selling gold, investors see gold a precious metal.
Like other precious metals, the value of gold fluctuates throughout the day while reacting to economic events. Around the world gold is directly affected by the relationship between the number of sellers and the number of buyers.
One of the major benefits to pawning gold is the fast cash! If you need money quickly but also want to keep your precious coin or jewelry you can. Another perspective is, if you’re selling gold, you have something that people want so selling is to your advantage. Here are a few things to consider before selling:
- Know the CURRENT Value of Gold:
As we mentioned before, the value of gold fluctuates. Your best bet is to use a baseline to determine the price of your gold
- Know the Karat of Your Gold:
The karate of your gold is how purity is measured. 24 Karate, pure gold is so soft it can be bitten into. If you’re selling a gold ring, the karat is typically engraved on the inside of the band.
- Don’t Mix Karats:
When pawning gold, it is imperative to keep all gold pieces separated specifically by karat. Be 100% certain to how much each karat of gold is in your collection. If you need help determining Karats, have your back, just call and ask!

Did you know, the price of gold is at a general all-time high since the financial crisis of 2008? In response to the crisis, gold hit a whopping $1,895 an ounce in September 2011… crazy huh? Regardless of the price of gold, it will always remain extremely valuable in society simply because it has for over 3,000 years already.
Now, gold isn’t valuable just because it is shiny and makes your girlfriend really happy (although those would be valid reasons). Instead, gold is valuable because of its chemical properties, its timeless appeal, its long term store of value, and the fact it has no counterparty risks. Basically what all this means is that gold is very hard to be destroyed, it is aesthetically pleasing, and its value cannot fall to zero. Would you agree these all seem like great reasons to invest in some gold? Now, we’re not expecting you to get out there, get your leprechaun game on and attempt to find a pot of gold under some illusionary rainbow, because we’ve already done all that for you.
Yankee Peddler and Pawn is feeling luckier than ever this March due to our wide selection of gold we have here for our customers, you guys! Our inventory is spread across our three locations in Groton, East Hartford and New London, and consists of pieces from name brands like Tiffany & Co., Michael Kors and Rolex. Every piece of jewelry has been appraised by our own professional leprechauns. So stop in today, you never know what you’ll find!
