Gold is famous for retaining its value; it is considered a secure way for investors to protect their wealth for the long-term. Whilst many investors typically hold onto their gold bullion for a considerable length of time, there are of course occasions where individuals need to sell gold bars quickly to release capital.

So how do you go about this if you hold physical gold?

How to sell gold bars

Buying gold is a way of protecting your wealth from the instability of other more volatile markets, such as fiat money or stocks and shares. It isn’t typically a fast-moving market and returns are gradual. 

If you’re looking to make a quick profit from buying and selling gold barsit’s likely that you’ll be disappointed. Gold prices are historically relatively steady and so experienced investors who buy gold do so knowing they’ll be in it for the long-term.

Tracking live gold prices is a good place to start if you’re thinking of selling gold bars as it will give you an overview of the current state of the market. If gold is in high demand and prices are on the up, you should find it much easier to sell gold bullion bars for at least the price you paid or, ideally, more. Needless to say, the larger your investment, the more opportunities there are for cashing in on price hikes.

When you’re looking to sell gold bars, it’s important to consider the additional costs involved in buying, holding and selling gold, such as storage costs, packaging and delivery. To make a sale worthwhile, you should weigh up these costs alongside your original purchase price and the price a buyer is offering you.

Where to sell gold bars

There’s a range of places, both online and off, where you can sell gold bullion bars and you’ll find that many distributors will often buy back gold at a slightly reduced rate of their current sale price. These distributors will usually buy back gold they originally sold to you at a higher rate than they would if the gold came from elsewhere, so buying from a respected and well-trusted dealer will generally increase your chances of achieving a better sale price in the future.

In order to ensure you get the best possible price for your gold bars, we recommend that you take the time to source quotes from several places as well as considering the additional fees involved.
