How We Operate

We are a pawn shop offering several services. What does this mean? 

Because we are a pawn shop, as well as bullion and coin buyer, we can offer smaller margins when you sell gold and silver to us – saving you money!

We value based on gram weight not troy ounces and current market prices. 

Gold Prices and Silver prices change based on the live market price, and our offer for your Gold and Silver will fluctuate with the market.

Depending on your item(s), we can pay up to 105% of the Gold Price or Silver Price at our Boise, Meridian and Nampa Store.

Want to purchase gold and silver. We have a text notification list only used for Gold and Silver stock alerts. this keeps you informed about all gold and silver available.

Bullion & Coins FAQ

We value precious metals based on the current market value. There are several types of gold and silver such as; 10k, 14k, 18k, 22k, Pure, 585, 750, 800, 925, and Sterling. These types typically identify the percentage of gold or silver in your item. For example, 14k means 58.5% gold where 22k means 91% gold. The purer your gold or silver, the more we pay. We pay between 70-97% on the value of your precious metal.

We buy all gold & silver bullion & coins even if they aren’t stamped. If they do not have silver or gold, we will still take a look to see if there is value for the purchase. If your coin is authentic NGC and PCGS graded we will make an offer.

We do not conduct acid tests. 95% of our tests are nonintrusive using our X-Ray Testing. When a heavy plate is possible on jewelry we will have to scratch the item to get a quality test. We never have to scratch test on bullion or coins, and use a nonintrusive test as long as the purity is 90%+

There is no limit to how much you can sell. We regularly buy $10-100k lots for clients.

We will test your gold, silver, or other precious metal bullion and coins for free.

A customer exchanges an item as collateral for a short-term cash loan. The item is returned to the customer after the loan amount and interest fees are paid. Sometimes, when a customer needs an extension on paying their loan, the item is held longer and the customer agrees to extend the terms of the loan for an additional length of time.

The Process:

-Customers bring in an item of value.

-Pawnbroker offers a loan based on a percentage of the item’s estimated resale value.

-The pawnbroker then keeps the item until the customer repays the loan with interest and any additional fees that may apply.

We offer pawn term arrangements as low as 35% APR Interest Rate on $20,000+ Pawns.

The loan repayment is based on a 1, 2 or 3 month repayment period with no maximum repayment period.
