I purchased my four £5 gold coins from Bullion by Post about three years ago and if I sold them based on gold prices at the time of writing I would barely make any profit whatsoever.
Before you accept an offer for your gold, take my advice and try and get a good idea of what yours is worth. Companies are going to want to make money, therefore they might not always offer you what your gold is really worth. Take my advice, shop around probably until you get the right offer for your precious metal.
The money saving expert forum and website is a great place to get advice on buying and selling gold. I bought gold myself and it's advisable that you get good advice before doing so because it's not always that easy to sell gold for what you bought it for. Buying lots of gold could easily result in you losing money if you are not careful.
I live on the south-west coast of England in a small town called Brixham. I been confined to a wheelchair 1986 after breaking my neck in a swimming pool accident. Computers are my saviour and I spend most days doing one thing or another on my PC. Other interests I have include angling and amateur radio. I also run a website and forum dedicated to looking after and caring for the Oscar fish cichlid
