If you’re in Dallas and you’re thinking of selling gold, there are a number of options. This is the same for other large metro area as well. The cash for gold phenomenon has not died.
You can use number one the vocal community, you can find Craigslist, you could look for classified ads, and you could also go into the coin shops or pawnshops.
The way to approach any of these options is to first and foremost understand why you’re selling. If you’re selling to raise cash because you’re in a situation where you need the cash right now then you’re better suited to go to a coin dealer where you can establish some sort of relationship. If you’re in a situation where you feel like well you have this goal gold seems like it’s going to go down some more and you just inherited it so you don’t really understand its value then I would urge one to investigate some of the fundamentals of owning or holding precious metals before selling it.
Buying gold back from a dealer will come with a premium and most of the time you won’t get the spot value from the dealer, depending on what kind of gold or silver it is. If they’re gold or bullion coins then you will probably be able to get at least the spot price - sometimes more - but if they’re premium coins that were originally paid for with the high premium then it’s very unlikely that you’ll get the full price (spot price).
It is one stealth indicator of how well the US economy is really doing when you compare the action of the mainstream US with a bias to liquidate compared to the mainstream Chinese with a bias to buy on the dips.
Some stores are leftover from the movement where cash for gold signs were seen everywhere, bright signs with "we buy precious metals". There were kiosks in malls, and though you see less of that now, it’s still around.
If you’re in the Dallas area, it’s one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country. It’ll be easy for you to find places just by typing in “Sell gold Dallas” you’ll be able to find plenty of them.
