There are many methods that one could use to sell silver. The easiest one to find a local coin shop or even a local pawn dealer and bring the silver and find out how much you can get for it. Buying online is a little more complicated and can range from either going onto eBay or, you could go to Craigslist or, you can even look at some of the major precious metals dealers who will often buy back silver.
Now, it also depends on what kind of silver you are selling and it is very important to get an idea of what you have and what it might be worth. For example, many people find they want to sell their sterling silver which is actually not the worst type of silver to sell because it still holds a fair amount of silver values especially the handle of the knife or fork for example.
In that case, you can do some research ahead of time and look on to eBay to see what is sellng. There are lots of website out there but eBay would be a good place to start to find out what kind of sterling silver you have and also what the price is likely to be for what you could get for it.
You can open up your own eBay account and become a seller yourself where you can actually contact people who are already selling or even people who are buying. You can find them on Craigslist and find a good deal that way. You may want to also just walk in to a local coin dealers and see if you can get some information from the dealer themselves who will give you an idea of what you might get. You need to expect that you will get below market price if you sell it on person or online. If you have a sterling silver that’s in really good shape that it’s full set and it’s a set that people tend to want to collect then obviously you’re going to receive more for it.
Selling silver coins and bullion is a little bit different and little bit easier in some ways and you get a little bit more for the money or for the silver, but cash for gold or, cash for silver stores, and Kiosks are still available for people who want to sell who want to sell the metal. If you have bullion coins, actually a bullions can refer to silver that really doesn’t have a collector value associated with it. Sometimes American Silver Eagles or Canadian Maple Leafs is considered bullion. It can also mean just generically produce silver rounds and if you walk into a cash for gold or cash for silver store you are likely to actually get pretty close to the spot value or, the spot price or, the current price or, the current world prices of silver or, maybe a little bit below or, depending on where the market is you may even get a little bit more for the little more than the spot price of silver.
Again, it is very important to identify what you’re going to sell then know the different places that you can go to sell. Probably the best thing is to prepare ahead of time and know generally what you’re going to get so that you can tell if you are actually going to get a good deal. You can learn a lot from the particular dealer that you’re working with based on your prior knowledge going in to the transaction, but selling silver online which is the keyword of this article is fairly easy to do and probably the best thing would be to look for local listings and see if any people who are buying locally.Back to Silver Coins Home
