Heraeus Scrap Refining guarantees fair market value for your precious metals (gold, platinum, palladium and silver). Settlement is based on the London PM prices on the day of assay valuation. You can be paid in either gold and silver investment coins or with a check in the mail. This is the most cost-effective way to recycle your investment in precious metal alloy.

Why should you cash in your scrap on a regular basis?


Scrap is unaccountable. Regular, frequent shipments allow you to keep track of your assets


Precious scrap is not liquid until you cash it in. Raw scrap collects dust, not interest


Scrap stashes are not insured. Insurance companies will not reimburse in the event of fire or theft
