We Provide Maximum Benefits:

We offer services that provide gold buyers with maximum benefits. These benefits include buying gold, selling, trading and placing in inventory at your convenience. Everything can be settlement based on the day of receipt of the metal. For all of our services, including refining gold, we provide immediate payment of your choice, upon request. We offer trade placer services for negotiable gold and/or silver. Not to mention, Oxford is always happy to help you sell your gold, silver, coins or other precious metals on the market of your choosing.

How to refine:

  • Walk into one of our locations and drop off your lot for refining.
  • Contact us for pre-addressed shipping boxes and other supplies. Ship your lot to our Anchorage facility along with a Refining Intake Form. USPS registered mail is the most secure way to ship to us.
  • The cost of shipping will be fully refunded as a credit to your account when lot is received.
  • Preliminary payment is available when metal is received with final payment to be determined after fire assay.

Materials we accept for refining:

  • Clean placer gold
  • Gold doré bars
  • Karat gold
  • Scrap Jewelry
  • Dental gold
  • Bench sweeps
  • Sterling Silver

Pricing options:

  • Lock in the price at the time of delivery (if market is available)
  • 2nd London fix price the day after lot is received for processing
  • Credit the metal weight to your pool account for pricing in the future. (No additional cost for this option)

Payment options:

  • Receive a check by mail
  • ACH Funds transfer directly to your bank account
  • Funds wire transferred directly to your bank account
  • In-kind trade for any of our bullion products

Assay services:

  • Fire Assay (cupellation) – We typically settle all lots using a Fire assay. This is the most accurate way to determine the purity of your metal.
  • X-ray fluorescence (XRF) – This is an option we can use to facilitate a quicker settlement for you. However this is not as accurate and your return will most likely be better using the fire assay.
