Note: I truly believe the machines I own are the best most accurate analyzers of gold, silver ,platinum and palladium and most elements from sodium on available. Do not trust an xrf gun for accurate measurements of placer gold or fine jewelry. they are not even close to precise compared to our equipment. You get what you pay for. My competitors have guns and cheap electronic but they are trying to copy us which they have no chance of doing. It is apples and oranges. The guns are primarily designed for scrap yards not precious metals. Do not sell anything without coming to us after anywhere else. Make us your stop after checking around. We can and do beat them all.

We have the most advanced x-ray fluorescent spectrometers in this part of the country. No one else can perform such a complete accurate analysis of your metals for such a small fee and in so little time. We furnish you a printed report that gives the exact content of your jewelry, sample or placer gold so you can demand top dollar without guessing or reliance on the primitive, subjective acid test. Our appraisals and estimates are many times free on gold jewelry, scraps, and coins. If you don't know if it's real or not, visit us and find out your items value before you sell. Come to us after you've seen the other guys, we won't be beaten on legitimate deals! We believe in helping out the small guys and gals. We will use our x-ray spectrometer on your items for free if payment to you will be less than two hundred dollars. Our method will always give you more money than our competitor’s acid test method.

Idahoans now have a place to sell your gold locally and get payment immediately. save on melting, assay, refining, shipping, insurance, check charges, etc. we process your gold here in Boise so we are not reliant on anyone else to melt, refine and or assay your gold. Don’t mail your items away; the general public can also eliminate the middle man by dealing with us. Come by in person for details or to open an account with us. We test, weigh, and do our calculations right in front of you in simple English so you will know you are not getting taken. We use several test methods to narrow down your gold content, nothing is just 10, 14, or 18kt. we are more accurate. We are completely honest and transparent. I have seven years of college and am trained as a scientist. I have 23 years of actual experience as a gold and silver refiner, having owned my own precious metals and jewelry business for 36 years. We are true precious metals dealers; we have a large inventory at our bank locally and will have your items to you usually within minutes not days. Come see the difference.

Contact us anytime with questions or comments

We diligently follow the laws of the United States of America and those of the state of Idaho, Many aspects of anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism apply to the precious metals industry. Due to the nature of our business, we prefer all large transactions are made with traceable secure funds, wires, or cashiers checks.  Please do not ask, imply or even hint to us about breaking any law or bending rules. I will not jeopardize my freedom or finances for any reason or anyone. Be clear about that.

We strive to be the biggest and the best precious metals dealer in Idaho. We are discount brokers on larger transactions of precious metals. I was a stock broker in the eighties , just like then, I take your order and fulfill that order with through one of the oldest and most respected supplier of precious metals in the world,  Amark. Since I get your money up front and have very little risk I pass that savings on to you with the following fee schedule

For orders over $15,000, min 10 oz gold  we charge above our cost of gold + 2% silver 3%
For orders over $25,000, 10 oz of gold or more we charge above our cost 1.5%, silver 2%
For orders over $50,000 we charge above our cost 1.25% silver 1.5%

For orders over $100,000 we charge above our cost 1% gold or silver
For orders over $500,000 we charge above our cost .5% gold or silver
For orders over $1 million we charge above our cost .25%
gold or silver

amounts for discounted fees are computed
on purchase price before commissions

When acting as your broker, I do not mark up anything from the charge from Amark except for the transaction fee based on the amount purchased. The prices we charge are the price we pay or you when or if you order through us. This means that when you order, and our supplier issues a trade number, that purchase is locked in for you. If the price goes up or down the next day or next hour, you must pay the agreed upon price when you confirmed your intention to order, and the trade number was issued. Our trades are shipped directly from a Brink's warehouse in Salt Lake City via registered insured mail with the U.S. Post Office. It is as simple as that!
