With all of the hype surrounding the “cash for gold” industry and the soaring price of gold these days, we decided to perform an undercover experiment to figure out which companies really pay the most for gold. We sent the exact same materials to seven different “cash for gold companies” and are sharing our results (and thoughts on the individual companies) on this site.

This particular review is for Express Gold Cash, Inc. (, which is a “cash for gold” company that’s based out of Salamanca, NY. They’re a family-owned business, and they’ve been in business for over a decade now.

Before we share our results with you, there are some things that we wanted to let you know about. First of all, they have a really great guarantee… not only do they have a 30-day money back guarantee, but if you decide to not accept their offer, they’ll return your items back to you along with $20 cash. Pretty cool, right?

Another aspect of their business that seems to be different than that of other “cash for gold” businesses are that their “Gold Packs” are insured for up to $5,000 – which is great for their customers because you never know when your shipments might get lost.

On the topic of shipping, you can also track the location of your pack on Express Gold cash’s website.

Now for the results of our experiment…

Express Gold Cash paid us $174.38 for the materials that I sent to them. This payout was actually a pretty solid one – except for the fact that they returned our silver coins because they claimed that they have no value.

We understand that these silver coins may have been tricky to assess (considering that the silver coins were gold-plated) but they were clearly marked “sterling silver” on the side. This is something that you would hope a precious metal refiner would pick up on.

Here are pictures of my interaction with them…

  1. Price

    This company is a rip-off! I sent them a pair of 18-k gold earrings and an small 14-k bracelet for a baby which cost me over six hundre bucks to buy. I sent the stuff to them and they sent me a check for twenty bucks!!!! I could not believe it! And then, here is the best part, when I treid to call them, they offered me eighty more dollars over the phone. I was so f-ing mad I told them to screw themselves! But they did send my items back to me, Thank G-d! Anyway, don’t use them!
