I went to Gold Rush to have some coins evaluated and to sell some coins as well. I have no doubt that I received a fair price for the coins I sold and I was most appreciative of the expert information that I received on the coins I decided to keep as an investment. Phil was very friendly, informative and generous with his time. I would highly recommend this business as a reputable coin dealer and will be returning in the future.
Gold Rush provided an excellent experience. The people working there were very friendly and helpful. The process of having my coins valued was streamlined and simple, and the price they gave me was higher than I expected. I would definitely recommend them.
Gold Rush was a very respectful and friendly place to do business. They were extremely fair in their evaluation of the gold that I had brought in. I shopped around before and then went back to them. I am very happy with the exchange and am most certain I will ONLY do business with them. Thank you

These people are scammers, they say one thing and do other, went to sell them silver and 23 grams of gold and they gave me the lowest price in Sacramento, and they tried to tell me my 14 k jewelry was 10 when no other jewelers told me this, scammers don't go there

I've been to this place a few times , sold them some scrap gold jewelry and thought it was a pretty descent business ,,,, I never really checked thier math , just took thier word for it so I'm not sure if I was treated fairly in the past , I can't be positive if I was or wasn't ,..
But the last time I went there ( fri dec 2nd 2011 )
I did my own math ahead of time . checked prices , etc.
I sold them 17.4 grams of 14k gold which they claimed to be paying 77% of melt value for ( a fair price and common practice ) my math I did ahead of time came to about $440.00 I should have been paid ...the guy working there told me that $385.00 was 77% of the going rate for that day , I mentioned what I came up with , he claimed he was right , he used a caqlculator , I wasn't going to make a big deal over it and gave him the benefit of the doubt and accepted his offer , thinking maybe I was off a little om my figures , after getting home I re checked my math and came up with the same thing ,......heres what I figured ,... gold at $1743.94 per ounce is $56.07 per gram for 24k ..( .$1743.94 divided by 31.103 a troy ounce is $56.07 )
14k is .585 % of 24k therefore .585% of $56.07 is $32.80 per gram for 14k ,,,,,then 77% of that ( what I was told they pay ) is $25.25 per gram .... 17.4 grams at that price should be $439.35 ( what i thought i should get , he claimed it came to $385.00 , I accepted it then figured it out later that this was about 67% of melt value , 10% less than I was told I was getting paid , a $50.00 difference , its not the money so much that I dont appreciate as being lied to or treated like i'm some kind of idiot that doesn't know the difference ,
I will just take my business elsewhere and hopefully this will let others know that if you do go there or anywhere else do your math , check prices , dont be a sucker because theres alot of people looking to take advantage of people that arent aware of exactly what kind of deal they are getting .
