29 May 2012

In this special feature, you’ll find information about the current 22ct gold price per gram and we’ll provide you with everything you need to know to decide whether selling 22ct gold for cash is the right option.

Like every commodity 22ct gold prices are determined by the rules of supply and demand but there are certain issues you need to factor in when selling 22ct gold – gold doesn’t decay, you can’t upgrade it and there are very few people who will put it straight into the bin.

The 22ct gold price has risen in the last few years partly because of our ongoing fears of national and international instability. As money markets and shares remain steeped in volatility, investors are seeking out opportunities that in the long term won’t drop in value, and the price of gold is a good example.

For some time now, 22ct gold prices have been getting higher and higher it could be just the right time to sell your 22ct gold for cash.


Gold Facts

  • Gold is so malleable and it can be hammered out so thinly, a one-inch high pile of gold sheets can contain around 200,000 individual sheets!
  • The word ‘carat’ is derived from the Greek word ‘carob’. Traders used to use the carob seed as a counterbalance when weighing gold because they appeared to have a uniform weight.
  • 22ct gold is often referred to as ‘yellow gold’ due to its distinctive colour.


Gold Purity

The carat rating of gold affects its value. Gold purity is measured in a total of 24 units, or carats, and 24ct gold is considered to be 99.999% pure.

22ct gold is 22 parts gold and 2 parts other metals (usually copper or silver) so it has a purity of 91.6%.
