The Gold Bullion Melt Value Calculator, located below, will figure the total gold value of an
individual gold coin, round, bar, or ingot; or of many different types and quantities of gold
items. The gold value is determined based on the total weight of gold content. The gold calculator
will only show what the gold metal is worth (intrinsic value), and will not indicate any numismatic
(collector) value of your gold coins or bullion.
Use the gold calculator to find out how much your gold bullion is worth, or to determine what
you would be willing to pay based on the spot price for an ounce of gold.

If your gold bullion is in the form of coins, there are also calculators for both
United States and
Canadian Mint issued gold bullion.

How to use the Gold Melt Value Calculator.
Enter the total amount of coins, rounds, bars or ingots for each gold item, based on its actual
gold weight. Enter your numbers in the text boxes located directly to the right of that item's
corresponding unit of weight. As an alternative, you can simply click on that row's gold weight
image, or its link, to increment the value of its text box by 1. The calculator will automatically
update the Total Gold Value (in red), whenever a change is made to the number of gold items.
The Total Gold Value is derived based on the U.S. Dollar amount specified in the Gold Price
text box. You could also use one of the other major world currencies available in the drop-down menu
located underneath the prices. The default price is updated frequently during normal trading hours.
The Gold Price can be changed to represent the price you'd be inclined to pay per ounce for the
gold contained in any combination of gold items. This can help you to determine the maximum bid you
could enter for an online gold bullion auction.
In addition to the Total Gold Value (in red), the gold calculator will also figure a Bid and Ask
price based on the amount displayed in the Price Spread text box. This amount defaults to 5%, but
can be changed if you like. The gold Bid and Ask prices are shown in the lower section of the gold
results box, for those who would like to use them.
If your gold item is alloyed with another metal, you can use the Bullion Purity text box to adjust
accordingly. Simply enter the item's percentage of pure gold by weight, and all resultant values
will be multiplied by that percentage value.
The gold calculator computes total gold value and total gold weight in regard to the amount of gold
content in items having no wear from handling. A gold coin or round, which does have some wear, will
not contain as much gold. You may want to indicate a percentage of that wear in the "Amount of
Wear" text box. A number larger than the default of 0 (zero), will reduce the total gold value
and total gold weight results accordingly.
