But how is gold weighed for cash when you go to sell it? Unlike other items that you sell by weight, gold isn’t measure in ounces. Instead it is measured in troy ounces. A troy ounce is larger than a standard ounce and it’s important for buyers and sellers of gold to understand the difference.

Determine the current price of gold. Knowing how much your gold is worth is great information to have as you begin the process of selling it.
Divide today’s gold price in dollars per ounce by 31.1 to get today’s gold price per gram.
Multiply by the fineness of the gold. For each group of gold, divide the karat by 24, then multiply that number by today’s gold price per gram.
Go through the assaying process to be sure of the gold’s value. The gold still has to go through an assay process to determine the true percentage of gold.
Multiply the price per gram by the weight in grams.

Find out how long it takes to get a refund, how long they hold your money before it turns into gold, and how many days you have to turn down an offer.
