With the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games coming up, some of our customers have asked us about metal items related to the games including the medals given to the athletes as well as the special gold coins released by the Royal Australian Mint. The value of these items has also been asked….
Typically Commonwealth Games medals are made up of a solid circular piece of metal (Gold, Silver and Bronze) with engravings on either side displaying location relevant royal, cultural and other symbols. The design typically reflects the history and cultural heritage of the host city (and country). As you can expect, the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games will have some very unique, spectacular medal designs. The Royal Australian Mint has also released Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games commemorative coins. These coins ($5 and $25) are a limited release with a high value.
So what is the estimated value of these Commonwealth Games items typically? First, the true value depends of the sellers and buyers point of view (based on factors such as time and location). The other point of view is the scrap value. The first and easiest way of calculating the scrap value of a Commonwealth Games item is figuring what the metal is worth if one were melted down. Using our gold calculator we can get the latest, most up to date price based on the weight of the item.
