Precious Metal Scraps Accepted by MGS

With more than 25 years of experience, Manhattan Gold & Silver is respected across the nation as a fast and capable gold refiner. We recycle a wide range of precious metal materials in any amount. Our furnaces can even melt down platinum (melting point: 3214.9 °F) with ease. When new customers reach out to us for precious metals refining, we are always asked “what can you accept?” While it’s true we have a few exceptions, we do service many industries and accept many kinds of precious metal products.

The businesses we most commonly service include pawnbrokers, jewelers, dentists, industrial companies, and antique dealers. As such, some of the precious metal items we commonly refine are:


  • Jewelry
  • Fillings
  • Polishing material
  • Industrial byproducts
  1. Aerospace components
  2. Military
  • Gold bullion, including
  1. Canadian Maple Leaves
  2. American Eagles
  3. Liberty Heads
  4. Gold Sovereigns

As you can see, there are many types of precious metal scrap we can refine. However, we do not accept alluvial gold, electronic scrap, or mined materials from Africa. If you have any other questions about our refining methods or how much we can pay you for your lot, contact us today.
