Our independent precious metals assaying service gets the most out of every melt. 

The price of precious metals constantly fluctuates. However, one thing doesn’t change. Precious metals always hold value, so it pays to know what your scrap is really worth. And that’s where we can help.

We work with a range of industries from jewellery to dental. That’s because everyone who has scrap precious metal wants to know the same thing – what’s it worth? 

When you send your precious metal scrap to our independent laboratory, we’ll melt it, clean it, test it, then provide you with a bar and certificate for you to sell straight to your refiner.

And because we have no vested interest in the value of the items we analyse, we can do all of this for one transparent, fixed price.  

It really does pay to know what’s in your scrap.

We’ve had feedback from dental clients advising us that they have been able to get up to three times more income from a clean AnchorCert Analytical bar than they had previously from comparable bags of dental and precious metal scrap…

We can provide you with a list of local refiners for you to take your finished bar and certificate too. And you can rest assured that our certificates are accepted by all of the majors.

AnchorCert Analytical is one of the UK’s leading precious metals testing and analysis laboratories. Part of the AnchorCert Group, our sister divisions includes Assay Office Birmingham – the UK’s largest Assay Office. We were created in 1773 by an Act of Parliament to assay or test precious metal, where we guarantee the fineness or content of gold, silver, platinum and palladium articles with our globally-recognised Anchor.

Since our creation, we have continued to trade on our accuracy and integrity, diversifying our services and investing heavily in state-of the-art technology and equipment like Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) machines, as well as more traditional methodologies like cupellation, to provide the highest accuracy and best possible service to our customers.

Based in the heart of the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter, we accept scrap and lemel precious metals for melt and assay at our new, state-of-the-art, purpose-built laboratory, either over our counter or via the post.

Why not try our services today? Let us play with fire, so you don’t get burnt.
