FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 15, 2009 – Pompano Beach, FL – The Pittsburgh Penguins are once again on top of the hockey world, having been awarded the Stanley Cup, one of the most renowned trophies in all of sports.
Certified appraisers at Cash4Gold, America's #1 buyer of precious metals direct from the general public, have studied photographs of the famed 35-pound trophy. They estimate that it might contain as much as $7,500 worth of silver, assuming that the trophy is 100% silver.
Given that the Stanley Cup is one of the most distinguished trophies in sports, its worth most likely outweighs the melt value that the piece would command if it were sent to Cash4Gold. Melt value refers to the value of actual precious metal contained in an item that a refinery can extract and recycle. Melt value does not account for the decorative, artistic, historic, or sentimental value of a given item.
"The Pittsburgh Penguins prevailed in a great series, and I don't expect the team to send the Stanley Cup to Cash4Gold," said Cash4Gold CEO Jeff Aronson. "However, if any of their fans or any other Americans want to tap the value of old or broken gold or silver jewelry lying around the house, then now would be a great time to send it to Cash4Gold. We're buying."
Cash4Gold is currently running a Gold Rush promotion offering customers an additional 20% payout for items submitted to the company before July 4, 2009.
Cash4Gold's Gold Rush campaign has been widely advertised on television, and is the focal point of the industry-leading company's mission to buy $100 million worth of gold before the long Independence Day holiday weekend.
