For Immediate Release
Pompano Beach, Fla. – July 27, 2009 – Cash4Gold, America’s #1 gold buyer direct from the general public, has estimated that the Gold Cup trophy presented on Sunday is worth approximately $17,200. The Gold Cup trophy is traditionally awarded to the winner of the bi-annual international soccer tournament of the same name that includes national teams from North and Central America and the Caribbean.
The Mexico national soccer team blazed past the competition in the 2009 tournament, winning the championship match in New Jersey to capture the trophy.
Certified appraisers at Cash4Gold have estimated that the 28-pound Gold Cup trophy contains roughly $17,200 worth of precious metals if, like other sports trophies including the NBA’s Larry O’Brien trophy, it is fashioned of solid sterling silver and plated with 24K gold.
The Gold Cup itself is a celebrated prize, whose sentimental value to the team and country that wins it surely eclipses its melt value. The term melt value refers to the value of actual precious metal contained in an item that a refinery such as the one run by Cash4Gold can extract and recycle. Melt value does not account for the decorative, artistic, historic or sentimental value of an item.
“Mexico won a hard-fought victory for the Gold Cup, and we are also very proud of the strong showing by the U.S. national team which took second,” said Cash4Gold President Howard Mofshin. “We understand completely if Mexico’s soccer team doesn’t send the trophy in for its melt value. However, Cash4Gold is a fast and convenient option for anyone else looking to monetize their unwanted or broken gold, silver, or platinum jewelry.”
