Pompano Beach, Fla. – March 5, 2010 – Cash4Gold (www.Cash4Gold.com), the trusted industry leader in mail-in gold buying, regularly keeps track of the latest news surrounding precious metals and learned of the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum located in San José, the capital city of Costa Rica.
The Gold Museum opened in 1982 as a part of the Museums of the Central Bank of Costa Rica located in the Plaza de la Cultura. The Pre-Columbian Gold Museum is housed in the same area as the Numismatic Museum and an art exhibition space. The museum began collecting the artifacts in the 1950s and the complete collection currently consists of around 1,600 items. At any given time, about 900 pieces are on display in the museum.
The gold artifacts draw inspiration from the diverse species of the surrounding landscape. Many of the objects include small pendants in the shape of butterflies, monkeys, jungle cats and crocodiles. With the discovery of vast gold deposits in Costa Rica, early Pre-Columbian era artisans were able to make numerous items such as pendants and even larger traded goods. Visitors to Costa Rica can find more information on the museum at www.museosdelbancocentral.org.
This exhibit is proof that gold has been a valuable commodity for hundreds of years. Gold has always provided a value for consumers regardless of the era. Today, gold prices are near record highs, which makes it the perfect time to turn unwanted, broken or unused items into cash. The process is secure and easy. For consumers with items of high sentimental or historical values, such as the pieces at The Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, sending them to Cash4Gold for their melt value might not be the best option. Melt value refers to the value of actual precious metal included in an item and does not account for the sentimental or historic value.
Cash4Gold provides an easy and secure method for Americans to monetize broken and unwanted gold items from the comfort of their own homes. Customers can simply request a pre-paid Jewelry Return Pack from Cash4Gold and mail in their items. After receiving the Pack and sending in the items, Cash4Gold assays the contents of the package at its state-of-the-art facility and then sends out a check for the melt value. If consumers aren’t completely satisfied with the valuation, they can request that Cash4Gold return their items within 12 days of the date printed on the check at no charge to the customer.
