My guess is that gold will have the same value whichever form it is in (ingot, leaf, worked jewellery). Dust and panned might realise a lesser amount to account for impurities.

That said, there is a tendency for the trade to put a higher value on worked gold jewellery mined from areas, such as Wales, where it is rare.

Karen - this will give you the current price of gold per kilo. It is currently trading at slightly over 850 USD per kilo.

Gives current spot price of gold in $/oz.  Need to know the fineness of gold to determine the price- most panned gold is between 80 fine to 95 fine (100 fine is pure gold, impurities, such as silver, decrease the percentage of gold).  Most gold brokers will charge a small percentage fee for processing.

OOPS!  My mistake.

The phrase originated in  Dahlonega, Georgia (deep in the heart of Dixie).
