While driving home from a weekend trip I heard a commercial on the radio, easy steps on how to get that new TV you want, the vacation you dream of or something else one might desire.
A new service which is named (in norwegian) Gullvekten (The gold scale) is buying old and unused gold from good ol average Joe, everything from jewelry to gold fillings.
They offer relatively good prices per gram of gold, depending on the quality.

First thing that popped into my head was, why?
What makes it so lucrative to all of a sudden have people mail their gold to them for a cashreturn?
Any insight from the rest of the community on this?
