The best place locally to exchange a commodity(gold) for currency is through a broker and if all else fails a pawn broker or a coin dealer. When dealing with a coin dealer or pawn broker, always ask for silver in exchange for gold not currency whenever possible for previously mentioned reasons. Avoid the banks and nosy and gossipy merchants.
