Pennyweight simplifies the way you determine the value of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium based on weight, market price, fineness, and buy/sell percentages. Instead of recalling the formula and going through all of the steps and calculations, all you need to do is enter a few simple details into the app to streamline the whole procedure and get your customers processed quickly. Just select the purity, unit of measure (troy ounces, pennyweight, or grams), and enter the weight. Pennyweight will automatically show you the value based on the current market price.

* Privacy options include the ability to show or hide market prices on the main screen and set margin percentages on a separate screen so they are not visible to customers.
* Feedback on the transaction and calculated value on a per unit basis (e.g. “Buying at $22.87 per dwt”).
