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.

I use to use this app daily. It worked fine until the beginning of August 2016 when the Kitco spot information stopped updating on the app rendering it totally useless. I wrote the developer two times, have not heard any response, and it still is not updating. I deleted the app and reinstalled it to no avail. I now uploaded the free Kitco app which basically does what this app used to do and I am very pleased using their app instead of Pennyweight. UPDATE: finally working again thanks to recent update from the developer that only took a few months to fix. I still like using this app when it works. Thanks.


New update makes app useless.

I’ve used this app for many years to buy and sell gold and silver now the app is completely useless. Are used to be able to put percentages in of what we will buy and pay for stuff now all that is gone completely do not understand why you would gut this app I can get these type of numbers on the kitco. Will delete and look for something else.


Used to be 5 Stars...Now 0 Stars...Crashes

This app used to be awesome! In fact, it used to be the best for precious metal dealers. I'm not sure what happened with the last update, but now all it does is crashes when you open it. It's really unfortunate.
