Bronze has a cost that varies according to its fluctuating value in the market. Different scrap yards, antique dealers and other buyers all pay different rates for the alloy.
Bronze values also vary according to the type of bronze being assessed. Some of these include bismuth bronze, commercial bronze and plastic bronze. Although the price of bronze is not typically very high in comparison with other metals, the copper alloy is so dense that its value quickly adds up, particularly when it is sold in bulk.
Prior to being sold to a scrap yard, bronze should be separated from other metals in order to properly assess its value.
