A typical loan is small, averaging $75.00 to $100.00, although we will loan as little as $5.00 or as much as $25,000.

The American Gold Mine offers another option to the pawn loan. Payday loans give consumers cash until their next payday. A borrower writes a personal check to the American Gold Mine, who holds the check for a period of 14 to 31 days. The check is more than the amount of cash that the borrower gets. At the end of the specified time period, the lender cashes the borrower’s check. The borrower can return with cash to reclaim the check or renew the loan for additional fees. Missouri allows up to six renewals.
