How much is an Oscar statue worth?
Well since they're not solid gold, they're not worth that much. The statues are gold-plated and worth just $629. Of course, their sentimental value makes the case slightly more complicated. This is an award, not a used Buick.
But if they were made out of solid gold, they'd be worth a heck of a lot. According to Dillon Gage Metals, which is one of the world’s largest precious metals wholesale trading firms, a single Oscar statue would be worth $439,308.45 if you consider gold is currently worth around $1,335 per ounce.
Can you sell an Oscar?
No, you sure cannot. Receiving an Oscar is actually more like being loaned an Oscar. You're allowed to keep it as long as you want, and you can pass it down to your heirs, but before you sell it you have to offer it up to the Academy for $10. And they're going to buy it.
