Richard' Old Man' Harrison: $5 million
Before his demise in 2018, Richard Harrison served in the United States Navy. After his service, he invested and lost a million dollars in the American real estate market. This prompted him to relocate his family to Las Vegas in search of a new start to life.
Richard then opened the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in 1988. The shop would accept various items, including antique cars, Rolexes, and musical instruments. The Old Man's uncanny precision in assessing the value of different artefacts led to the business's quick growth.
His business skills quickly made him the unrivalled king when it came to spotting and purchasing underpriced items, at times even from rival pawn shops. Richard's $10,000 investment in his pawnshop had grown into a multi-million-dollar business within a short time.
On the show, Richard was often heard sharing humorous musings from the comfort of his office. At the time of his demise, he was worth $5 million, a fortune that his family inherited.
Rick Harrison: $8 million
Since its inception more than three decades ago, Rick Harrison has been part of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop. His keen eye quickly earned him the title 'The Spotter.' As far as a wide range of items goes, Rick is the man to spot anything fake or stolen.
Before Richard's demise, Rick would often act as the middleman between the Old Man and his grandson, Corey. Rick was trained in the pawn business since the age of 13 and even dropped out of high school to pursue his fake Gucci bag business.
At the age of 23, Rick joined his father's then-new pawn shop. Since then, he has amassed a wealth of experience in novelty and antique items. He is often depicted as the most experienced item appraiser on the show. Rick's net worth in 2022 is estimated to be $8 million.
Corey Harrison: $4 million
Corey' Big Hoss' Harrison is Rick Harrison's son and began working at the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop when he was nine years old. Like his father, Corey is a skilled appraiser and can easily spot a cheat. Besides appraisals, Corey also handles eBay clients and anything to do with hiring and firing.
On the show, Corey and Rick have a complex relationship. Corey thinks that his dad treats him like a slave. On the other hand, Rick believes that Corey still has much to do to prove his worth and earn his place in the business.
Corey spent a lot of his childhood years at his grandfather's business polishing and admiring antiques. He hopes to eventually take the role of the head boss when his dad retires from the business. His current net worth is about $4 million.
Austin Russell: $5 million
Austin 'Chumlee' Russell is Corey's childhood friend. Just like Corey, Austin has been part of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop ever since he was a kid. Everyone at the shop loves Austin even though he is often on the receiving end of endless jokes.
One of the reasons the other cast members barely take Chumlee seriously is his unrelenting attempts to get Corey to buy items that entertain him, such as circus items and video games. Most times, the said items have no real business value. Still, he is extremely skilled in appraising novelty items, vintage toys, pinball machines, and sports-related memorabilia.
Additionally, Austin's heart of gold is often viewed as bad for business, even if it's excellent for customer service. He always wants the best deal for the patrons and regularly takes their side. His nickname, Chumlee, comes from a cartoon character known as Chumley.
Austin has a successful side business selling custom t-shirts. His current net worth is about $5 million.
Recurring cast members
Besides the main cast members, there are several others who make recurring appearances. Here is a look at the most regular ones and their net worth in 2022.

He has been brought into the shop to give expert appraisals on several items. Murray is based in Las Vegas, placing him just a short distance Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.
Additionally, Murray has become a close friend to the current boss at the pawnshop, Rick Harrison. His latest appearance was when he came in to look at an original copy of a book titled The Expert at the Card Table, a book considered to be the pinnacle of literature for magicians.
Murray's current net worth is estimated to be $15 million.
Johnny Jimenez: $1 Million
Johnny Jimenez often comes to the pawnshop to appraise vintage toys. When not on the show, Jimenez runs a business known as Toy Shack in Las Vegas. Like other recurring cast members, Jimenez is friends with the staff at the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop.
