Bullion We Buy
We purchase not only all the various bullion products we show for sale on our website, but also many other forms of precious metal not shown for sale.  The bullion we routinely sell shows both our "buy" and "sell" prices for your convenience.  Please call us to tell us about the bullion you have for sale, so we can give you an assessment of your bullion, including whether we're interested in buying your bullion.  For more examples of the kind of gold and silver we buy, please visit these links:

Pricing / Sale Process
We indicate prices on our website, but market movements may occur more rapidly than updates allow. Because precious metals prices change constantly, all orders must by placed by telephone so that prices can be locked in at the prevailing market. Prompt shipment is required; metals must be postmarked or shipped within two days of locking in your price.
Upon confirmation of your sale to us, we provide you a confirmation number.
In some cases when buying back large dollar amounts, a 10-15% transaction fee may be required at the time of booking. This fee will be returned with payment when the transaction is completed. Transactions of $50,000.00 or more are subject to approval by our bullion manager before completion.

We are always looking for new inventory and do accept trade-ins.

We do accept consignments on occasion. Please contact us and we will be happy to discuss what you have in mind.

We keep all transactions confidential, and do not report to any third parties, except to satisfy government cash-reporting requirements for dealers under federal regulations.
