Assuming they are out of business----unfortunately, they have my money and I don't have the silver I ordered on the last two orders placed. Don't make the same mistake I did. No response to emails or telephone calls!!!!
Still in Business?????

At this point can't go any lower than 1 star....Stay away. They take your money and don't ship or respond to inquiries.

Maybe once they were legitimate. I've done business with them since 2011 ,...beware they've taken $6,019.45 for five ounces of gold and failed to deliver and refuse to answer any correspondence whether e-mail or phone. They have a posting on there site stating there shutting down operations due to , "Transactional delay............, and future messages will be posted on this site" ..it has been two weeks and no new postings ...There below rating they manage to pick up a second check I'd sent for an order of silver fortunately I was able to put a stop on that check or they would have had another 3,400.00 of my money................Beware...they get a -5 star rating

Agonizingly slow in delivery---Prices are good but the span of time for actual delivery is painful. I pay by check, but once the check clears the bank, there is no reason to prolong delivery. Have made four purchases this month ad experience is the same on all.
Good service and easy to use

Nothing but good transactions from this firm. My latest order, #PQJY4EUPKJ, arrived on time and in good order. Site is a bit more complicated than standard click-to-order sites, but they offer more too with their online 'portfolio'.
