Legit Gold dealers
All I can find are Monex (Newport Beach CA), and NTMint (Auburn WA). Silly quaetion, but I dont know these dealers from Adam. Are they legit?
Anyone here have compiled a list of good dealers?
I bought from Kitco and had good experiences so far. They’re not the cheapest place but it was the closest for me here in Canada and the easiest place to buy exactly what I wanted.
NW Territorial Mint is legit but very slow in delivery. Kitco is well known and well established. My personal favorite is APMEX.
They usually have the best prices. The deliver via the USPS. I have never had any kind of problem with them.
I have used NWT Mint. They were very professional and helpful, however, delivery had slowed considerably. My last purchase on 7/14/08 was not received until 8/29/08.
I bot my first Eagle this week from my (only) local stamp and coin dealer. I guess I’m a trusting soul for this; he told me that a woman had just resold this back to him because she had bot it a few years ago and now needed the $, at a good profit. I talked with the guy a while. He’s been here decades and isn’t going anywhere. My BS indicator is pretty good. Also, no records…hand over cash, get handed a coin.
Not sure where you’re writing from. Here in Canada you can buy Canadian Mint coins at the Bank of Nova Scotia, you can also find all the other official mint resellers at the Mint website.
If you’re buying from dealers, then be aware of their reputaion, and make sure that the coins are in "mint" condition – Otherwise their value will decrease.
PS: I’ve been hearing about shortage of gold in this forum for months, but I have never seen a shortage at our downtown Scotiabank (in Calgary) – And in the bank the prices are based on a percentage over spot, unlike dealers, who put whatever premium they choose.
Best of luck!
I’ve purchased twice from Colorado Gold. their prices are about the same as Kitco, which also looked good to me.
I had problems with monex they overcharged me and have not refunded my money
since oct. 08 see my forum topic i posted today with the details. place NOT to buy gold.
avoid monaco financial, and zoomcoin. buy local if you can.
I’ve bought from both Tulving and APMEX and both have been fine… pricing was fair/ competitive and both delivered within a week to 10 days.
Has anyone ever heard of or used Bullion direct or Goldline— both dot coms I’ve waited about as long as I can stand it– any advice would be appreciated
