We have been in business for 30 years in Minnesota. 

We have done over eight billion in gross sales without ever having a customer or regulatory complaint. Ever! Spend a few minutes on google, you won't find one. That's something we are very proud of especially in a federally non-regulated industry. 

We maintain an A+ rating with the BBB and are one of only 24 companies worldwide to ever be approved by the U.S. Mint as an authorized reseller of their product. 

The Minnesota state regulations set us apart nationally.  Minnesota is the only state in the country to regulate the federally non-regulated precious metals industry.  Minnesota licensing requires us to be beholden to the Commissioner of Commerce with a very large surety bond, annual background checks of all employees and principals and compliance regulations that no other state maintains. This licensing all but guarantees you the most secure transactions in the industry.
