Buy Gold & Silver


Peter Schiff  0f SchiffGold

It shouldn’t be complicated to buy gold and silver. After all, precious metals are among the simplest financial assets in the world – you either own them or you don’t. Whether you’re planning to buy silver or gold, we’re dedicated to making your precious metals experience as easy and pain-free as possible.

If our offerings seem limited compared to other dealers, it’s because we recommend buying only the most common bullion products in the world. Our premiums on these coins and bars are among the lowest in the industry. We do not recommend numismatic coins, proof sets, special editions, or other “collectibles” to serious investors.​

Recommended Precious Metal Types


We recommend that serious investors in gold and silver choose only bullion coins and bars. Within that category, buyers are wise to stick with industry standard, nationally-minted coins: American Eagles and Buffalos, Canadian Maple Leafs, Australian Kangaroos, and South African Krugerrands.

Many of our competitors push exotic or commemorative coins, which are sold to unsuspecting investors for 25-30% commissions over the price of the metal they contain. In general, these products are terrible investments and should not be considered if you are looking to protect your savings from inflation.

SchiffGold Recommendations By Product Type:

  • Gold
  • Silver
  • COLLECTIBLE Coins

In gold, we recommend buying these types of products:

1-ounce and fractional gold coins

1-ounce bars, 10-ounce bars, and 1-kilo bars

Why We Don’t Sell Numismatic Coins

We have nothing against collecting numismatic coins for aesthetic or hobby reasons. However, we argue that for two critical reasons numismatic coins are generally poor investments.

First is the mark-ups or commissions. It is not uncommon to see mark-ups of 20% to 35% on numismatic coins. That means that the price of gold has to appreciate by 35% before you break even on a sale.

Would you buy a stock if your broker charged you a commission of 35%? We have our roots in the securities industry, where commissions are far lower, which is part of why we do not sell numismatic coins.

In addition, selling little-known, unusual, or exotic coins may be difficult, or you may have to sell below the market value of the metal. Unless the dealer has an immediate need for the coin you purchased, he may be reluctant to repurchase it from you. In contrast, bullion coins are a fungible commodity for which there is always a ready, liquid, and transparent global market.

Why Invest in Precious Metals with SchiffGold?


Liquidity

Liquidity is an important factor when buying gold and silver. There will come a time when you want to sell your metals. Since we only work with recognizable, highly liquid bullion products, you can sleep easy knowing that the metals you purchased can be easily sold.

Liquidity presupposes a fast and efficient market, which may not exist for so many of the numismatic and exotic coins that are offered by our competitors. Often, the only buyer for your collectible coins may be the dealer from whom you bought them. This is not an ideal situation.

SchiffGold stands ready to help you buy or sell your precious metals. We stand behind everything we sell and are happy to buy back any gold or silver product that you’ve purchased – whether you bought it from us or not.

Reliability & Integrity

Peter SchiffChairman of SchiffGold

The precious metals field is completely unregulated. Dealers of dubious reputation are not uncommon, as are investing schemes that sound good, but are often rigged to bilk unsuspecting buyers.

In times of economic uncertainty, shady operators take advantage of the urgent and emotional demand for precious metals by jumping into the marketplace. In such an environment it is incumbent on the consumer to only do business with trustworthy companies.

Peter Schiff is Chairman and Principal Owner of SchiffGold. Over the years, Peter has developed a sterling reputation as a no-nonsense straight shooter who zealously guards his public image.

Time and again, Peter has shown his integrity by telling the truth, often at the expense of popularity and potential business. His specific goal with SchiffGold is to bring honesty, integrity, and fair pricing to the business.
