We make every effort to expedite processing of these payment methods but occasionally instances arise that may cause a delay in your order.

    An eCheck is simply an electronic version of a paper check.

    We recently began accepting eCheck as a payment method online only.

    We do not accept eChecks over the phone.

    If you have a checking account, you are eligible to pay via echeck.

    Your bank account number, bank routing number, and a form of ID are required to pay via eCheck.

    Orders paid by eCheck are generally cleared for shipment quicker simply because there is no need to wait while a physical check is in the mail. Some limits will apply and we will notify through our newsletter when this becomes an option.

  • I tried paying by eCheck but got an error message, why is that?

    If you receive an error message when trying to place an eCheck order, the payment has been declined by your bank. Most times, the error message is a result of your bank not recognizing your driver’s license number. This can be easily fixed by providing a different form of ID such as your Social Security Number to verify your identity. We take the security of your personal information very seriously and have chosen the most secure processor to serve this purpose.

  • How do I pay by bank wire?

We require personal checks, cashier’s checks and money orders to be postmarked within 1 business day from the day you placed your order.

BULLION MARKET QUESTIONS

  • What is the gold silver ratio?

    The gold to silver ratio (GSR) is the relative value of an ounce of gold compared to an ounce of silver is USD for our uses. Current and historical GSR data is available on our Gold to Silver Ratio page. This ratio is often used by investors to determine when to buy either metal based on the historical data.

    For instance if the gold to silver ratio over a discrete period is 75 to 1 (75 ounces of silver required to provide the same value as 1 ounce of gold) but the current GSR is 110 to 1. It may be deemed that silver is undervalued compared to gold and therefore may be a better option for purchase as it reasons that the GSR will return to historical values.

  • When are the precious metals market hours?

    The precious metals exchange markets are open Sundays at 6PM EST through Fridays at 5PM EST. They are also closed briefly from 5PM to 6PM EST Monday through Thursday. Markets are additionally closed in observance of specific holidays. While the markets are open, you can expect the metals prices to change second to second.

    Find real time and historical precious metals prices on our charts page.

  • What is the difference between troy ounce and regular ounce?

    The American traditional ounce (the ounces most Americans are familiar with) comes from the Avoirdupois system. It is a system that has been in place since the 13th century. It consists of ounces and pounds that we are all comfortable with using.

    Precious metals are weighed using the Troy System which was originally used in Troyes, France during the middle ages. The Troy metric has remained the standard by which all precious metals are weighed and traded. In modern times Troy Ounces can be abbreviated as OZT.

    When buying and selling precious metals most hallmarks indicate Troy standard. In many cases where Troy Ounces is not specifically stated, it is implied.

    See conversions below

    1 Troy Ounce = 1.09714 AVDP Ounces = 31.1 grams

    1 AVDP Ounce = .911458 Troy Ounces = 28.349 grams
