Why We Prefer Buying Gold Online

As mentioned above, we prefer buying gold from online sources as opposed to locally. Our main reasons are price, convenience, and selection.

When you shop online, you typically will pay $20+ less per ounce than when you shop locally. Local coin shops have significant overhead and limited reach, forcing them to charge large premiums. This is opposed to online companies with low overhead and large reach, allowing them to offer terrific prices.

The ease of shopping online cannot be beaten - you can complete an entire purchase from your couch, and await delivery to your door. And product selection online is far more vast than what you will find locally. Should you prefer to shop locally, view our state by state listings of local dealers by clicking your state below.
