How do you select the coins, rounds and bars that you sell?
We sell only investment-grade gold, silver, platinum and palladium produced by mints that produce metals that are widely recognized and readily traded by metals brokers all over the world.

Do you sell or buy numismatics (collectible coins)?
We are not in the numismatics business. We buy and sell based only on the silver or gold content of all items, regardless of their collectibility.

Can I sell my metals to STC?
Yes. There are two options for recognized bars, coins and rounds:

1. We buy any commonly recognized gold, silver, platinum or palladium coins, bars and rounds at very competitive rates. Please email us or phone for a quote.

2. We are happy to facilitate “swaps” when you want to swap your gold bars, coins or rounds for silver bars, coins or rounds (or silver for gold) based on the gold:silver ratio.

Please email us or call with any questions. We will be happy to assist you.

  • Note: We do not buy numismatics (collectibles) other than for their value in metal.

Should I take delivery of my metals?
We think it’s a good idea to take delivery of your metals.

How should I store my metals?
We suggest storing your metals either in a secure storage facility (a vault, not a safety deposit box) or in a well-hidden safe in your home.  You can download our white paper about where to store your gold and silver and our advanced guide to buying a safe.

  • • Please phone us if you want information about off-site storage options.

Can you offer me investment advice?
No. Please consult a registered investment advisor for investment advice.
