Called Wholesale Direct Metals
today. Spot price for gold was at $1,186 oz. - silver at $18.38 oz.
I spoke with a nice gentleman to find out about prices etc. I told him that I was only interested in the gold and silver eagles and over the years I have always bought from Apmex and Midas a few times. He quoted me a price, $1,240.50 oz. and $20.19 oz. for the silver. Good price! Attempted to place my usual monthly order (2 - 1 oz.gold eagles and 100 - 1 oz. silver eagles) with aspirations of saving a few bucks while at the same time supporting patriot radio. Before I could ask about shipping,time etc he told me that he only deals with orders that are $10.000 and up. "Oh, o.k. sir, I understand." Before I could say thanks for your time and have a good evening he cut me off and said in that elitist vocal tone these exact words...
"We only deal with people who are serious investors...we are trying to get some real money around here!"
So .I guess Apmex
is still my best resource for buying and selling precious metals!
