I liked the people I talked to in Monetary Gold. Their customer service made me decide to go with them. The rep seemed very experienced and knowledgeable and we related well together. We just hit it off. Mostly, I relied on her knowledge to make recommendations. We had some discussions about a few things that she modified because of things I wanted but I went ahead with 90% of what she recommended. I went this route for diversification from equities. I didn’t want it all sitting in equities and cash. If some of the worst things happen, I may still have options available that wouldn't be available otherwise. So it's like an insurance policy. You hope you don't need it but glad you got it.

Something about Monetary Gold came on my email for some reason. I also saw it in some kind of flyer, newspaper, or magazine. I asked for information and they contacted me. I have others that, for some reason, I was really getting information about. I already started with somebody then somebody contacted me from Monetary. I realized I talked to them also and they were nice. I decided to go with them on one account. I have been there just a few months now and they've been very helpful. Even in the transferring of my accounts, they help me with all those. I wouldn't have known how to do all the things that they had to do with me. I've been satisfied with them so far.
Monetary Gold's service has been phenomenal. Their responses have been very quick and timely. They've gone the extra mile every single time I have ever needed them to do anything for me. My rep is David who is the VP of the company. If there were any major changes or recommendations, he would call me right away. For the legwork stuff, there's a woman there named Andrea and she is absolutely terrific. She would let me know if things have shifted and have been completed. I did a rollover from my 401(k) and she handled all the details of that and did a fantastic job. She took such a load off me. Their investment advice and recommendations are really right on track with everything else that I'm comparing them to. They give me good, accurate information.
I was aware of all the investment companies. There's one played all the time with a movie star and I also went to Blue Vault. I eventually sent the money from that silver to Monetary Gold and to a person by the name of Eric. Monetary Gold is a good company. My wife was very skeptical about them because a lot of places are open for short periods of time and have only a few number of employees. I looked further into Monetary Gold and they have been around longer than she thought. They have quite a number more of employees than three. Eric is one of them. He was the man who helped me to purchase the numismatic coins. Now, they have a tape that states that they are not investors, but they assist people in investing.
I spoke to Eric and to someone else from another major gold company. After speaking to Eric a few times and his secretary, Andrea, who was very helpful and efficient, I got the impression that they were professional. They've been courteous too. I wish people where I work have all been as good an employee as they have been. I got a very good feeling from the two. Eric had my best interest at heart and so far, I've had a very good experience. He's done exactly what he said. I have checked on the computer for the facts of what he's told me prior to me joining him financially and putting any money in with him, and they've been accurate. He was talking about one coin in particular not making any money, and I often wondered why that particular coin. I found it just popped up and he was correct about that too. He was telling me that months ago, but I just found the video that proves his point.
I'm thinking of putting more money with him. I'm just not sure I wanna check the facts of where the money will go from here. I have $20,000 at 4%. I'm gonna look both ways then I'm gonna make a decision and call him up. He knows what he's doing. I waited a long time before I took a step with him. Nobody should put $50,000 into someone else's hands without being a little suspicious and doing a lot of fact-checking.
My investment was somewhere else for almost 3 years. I told the fellow who's working for Monetary Gold that I would like to transfer my account to them. He called and they transferred my account immediately. I transferred my money into Monetary Gold because I thought it will be a better investment for me for in 5,6 years. I watch the stock market all the time and I figured it out that gold is doing better. People are transferring into gold because stocks are fluctuating too much too frequently.
I bought some investment in gold and silver from Monetary Gold and the process happened very quickly. The guy spoke to me and very openly explained to me how will it work. He told me give 4,5 years and my money will be better. I trust him because he's in this business. He seems to be a nice, honest person to speak to. He told me to call anytime if I want to or if I need any further information. I am curious to know if they send any statement about it or any information on how it is doing and how much growth is done.
I knew I had to do something with my IRA but was not totally sure what. I talked to several different companies and decided to put it in previous metals. The company I decided to go with was Monetary Gold, I felt I could trust them. The person I had the most contact with is Andrea in the IRA department. Andrea help me so much as this was totally new to me. I would recommend Monetarygold to all my friends and family. I am looking forward to a successful experience with them.
It is a sincere pleasure to do business with Monetary Gold, and I would heartily recommend them to anyone. Their professionalism, knowledge and experience, and strong client service are second to none. I am fully confident in them. Thank you, Monetary Gold!
Yes, I was pleased with my questions answered politely and with patience. The staff understood my concerns and I felt at ease with their responses. It also helped to have a good rating with the BBB that helped with all of the above. I look forward to my future progress on my investments, down the road. Thank You.
We have a very nice experience with Momentary Gold so far. Everybody has been congenial, helpful and kind. I invested in some gold, silver and platinum. The rep I worked with was extremely professional. She said she would put a package together for me. She said that way, I'd have a little bit of everything. I left it up to her 'cause she's the expert. So far, working with them feels good.
I wasn't sure I was making a wise choice, yet I didn't want to face another major stock loss because of our current political climate. I read about three metals companies and chose Monetary Gold. I talked with Di ** and after a few conversations I decided to do it. Di was very helpful. A week or so after the account was set up my husband questioned my decision. I called Di and she answered all his questions -- while she was at an airport. I'm happy with Monetary Gold; now I just hope my decision to make the move was the right one.
I would recommend Monetary Gold to others. The people were nice on the phone and they weren't pushy. They felt concerned and knew what they were talking about. They were knowledgeable and presented everything in a way that you didn't feel like you had to do it. With Monetary Gold, my retirement is into precious metals and not just sitting in the bank waiting for it to be consumed by the government.
I really like the thoroughness and time that is taken to be sure that customers are informed of what is happening and how everything will work. It's comforting in today's world to know that you can contact representatives who will call you back immediately and answer and explain anything you may have questions about. Precise and efficient and this works well for us.
My experience was adequate. I purchased some metals which I still have in a depository. Monetary Gold contacted me. I had not discussed precious metals with any other company, but I had been thinking about it. I got what I thought was adequate information about the balance of how the metal should be balanced, as far as what percentage in gold and what percentage in platinum and so forth. I thought it was reasonable. I would do it again if I were in the same situation and looking to acquire precious metals.
I would like some follow up on things that are going on in the market. I talked with a couple of other outlets but Monetary Gold never supplied me any compelling evidence of why I should even get in that market. Other than that, the customer service was pretty good.
David, the agent I worked with, was good.
Monetary Gold was a better product at the time. The representative was good. Usually, if I start having issues with the rep, I don't like the operation, then I just jump out of it. Recently, I felt like I needed to make a change and that's what I did. I wasn't really happy with the previous bunch. I felt comfortable working with them 'cause I dealt with people like that before and I felt pretty much at home. I've had some improvements. I feel like I'm making more money out of the whole thing than what I was previously. That's what I was hoping for, the price will catch up from before.
Monetary Gold was talking about ways to lessen the impact of this social unrest and whatnot on my retirement savings, so I started looking into it. They seemed to be nice people to work with after I got to talking to them so I stayed with them. I researched on their references and so far, seemed to be that they were treating me well. We converted some of my IRAs into precious metals. Silver and gold were the main emphases. The reps were very helpful and answered my questions. They were very professional. I have no problem recommending them to anybody else.
