We were looking for the right place to put our IRA that would hopefully be a shelter in a storm. In each conversation with Brandon, the senior account executive at Monetary Gold, we had a growing sense that we had found the right harbor. At no time was any pressure put on us so that we would feel rushed into a decision. It was a matter of his gracious presence, broad knowledge of the world of finance, and genuine interest in our well-being whatever we might decide to do. He invited us to explore with him, ask any questions, and naturally we did look at options with other institutions. But we always felt at peace with his competence, openness, and true respect for our desire to discover the right path for us. With his good-natured and easygoing accompaniment, we were led over a period of time to open an account with Monetary Gold. We are glad and at peace about it. Kathleen M.

    As a first time investor, with a special mention to Brandon ** and Charles **, my decision to choose this firm and the process was seamless. Brandon and Charles were extremely informative and patient with many questions that I posed. Through their calming demeanor and kindness throughout our phone conversations, I felt I was making the right choice to invest with as well as join the Monetary Gold family. Happy trails to the family of investors at Monetary Gold! May we all see our fortunes real soon. God bless us all.

    Original review: Nov. 8, 2021

    For what seems like much of my adult life, I have been a collector of precious metals in bullion form. But with uncertain governmental monetary policy stalking sound money practice, I had become increasingly less certain that my financial preparations were safe and sufficient for future needs for my family. So I began a search for a source to guide me through the minefield of competitive money sharks and gurus.

    Believing that prayer helps, I asked to find the right guidance. online I came upon Monetary Gold (BBB rated A+). Subsequent conversations with Nicholas ** were encouraging. His patience and knowledge was the education I needed to gain trust again to move forward in my financial affairs from Bullion to Privacy Metals. Nicholas is the steady hand I needed on my shoulder. He keeps his word and delivers as promised always. Now my wife and I are satisfied as we begin our long term relationship with Nicholas and Monetary Gold.

    My experience with Monetary Gold has been great. Dealing with Mr. ** has been a pleasure. We talked on the phone several times before, during and after the transactions. He has always been very informative and sent me some very informational reports. He has also called to see how my wife and I are doing once he became aware of an illness in the family. He is very pleasant and easy to talk to. So far I moved over an IRA and made two purchases of physical metal which came really quickly. I recommend Monetary Gold and I will continue to do business with them.

    Carlos,

    Thank you for such great words. We are happy to welcome you into the Monetary Gold family and look forward to a long relationship. We wish you all the best of success.

    Back a few months my wife and myself decided to look into purchasing precious metals, we had no clue how to start the process. After doing some research finally we decided to go Monetary Gold. On paper they were a solid company with solid ratings but we needed more than that to be confident in what we were doing. I was contacted by one of their representatives a Mr. Jeff ** (no relation to the great guitarist Jeff Beck but I was hopeful). We had a wonderful conversation that day. Jeff answered every question we and educated on how we could obtain our goals and provided us with exceptional guidance. It was about a week later we had another conversation and once again felt very confident in the information he provided and in the way he presented the information. Jeff is very professional and a down to earth guy who is easy to communicate with.

    We made our first Gold and Silver purchase a few days later, which required transferring funds from a Roth IRA which Jeff and Angela handled from start to finish. We have since made 3 more Precious Metals Purchases and now have a solid foundation to build on to help make our retirement a little more secure. All this wouldn’t have happened if we were not completely comfortable with Jeff and Angela and all those at Monetary Gold who helped us get started. We consider Jeff and the staff at Monetary Gold as part of our family, and we look forward to adding to our investment over the years to come. Thank for helping us secure a future for Ourselves and our Children and Grandchildren. I appreciate you Jeff **.

    It has been truly a pleasure working with Monetary Gold, From the beginning they took my information and contacted my 457 plan and had it transferred to my new account with them. It could not have been easier. I have been impressed with their professionalism and speed with which they put together this deal. Sincerely, Renee **.

    It was a experience dealing with him. Jonathan answered all my question. It was a easy transition to move money from my IRA to an IRA Monetary Gold account. They did all the paperwork. Then got back to me when done.

    I recently became a customer of Monetary Gold. My experience with Monetary Gold representative, Jonathan **, was extremely professional, informative, and detailed. Mr. ** took me step by step through the benefits of obtaining gold and silver as a profitable investment. He thoroughly presented each investment option and their advantages until clearly understood them. I even received a purchase discount by getting in on a bulk order by Monetary Gold. I would recommend Monetary Gold as an investment company to all my friends and relatives.

    Sincerely,

    Eddie Arnado

    Hi Edward,

    That's awesome! Those bulk purchases don't happen all the time, so cashing in on that was a good choice. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. This just helps us improve our customer service.

    Thank you again,

    After much research I went with Monetary Gold, because Eric ** and his associates made the transaction very easy and uncomplicated and gave the best advice during the process, very informative and professional. I will highly recommend to anyone who’s looking to invest in precious metals to get in touch with the folks at Monetary Gold.

    I was ready to start investing in gold and silver. I researched who I wanted to represent me as a dealer/agent. I decided Monetary Gold was the best. Since my transaction, I have been very pleased with the professionalism and urgency of my transaction.
