    I'd been thinking about investing in precious metals for a while. I went on the internet and I looked at several. Orion was at the top of the list. They have really good reviews. I called and they were very informative about everything. The man that I spoke to told me how it works. He gave me recommendations. Since I'm new to it, after I've been in a few months and see what it goes like, he said I can change it at any time, whatever I want to do. So that's what I did. Everything's top notch. They've stayed in touch with me ever since I opened the account. I have their number if I ever need any questions answered. I'm well pleased with them.

      I was supposed to get a monthly statement, but I have never received one so I don't know anything about that. Orion Metal Exchange asked me, “Do you want quarterly, once a year or once a month?” I just said once a month. Everything else went smooth. The guy that helped me out was good. He kept calling me and I was having my money in a 401(k) and the stock market was going up and down, up and down. I got a bad feeling that it would go south. That guy just kept calling me and he called me at the right time. I said, “Yeah. Hell, yeah. Let's move it all over.” Whoever that guy was, he was persistent and top-notch.

      It was hard to transfer that money from E-Trade. They were talking in a language I didn't understand. But the lady got on the phone three-way and could answer. It was kinda Hispanic lady at E-Trade. I could hardly understand what she was asking or saying, but Orion's lady did wonderful as far as being able to answer questions and getting the money transferred. I’m happy.

      I didn’t want to get into stocks so I thought I’d try Orion. They seemed to be a little more available to give me information. I’m very new to this so I don’t understand a lot of it. When I got my first statement, I was badly shocked. The value that I put in was nowhere near the value that it was rated at. The guy explained it to me later. He was good and always informative. I had one place that I was going to be dealing with prior to this and the man that I talked to initially was very nice. They put me to this guy that does the final contracts and he made me feel like I was stupid.

      I’m still not secure in the dealing of all of this but it seems to be doing okay. At least it’s going up. I’m not losing. It just wasn’t what I thought I was getting into. I wasn't explained about it prior. I assumed that it was going to be the actual metal. Instead, it was coins and the coin value is different than the metal value. I didn't realize all that when I placed the order. I’d know next time when I add to it.

      I did a lot of research on the internet. I looked at not just Google reviews but other customer reviews as well, and they were consistent in terms of the service they gave their customers. Most of all, the exchange has the same products that you could buy, so I wanted to find a company that had been around a while. Orion Metal Exchange had a website, you talk to a human and it wasn't just one of the many that are out there on the internet. They were established. Those are some of the reasons that I chose them. They were responsive as well. When I called them, they gave me an analysis of each of the products that I was considering.

      I ultimately decided to use them. In the initial conversation on the phone, they answered my questions. I also had a couple of subsequent email follow-ups from them. I made sure to ask about the grade of the coins and they gave me that information. I don't think they withheld or were unknowledgeable about anything. I didn't have any confusion about the product or the shipment of it based on their responses. They don't stock the product at their own facilities, but once they ordered it, they let me know when the product I decided on was going to be shipped.

      They also gave me an update as to when they expected the product would arrive. It came when it was promised, and it was secured and in the condition that was promised as well. All those factors together, I thought I've made a wise decision. In terms of servicing me throughout the process, it was a five-star performance on their part. They were good, and they must have liked my business. I even got a Christmas card from them, which was unanticipated.

      I highly recommend Jacob B. With Orion. I’ve known him professionally for many years and didn’t hesitate to call him once I was ready to invest in precious metals. He was patient, extremely knowledgeable and took his time discussing all my options. Jacob educated me and after speaking with him over a week I was 100 confident in my decision. Orion metal enhance has some of the lowest prices in the country and is ethical and honest. Thank you for your help. I will recommend them to friends and family.

      For the past three years I have relied upon Orion Metal Exchange for a variety of services. The team has successfully helped me move my fiat US dollars into Silver Coins (3 times) and facilitated the transfer of my $$ IRA into a Platinum IRA. They always have the time to explain even basic metal currency questions and are clear about the best times to make this investments. I highly recommend them!

      I was searching on the internet for a place to purchase some gold and silver. I read the reviews on Orion and they all seemed really good, so I went with Orion. The rep I worked with was very knowledgeable, helpful and very professional. They answered my questions very well.

      Orion had A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and seemed to be grouped with other reputable companies. I was new to this product so I picked them. My rep, Griselda, was very helpful. She allayed my fears and kept helping me get through it.

      Orion was good. The person that I talked to on the phone, as far as switching out the IRA, was nice. It wasn't a huge investment but they seemed nice enough. It's just that after I got in, the silver dropped. But they can't control what the market's gonna be.
