"We have among the lowest prices in the industry." — Peter Schiff
The coins and bars below are our most heavily purchased products. You will see no numismatic coins, proof sets, special editions, etc., because we do not recommend such items to serious investors.

One of the biggest concerns I had when purchasing precious metals for the first time was sending funds overseas to a company that was new to me. However, I was put at ease from the fact that my friend had taken in large deliveries from Euro Pacific Precious Metals without a hitch. I was guided through the entire process, including delivery to my door in Hong Kong. I am now preparing for my fourth order, and can confidently recommend the customer service and reliability of Euro Pacific Precious Metals.
Over the past several years my wife and I had purchased gold and silver from a number of companies and, quite frankly, were never totally comfortable with the way they pushed numismatic coins. After we placed an order for Double Eagles with Euro Pacific Precious Metals, you called me back and explained how we could get a better price for Maple Leafs because of the surcharge imposed by the US Mint on Double Eagles. Then I faxed to you the list of numismatic coins I had purchased from other companies, and your appraiser actually made us a better offer for exchanging the coins for more Maple Leafs. I extol the virtues of Euro Pacific Precious Metals to whomever I get the chance.
My order came safe and sound, and I have been telling others that Euro Pacific is the best way to buy physical gold. The company we bought from before we changed to Euro Pacific asked for social security numbers AND sold our name to many aggressive coin sellers who hound us all the time. Euro Pacific is so so so much better to deal with, by far! Clean, kind with no bad after taste!
Thanks again for your excellent service. You have my future business for sure and I won't hesitate to recommend your company to anyone looking to invest. It's a pleasure doing business with your company.
Euro Pacific Precious Metals is not one of the 'name brand' gold sellers one hears about constantly on TV. But I follow Peter's commentary on the market and his thoughts on gold, and felt I would give his company a try. I'm glad I did. While others tout 'Get your gold in ten days or less,' I received mine the NEXT day! This type of customer service is just great, and the automated reminders and confirmations make it extremely easy to do business. From what I've experienced so far, I'm pleased with having chosen Euro Pacific Precious Metals. Thanks.
I'm very happy with your service. Looking forward to working with you more in the future. Thanks!
The 22-karat American Gold Eagle is the official bullion coin of the United States. It was first introduced by the U.S. Mint in 1986. The coin bears images of the eagle and Lady Liberty. The coin's weight and content are guaranteed by the Government of the United States of America.
We also carry fractional American Gold Eagles in 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10th of an ounce denominations.
The Royal Canadian Mint started producing the Maple Leaf in 1979, and has since become one of the world's most popular pure bullion coins. Trusted for its purity (the first coin to ever reach a purity of .9999 fine) and admired for its design, this coin is legal tender in Canada.
We also carry fractional Maple Leafs in 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10th of an ounce denominations.
We recommend that serious investors in gold and silver choose only bullion coins or bars. And within that category, buyers are wise to stick with industry standard coins: American Eagle, Canadian Maple Leaf, Australian Kangaroo, South African Krugerrand.
We have seen numerous companies selling exotic or commemorative coins: French, Russian, Mexican, and many others. With all the products out there, it can be extra difficult to know if you're buying the genuine article. Remember, these items are for preserving your wealth, not for beauty or romance.
In gold, we recommend buying either the 1 ounce gold coin or bar, or 10 ounce or one kilo bars.
In silver, we recommend the 1 ounce coin, or 10 or 100 ounce bars. We also carry $1,000 face value bags of "Junk Silver" (previously circulated silver coins).
However, we can deal in almost any coin or bar that is commonly traded. While we recommend the products described previously, just let us know if you're interested in other items and we'll happily accommodate your needs.
Our prices are among the very lowest in the precious metals business. Because of our high volume of transactions, we are able to purchase at the steepest discounts, and pass the savings along to our customers. We will work hard to earn your business.
In addition to excellent pricing, we provide diligent and attentive customer service. Additionally, our clients receive exclusive access to Peter Schiff's insights and recommendations. We custom build an experience that is suited to your needs. This is what sets us apart from the competition.
We do business the old-fashioned way: in person, over the telephone, or by email. We do not offer online purchases. Many online companies rely on deceptive pricing, hidden costs, and worse. Our prices and costs are transparent and total. We still believe that a one-on-one relationship works best. Call us at (888) 465-3160 to learn more about our low prices. If you qualify, we'll be happy to lock in a price for you immediately. Any way that you choose to do business with us, you'll find out that our word is our bond.
Integrity is just as important as good pricing. Many of the relationships we've built are with customers who were dissatisfied with their other dealers. Either these companies had sold at a high cost, recommended collectible or numismatic products at extravagant premiums, delivered slowly, or just lacked a personal touch. As a matter of policy, we sell only bullion products, bars and coins. We do not sell numismatics, semi-numismatics, proof sets, leveraged trading accounts, or other "dangerous" products.
Honesty and fair dealing are the hallmarks of Euro Pacific Precious Metals and Peter Schiff, and our fully satisfied customers sleep well at night. We look forward to earning your business.
We have nothing against collecting numismatic coins for aesthetic or hobby reasons. Many are indeed beautiful, and have wonderful historic provenance. However, we argue that for two critical reasons numismatic coins generally make for poor investments.
First is the mark-ups or commissions. It is not uncommon to see mark-ups of 20% to 35% on numismatic coins. That means that the underlying value of the coin may have to appreciate by 35% before you break even on a sale.
Would you buy a stock if your broker charged you a commission of 35%? We have our roots in the securities industry, where commissions are far lower, which is part of why we do not sell numismatic coins.
In addition, liquidity may be severely limited for little-known, unusual, or exotic coins. Unless the dealer has an immediate need for the coin you purchased, he may be reluctant to repurchase it from you. At that point, you would be on your own to track down another buyer. In contrast, bullion coins are a fungible commodity for which there is always a ready, liquid, and transparent global market.
Integrity and reliability cannot be taken for granted. The precious metals field is completely unregulated. Dealers of dubious reputation are not uncommon, as are investing schemes that sound good, but are often rigged to bilk unsuspecting buyers.
In times of economic uncertainty, shady operators take advantage of the urgent and emotional demand for precious metals by jumping into the marketplace. In such an environment it is incumbent on the consumer to only do business with trustworthy companies.
Peter Schiff is Chief Executive Officer and Principle Owner of Euro Pacific Precious Metals. Over the years, Peter has developed a sterling reputation as a no-nonsense straight shooter who zealously guards his public image.
Time and again, Mr. Schiff has shown his integrity by telling the truth, even if it costs him popularity or pecuniary benefit. His specific goal with Euro Pacific Precious Metals is to bring honesty, integrity, and fair pricing to the business.
Liquidity is an important factor often overlooked by many investors. There will come a time when you will want to sell. Ready, accessible, worldwide markets exist for the well-known products.
Liquidity presupposes a fast and efficient market, which may not exist for so many of the numismatic and exotic coins that are offered these days. Often, the only buyer for your coins may be the dealer from whom you bought them. Not a healthy situation.
One ounce gold coins and bars from well-known mints are very liquid, and have ready markets anywhere in the world (as do one ounce silver coins, 10, or 100 ounce bars).
Euro Pacific Precious Metals stands ready to travel a two-way street in precious metals products.
