Precious Metals Dealers

precious metals dealers

GoldStar Trust Company has relationships with over two hundred precious metals dealers in the United States and Canada. You may purchase precious metals from any dealer you choose, however, GoldStar will not process a payment from your account without first performing routine due diligence on the dealer you request.

We require the dealer to:

  1. complete and return our Dealer Questionnaire
  2. wait for the due diligence process to be completed (about 1 business day)
  3. complete and return our dealer contract

research before you buy

We encourage you to do your own research and educate yourself before making any investment. Be an informed consumer!

  • Precious metals terms: Be aware of different terms used and what they mean such as spot, bid, and ask pricing.
  • Dealer affiliations: Is your dealer a member of the Professional Numismatists Guild or the American Numismatic Association? If so, they must abide by a code of conduct and resolve legitimate disputes or lose their membership.
  • Dealer history: Find out any information you can about a company’s history and reputation from their own website as well as a number of different unbiased sources. Beware of dealers you cannot find information about.
  • Better Business Bureau rating: To find a company’s BBB accreditation and rating, type the name into the BBB’s national search tool.
