Q&A For First-Time Buyers
Buy gold with confidence – here’s how!
What kind of gold can I buy?
Gold bullion coins and investment grade gold coins that have added “numismatic” value above the market value of gold. Blanchard and Company, Inc. offers the purest, most highly regarded American and foreign gold
bullion coins, such as the gold American Eagle and the Austrian Vienna Philharmonic, as well as two of the most highly prized
investment grade gold coins available, the Saint-Gaudens $20 “double eagle” and the $20 Liberty gold coins. Our investment experts can help you decide what’s best for you or see our recommended gold buys.
How can I get the best price?
Just as stock prices can change in an instant, gold bullion prices
also fluctuate daily or even hourly. The
bullion prices on our website are updated constantly Monday through Friday, from 8am
to 5pm* CST. These bullion prices are based on the market price
of the metals. You never pay more than the going market price plus
a small premium for minting and distribution.
No Hidden Fees, Commissions or Charges
Our bullion prices and shipping and handling fees
are quoted as part of your order, with no other charges. Even in today’s
demand market we continue to offer our same standard bullion pricing.
