It would be useful to have a list of reliable precious metals merchants who accept bc. I shall start.

Amagi Metals -- Sells PMs for bitcoins. Does not buy, but plans to buy in future. I ordered one krugerrand on 4/7/13. It arrived on 4/10/13. Outstanding service! See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=130831.120

Bitcoin Commodities -- Sells PMs for bitcoins. Does not buy. Dennis Draiber is in Berlin, but for U.S. customers he drop-ships merchandise out of Apmex in Oklahoma. I ordered one krugerrand on 4/8/13. It arrived on 4/17/13. See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=99733

Coinabul -- Oldest PM/BTC merchant. Unreliable, see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=149253.0

GoldSilverBitcoin.com -- Placed order on 4/19/13. Arrived 4/30/13. Coins rattling around loose in box.  See also https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=156256.0

There is also http://bitcoincommodities.com/

Of the several businesses like this that I know of, only Amagi Metals (see my signature line) was in business before bitcoin. It is not a "bitcoin business", but an actual business that adopted bitcoin as a payment option.

Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.

Thanks. I just ordered something from them. Apparently, Dennis Daiber is in Berlin, but drop-ships out of Apmex for U.S. customers. I shall post the outcome here and on

I would be highly interested in hearing some people's experiences with Amagi Metals

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

I placed an order for one krugerrand on Sunday 7 Apr. As of 8 Apr it shows as "processing". Check back here for the latest.
Update 9 Apr, they emailed me today that it shipped.
Update 11 Apr: I just received the kruggerrand that I ordered from Amagi last Sunday. Outstanding service!

It sounds like they've done a lot of business with forum members, and there haven't been many complaints. They seem very responsive to customer comments on this thread. I will be placing an order tonight.

I have ordered from Amagi Metals and had a good experience. Recommended.

I also sell gold, but in a form more intended for use as an alternative currency than as an investment. ShireSilver.com Our Twentieth Gram Gold Card is the world's smallest physical gold trade unit.
Note that our integrated bitcoin acceptance is temporarily down, but we can do it the old fashioned way.

Shire Silver, a better bullion that fits in your wallet. Get some, now accepting bitcoin!

I ordered a few items that were on backorder (physical silver is hard to come by if you are stuck on certain pieces, if you're willing to take anything there's usually something available) Everything arrived well packaged fairly quickly after being shipped (international)

Currently have my 2nd order in with them, again something that was backordered. Has since been shipped and I hope to get it in a week or two.

Thanks everyone for providing your experiences. I have made identical purchases from 4 of the most popular online stores that offer precious metals for bitcoin. There were a surprising number of unexpected things that occurred during these purchases, and I've documented everything that happened at a website I built for this purpose.

http://buygoldwithbitcoin.com

If you're thinking of buying gold with bitcoin you might first read my reviews and keep up on the latest news. And please leave some comments regarding your recent purchases!

During my first two purchases from Amagi Metals and Agora Commodities, something unexpected happened in the latter which added a ridiculous additional shipping fee when ordering in bitcoin. All these screenshots are provided. Agora has since gifted me an extra coin for the overcharge.

I hope this information is useful to the bitcoin community. I have two more reviews to publish from the first test purchase, and another four purchases should be scheduled soon. It takes a lot of time with all the screenshots. I have no idea how much interest this is drawing. If you like it, please share it forward. Happy stacking!

When you buy gold with bitcoin - protect yourself from surprises by reading my reviews. BuyGoldWithBitcoin.com

I am also selling gold and silver for bitcoin at http://www.au-btc.com/.

Silver and gold Eagles, Maples, Britannias and Krugerrands, as well as graded PCGS slabbed coins.

Planning to add more products in the future.

Great list! I heard of some company that was allowing you to buy physical gold with XRPs (Ripple's native currency). It sounded good, but given everything that's going on with Ripple I don't know if I'd trust going this route.

I know this might be be what this thread is for but another idea for buying gold is you can easily get amazon gift cards with BTC and then buy gold through there. I've done that before. Might have to check, not sure whether it's cheaper to buy through vendors or on amazon.

This thread needs an update as things quickly change around here.

Amagi Metals is unrealiable these days, see the thread here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=130831.120.
Coinabul is/was a scam, see thread here https://goldstockbull.com/articles/warning-buy-gold-silver-coinabul/
Agora Commodities changed to Veldt Gold.

There are a few other providers on the scene and after buying gold from them we collected details here https://plusbitcoin.net/buy-gold-with-bitcoin/.

Thanks for tip mate!

Gold is actually the best store of value you can have. It is a good idea to keep some. I might as well get some on my portfolio.

I would definitely add https://bullion79.com/ to the list. They ship worldwide, their prices are pretty competitive and what's most important - they're legit. They run a few businesses in the gold/silver niche in Poland (operating under company name 79Element) and deliver authentic products  Wink

Is this shop trusted? How are their reviews? Buying gold and jewlery online could be tricky, you can't check if it's real and worthy or not. Do they send some kind of certificates of origins? It's not easy to find trustworthy web seller.

Found this topic searching for gold.  I wanted to update the list with these two sites.

https://www.jmbullion.com

I have used JMB several times and they are awesome.  For $9.99 i get 2 day air shipping but if I order early morning I get the coins the next day.


https://www.providentmetals.com/

I have not used these guys yet but my next order will be with them.  I'll update with feedback
