Mr Thomas has also personally received the prestigious Presidential Award from the ANA (American Numismatic Association), which is impressive. Apmex has a leadership team of 9, with all their information published on the website.

Website: www.apmex.com – the website is massive, but then you would expect that from a company that offers so many gold and silver products. The navigation is made up of top picks,  with gold, silver and platinum being separated. Because of the vast array of products on offer, it may be best if you know before hand what you are looking for. In their ‘other items’ navigation they offer copper, storage boxes, currencies, and jewelry.

Gold IRA Rollover

Apmex does provide you with the facility for investing gold into your IRA. They do have an impressive selection of gold coins and do also sell bullion, a total of over 1400 products. If you do wish to add gold to your IRA through Apmex, you have to deal with their separate IRA department. However, unlike other gold ira companies, Apmex do not offer a direct custodian service. They suggest 6 different custodian companies, which means you will have to contact them all and compare their fees etc before you set up your gold IRA account.

Things To Consider

If you are looking to set up a gold IRA and with Apmex having a number of custodians to choose from rather offering the service themselves, you may want to consider your options.

Apmex Reviews Summary

Apmex is the largest provider of precious metals, on the market. As a gold IRA provider, their focus in primarily in coins rather than bullion. If you are a collector, then they are a great company to deal with due to the vast selection of coins.
