If you want to make a bullion purchase call us,
we will cancel most bullion purchases made online. The premiums are changing too
fast for us to make all the necessary changes to the website.
At www.ValleyCoin.com, we have many ways to help you
accumulate your own treasure trove. You
choose your price level and we do the rest.
www.ValleyCoin.com and its owner have been dealing in rare coins and
precious metals for over 20 years. Nobody
knows how the precious metals markets will perform in the future, but many
people foresee much higher prices in the not too distant future. The
accumulation strategy we recommend is to buy smaller quantities at regular
intervals, and make larger purchases (or sales) when the metals hit your target
levels. For example, if silver is trading in the $9 to $11 range, make small
purchases at regular intervals. If silver drops to $8, make a larger
purchase. If it drops more, make another larger purchase. If silver
goes up to $13, sell a portion of your holdings. If it goes up more, sell
another portion. You just need to decide how much you want to buy, and at
what levels to set your target buy and sell prices.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You choose the price level and precious metals mix, and add
it to your shopping cart. Send your
payment with a copy of the invoice, and your bullion will soon be in the mail.
After that, we'll send you an invoice by email in the first week of every month.
When we get your payment, we will
use the closing ask price on the New York market on that day. The amount
of silver will vary each month depending on the precious metals markets
prices. In a high or rising market, you will get less metal, and in a
falling or low market you will get more.
WHAT KIND OF BULLION SHOULD I BUY?
You want to buy bullion in a recognizable, easily traded
form, with low premiums. We recommend 90% silver coin (dimes, quarters and
halves minted for circulation 1964 and earlier), 999 fine silver bars or rounds,
and tenth, quarter, half and one ounce Gold and Platinum Eagles. Other
forms of silver bullion, like Silver Eagles, have higher premiums and may not be
as easy to trade. Other forms of gold bullion, like Maple Leafs or Krugerrands,
are viable alternatives, but availability can be limited, especially in
fractional sizes. Let us know if you want an alternative to our standard
offers, and we will work with you.
HOW MUCH PRECIOUS METAL WILL I GET?
The formula we use is posted in the description of each
item. We strive to keep our prices
competitive. Keep in mind, the
formulas are subject to change due to changing market conditions. $1.00
face value of 90% silver coin has 0.715 troy ounces of pure silver.
DO I HAVE TO SIGN A CONTRACT?
No! You can
start or stop the program at any time. You
can raise or lower your participation at any time.
You can make a one-time-only purchase, or make regular purchases.
We can work with you if another timing structure or metals mix works
better for you.
HOW CAN I MAKE PAYMENT?
Because this is a bullion item, we are not able to accept
credit cards or online payments. We
can accept cash, personal check, Cashier's Check, or Money Order.
Cash and Postal Money Order payments will receive priority processing.
Otherwise, we will wait for the payment to clear before shipping.
HOW IS MY BULLION SHIPPED?
Shipping is in addition to the cost of the bullion. We use the US Postal Service either First Class or Priority
Mail (depending on the weight), either Insured or Registered (depending on the
value). We will require that you
purchase insurance. Since we have a
flat fee of $5.49 for shipping, anything else you order from our website has no
additional shipping charge.
WHEN THE TIME COMES, HOW DO I SELL THE BULLION?
We are always interested in buying all kinds of coins,
currency and precious metals. When
you are ready to sell, call us and we will quote you our competitive buy prices.
SOME FINE PRINT:
We will lock the
prices in when we receive payment unless you specifically instruct us
otherwise. We do not lock in the price until we have payment in
hand. We use Kitco.com for bullion quotes. We are not responsible if
Kitco.com makes a mistake. If bullion prices advance to the point
that we can no longer supply, for example, the stated size gold coin, we will
drop down to a smaller size (at the premium for the smaller size) or convert the
order to silver. If you do not pay a sufficient amount for shipping and/or
insurance, we will reduce the amount of metal you get to cover the shipping and
insurance. We do not ship until the payment has cleared. Terms,
conditions and formulas are subject to change. Be sure to check item
descriptions for changes in terms, conditions or formulas before placing or
paying for your order. Once we have processed your payment, the
transaction will be considered final. Since these are bullion items we do
not accept returns, except in the unlikely event that we sent the wrong
item. However, we are always willing to buy precious metals at current
wholesale market levels. Occasionally, the dynamic precious metals market requires a higher or allows a lower than normal premium. In general, a rapidly falling market requires a higher than normal premium and and rapidly rising market allows a higher than normal discount.
