GoldSilver Review

GoldSilver Background Info

The company started by the Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver author Michael Maloney is appropriately named GoldSilver.  Since 2005, Michael has led this brainchild outfit effectively in helping individuals to purchase precious metals either physically outright or as part of a Precious Metals IRA. Besides selling these metals to customers, his firm also buys back these metals which they have sold to clients. They have also earned the respect of their community by donating a portion of all proceeds to help the homeless rehab services in their area of Santa Monica, California.

A downside to Michael’s firm is that their gold and silver selection is rather limited in comparison to some of their big time rivals like Goldline International and Birch Gold. While he does not sell either platinum or palladium coins or bars, GoldSilver does offer a few choices each for coins and bars in both gold and silver formats.

GoldSilver Management Team

Michael Maloney wears many different hats as the founder, management, and owner of, one of the global leaders in gold and silver sales which is also one of the world’s most highly respected investment education companies anywhere. He is also the held-in-awe author of the best selling precious metals investment book of all time, Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver, published back in 2008 to great acclaim around both the country and the world.

Mike’s meteoric rise to fame began when he met world-renowned financial educator and speaker Robert Kiyosaki whose biggest claim to fame lay in the best selling financial education book he wrote entitled Rich Dad, Poor Dad that soon turned into an unbelievably popular series of books. Robert and Mike hit it off, and soon Mike found himself invited to speak for Kiyosaki at one of his seminars that Robert held around the nation. The rest is history.

While Mike continued to successfully speak at global investment seminars, he started back in 2007. He then started working on his soon to be hit book. From the smash success of this work, he launched his in 2010 as a new environment where he could assist individuals by empowering them and eduating them on how to protect their wealth and to also gain from the largest wealth transfer in all of human history that is ongoing now.

The best way to purchase gold or silver is through There is no chance of getting ripped off and you’re dealing with professionals.
Dave N.
The information GoldSilver provides is priceless and their – open door policy – gives insight to exactly what moves they are making and how to make sense of it all. Thank you for a very helpful book.
GoldSilver is the only company I will recommend ever. Not only do they sell and buy back product but they provide information and educational resources that no other company can offer. GoldSilver empowers investors with plainspoken and straightforward info. and I feel confident knowing I am now on the same side as this great company. GoldSilver is the “Apple” of the precious metals market!

Review Summary :
Best-selling author Michael Maloney's Gold and Silver Dealer does not have the selection of its competitors. They also do not charge the account setup fees that most others in the industry do. We like that what he lacks in variety of coins for Gold IRA's, he makes up for with an impressive commitment to education for his clients.
