Review: Silver Towne Numismatics

I recently made a purchase of 10 oz. bars from SilverTowne. I ordered on Monday and received it Friday. The bars arrived UPS and were nicely sealed in their own plastic containers. 

I paid the internet price, which was very reasonable, used my CC, and got Free Shipping.

I'd rate my experience as excellent and would recommend them.

They are located in Winchester, IN.

Check the out http://www.silvertowne.com/default.asp

Keep Stacking!

Just ordered

Took a look at the site, like the free shipping part, prices are a touch high but with free shipping I think they are fare.

Got 1-  5 oz silver bar, lets see how they do?

Thanks for the tip.     Me

Yeah, The Free Shipping

Yeah, The Free Shipping kinda made the deal for me. I estimate it saved about $20-$25 over apmex, although apmex does have free shipping on orders over $10g's.

Also, there was no add on for credit card use, but that may be built in on the price.

I did have to sign for my order when the UPS man arrived, but I believe that's the standard.

Good luck and keep stacking!

Hey Speed

I checked out all the others, so far Silver town seems the best over all, Free shipping, no CC add on fee's. Lets see how long it takes to get to AZ.

                       Once again, Thank you.                Me

They seemed to move the location of their 10 oz. bars. Here's a current link.

Still Free Shipping, no 3% add on for credit card.

Not a bad price on the 90% too.

Hey Speed

They moved the bars to the daily special page, I really like that web site, bought 65 oz so far. I'm also still buying from the local boys too.

SilverTowne

I've been buying from SilverTowne for my "monthly" purchases for a few months.  Always fast shipping.  Usually about FRN$2.25-2.75 over spot.  But that INCLUDES credit card fees and shipping and no minimum.  For a small order, SilverTowne is the BEST, IMO.  I've bought the 90% silver, and they've always sent me halves!  I've also bought their 1 oz, 5 oz, and 10 oz bars.  I have nothing but praises for SilverTowne.  DYODD. YMMV. BYOB.

No problems

I have been buying almost weekly from silvertown and have no problems.

Fast service, web site tells me everything I need to know.

Why go any where else.

Silvertown web site has been down all day, hope my order got in on Saturday for shipment.

First time this has happened to me on that site.

Probably just because they

Probably just because they upgraded the whole web site. ;) 

They've tightened my favourite loophole though. :(   I used to be able to put a bar in my cart, and its price would stay the same.  If silver went down, I emptied the cart and added it again for another 10 minutes of bottom seeking. ;)   Now, it annoyingly updates the price even mid-checkout! :(

However, for small purchases, especially with credit card and free shipping, you cannot beat their prices and service!

Thank you, Sir

You were correct, the problem now is, with so much buying going on, they broke the silver town silver mold, the delay is about 2 to 3 weeks. Customer service told me, they also ran out of silver to make bars with as well as everything else.

The cupboards are bare.
