My family owns and operates a small time fine silver bullion foundry and refinery. Our inventory has been very difficult to keep fully stocked due to heavy demand. So I wanted to start a thread related to the physical bullion market. How is supply in your local markets, coin shops and bullion dealers? Are your dealers able to keep fully stocked up or are they hurting for inventory? Is there inventory overstocked? Are they putting stuff on sale? How are the physical prices where you live? We do our best to keep the prices reasonable but supply and demand are telling me to jack it up! What do you guys think?
All about the physical
My favorite place to sell locally (I buy most of mine online, only sell when I overbuy or unexpected expenses come around) just got shut down because some companies made a few big orders for bullion with him, but then he got robbed (he claims), and he turns out to have been uninsured.
That leaves me with one dedicated dealer in town that I like. This is why you should always and only deal in CASH, not CREDIT when you are acting as a money changer. Those men who placed those orders were fools.
Went to your website. Your hand poured silver bars are beautiful! When I get my next shipment of cash from the old 401k I'm gonna order some for sure. . .
