The Gold Standard of Professionalism for Precious Metal Dealers

Since many PNG dealers handle precious metals in addition to numismatic items, it made perfect sense to establish a premier organization for the benefit of the precious metals consumer as well.

APMD Brochure

Founded in 1955, the Professional Numismatists Guild is a nonprofit organization comprised of the world’s top rare coin, paper money and precious metal experts. The PNG-Accredited Precious Metals program was launched in 2015 to provide a higher level of confidence for precious metal buyers by maintaining the same rigid standards of excellence for our precious metal dealers – and more.

All APMD members must first be PNG members. APMD members must also follow an additional code of ethical business practices specifically applied to the buying and selling of bullion coins and ingots. The APMD is also charged with helping the public learn about bullion coins and ingots, and avoid problems when they make purchases or sell.

As members of the Professional Numismatists Guild, all APMD dealers have had their backgrounds verified and they all have a minimum net worth, but most are known throughout the industry by their reputations for expertise and fairness. Since its inception in 2015, we’re proud that many PNG members have already confirmed the value of an APMD membership and come on board.

Your PNG-Accredited Precious Metal Dealer is not going to be here today, gone tomorrow. He or she is a professional you can always trust.

Mission Statement

It is the mission of Accredited Precious Metals Dealers to instill confidence among retail buyers in the precious metals marketplace by maintaining strict guidelines for membership and by requiring our members to uphold rigid standards of excellence and a high level of integrity in all of their business dealings.
