Phoenix, Arizona's Premier Gold and Silver DealerHeadquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, CMI Gold & Silver Inc. is one of the oldest gold and silver dealers in the United States and has played a major role in introducing investors to the gold and silver markets. Although domiciled in Phoenix, Arizona, CMIGS buys and sells gold and silver with investors across the United States.
Why Phoenix, Arizona?Because Arizona is the nation's largest copper producing state and the nation's fifth-largest silver producer, Phoenix is also the home of major mining companies. In 1973, when silver was only $2.00, CMIGS' founder, a longtime Phoenix resident with ties to Arizona's mining interests, recognized the growing uses for silver and the dwindling silver stockpiles would result in higher silver prices. Consequently, CMIGS was launched to sell silver bullion to investors. In 1980, silver topped $50.
Our Mission:As a gold and silver dealer, CMIGS' mission is to guide and direct investors into the precious metal that best fits their investment goals, while offering the lowest prices available. This includes advising investors as to which precious metal holds, in CMIGS' analysis, the greatest upside potential. We also consider it our responsibility to warn investors to avoid telemarketer-promoted gold and silver coins that are grossly overpriced.(See Myths, Misunderstandings, and Outright Lies and Old U.S. Gold Coins.)
CMIGS also has as its mission the education of precious metals investors as to the benefits--and dangers--of the precious metals markets. We do this through this website and our Monetary Digest newsletter, which covers economic, political, and social developments that affect precious metals prices. Monetary Digest is published exclusively for CMIGS clients.
Our Promise:We will recommend only those precious metals investments that we believe will provide you the biggest profits, not the ones that provide us the biggest profits. We also recognize that many people buy precious metals not for "profits" but for "insurance." In such cases, we recommend the precious metal that we believe will meet those goals.
Minimum OrdersThe minimum orders for bullion purchases at CMIGS are five ounces of gold, platinum, or palladium. The minimum order for silver bullion (.999 fine) is 300 ounces. The minimum order for pre-1965 circulated 90% silver coins is a $500 face value bag, which is approximately 357.50 ounces of silver.
