It is the mission of PNG-Accredited Precious Metals Dealer (APMD) program to instill confidence among retail buyers in the precious metals marketplace by adhering to 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. APMD members are known throughout the industry by their reputations for expertise and fairness.
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. 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.
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.
When you choose an APMD dealer, you can feel confident, knowing that you’re doing business with a bullion and precious metals professional who possesses the full measure of Knowledge, Integrity and Responsibility. Whether you’re a novice or experienced buyer or seller, we strongly encourage you to consult with a PNG-APMD dealer to help you with your bullion and other precious metals transactions.
