APMD - Founded on Inegrity


Launched in 2015 by the Professional Numismatists Guild, the Accredited Precious Metals Dealers program was developed to provide an even higher level of confidence for precious metals buyers by maintaining the same rigid standards of excellence for PNG precious metals dealers—and more.

PNG is a nonprofit organization comprised of the world's top rare coin, paper money and precious metals experts and 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, more importantly, helping consumers 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. 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 Metals Dealer is a professional you can always trust—an advocate who has your best interest as their top priority!
