One of the advantages of using Golden Eagle Coins is the large selection of bullion available. We were pleased to see they offered copper, which is not one of the more popular metals found through bullion exchange companies. In addition, several quantities of each metal are available so you can buy more than just one item.

Coin collectors will love the selection of numismatic products available such as pre-1933 coins, uncirculated mint sets, commemoratives and even coin supplies. This precious metals service has books and albums, coin bezels and coin boxes available for protecting your coin collection. In addition, extensive collections of foreign coins are available for purchase. Not only do they offer individual world coins, but you can also purchase large coin collections mixed with several different coins from all over the world.

There is no minimum order requirement for buying or selling precious metals. They do accept bank wires, but the purchase must be more than $2,500. All shipments are insured, which can help calm your fears when you have an expensive investment being shipped around the country. We were disappointed they did not offer shipping outside the U.S.

According to their privacy policy, Golden Eagle Coins has taken precautionary measures to ensure your information is secure. They only ask for information necessary for placing the order, such as name, email address, phone number, street address, credit card number, expiration date and security code. They do not sell, trade or publish your information to any third party.

One of the biggest drawbacks we found to Golden Eagle Coins was their customer service. They offer phone and email support, but there is no live chat. Their customer service team is only available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. EST. Although, during that time frame, they responded quickly to any inquiry we had.

This precious metals website did offer an adequate FAQs section that we found useful. The section covered questions from purchasing, selling and return topics. We wished there were more questions regarding general information, bullion and precious metal investing.
