I highly recommend Jim Pavakos and his company Golden State Mint as the best place to purchase Gold and Silver. Jim works with each client personally as he educates through many years of experience with gold and silver. Jim is extremely honest and always does what he says he will do.
When I started looking for a Mint to work with 10 years ago, I called nearly every private Mint in the USA. I found Jim & Andrew at the Golden State Mint to be the most trustworthy, professional, and pleasant to deal with.

This is the second order I've received from Golden State Mint. The photos of their products do not do the actual product justice. All rounds, copper, silver, and gold, are meticulously hand crafted, and are works of art. Andrew is always a professional, and is always a pleasure to do business with. Golden State's business model is simply the best,
and I will only do business with them. Feel confident with any and all purchases you make.

The one ounce silver Buffalo and Morgan rounds my wife and I purchased are magnificent. They are of artisan quality, and the price was very competitive.
We do not hesitate to recommend Golden State Mint. Their quality and prices are exceptional, and their service is outstanding.

We had never ordered precious metals before. We considered ordering from Goldline but didn't really feel comfortable with it. I did some online research and found Golden State Mint. Their products were beautiful and their prices were spectacular.
Andrew was very kind & patient with all of my questions. His father, Jim handled the details of our second order and he was just as patient & understanding as Andrew.
Such a pleasure to do business with. We...

When I needed basic information as a new investor, Jim patiently helped me through my "basic" questions. When I had questions about security and reliability, Jim explained policies/procedures in a fashion that engendered confidence. His personal principles shine through, in the way he describes his Company and his Family. I trust Jim and look forward to doing business with him into the future. Oh, did I mention ... the freshly minted Silver rounds I...

I could not be any happier with the service, pricing and attention to detail I have gotten from Jim and Andrew Pavlakos. They are top notch professionals, running a world class operation. Thank you so much for everything!

Jim and Andrew @ Golden State Mint have taken purchasing precious metals to a new standard of professional, courteous customer service and offer a brilliant, flawless product.

"I just wanted to tell you that we received the two parcels of silver. My son called me at work to describe the packaging. When I came home, he greeted me with two specimens of the Indian/Buffalo round (one was from another mint). He only showed me the Obverse of each and, without knowing which was which, I chose the Golden State Mint round without hesitation - the mint quality was obviously far superior.
Most respectfully, my son and I thank you...

"I have been doing business with Golden State Mint and they are one of our preferred dealers for precious metals.
This week we want to feature their fractional ounce silver products. However, they can provide almost any precious metals product. Being a mint they can also turn bullion bars into rounds if you so desire. I have done so in the past, and am presently working on a Silver Investor round. Dealing directly with the Mint enables you to...

"I received the remainder of the silver yesterday without event. Looking over the whole process I am amazed at both the quality of the product and the quality and speed of the service! Obviously, silver will not stay fresh and bright forever, but becomes toned with exposure to the environment. But those tarnished bars (at least I imagine them being heavily toned, if they are like the ones I have seen) from the Scotia Mocatta depository in Jamaica, NY...

"Upon recommendation by my financial advisor, I contacted Golden State Mint about converting my Comex silver bars. Although I was initially a bit apprehensive about dealing with a mint, I found it a tremendous relief to work with someone who has such integrity. Since I was someone unfamiliar with many aspects of the minting process and had only a few bars, I was pleasantly surprised at the importance Jim placed on my order and the timeliness in which he...
"Time moves so fast and today after speaking with you I began to think back to '09 realizing it was one of my most fortunate years. It was during the latter part of that year I learned about you and Golden State Mint. I mentioned to you early on that it was a conversation I had with David Morgan where he spoke so highly of your work that prompted me to call you. Since David is someone whose credentials and integrity are of the highest, I pay attention...

"I spoke with Andrew Pavlakos about purchasing silver bullion coins last month. His attention to detail and follow through on my purchase of my silver, will make this the company I will deal with in my future purchases.
– Morris M.
"To Whom it May Concern,
I hereby highly endorse Jim Pavlakos' Golden State Mint as one of my top suppliers. His turn around times have been fast, his product has been excellent, and his skills as a private mint to mint various different designs have exceeded our expectations.
Fast: Jim has, on occasion, been able to sell us the commonly manufactured silver Buffaloes in as little as 2 days. Jim has been able to start an entire print run of a new...

"I just want to thank you for my recent order. I especially like the Morgan & Standing Liberty rounds. Being a retired businessman myself, I truly appreciate the honesty, quality, courtesy & promptness that your firm has shown me. Very rarely in today’s world do you see all of these virtues in a transaction. Especially appreciated is the price & quality of your products.
Keep up the good work, America needs more businesses like yours."
– Don H
"We received our silver rounds the other day and were very impressed with the product and service. We have been purchasing silver for several years now. We have found your service and pricing to be the best in the industry. We will recommend you to our friends. Thank you for taking such good care of us."
– Frank and C. W. of Ohio
"Received 500 oz of Buffalo and 500 oz of Indians. Love them.
The Morgans arrived today and you have exceeded my expectations. The Morgans are fully proof and the dies must have been polished to provide the blazing black and white contrast. They look great even in low light. I love them best of all. Thanks!"
– George Z. of SC
"Who is Jim Pavlakos and why am I recommending him? Jim manufactures all our custom coin designs. Jim came through for me months ago, when all the other mints were backlogged and could not deliver on time. Jim has always delivered on time, or faster than I expected. One time, I ordered silver rounds from him, and he had them in the mail later that same day! From a Mint!"
– Jason Hommel
"I came to Golden State Mint after paying ridiculous premiums elsewhere for silver rounds. GSM actually stamps silver rounds in-house with their own high-speed equipment to provide nearly the lowest price to the public anywhere for brand new product. Originally a fan of their 1 oz. silver Buffalo Round, I now favor their Incuse Indian (tribute) 1 oz. silver round which has quite a remarkable imprint striking (as opposed to having a raised image) with...

"Hi Jim & Andrew,
I received my 1 oz. silver rounds this morning. I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the quality of these silver rounds. These are beautiful rounds. You should be very proud of the quality and workmanship that goes into minting these silver rounds.
I still can't get over how fast your service is. From receipt of my bank wire, these rounds were sent out the same day, and received 2 days later. Your company is...
– George Wilmot
"I wanted to thank Golden State Mint for a perfect first time buyers experience. Speaking with Jim was great and he was very helpful and ensured a quick delivery. My rounds came as expected, beautiful and on time in only a few days.
This was as simple and stress free as it gets and I will for sure be looking to conduct future business with you. Thanks again for running a great product and company."
