About Us

We have been in the precious metals business for 40 years. Jim Pavlakos started in 1974, and his son Andrew has joined forces at the mint to continue the growth and future of the Golden State Mint. It is well known that Golden State Mint gets the job done, and hasn't ever failed to meet any of its' commitments to customers. We have the shortest lead times in the industry, and always meet or beat our guaranteed delivery times.

We have facilities in Southern California and Central Florida, and are continuously expanding to meet the needs of our customers. Using state-of-the-art processes we're continually adding and upgrading equipment on our production line to provide the best quality and delivery of product possible.

We specialize in the minting of silver, gold copper and have the ability to produce numerous sizes and endless designs. Using the very best method of producing the planchets (blanks), affords us the ability to have very little waste to recycle, giving the best pricing possible. Having multiple facilities allows us to specialize in exacting the needs of our customers.
