Customer Testimonials

I've been buying physical metals from Golden State Mint for years and have never had a problem. I would highly recommend using them. Jim has always been trustworthy and honest in his dealings. I couldn't be happier with them.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Golden State Mint on several occasions. It has been a most pleasurable experience each and every time. Andrew has always been very helpful, and I will continue to give them my business.

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 will order again and recommend them to everyone!

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 buy from GSM are always perfect and delivered as promised ... Thanks Jim !!!
