  • *During long holiday breaks, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's, please note that we do "hold" packages from shipping on certain days for security reasons (packages lingering in sort facilities around holidays pose higher security risks). We believe this grace period is in the customer's best interest, and could potentially impact the 3-day shipping window slightly.

  • State Bullion Depository is Golden Opportunity

    VICTORIA ADVOCATE - July 30, 2016

    The law establishing the Texas Bullion Depository is not about need. It is about value, and the value to the state is realized through revenue, opportunity, and diversification.

    First, the depository will cost taxpayers nothing. Zero. The fact that no fiscal note was attached to the bill was the primary reason the bill passed almost unanimously in the House (140-1) and Senate (29-2).

    Furthermore, the depository will generate revenue for the state from operations. Since the facility will be funded privately, an additional $20-plus million will be invested into the Texas market, along with at least 50 new jobs.

  • Shiner Company Vies for Texas Bullion Depository Contract

    VICTORIA ADVOCATE - July 17, 2016

    The model that sits on the table in Texas Precious Metals' privately owned depository is small.

    But the idea captured by the miniature walls is a Texas-sized proposal in response to a uniquely Texas bill.

    The model is the Shiner business' proposal for a more than 46,000-square-foot incarnation of the Texas Bullion Depository. The depository is a product of House Bill 483, which introduced a public-private partnership for the only state-owned depository for precious metals such as silver and gold.

  • Yellen Tries to Extend the Game One More Round (Humor)

    In advance of Janet Yellen’s “hike or no hike" FED announcement, the TPM marketing team had some fun conceptualizing the game she is playing.

  • Could Texans soon be playing the gold card?

    In 2015, Texas Governor Greg Abbott in 2015 signed into law an act establishing a state bullion depository at no cost to taxpayers. He intends to enter into a public-private partnership with a qualified company to provide a secure, physical depository and an agency of innovation.

    A non-banking financial facility will provide Texans with secure resources for a wide range of gold-backed financial services privately sponsored and publicly supervised by the state of Texas.

    Through our support of this bill and our ongoing participation with the state comptroller's office, we recently presented our vision at the Texas Republican convention. As you can see from the headlines below, our vision for the Texas Bullion Depository caught the eye of more than just Republican delegates and lawmakers.
