  • The 2018 Texas Silver Round is here!

    We're excited to unveil the new 2018 Texas Silver Round! The stunning 2018 Texas Silver Round features iconography as diverse and dynamic as the Lone Star State itself. Three hallmarks of the state of Texas dominate the reverse of the round: the cowboy, the bluebonnet flower, and the Texas State Capitol. The rambunctious cowboy and the peaceful bluebonnets stand on opposite sides of the foreground with the Capitol building rising majestically between them. The wildly bucking bronco and cowboy duo is a depiction of the Texas Cowboy Monument, sculpted by Constance Whitney Warren and presented to the state of Texas — considered by Warren to be the “native home of the cowboy.” The life-size statue was a tribute to the “rough and romantic riders of the range” and was erected on the Capitol grounds in 1925. The cowboy is juxtaposed with the pair of bluebonnets to the right of the Capitol. The state flowers, known to paint entire fields blue in the spring, protrude peacefully from the edge of the round, with lush leaves and delicate stalks bending gently toward the Capitol building.

  • Dear TPM Customers:

    Due to the continued adverse weather conditions affecting our area, we will be closing our offices on Monday, August 28th. At the present time, we anticipate reopening on Tuesday, August 29th if weather conditions improve as anticipated.

    We want to thank those of you who have written offering your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We feel very fortunate that we may have escaped the worst of it, but flooding and power loss in our area is significant. Thankfully, our employees are all well. Areas directly along the coast have been ravaged, and Houston continues to receive a deluge of rain, as I am sure you have seen reported on the news. Please keep those families in your prayers.

    Our ordinary course of operations will be affected for at least the coming week. We ceased all metal shipments on Thursday, and we do not expect to resume shipping until Wednesday at the earliest. Many of the roads are no longer navigable for UPS. As you know, we take great pride in shipping quickly, but customer shipments will be delayed during this week. We will ship out all orders as soon as it is safe to do so.

    There will be no customer support by phone until Tuesday the earliest, and incoming payment confirmations will be delayed by at least one day. We will continue to respond to inquiries via email at in the interim, and we will work to answer those inquiries as expeditiously as possible.

    Normal online trading will remain available 24/7.

    We apologize for any inconvenience during this time and we thank you again for your prayers and well wishes.

  • Texas Lawmaker: It’s Time to Protect Gold Depository, Reduce Precious-Metal Taxes

    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.

    Here is coverage from the Forth Worth Star-Telegram:
