Dear TexMetals customers,
In a continual effort to lower costs for our customers, we are excited to announce that we are lowering our threshold for free shipping from $6000 to $5000 effective January, 27th. Among the many reasons for the change is the introduction of the new Texas Silver Round mini-monster box which, barring a large drop in silver prices, will consequently ship for free like other monster boxes.
NOTICE: The US markets and most commercial banks will be closed on Monday, January 20th for the Martin Luther King holiday. Our offices will also be closed. Clients may continue to place orders online even though the markets will not be trading. We will reopen Tuesday, January 21st.
Just a quick update concerning Silver Eagles inventory. We will receive our final shipment of Silver Eagles for 2013 on Friday, December 6th. There will be 30,000 coins in the shipment. Once these coins are sold, we will be completely out of stock on Silver Eagles until the new 2014 coins release on January 14th, 2014.
GoldStar Trust Company, a leading IRA custodian, and DDSC (Delaware Depository) are the two latest institutions to add the .9999 fine Texas Silver Round to the their respective catalogs of approved silver. By definition, the Texas Silver Round qualifies as an IRA-eligible product because it meets the fineness requirements of the US government and is minted at an ISO-9001 facility. However, every institution has the right to accept or reject IRA-eligible products.
The holidays are here again, and we want to communicate a few important scheduling details, including our shipping policies throughout the holidays. During long holiday breaks, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's, we "hold" packages from shipping on certain days for security reasons. Packages lingering in sort facilities around the holidays pose higher security risks. We believe this grace period is in the customer's best interest, and could potentially impact our internal 3-day shipping window slightly:
For the first time since 2008, the US Mint will release Platinum Eagles to the public. We are receiving guidance that these coins will become available to the retail sector in February. We will post further information in this space as it becomes available.
