JM Bullion was launched in late 2011 by two entrepreneurs, Michael, and Jonathan, who truly have a passion for the precious metals market. While the (retail) precious metal market is far from an untapped niche, they noticed that there were needs that other metal retailers didn’t. Those needs like a user-friendly website, dedicated support and investor-friendly features like Automatic Investment Program.
As the title says, most shoppers couldn’t be happier with JM Bullion. Their prices are the lowest anywhere 99% of the time, and weekly sales present the opportunity to buy bullion at a slight premium over spot.
After establishing a relationship with a few orders, the e-check option (EFT withdrawal) makes ordering even easier. Add in the always free shipping, and it can’t be beaten. Free shipping, and delivery in about a week.
Customer service is quick to reply with answers to any question. A few shoppers noted, they never had a bad experience and will continue to deal exclusively with JM Bullion.

I have placed 10 orders with JM Bullion in the 12 months, ranging from a few hundred to thousands of $. The prices have been competitive, the shipping has been reasonably fast and the one time I had an issue (had to go to the post office and pay $1.50 to get my shipment due to insufficient postage) I contacted JM Bullion and was offered a $5 off coupon for my next order which was satisfactory.John M.
