“The possession of gold has ruined fewer men than the lack of it.” – Thomas Bailey Aldrich


USAGOLD ranks among the most reputable gold companies in the United States. Founded in the 1970s and still family-owned, it is one of the oldest and most respected names in the gold industry. The firm’s unblemished, zero-complaints record and solid reviews with the Better Business Bureau testify to the exceptional customer service and professional excellence which sets it apart from the competition.

From a verified Better Business Bureau Review

“When I first became interested in purchasing gold, I merely followed the advertising recommendation of a conservative national personality. This experience was not favorable, as the recommended firm seemed to be just another high pressure marketing boiler room, only interested in making a sale at the highest possible commission. Of course I was disenchanted, and thus lumped (unfairly) all gold brokers into the same category. A few years later, my interest in purchasing gold overcame my earlier experience and I began seeking a trustworthy firm. As I researched various options, USAGOLD caught my attention. . . Over the next few months, I engaged in several significant transactions, and all aspects of those transactions could not have been better. . . I intend to be a lifelong customer . . If you are looking for personal attention from a trustworthy firm that has decades of impeccable history along with a focused depth of expertise, you have found it in USAGOLD.”

From a verified Better Business Bureau Review

“In June, 2009, I decided to make gold ownership an essential part of my investment portfolio. Based on the recommendation of financial professionals, and because I liked that they had been in business for so long, I contacted USAGOLD. After a thorough review of my financial goals and budget constraints, they provided me with a comprehensive set of suggestions as to which gold coins, and what quantities, I should consider. That advice perfectly addressed my investment needs and I have been a customer ever since. Over my years with USAGOLD, I have completed several transactions, both buying and selling gold. Each one was handled with the highest integrity, and the advice I received was always reliable, based on their extensive awareness of current and projected market conditions for gold. I recommend them without reservation. Do not make a decision regarding gold ownership without contacting them.”

From a verified Better Business Bureau Review

“My business relationship with USAGOLD began in 2015 after being highly recommended to me by my Financial Advisor. Being a widow, I felt I needed diversification in my portfolio. After a few question and answer interviews with Jonathan via phone conversations, I was completely confident in his professional judgement and knowledge.

A brief company history
From humble beginnings to nationally recognized precious metals firm and website

In 1973 when President Richard Nixon severed the link between the dollar and gold and abolished the Bretton Woods system, he ushered in the new era of fiat money and simultaneously elevated the importance of gold in personal portfolios as a currency hedge. It was in the months following this momentous shift in economic policy that our company was founded.

What started from humble beginnings as a local Denver over-the-counter precious metals outlet (that also dealt in fine art) quickly transitioned into a client-oriented investment firm under the name Centennial Precious Metals. Aided by local yellow page listings throughout the West and Midwest from the mid-1980s, the firm grew rapidly into a regional hub for investors looking to add gold and silver to their holdings.

The firm’s monthly newsletter, News & Views – Forecasts, Commentary & Analysis on the Economy and Precious Metals – enjoyed wide physical distribution and started to gain national attention for its coverage of the gold market at a time when the precious metals were neglected in the mainstream media. It remains in print (albeit digital print) to this day and eventually became the model philosophically for the firm’s current website.

In 1996, the firm’s founder Michael J. Kosares published the first of three editions of The ABC’s of Gold Investing – How To Protect and Build Your Wealth with Gold, a book that ultimately was republished in multiple languages, educated thousands on the merits and mechanics of precious metals ownership, and correctly predicted the early stages of gold’s secular bull market. While The ABC’s of Gold Investing certainly enhanced Centennial’s national and international standing (and brought in a whole new wave of clientele), it was not until 1997 that the landscape for our company began to change in earnest. That year, Centennial Precious Metals became one of the first precious metals brokerages on the internet, a foresight that facilitated the ownership of the highly coveted URL: USAGOLD.com. In the years that followed, Centennial officially rebranded as USAGOLD and grew to national and international prominence.

In 2002, Michael’s son, Jonathan Kosares, joined the firm after graduating cum laude from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in finance, officially establishing USAGOLD as a multi-generational family-owned and operated business. Over the past 20 years, USAGOLD has continued to expand and innovate without losing sight of its enduring goal – to stand apart in the industry in terms of superior client service, competitive pricing, delivery and storage logistics, and product availability, all the while maintaining an unblemished customer service record.

Now nearing its 50th year in the gold business, USAGOLD remains in the vanguard of the industry, offering an elite website visited by tens of thousands daily, complete with daily analysis and commentary, live pricing and charts, historical pricing, a vast library of informative, educational articles, and a password-protected online ordering system, complete with live-pricing and a diverse product offering. We invite you to become a client of USAGOLD and join with the thousands of investors before you who have chosen us as their precious metals firm.
