Great Prices & Slowwwwwwww Shipping
MCM has some of the best prices online, but their shipping time frame is slow, even thou I live in the same state they are in Florida. Since I live in Florida, I also get charged taxes, so be aware of that. It sky rockets the price of your purchase if you are a Florida resident.
Also I am not happy with what they are charging for the new silver Krugerrand coin prices! I am not the only one either, check online and YouTube and you will find many many people complaining about it. That's the main reason why I gave a 3.5 star review for price.
Fast, Reliable & Competitive
I first found MCM on eBay about 3 years ago and that is where I bought my first coin from them. I received my coin in about 4 days (they are in Florida, I'm in California). It was exactly what they advertised and I had no problem from A-Z.
MCM has a very large range of products, both raw uncertified coins to MS/PR/PF graded coins. Their premiums are a bit high, my opinion, but for that you know you're getting a genuine and legitimate precious metal coin.
I've also bought from APMEX, and if forced to choose, I would buy from MCM every time. I think APMEX has extremely high premiums and the only time I had to deal with their customer service, it was not a good experience. When I had to call MCM about an order, their customer service was fantastic. The rep was very nice and did everything I could have hoped for. MCM has amazing customer service.
You won't be disappointed making a precious metal purchase from MCM.
Great first time experience
I have only dealt with MCM coins one time, and very recently. I wanted to order a recent-mintage Libertad in order to add to my world coin collection. In my particular local area, few coin shops had them, and those that did had them for unreasonable prices. After scouring the internet and finding similarly outrageous prices- or just as bad, a sound price but exorbitant ‘handling’ and shipping fees (which seem to be common with the more popular bullion sites)- I reluctantly turned to eBay.
I generally don’t like to use eBay – I don’t like bidding as a rule and most of the time the ‘Buy-it-now” prices are jacked up. But MCM seemed like it had a very reasonable price relative to spot and the popularity of the Libertad. Best of all, shipping was free.
I HATE to pay for shipping. That makes or breaks a sale for me in all honesty.
So I pay for the coin via PayPal and I get an auto-confirmation. Now, this is the only point in the whole experience that *could* be improved – I got very little initial communication from the buyer. I got said communication within a reasonable amount of time comparative to the purchase date so it’s not a deterrent for me personally, but very little interaction overall. Shipping was slow but I knew that up front (and I’m fine with slower shipping if I don’t have to pay for it!) The package was securely wrapped and the coin itself was encased in an almost impenetrable sarcophagus of thick cardboard.
The coin itself was absolutely gorgeous! To be fair it was a 2014 and I would EXPECT it to be so, but it was just about a perfect non-proof specimen as one can get. I am very pleased with my purchase and I am sure to frequent MCM in the future.
