An overall great purchase! The quality and condition which I received my coins was beyond my expectations. They are truly a beautiful masterpiece and I love them.
First time user and buyer
This was my very first purchase in precious metals, and I must say the experience was great. Delivery was quick and timely. The packaging was excellent and I love the site. Thanks again Providence and I'm look forward to making more purchases with you all!.
You guys are awesome, no other way to put it!! Great inventory, great prices and SUPER fast delivery. Another huge plus is you allow alternate shipping address vs billed to address which many other sites don't allow. There is no way I want my prescious metal dropped off at my front door or nobody is home to sign for delivery and then you have to go to the post office
Job well done!!
My silver rounds
I've been buying silver from Provident for several years and they have never disappointed me. My orders are always shipped quickly and packed extremely well. I've compared prices to other vendors and they are always very competitive. They have a very wide selection and everything I receive is always top notch condition. I couldn't be happier than I am with Provident !!
Great selection of coins and bars and I like the notification feature to alert you when a product is available. Purchasing is smooth and the shipping is fast. Will definitely make this site my first choice to visit for new coins
Professional and Quality with Service
Provident Metals has always provided me with professional service, high quality purchases and extremely fast shipping. Their Customer Service people are there to assist their customers, not just answer a phone or email. Ever since my first purchase a few years ago, they have never let me down, the orders were exactly what I ordered and the speed of shipment was above most companies. The fact that the CEO even puts a card with a contact number in your shipment, is reassuring in these times. Provident Metals is there to serve their clients and customers. And provide quality, service and shipping. We buy from Provident Metals because the company is great and the CEO even wants each order to be perfect. There is nothing better.
Ordered four coins and a bezel. Order received quickly. Coins packed well. My third purchase from provident. There the best in the business. Thank you.
First time buyer and love it
Bought a couple of half price deals and and some air-tite capsules for the high relief Egyptian series rounds, which I purchased from JMB. Found that Provident was the mint and decided to but direct. Still waiting on Anubis to become available. Will definitely be back.
As ALWAYS Provident Metals made ordering easy. User friendly made finding what I want a breeze. Shipping was fast which is huge for my business. The items are always packaged to protect items from damage. The items always show up on mint perfect condition. The magnet they send as an extra gift is cool. (The wife hates them all over the fridge). I will continue to buy all my metal from Provident.
Great place to purchase bullion. Price obviously great and shipping time short. Made many a happy smile while trying to share collecting and saving for future.
Have ordered three times from provident so far. Each time everything went off without a hitch. Crazy fast shipping and everything has been perfect. Lifetime customer now for sure.
The absolute best place to get your precious metals.
Provident Metals is where I will be shopping from now on.
2 things I care about and 1 is how fast I get my delivery and the other is the price. Both great and I will not ever hesitate to order from them.
Great first time experience
This was my first time purchasing silver rounds on line and everything went smoothly and the coins I received were great, I will definitively be making purchases from Provident Metals again
Well above average
With that being said, the prices are better here than other sites (APmex for example), the shipping was quick enough considering it was free, and the overall experience was good.
I will be ordering more from Provident.
Great Silver at Great Prices
I'm a stacker but I also buy silver rounds that go up in value . Like the Panda , Kookaburra , Lunar Series and all the others . I have a $100.00 plus budget pre month so I try to make the best buys at the best prices that I can . When ever there is a new release on one of the series coins , I know that Provident Metals will be running a special on them . Thank you , that does help ! I've been buying from them since 2009 and they have been good to me . My stack does go down at times ( when I need money ) but I know where to go to build it back up . Thanks again , Joe
Great prices on the selection that they have available. I have compared their prices to that of others and they are generally the lowest. I only wish they had a greater selection of coins. Other than that great service and most importantly great prices.
These are great
I was actually looking for a new silver dealer. My last one went bankrupt, guess silver bullets didn't do so good. Anyways, did not want to have to sell my entire farm in order to buy SOME silver. Found this site. The Four Horsemen series were just kind of ... bad ass. So I bought some. Didn't have to buy a truck load to make an order. I had my order faster than I expected. I like it. I will buy more silver from here, on my terms, when I can. I love it.
Worthy of a review
I normally do not take the time to write reviews on things ( just not my thing) and I again passed over the email to review Provident like I do with all the other companies I deal with. However after several orders from provident in the last month I felt they were worthy of one, A good one! Every order I have placed with Provident Metals has been issue free! I receive exactly what I order in the condition I expect it to be in. Items are packaged well and I have always received a shipping notification of my orders quickly (next day when using CC) I am a new customer to Provident metals but based on what I've experienced so far, I see myself doing a lot more business with Provident in the future.
Love the zombucks coins. I was able to easily order the ones I couldn't find locally.only a few more to go.
Good place to buy silver
This is one of three places I purchase my silver rounds. I have never had a problem with them and I will continue to buy from them.
Coins were delivered as described and within the time frame promised. I have purchased coins from provident for several years and I've never had a problem. some coins have even been graded at pr/ms70 by third party grading companies.
Great value fast shipping thank you,will shop here again love the selection thanks!
Got my original larger order sometime ago. Wanted the Prospector for awhile, finally ordered it for its looks and detail. Very pleased with it and the overall service and ease of ordering. Good job, folks! Have checked a bunch of other sources and keep coming back to PM. See you soon.
Excellent all around - very competitive
Provident is one of my top dealers.
Of note, they do provide a military discount for active duty and retired military upon request.
Excellent selection, quality products. Customer service is prompt, professional and very courteous. They are very clear on pricing and the rates depending on the purchase method.
I have made more orders from Provident Metals than any other dealer as a result.
Cannot recommend highly enough.
I also like JMBullion, SD Bullion and GoldSilver.com and have purchased from them all. Scottsdale Mint is very nice but more limited in selection to their more unique products.
Long wait... not a problem
Order from them quite frequently. I send a check snail mail. Im already locked in at my price so im not in a rush to recieve my items. I hear that the reason for slow shipping is not enough employees to do the work. If too little employees helps keep their cost of the metals low... Ive got no problem waiting. Its insured, what do i care. Good Job Provident you will keep getting my business.
i have been buying from provident for over 4 yrs and have gotten good products. I usually pay with a debit card and when i pay by check usually takes 3 weeks total, so the people who complain about slow shipping well it states in their disclosure that they have to wait till the ck clears plus theres a lot of dishonest people out there….only had a snafu in one order and they quickly corrected it and sent me the remaining products…plus its a business in texas gotta love that.
I ordered on December 30th. Sent a check and payment was received on January 3rd. Check cleared my bank January .6th. But called to complain what's the hold up. They said I have to wait 5 business cause they hold the check to make sure it cleared. I advised the representative that the check already cleared the bank but refused to check and take my word for it. On January 9th got a notification they will package it. Called again a rep on the 10th in morning and the rep said it could take 3 to 5 more days to package my items. I was not happy. I called later that day on the 10th at the end of the day and told them I was not happy with this situation. This make rep was very nice and said he would put a rush out on sending my order out but nothing can be fine until the 11th of January but advised me he would keep track of my order and monitor it. The situation has became very clear to me that Provident Metels has some serious lack man power issues in their shipping department and is having trouble keeping up shipping out their orders in a timely manner. I saved $30 writing a check out plus had to spend an extra $2.90 for a signature confirmation plus free shipping. I am still very upset with the delays. Even if they manage to ship out my stuff it will take and extra 3 or 4 mores days before I receive my items. Granted we had a New Years holiday but 16 days delayed shipping is totally unacceptable. Yes it's true that Provident Metals offers the best prices out there but their shipping is slow as molasses. I assume that the rumors are true and they have approximately 15 employees as reported by other services compared to Apmex that has 100'employees. I am started to regret not using a visa debit card for this transaction. It seems like all the precious metal companies are taking advantage against customers using their credit card and it seems more like a penalty fee for having an instant confirmed payment done. I get the strong impression that they want to hold your checks longer for interest reasons. Im jump not a happy customer right now. I might take a chance and give them one more chance but this time using my credit card. I'm still waiting for my merchandise.
Everything As Expected
I have purchased bullion from three internet dealers over the past four years. Provident has been what I expected. Good price, several days to process payment even with an echeck and up to 5-6 days shipping time. The shipping time is of course not their fault. So all in all my experiences with Provident is what I have come to expect - fair prices and 10 - 12 days for delivery to my door. I buy new product so the product is always well packaged and unblemished.
I placed a simple order and it was fulfilled completely & swiftly.
Several transactions, very satisfied. Better prices and shipping times than the others I've tried.
Enjoy working with Provident. To get the cash discount you must mail a check same day so this makes the process take anywhere from 1-4 weeks. However, I am not in a hurry so I don't mind. It's fun for the anticipation to build for when it comes in the mail.
I would recommend buying the lowest price 1 oz silver rounds that are new. I don't enjoy the sunshine mint rounds that have the security feature as it looks strange to those who are not familiar with it. I used to buy the provident 1 oz coin variety pack but did not want to end up with the Sunshine Mint ones.
I have placed orders with every big site out there, and they all have their good and bad qualities. I have become loyal to provident however because I have found that they have the best prices on average, and they offer cool private mint silver. Depending on the payment methods I've chosen, my orders have shipped quickly, and when I've had a problem they've solved it to my satisfaction which is something I can't say all the dealers I've dealt with.
Shipping orders coming from Texas take forever- not provident fault they ship when they're supposed to but some of my orders have been stuck in Dallas for days never moving or updated very frustrating- prices are the best and products I've received have been Exceptional so far - buy here
Great variety, great prices, and always delivers as promised
Provident has always been a reliable dealer for me; all my orders are always fulfilled, and their customer support has been pretty satisfactory. The variety of products always amaze me. While shipping time could be better, its nothing much to be bothered about, makes receiving the package all the more sweeter :)
Great experience with Provident
Provident is always great and I always feel like I can trust those guys to fulfill my orders. I have purchased from them several times and they have great prices, many different payment options, great service and unique items.
Provident are my go to sellers of silver. Their prices, shipping times and overall buying experiences are some of the best for online vendors. Not to mention they seem to regularly update their stock, they have a number of payment options, everything is clear to understand when purchasing, and they have a great stock of items. The only issue is that customer support takes a long time through email to respond, and when they do, it's someone from India or wherever. If you ever have any issues with Provident, I'd recommend calling them to make sure they process your issue quickly.
Currently My Favorite
I think they have the best specials and often the best prices. Free shipping is great. The turn around time was 14 days for a check payment.
Everything as expected.
I bought my coins as a surprise to my wife although the shipping took a little longer than the 2 day priority I paid for but all in all I definitely plan on ordering more coins and other metals from this company. I also like that they're located in Texas.
Great Product at good value
I've placed several orders with Provident Metals this year 2017, and always got exactly what I ordered quickly, product as described consistently which is paramount, and always at good price value for the market at the time. How shall I say .... Provident is "spot on" ? LoL. Very enjoyable experience with this supplier.
It was my first order with Provident. Very prompt service/delivery. Coins delivered in individual plastic protective sleeves. Beautiful Canadian Maple Leaf coins (BU means BU at Provident). Will definitely order again.
Purchased 2017 silver eagles to give as gifts to grand kids
Price and service was very good
Thought shipping was a bit high
Safe, easy, good value
Good price, quick shipping, safe, customer support didn't use so I gave it a 3, 4.5 on other reviews must leave room for improvement. Will use them in the future!
Uncirculated brilliant coins
Treasury uncirculated condition . Promt shipping with insurance included . My second purchase and will buy again . They are Perfectionicts . .
Can it really be so Easy??
Provident made making a small investment very easy for a novice like myself.
With there up to date spot pricing and special deals it was almost too easy.The couple of questions I had were answered quickly and in an easy to understand manner.
I have already recommended Provident to a couple of friends who are looking into Metals like I am. Amazing to me that when you open an account you can lock in your price while you mail in a money order and they will wait on it to get there in the snail mail!!
Is Provident Metals A Top 3 Silver Buying Website?
Yes it is! Very well designed website with large inventory at great prices. The inventory, shipping time frame and price is among the top 3 precious metals buying Internet websites in my experience. There's a little room for improvement in order to become number 1, great experience overall. I definitely check them out before I purchase. Also love their private mint coins and bars, they have the best private mint designs.
Provident Metals is one of my top 2 sites for purchasing bullion. Their products are of quality and I purchase metals from them with confidence that their products are pure and genuine. I have yet to encounter a problem with their merchandise, services, or delivery of products.
I would rate Provident a 9 out of 10 silver eagles were very nice, price was fair, packaging and tube very good, delivery was fast, the only downside was I didn't care for the package being left in my mail box.
Milk spots and rim nick
one coin had milk spots and the bar had a nick out of the side. I think think for the premium on the items, the items should have been choice specimens. These companies need to refuse milk spotted coins. I should have probably called customer service, but most likely I will order from another company in the future.
Lightning fast service
Provident Metals is hands down the best firm to deal with when buying silver bullion. The pricing is fair, the delivery lightning fast, and I feel that my purchases are safe from the moment my order leaves their facility to when it gets to my door. I love stacking silver, and I love Provident Metals!
easy to do business with
I had a small problem a few years ago with Provident. I tried them again a few times since then and they have been problem free. I am ordering again tonight an expect the same great service I received the last time.
