Good Transaction

Reviewed by Sean | October 29, 2012

I ordered on 10/22, paid via bank wire the same day. Got confirmation of wire receipt from GC the following day, with an estimated ship date of 10/31. Today is 10/29 and I just got notice that my order has shipped. I assume it will get here at the end of the week, and I assume it will contain what it is supposed to contain.

Being an order of more than $4000, I was really nervous about sending a bank wire - but everything appears to have gone well. I'll post again if something goes wrong when I get the package.

This was my second order - last time it was much smaller and I paid via CC. I will order from GC again and again - unless something goes wrong.

Terrible experience.

Reviewed by Patrick | August 16, 2012

I wish I had read the reviews here first. They have a nice website and all appears good but the coins are pretty much just cull (worn, scratches and cleaned) okay I was buying bullion, but at least give me a decent looking bullion coin, I complained and got no where, they are worn that bad I suspect they don’t weigh a full ounce either. I had to file with my credit card company to get a refund although with shipping I am $27.48 short and overall had a very bad experience, This has to be the worst gold and silver bullion seller in the United States. A small outfit with a fancy website.

Smooth Transaction

Reviewed by Sean Alaska | June 05, 2012

I ordered 21 silver eagles, a copper coin, a NZ mint turtle coin and two empty monster boxes. I got exactly what I ordered, within a reasonable period of time. Much cheaper than APMEX (which refused to even ship empty monster boxes to Alaska for any price). They took 7 days to ship, but I knew that up front (although I don't see why it should take so long). They shipped it all via USPS priority mail for $30. The entire order was about 10% less than APMEX, so can't argue much on price. I definitely plan to order from these guys again. No complaints.

This was my first order with Gainesville coins and it went smoothly. The order was placed online last week. I called to confirm the order and asked when the coins would ship. I was told May 14. They actually shipped the next day and I received them 5 days later by UPS. Great experience all around.

We have ordered several times from Gainsville coins and never disappointed. After reading the trash of the negative reviews and the recurring themes (one recent post stated convincingly they had no showroom!!) we decided to stop by while on recent vacation in Florida. Not only do they have a showroom, but it is extremely nice and the staff are all VERY knowledgeable and professional. We really appreciated the good advice and courteous handling of our visit. Keep up the good work!!!

Great coins and service!

Reviewed by silver | March 24, 2012

I ordered some 2012 silver panda coins and not only was gainesville the cheapest, I got them on the day that they were expected to ship! Don't be fooled by the negative reviews on here. So what if their customer service isn't the best? I called them asking if they were going to have any more in stock and somebody was talking to me in a couple minutes. Is it worth spending more $ to be able to get on the phone with someone right away? Not for me! I requested priority mail shipping and they fulfilled my request... Unlike provident metals who denied my request. Their shipping may be a little on the high side but at least their prices are very low.

Fool Me Once....

Reviewed by Gainesville Coins review by T. S.. | February 15, 2012

I'm not wanting to flame a company, but inform consumers about a major FACT. Gainesville Coins isn't really a new company. Please google "National Gold Exchange, Tampa" - the Yaffe's went bankrupt in a questionable way, hosing lenders to the tune of some 35-50 Million dollars. One of the brothers Mark Yaffe built a 28,893-square-foot mansion for $25 Million and during this time and claimed he didn't know where all the coins were. He used the proceeds to build the mansion and crowned the misdeed by cooking National Gold Exchange's books to conceal the exchange, Sovereign Bank said. Turns out these exact same guys own Gainesville Coins and when the bankruptcy went down they were already running it out of the same location and the court had trouble with what gold/silver belonged to what entity. Today, the store is literally 1 block away from the gate to their home community where he still has his "fraud" Mansion. It's amazing how this type of business exists today when all this information is available online but few have read about it. Tulving is another company that has filed bankruptcy 2+ times and was even charged with fraud by the FTC. Gainesville & Tulving are some of the slime of precious metal world - and again, it's all available online for people to research.

Reviewed by Chris | January 26, 2012

I have ordered from several of the dealers represented on this site. My experience with these guys was by far the worst. I'm not a high maintenance customer, I do A LOT of shopping for A LOT of different things on-line so I know what to expect in most cases. However, if you are going to spend your hard earned money on bullion....pick someone else to buy from. I could go on and on about the time I've wasted and headaches...but I wont. Just do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.

I want to compliment Gainesville Coins on their very professional staff. I purchased some 1 oz Gold American Eagles for myself as well as a 1/10 oz Gold Eagle that I was giving to my grandson for his Birthday. As I was going through my package I took out the packing material (or what I thought was packing material). The 1 oz Gold Eagles were awesome! My only issue was that I couldn’t find the 1/10 oz coin. I called Gainesville Coins and spoke to one of their reps. At this point I was in a bit of a bit upset but the rep remained calm the entire time and walked me through checking the box again. He suggested I look at what I thought was just packing material which I threw in the trash and sure enough there was a carboard envelope that contained my 1/10 oz eagle! I felt really dumb and what made it worse was that I completely missed the yellow sticker on the envelope that said coins inside. My eyes are not what they used to be! So overall I just want to say a big thank you to Gainesville Coins. A job well done!

Hi
Previously wrote that there was no communication from Gainesville coins afer i sent the wire.

Later i learnt the following things.
It seems their computer system automatically supposed to send an email confirmation did not send the email.

I was very concerned that they are not sending me the mail as money received and was little bit panic as the amount is > 50,000 dollars.

After 3rd day repetatively calling and explaining one of the person on the phone i am calling and not getting much luck
two of the employees infact they sent me the mail as the issue was escalated.

To my surprise on the same day they sent me a note saying my package mailed via USPS. i was very thrilled with their response.

Later after 4 days i got my packet,they have done the nested packing and excellent way and package was received very good shape.

TO be honest though i was little bit panic in the beginning, after the package was received i felt very happy that i used gainessville.

I really recommend them 5 stars

Thank you Gainesville Coins.

This time it is a new person called Nadia she said it may take couple of more days, but your wire is received 5 days back. Do not worry, but i can't guarentee you when we will send the email to you about confirming wire is received.

This is not the service we expect after sending wire for 50k and they do not even care for sending an email.

This is the first and last time I will order from Gainesville. There are much better companies to order from and I won't make this mistake again.

I had nothing but bad dealings with this company and it was only after contacting the BBB that they responded to keep thier rating with the BBB. However if you go to the BBB website and check this company out you will see they had over (25) complaints in a short period of time. I also checked Google on the company National Gold Exchange and they did file bankruptcy and merged with Gainesville Coins to hide who they truely are. In my opinion a company you really wanted to BEWARE of in my opinion.

This company use to operate under the name National Gold Exchange that filed for bankruptcy. If you google that name you will read all about it. I also want to note that this company is run by boys not professionals. The boys who seem to be still wet behind the ears will give your more stories than a library as to when to expect your product. My experience with a company Hunt Brothers proved to be much more cheaper and very reliable. SO BEWARE CONSUMERS shop around. Don't let companies who file bankruptcy then hide under another name fool you!!

This is a follow up to a review I posted on 12/02/11.

I received the coins I ordered and everything is fine. I also did not realize that they disclosed on the order form that they were going to ship my order on 12/2 which they did and it arrived a few days after.

I thought it was only fair that I mention this.

Way too slow to ship. 10 days after payment was wired and received I still have to shipment notice, been exchanging emails with this guy Brett who likes to argue but still no shipment.

I will not recommend this company, many others out there are happy to get my business and know how to treat a customer.
Won't repeat my mistake.

Purchased several times. No problems with any purchase, silver or gold. I use wire transfers which go smoothly and save $$. I find their shipping times to vary from 1 to 4 weeks. If you are in a hurry, buy elsewhere but always seem very reasonable when I have talked to them. I always get my merchandise. No problems as far as I am concerned.

Transaction using chrome as browser made local pick-up option difficult but other than that I've found telephone and personal interactions very pleasant. The delivery time was less than quoted for their Tampa showroom delivery. (local for me) The prices are the lowest I've found. Five stars as far as I'm concerned. I'll let you know if things change in future transactions

Disgraceful in terms of the amount of time it takes for delivery. Always an excuse. Never any ownership of the problem. Never a single thing they can do. My last order took 5 weeks. Before placing my current order I called to make sure I wouldn't have the same problem....'we apologize for what happened last time. But it's much slower now. 3 to 5 days tops.' Well that was 2 weeks ago. I ORDERED SILVER EAGLES!!! Nowhere in sight. Silver eagles. We're not talking about a rare coin here. I get the impression this is a guy in his living room just placing orders with real dealers as they come in. They clearly have zero inventory. IT'S a joke. Use AMPEX.

I've ordered from Gainesville several times.
Decent selection and prices. Good quality. Never had any problems with shipping. My only complaint is their shipping costs seem high, especially if you're just ordering one coin. I definitely plan to place more orders with them.

Forgot to mention another reason I like Gainesville. There's no minimum order like a lot of online dealers, so I don't have to buy 20 or more coins at a time.

Gainsville is a dishonest company i asked why the perth mint 1 oz silver year of the dragon coins did not come in the original mint rolls and they lied and said they dont come in mint rolls . Everyone else sells them in mint rolls of 20 and they said if they were selling them in the rolls they were packaging them in those themselves. Why do they have to lie to me , they have lied before to me as well do they think I am just stupid?? I wont deal with them again.

Do yourself a favor listen to the negative reviews here and save yourself the time and frustration and make your purchases somewhere else. I spent over an hour on the website and on the phone trying to make a purchase but couldn't get anywhere. And don't expect their customer service to be of any help, they only have one line in their book, it's not our fault it's everyone else.

I dealt with this company as a dealer and let me tell you in my opinion they are a very strange company to deal with. I am certain they operated under a different company name the National Gold Exchange Inc (Google the name) they filed for bankruptcy and then mingled their inventory with Gainesville Coins to make it difficult for their creditor to do an inventory. My personal expereince with them proved to me that they are FAR from professionals and very suspect in the way they do business.
