GoldMoney was founded by James Turk and his son Geoff Turk. Both understand gold's usefulness as a financial asset and value its worldwide role as money. By the early nineties they were already contemplating the use of gold in electronic commerce and increased use of the Internet enabled them to fulfil this goal. GoldMoney now offers the best way to buy gold, silver, platinum and palladium online and storage for all of these precious metals.
The charts below show the growth in the amount of metal stored with GoldMoney since its inception. Please note that GoldMoney did not start offering silver purchases and storage to its customers until January 2006.
After the economic crisis started to unfold in September 2008, the growth of customer assets accelerated, primarily due to an increasing number of individuals looking to protect their purchasing power by buying precious metals. For a detailed report on the metals and cash held for our customers, please see our latest monthly metals and cash report.
