What Our Customers Are Saying

“Professional, helpful and no stress approach made my purchase very simple. Fast shipping, low prices and great follow up. The coins were better than expected. I would recommend MBE to anyone looking to purchase precious metals. You will not find a more honest and sincerely company out there.”
“I recently purchased silver bars from MBE and the exchange went wonderfully. The staff was polite and helpful, the product was exactly what I expected, and I had it in my hands in just a few days after ordering. I would definitely buy from MBE again.”
“I was very pleased with my dealings with Midwest Bullion Exchange. I did not feel rushed on the phone with the representative and felt free to ask any questions. My father who has dealt with a lot of other companies that deal in precious metals was also impressed with this business.”
