Investing in precious metals is all about the money—your money—and that is why you want to be confident that you are dealing with the right company. MetalQuity is that company.


The name MetalQuity combines “metal” and “equity”; in other words, precious metals as an equity investment.  MetalQuity is in business to provide precious metal investment opportunities at the lowest prices, allowing clients to retain maximum equity.


MetalQuity was founded by Thomas Vander Laan, an experienced precious metal trader. Throughout his career in the industry, Mr. Vander Laan worked with the Internet’s major precious metal dealers, assisting his clients in making investments that best suited their objectives.

During this period, Mr. Vander Laan recognized first-hand many of the problems experienced by investors that plague the online bullion industry, including inventory issues, logistical setbacks, high premiums and padded prices, and ambiguous and misleading online ordering processes. Those drawbacks led Mr. Vander Laan to devise a better overall experience for investors where the quality of service is high and the premiums and prices of the precious metals is low.

Drawing on his experience and knowledge, and in consultation with his network of distributors, mint representatives, and other industry professionals, Mr. Vander Laan developed MetalQuity’s unique business model, which offsets each of the industry’s weaknesses and provides his clients more value than merely the intrinsic worth of their precious metal investments.

In 2013, Mr. Vander Laan incorporated MetalQuity Capital Group, Inc. in Nevada and “opened its doors” for business as a different kind of precious metal retailer.


The Internet is overwhelmed with bullion retailers so similar that their names are often the only things that differentiate them. MetalQuity invites precious metal investors to experience The MetalQuity Differences that set it apart.

  • The First Difference: Instead of having to navigate a sometimes confusing and slow-loading website, each order placed is completed in real-time, by telephone, with a live Account Manager located in the United States.

Each Account Manager:

  • possesses at least a Bachelor’s Degree in a business- or finance- related field, from an accredited U.S. college or university,
  • is knowledgeable and can assist and answer questions, and
  • can lock-in that moment’s spot-price to place each order.
  • The Second Difference: The spot-price of the gold, silver, platinum, or palladium ordered is locked-in, in real-time using the current Globex price provided by mints, refineries, and distributors. This prevents critical time delays from occurring, during which the spot-price can fluctuate before checking-out. It also keeps premiums low by avoiding the hedging fees that other dealers subsequently pass on to their customers.
  • The Third Difference: All of MetalQuity’s bullion products are sourced brand new in brilliant uncirculated or mint condition from the world’s leading mints, refineries, and distributors. Clients order bullion products from MetalQuity, knowing that they will never receive secondary-market products or counterfeit goods.
  • The Fourth Difference: While MetalQuity accepts deposits via Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express, deposits can also be remitted by bank-wire transfer or personal check when employing MetalQuity’s proprietary Money on Account™ (MoA™) system.
  • The Fifth Difference: When a client remits payment via bank-wire, MetalQuity applies a $10 credit to the order to offset bank-wire fees. Most other dealers require their customers to absorb that cost.
  • The Sixth Difference: MetalQuity does not maintain inventory, and therefore does not incur storage expenses and associated insurance fees. All orders are drop-shipped by the associated mints, refineries, and distributors to MetalQuity’s clients free of charge and fully insured. MetalQuity passes these savings on to its clients with premiums and prices lower than those of other retailers.
  • The Biggest Difference: At MetalQuity, you are treated as a client—not merely a customer.

These seven differences separate MetalQuity from other online bullion dealers by reducing its costs of doing business (and passing these savings on to its clients) while maintaining the quality on which Mr. Vander Laan and MetalQuity have built their reputations.

The table below illustrates MetalQuity’s minimum order policy. For example, the minimum order quantity of gold is 10 ounces with MetalQuity requiring an advance deposit of $50 per ounce, either preauthorized using a debit or credit card or pre-funded using the MoA™ system to lock-in the spot-price. Please note the minimum order and deposit for each precious metal.

MetalQuity’s proprietary Money on Account™ system was designed specifically to allow clients to lock-in the spot-prices of precious metals without using a debit or credit card when ordering.

Similar to a bank checking account, clients deposit funds into their MoA™ prior to ordering. When ordering, Account Managers will then quickly and seamlessly apply the necessary deposit amounts from the MoA™ to the orders to lock-in the spot-prices of the precious metals.

For complete details please refer to Money on Account™ Policies and Procedures.
