This write up of Tulving explains who Tulving really are and what they deal in and is well worth reading before you buy gold from their website

Before you buy gold from any gold dealer, it is always a wise move to find out all about them.

Who are Tulving

Tulving is owned and run by Hannes Tulving, President. If you phone them you will more than likely find him on the other end of the phone. The Tulving website has been operating since December 1996 so has been around for over 12 years.

Hannes Tulving, Jr. originally became a full time coin dealer in 1976. He began by selling coins at a local Swap Meet, and then started to attend local coin conventions. Early in his career he was fortunate enough to meet John Wayne, "The Duke". The Duke became one of Mr. Tulving's largest customers, buying gold bullion from him on a regular basis.

In 1979, Mr. Tulving moved the operation down to Newport Beach, California, where it has been ever since.

PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) is the largest independent grading service, as well as one of the two most reputable services. In late 1985, they wanted Hannes Tulving involved. In a letter from David Hall, founder of PCGS, to Hannes, they invited him to be a member of the grading board and Tulving has been one of the graders for the PCGS ever since.

Tulving Payment Options
Tulving only accepts bank wires as payment for their products. When you call and place your order you fix the price with them, at the time of the order, and they will give you a shipping tracking number for gold, silver, platinum and palladium two days after they get the wired funds in their bank account.

You can get the bank details from their site but it is a good idea to confirm these and your order when you call them. It is also a good idea to write down the detail of the call with time, date, the name of the person you spoke to and what was agreed including amounts, quantities and prices.

The minimum bank wire Tulving accepts is 7500 US dollars.

Tulving Financing

If you are a business, you can finance buying gold with Tulving with their financial arrangement in conjunction with PCGS. This with the Collectors Finance Corporation. The interest rate is 4 percent plus whatever the prime rate is, which is a lot less than say, GE underwritten credit cards which many jewelers offer. They do not provide consumer loans.

The terms include that the coins are held by PCGS until the loan is totally paid out, the minimum loan is 10,000US dollars, the maximum term of the loan is to be one year and all coins purchased must be graded by the PCGS

For bullion you can borrow anywhere from 65 percent up to 80 percent of the value of the bullion. The PCGS website is and the finance service is .

Naturally it is always better to pay cash for any precious metal coins or bullion.

Selling Gold to Tulving

You can sell pretty much any gold, silver or platinum coins to but the gold minimum is 10 Ounces, Silver Bars or Rounds Are 200 Ounces, Silver Eagles are 40 Ounces.

Tulving do not accept Colorized Silver Coins nor do they buy Odd Weight Silver. But there is no maximum on what they will buy.

They will pay directly when they receive the precious metal or coins but if you want them to acknowledge they have received your items you will need to ask them to do so before you send them.
