Our industry affiliations with the American Numismatic Association (ANA), Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), Certified Acceptance Corporation (CAC) the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and Industry Council on Tangible Assets (ICTA) all reflect our commitment to fair and honest business practices that are consistent with the standards of each of these organizations.
IPM's main business offices are located in Silsbee, Texas, with branch sales offices in Brookeland, Texas.
ANA (American Numismatic Association) - The largest organization in the U.S. devoted to coin collecting and related interests. With headquarters on the Colorado College campus in Colorado Springs, the ANA is the most respected authority on all matters related to rare coins. Numerous IPM associates hold membership with this organization, and IPM holds status as a member dealer.
BBB (Better Business Bureau) - The nation’s largest and best known organization devoted to business and consumer protection issues, IPM is both a member and participant in the Bureau’s CARE program, which is focused on addressing the needs of the consumer, and commits IPM to prompt resolution of any consumer complaint - something that rarely happens, thanks to IPM’s focus on customer service. IPM is also a member of the BBB’s Online Reliability Program, which allows visitors to the company’s website to instantly check our affiliation credentials.
ICTA (Industry Council on Tangible Assets) - The national trade association for the rare coin, precious metals and tangible assets industry. ICTA works in Washington to protect and further the interests of the precious metals and rare coin collector and investor, and can claim credit for helping secure passage of legislation important to all who hold such assets. Reduced IRS red tape and the allowance of precious metals-based IRA accounts are but two important ICTA victories.
NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation) - Along with PCGS, one of two universally respected third-party coin grading services. Coins submitted for NGC certification are graded by consensus of a panel of numismatic experts and are encapsulated in a tamper-evident protective holder. NGC-certified coins are bought and sold “sight unseen” with confidence, owing to the respect and impartiality which NGC commands.
PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) - Along with NGC, one of two universally respected third-party coin grading services. Coins submitted for PCGS certification are graded by consensus of a panel of numismatic experts and are encapsulated in a tamper-evident protective holder. PCGS-certified coins are bought and sold “sight unseen” withconfidence, owing to the respect and impartiality which PCGS commands.
CAC (Certified Acceptance Corporation) - Whether you're a novice or advanced collector, you know that quality is what determines the value of a rare coin. However, within any certified coin grade, not all coins are "solid" quality coins. Now there's an easy way to identify coins that are solid for the grade - a CAC verification sticker.
TCDA (Texas Coin Dealers Association) - An organization of Texas-based coin dealers and related companies that promotes good business practices and supports the interests of collectors and investors everywhere.
United States Mint- IPM is recognized by the U.S. Mint as a nationwide dealer of U.S. Mint Eagle gold, silver and platinum coins. Only about twenty companies are so recognized in published Mint literature. Close communication with U.S. Mint officials is an important component of our research strategy for selecting coins for specific recommendation to IPM collectors and investors.
