Become a Member of PNG-APMD

A PNG-Accredited Precious Metals Dealer membership will greatly enhance your stature within the precious metals marketplace. Many retail precious metals buyers are not familiar with numismatics. At the PNG, we feel that a working knowledge of numismatics should be a prerequisite for all professional precious metals dealers. For that market, additional endorsement as a PNG-Accredited Precious Metals Dealer will position you a cut above the rest.

Our effort to educate and protect the consumer and to raise the level of professionalism in our business have been a credit to the hobby since our founding in 1955. When paired with the standard of excellence associated with the PNG, becoming an Accredited Precious Metals Dealer will give your potential clients, in particular those with no numismatic knowledge or experience, the confidence they are looking for when purchasing precious metals.

To apply for accreditation to the PNG-APMD, applicants must:

  • Be a Full Member of the Professional Numismatists Guild.
  • Be at least 21 years of age and have a minimum of 5 years of experience as a precious metals dealer.
  • Have annual retail sales of precious metals totaling a minimum of $100,000.
  • Have a net worth of at least $250,000.
  • Agree by signature to abide by the APMD Code of Ethics.
  • Agree to submit to legally binding arbitration to settle any dispute relating to the purchase, sale or trade of precious metals items.

Applicants will be screened by the Board of Directors, and once accepted, will pay annual dues in the amount of $300.
