Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) April 10, 2013
Park Avenue Numismatics, a leading Rare Coin and Precious Metals dealer, announced today that it has purchased StraightSilver.com (http://www.straightsilver.com). The precious metals website focuses on the sale of silver bullion and related items, including American Silver Eagles, Canadian Maples, Silver Philharmonics, certified silver bullion, silver rounds, bars as well as a variety of mint products. “We have been bullish on silver in the last few years. Many investors have been waiting for the right time to make an investment in Silver, now could be the one of the best times in recent years. In times of economic uncertainty, investors tend to purchase silver as a store of value and hedge against the uncertainty in the markets. Now may be a good time to act so we feel there is a synergy with our existing business model. This was a natural progression in serving our customer base,” according to Bob Green, President & C.E.O. of Park Avenue Numismatics.
“We’re constantly striving to offer the best products at the best prices to our customers, and StraightSilver.com has a user friendly portal that allows silver bullion consumers to point, click, and purchase a wide variety of silver bullion products. We liked the technology, and with more than 10,000 active repeat buyers the decision to acquire this business was an easy one,” said Bob Green. “In order to help serve our customers, who are already adding silver to their holdings as well as rare coins, certified modern bullion and other precious metals, they need easy access and live streaming prices. StraightSilver.com provides that service.”
