Are you new to buying and selling gold and silver bullion, but find the topic confusing and hard to master? Do you want to learn more about gold and silver and how they can protect and grow your wealth?

Gold Survival Guide was started with the aim of being the “Survival Guide” for all things gold and silver. To demystify the sometimes confusing and conflicting world of gold and silver for precious metals investors.

We don’t just sell gold and silver bullion.

We educate, inform and improve your ability to profit.

Our Mission is:

Global education about wealth protection and monetary change.

On top of being passionate about physical gold and silver, we are passionate about educating people on the need for wealth protection. We want to make more people aware of the changes going on with money today, and those changes still likely to come to the monetary system.

We’ve often written how when you peel back the layers of various problems and challenges in the world today, the current centrally controlled monetary system is almost always at the heart of these issues. But yet most people are completely ignorant about what money is and how it is created. Or how the monetary system is set up to silently steal from them year after year.
We want to change this.

Our Motto/ Creed:

We educate first. Sell gold and silver second.

On our Gold & Silver Blog we have hundreds of articles and videos that can help you with buying, investing, storing and selling gold and silver. So before you buy you can be sure you know all you need to know.

Our Values:

Integrity above all else.

Our clients needs come first before profit.

We’ll always offer you the best product for you, not the product we make the most profit on.

Our Story

GoldSurvivalGuide was founded in 2009 by Glenn Thomas and David Deutsch. Both of whom had been personally involved in precious metals since the early 2000’s.

How Gold Survival Guide was Born

In 2008, David and Glenn met at an investment dinner in Auckland, where the chief economist of Casey Research, Bud Conrad, was speaking.

They got to discussing the lack of New Zealand focused gold and silver information online. So they shook on it at the end of the night and decided to do something about this.

As a result of that handshake, the GoldSurvivalGuide website was launched a few months later in mid 2009.

The name wasn’t intended to sound as apocalyptic as it perhaps does!

Precious metals often seem very confusing to the novice. So they set about creating the “Survival Guide” for all things gold and silver. To demystify the sometimes confusing and conflicting world of gold and silver.

Gold and silver are of course financial or wealth insurance, so they could potentially also help you “survive” a financial crisis or collapse. But the name wasn’t actually chosen for this reason.

GoldSurvivalGuide didn’t start supplying physical gold and silver for sale until around a year later in 2010. This was after receiving many questions like: How do you buy? What should I pay? Who should I trust?

Since then they’ve sold many millions of dollars worth of gold and silver to clients in New Zealand, USA, Australia and Europe.
