The main reason Birch Gold Group is below Regal Assets is because of their higher fees. They particularly have a high markup on their numismatic gold and silver coins. The CEO, Laith Alsarraf, also has a history of working in the online adult entertainment industry. Having said that, Birch Gold Group still carries an A+ BBB and 5-star TrustLink rating. Birch Gold comes in at a very close second and should provide a good all-around experience for any future customers.

    I had to say I was planning on going with Birch Gold Group because of all the good reviews online. Even here it looks like it’s still a great choice, but when I looked at your comparison chart I saw they were number 2. I took your advice and went with number 1. I spoke to Charles by phone and he was very friendly and helpful. I’m currently awaiting the transfer from my custodian to finish, but everything is squared away. I think I would have been happy going with either one of the two but overall I’m very satisfied so far. Thanks for helping me make the choice.
