The SACDC voted United Gold Direct #6 (which was previously Merit Gold & Silver – which has gone out of business).

With a solid reputation present on major third party review sites, United Gold Direct is a fast growing company that offers real solutions for the precious metals investor. The reason SACDC has ranked it #6 is due to the fact that they still have sliding scale fees (as opposed to the top choice).
