Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is a silver round?

  • From Wikipedia: Privately minted silver coins are known as silver "rounds" which usually have a set weight of 1 troy ounce of silver (31.103 grams of 99.9% silver). These carry all sorts of designs, from assayer/mine backed bullion to engraved automobiles, firearms, armed forces, commemorative, holidays, etc.

2. What is the difference between your silver rounds and silver American Eagles?

  • Fortress Bullion's rounds are not monetary units. American Eagles are produced by the U.S. Mint and are a form of currency (even though a 1-ounce silver American Eagle with an approximate silver content of $40-$50 is stamped with "One Dollar"). Both Fortress Bullion's rounds and American Eagles are .999+ silver and each contain 1 troy ounce of silver. Both are handsomely minted. Fortress Bullion offers both silver rounds, silver American Eagles and many other coins and bullion products for sale.

3. Do you insure your shipments?

  • Yes. Every package we send is insured for full replacement value. An adult has to be present and sign for the package when it is delivered.

  • Every package is mailed discreetly, with no indication on the return label that we are a precious metals company.

4. If I buy precious metals from Fortress Bullion and later on I want to sell them, will Fortress Bullioni buy them back?

  • Yes. Fortress Bullion purchases precious metals from the public and at some of the most favorable rates in the market. Fortress Bullion takes care of its customers! Fortress Bullion will exercise its discretion on which coins/bullion it will purchase, and what premium it will pay. Premiums vary daily and depend on supply/demand and other market forces. Please note that the market for precious metals is usually very large and liquid. Our coins and bullion products are of high quality, so a customer should be able to find a willing buyer (Fortress Bullion, coin shop, private party, Ebay, etc.) in a short amount of time.

10. Are your silver rounds proof-quality?

  • No, and Fortress Bullion does not market them as such. Some of our rounds show slight scratches/marks from the minting process. However, the extent of our rounds being handled is minimal: they touch each other during minting and during the hand-counting process. That's it. They are then mailed to you. Fortress Bullioin offers some of the nicest, finest rounds in the nation. They still have the "frost" of newly minted rounds and have been burnished to a beautiful shine.
