Important to mention before we go into more details of this review:
We always strongly recommend to do your research online before you choose a company to invest with. There are so many reviews online of clients being ripped of and scammed. So please investigate thoroughly before you make your decision.
With that being said, let´s continue with the review on GoldCore!
What is GoldCore about?
GoldCore is a gold broker that was founded in 2003. It has been serving clients in the U.S. and over 130 countries internationally.
It got over 4,500 clients and over $130 million in assets under management and storage.
It´s physical “headquarter” address is: GoldCore Ltd, No. 1 Cornhill, London EC3V 3ND, England and GoldCore Ltd, 14 Fitzwilliam Square, Dublin 2, Ireland
How does it work?
It is a website where you can buy gold, silver, platinum, and palladium online.
It works in 4 simple steps:
- Open your account
- Lodge funds
- Purchase order online or via phone
- Decide on delivery or storage
The products offered are bullion in the form of coins and bars.
You can choose between gold, silver, platinum, and palladium
They also got a great gold saving plan that might be something you are interested in.
GoldCore also got some great FREE material for you to take part of and educate yourself and that is always a good idea (below are just a selection of their wide selection of FREE material available for you!
Do they offer any IRA alternatives for you?
The answer is no, they don´t. At least not for the moment.
If you are looking for precious metals IRAs then I would strongly recommend you to check out GOLDCO instead.
Can you get the gold (and other metals) delivered to your home?
Yes, you can get them delivered to you personally and store them wherever you want.
However, I could not find any info on their site on how long it normally takes to get your order, also there was not clear on their website on shipping costs…
Can you store your investment with the company?
No, you can not store your metals with the company direct.
However, they offer (with its partners) storage in Delaware, New York, Salt Lake City, London, Frankfurt, Zurich, Singapore, Hong Kong and Perth.
Can you sell back to the company?
Yes, you can.
Can anybody in any country use the service?
Yes, you got international shipping with the company and they got clients in over 130 countries worldwide.
Is GoldCore a scam?
So, is GoldCore a scam? No, it is not a scam, it is a legit company of course. It would not have survived since 2003 if it wasn´t. It got a real physical address and real owners, and (see below) great reviews and ratings from its clients:
GoldCore got an overall good reputation online from real users. The website Ekomi.co.uk (opens in new window) got over 900 testimonials from users and the overall score is 4,8/5 stars (see screenshot below):
Are there any red flags?
Well, the only concerns I see is that even if it got great reviews on the Ekomi.co.uk site it is also the ONLY place where you can find reviews on the company.
That can be a concern. Why? Well, because pretty much all of it´s competitors got reviews and ratings from the more common (and bigger) sites such as: TrustLink, TrustPilot, RippOff Report, BBB, etc.
This is absolutely worth to mention and you should be aware of this even if it ain´t a big deal red flag.
How´s the support?
One thing I always put a lot of weight on when it comes to a companies support is if you got a live chat function to ask your questions directly on the website.
GoldCore got this, and that is a big plus, at least in my book.
You can also contact them with questions either through e-mail, normal mail or by calling them.
- Been in business since 2003
- Good reviews
- Their gold saving plan
- International shipping
- Low minimum investment
- Not that many reviews (only from ONE site)

Final Words and Verdict on GoldCore
Overall rating: (4.3 / 5)
Ok, I think that sums it all up pretty good. This (GoldCore) is a legit company, there is no doubt about that. However, it is hard to recommend it as there are a few question marks around it, mostly in the form of a lack of reviews and ratings online from some of the more common rating sites.
So the rating 4,5 out of 5 stars feels fair to give for now. This might change to a higher or lower score in the future of course. But for now, 3,5 stars it is.
As always, the choice is up to you. You are a smart person, so am sure you will find the right company that suits your needs.
I would pick up their FREE material if I was you though:
Which Company Do You Recommend?
I would say that you should go with Goldcore, at least if you want to buy yourself some loose bars and order them home, but check out some of their free material first, you should always educate yourself.
If you are looking for a gold IRA custodian besides any other company, you should check out GoldCo.
GOLDCO have ZERO complaints from A LOT of real users. Used by celebrities, respected by well-known publications, and websites.
And A LOT more benefits!
