Rules affecting the gold industry come from a variety of federal and state laws, regulations and guidance.

To address compliance, Augusta has a compliance team that includes a outside counsel instrumental in designing our systems and overseeing our activities to help the team comply with these systems.

We know it’s important for you to work with a gold company that demonstrates integrity.

Federal and state laws and regulations exist to protect consumers when making large purchases such as the physical gold and silver portfolios Augusta provides to our customers. Compliance with these laws is one of the tenets of Augusta Precious Metals’ operation.

You will find evidence of this throughout our website, marketing materials and official documents, as well as in phone calls and web conferences.


Augusta Precious Metals’ compliance team is led by attorney Mary Obidinski. She acts as outside counsel to help us stay compliant. For more than a decade, Ms. Obidinski has advised clients across a variety of industries on marketing and other regulatory compliance matters.

Our Compliance Steps

With guidance from Ms. Obidinski and other contracted professionals, Augusta Precious Metals has taken the following steps to forge practices that are fair and follow the law and federal and state guidelines:

  • We developed an internal training program to educate employees on compliance matters affecting our industry. Ms. Obidinski conducts courses on compliance to educate the team. Augusta personnel are given opportunities to practice calls and receive feedback on the compliance of customer conversations.
  • We have easy-to-follow compliance sheets and administer compliance exams.
  • The entire company works from a general compliance manual and we have established specific compliance protocols for each department.
  • Ms. Obidinski oversees a phone call monitoring system designed to help the team follow compliance protocols. She flags infractions and instructs the company to initiate an educational or disciplinary process as needed.
  • We conduct periodic internal audits to assess the efficacy of current compliance strategies and target areas for improvement.
  • We consult with Ms. Obidinski and the rest of the compliance team to be accurate in written material, such as website copy, guides, brochures, videos and other marketing materials, in addition to internal policies and protocols.
  • Augusta works with a contracted editor/writer with compliance experience who oversees creation of internal and external materials. This person follows outside counsel recommendations for compliance.

Some companies will give you reasons to buy gold that we do not believe are in fact good reasons. We are open about this – and often warn our customers about "bad reasons to buy gold."

In the services we provide, Augusta Precious Metals focuses on the needs of our customers, including their need to know they are working with a reputable company.
