Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How is the PMC Ounce different from an ETF?
The similarities between the PMC Ounce and an ETF is their ease of trade and trading based on real-time pricing, and those are positives attributes. What separates the PMC Ounce from the typical ETF, and where the PMC Ounce really provides investors with outstanding value, is as follows:
The PMC Ounce is 100% fully allocated bullion
The individual investor is recognized as the owner of the bullion at the depository level
The PMC Ounce seeks to capture the benefits of a diversified precious metals position such as; reduced volatility, blended returns and the opportunity to capture the positive investment characteristics within all four of the underlying metals.
The PMC Ounce is not a financial instrument of derivative, thereby eliminating the associated counterparty risk of those financially engineered products.
Q: Do the percentages of gold, silver, platinum and palladium fluctuate?
Each PMC Ounce is comprised of a fixed and logically weighted quantity of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. This consistency allows for the ongoing uniform valuation and easy tradability of each PMC Ounce. The value of the PMC Ounce changes in direct correlation with the real-time market pricing of each of the underlying precious metals.
Q: How will i know the metal has been deposited into my account?
The PMC Ounce stands far above all other physical precious metals investment options in its reporting characteristics and capabilities. The bullion that backs each and every PMC Ounce is held at an independent third-party bullion depository. The depository directly links each investor with that individual’s quantity of PMC Ounces owned and the bullion backing each and every PMC Ounce. Further, this independent record keeper reports account activity and bullion holdings directly to the investor.

Q: Can I take delivery of my metal?
