How do you determine your silver pricing?
Our management team determines the price of our silver. Instead of following hourly and daily price fluctuations, we watch for trends and price our silver accordingly.
What forms of payment do you accept?
First Majestic accepts: Visa, MasterCard, Wire Transfers, Cheques, E-Transfers and Cash*
Please note: Canadian cheques will be subject to holding period of 5 business days to clear.
*Cash payments totaling $10,000 CAD or greater within a 24 hour window are subject to identity verification and reporting as per FINTRAC regulations.
Who mints your silver?
Depending on the product, First Majestic silver bullion products are minted by Sunshine Mint or Scottsdale Mint.
How do I know that my silver is real?
A maker's mark and statement of weight and fineness is stamped directly onto First Majestic silver rounds, medallions, ingots and bars. The bullion, in effect, bears its own 'certificate' from the mint that produced it. In addition, each item purchased will be shipped with a Certificate of Authenticity stating this information.
What is the difference between numismatic coins and silver bullion rounds?
Numismatic coins derive much of their value from their collectability (condition, vintage, rarity and history). These coins are typically sold by coin dealers. Numismatic coin prices are not always based on the market price of silver, whereas silver bullion coins are directly linked to the value of silver. First Majestic sells silver bullion coins and bars that are sold strictly for their investment value and weight.

Why am I limited to 500oz. per month?
First Majestic is committed to providing quality silver bullion at competitive prices to our shareholders and to the general public. Rather than selling our silver products to just a few large buyers, we aim to have silver available for as many buyers as possible, necessitating monthly limits.

What happens if I decide to cancel an order?
Once your order has been submitted, you have entered into a binding agreement with First Majestic. All sales are final. Payments will not be refunded for the delay of shipping your order or due to limited inventory.
Why am I paying over spot?
Spot price represents the cost of a contract for silver (5000 oz.). For tax compliance issues First Majestic purchases the silver at spot, the silver is then shipped to a mint, minted, then shipped to First Majestic's warehouses, adding to the cost to have the product turned into bullion.
Why do you use .999 silver and not .9999?
Our silver is a minimum of 99.9% pure, usually 99.96-99.97% the additional costs to have it refined to 99.99% would add to the cost of our products.
Where can I sell my silver?
First Majestic currently doesn't buy back silver, nor does it endorse any companies. We recommend using your preferred search engine to look up local coin dealers or online retailers who do purchase silver.
