About The Spot Price
Many people ask about the meaning of the “spot price” of gold and why there is a difference between the price of a gold product and the current spot price. The key is to understand that the spot price reflects the current “non-physical price”. To learn more, see a short video.
Buy Gold and Silver Direct…
younique's Gold Shop gives you two ways to enjoy the private ownership of gold and silver. You can buy directly from our store of premium privately issued collectibles. There are pure gold and silver certified products of varying weights to suit your budget.
… Or Start A Savings Plan
Alternatively — or additionally — you can participate in our one-of-a-kind Nest Egg Savings Plan.
The Nest Egg Savings Plan was designed to make the private ownership of gold and silver possible for all people, regardless of their current financial situation.
The Plan allows you to accumulate grams of gold and silver through a fixed monthly payment, starting as low as $25 a month. You select a product from our store, and when you have saved sufficient gold or silver grams towards the product, it is yours.
You can change the amount of your payment any time you like.
Each monthly payment buys you additional gold or silver at the current price of the metal for the date of your payment. So the exact amount of gold or silver added to your product will vary from month to month.
You get to track exactly how much gold or silver you have saved at your personal online account page. The moment you have saved enough gold or silver, the product is yours. We can ship it to you or have it vaulted securely for you — see below.
Two Ways To Hold Your Products
Once your purchase of a product is complete, we can ship it directly to your address (restrictions apply in some countries: please ask). Alternatively, we have your product safely vaulted with one of Switzerland’s most respected vaulting companies, ViaMat International. The choice is yours.

Shipping and Vaulting
All younique’s precious metal products are produced and certified by Argor-Heraeus, a leading London Bullion Market Association refiner based in southern Switzerland. For worldwide distribution they are shipped to Zurich by ViaMat International, the largest security firm handling precious metals in Switzerland.
All precious metal product orders received by Viamat are fulfilled in a secure, constantly monitored environment. FedEx, the preferred carrier of our precious metal products, collects shipments throughout the week for direct international dispatch.
All shipments are fully insured by younique. Once ViaMat delivers the consignment to FedEx, the tracking number is loaded into your Business Center under your Order History. Please note that FedEx does not ship to post office box addresses. Fedex requires a phone number in your order.
We encourage you to ask your local FedEx agent or customs authority about any duty or taxes that may be payable upon delivery. Some countries prohibit the importation of gold or silver to private individuals, or their regulations are highly restrictive. Also be aware that in any country, the regulations governing gold and silver can and do change.
For these reasons, younique offers you the ability to secure your products in Switzerland at ViaMat’s London Bullion Market Association accredited vaulting facility.
