Even though the APMEX company first started with only four employees selling Precious Metals out of a small storefront, APMEX has grown to an 80,000-square-foot building with more than 300 people on staff. Over the last 20+ years, we have sold more than 130 million ounces of Gold and Silver in more than 60 countries around the world. Our employees have always been a vital part of our success, helping us become a leader in Changing How the World Buys Gold™. From our initial rapid growth to expanding into a worldwide business as a top internet retailer, our hardworking employees believe in what we do.
An Established Business
APMEX has grown into one of the largest eCommerce retailers in the Precious Metals industry since opening its doors in 2000. Our founder saw that selling Precious Metals online was going to be the way of the future and our online platform has allowed us to sell Precious Metals products to customers worldwide and at a wide range of price points. With over 20 years in business, our experience has helped us become a leader and we use our position to provide educational resources for beginners and experts to inform and ensure that we know our stuff.

The owner Scott Thomas won the Presidential Award in 2009 from the American Numismatic Association and APMEX was voted Best Place to Work in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 by The Journal Record. We are also proud to have the only fully shoppable mobile app in the industry because we have taken note of consumers’ needs and worked to make their lives easier.
Growing up in a household that struggled with food insecurity, APMEX Founder and President Scott Thomas finds much to appreciate in the mission of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. His passion for helping hungry Oklahomans has spread throughout the company, with regular food and fund drives and volunteer opportunities that employees at all levels of the company enjoy participating in. It is important always to remember who helped us get to where we are now, and without community support from organizations like the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, our president might not be where he is today. This is why we give back and contribute to the fight to end hunger in Oklahoma. Learn More
