Over-the-counter transaction: cash in return for goods

We also offer you the opportunity to purchase precious metals in Freiburg directly and discretely in return for cash. This direct sale of gold and silver 'over the counter' is called 'Tafelgeschäft' in German.

All present sorts and quantities can be taken away immediately. For safety reasons, we store a majority of our goods not in our office but with two neighbouring banks. Over-the-counter transaction and cash sale are therefore only possible after date arrangement, in order that we can dispose the goods for you.

Simply arrange an appointment. Buy gold and siver over-the-counter in Freiburg!

Payment with Swiss franc is possible

Payment also in Swiss franc CHF

At Edelmetalle direkt, you can also pay your gold and silver over the counter in Swiss franc, if desired. Thereby, we take the current exchange rate of our reference bank as a basis and accordingly convert your Swiss franc into euro - free of costs and without any fees.


Over-the-counter transaction: also possible anonymously up to 1.999 EUR per person

'What the eye does not see, the heart does not grieve over' - as the saying goes. In the age of NSA, euro crisis, and the banks' and authorities' rage for collecting data, it is almost an archaic relic that in Germany it is absolutely legal to purchase precious metals for up to 1,999 EUR without mentioning the name or the address. Per person and per transaction.

Naturally, when making an anonymous purchase, you will also receive a proper invoice with the information 'what', 'how much', 'at which price', 'where', and 'when' has been bought. Simply, it will not be apparent from the invoice, if 'Müller', 'Meier', or 'Schmidt' has made the purchase. This is comparable to the receipt in the food market. The details are regulated by the German Money Laundring Act (Geldwäschegesetz), to which we naturally adhere.

  • anonymous over-the-counter transaction up to 1,999 EUR per person

Background knowledge anonymous purchase of gold and silver

The anonymous purchase of gold and silver in Germany is still legally possible up to a limit of 1,999 EUR. Yet! But there are rumours that this limit will be reduced down to 1,000 EUR. Take advantage of the privilege in the remaining time!

In some of our European neighbouring countries, the cash sale is either no longer possible or the limits for a cash sale lie at 1,000 to max. 2,000 EUR (France, Italy, Spain, Greece).

Only the direct cash sale can be realized anonymously. If a purchase is made e.g. on the internet or at a bonded warehouse, when purchasing precious metal stocks, -funds, -ETFs, -mining stocks, an automatic identification of the purchaser will always take place, both by the account movement and also possibly by the corresponding portfolio of securities.

And even several banks who still have a counter for cash sale of precious metals request the presentation of the identity card, which is partially even copied. Supposedly, this information is only checked on-site and is not stored?! It is obvious that these are bank internal guidelines, which would not be legally mandatory. Everybody has to evaluate on his own whether this is anticipatory obedience or actually the famous fear of terrorists. We doubt that real terrorists would choose this way, if they wanted to get to precious metals.


Free collection by the customer in Freiburg

Basically, you have the choice and decide whether you would like to pick up the goods free of costs or if you prefere the insured shipping.
