Texas Precious Metals, based in Shiner, Texas, is one of the largest precious metals dealers in the United States.[3][4] The company reported annual revenues of $180.1 million in 2013[1] and $153.2 million in 2014.[2] The company is recognized as a market maker for United States Mint products and is an official distributor for the Perth Mint of Australia.[5][6]


In 2010, Texas Precious Metals originated as a joint venture project between Saab & Company Inc. and Kaspar Texas Traditions (KTT). The company maintained a business-to-business model serving the wholesale market, selling gold and silver bullion exclusively to coin shops and precious metals retailers.[7]

In 2015, Inc. (magazine) recognized Texas Precious Metals as a member of the Inc. 500. Texas Precious Metals, the largest subsidiary of Kaspar Texas Traditions comprising 99.8% revenue, was ranked the #200 fastest growing private company in America with a 3-year growth rate of 2,095%.[8]

In 2016, Texas Precious Metals responded to Texas HB 483 with a proposed solution for the Texas Bullion Depository[9] but lost its bid to Lone Star Tangible Assets.[10]


The company's signature product is the Texas Silver Round.[11]
