BullionSupermarket was originally developed in 2008 as a private tool by a couple of precious metal collectors who happened to be software developers. The tool was built initially for themselves to trawl internet auctions to find good value bullion coins and bars. Later that year it was opened up to the public.
2020 sees the latest incarnation of BullionSupermarket.com. It has added even more tools and price comparison mechanisms to guide Gold, Silver and Platinum buyers through the physical bullion markets to the best value Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium.
The new BullionSupermarket.com site was Beta launched at the same time as the 2019/2020 Coronavirus pandemic was causing governments and central banks to ease monetary policy and implement stimulus on a scale never before seen since World War 2, making precious metal more relevent than ever before to event the small retail investor.
