Vickie M., Shipping Department

Coming up on 15 years at SilverTowne, Vickie has spent most of her time in the shipping department making sure that when people order from us, they get what they ordered and they get it safely. With high dollar products going in and out of our building every day, that job is pretty important. With a decade and a half under her belt, it is no surprise that she has seen a lot and done a lot in that time frame, including jobs outside of the shipping line.

Beginning Job Title: "I was hired into the shipping department from the very beginning. Back then though, I also did a lot of the building of projects like books, mint/proof set...read more

The History of the Morgan Silver Dollar

The History of the Morgan Silver Dollar

Morgan Silver Dollars. Need we say more?

The likelihood that someone in the coin business or an avid numismatic collector will tell you that their favorite coin is the Morgan dollar is rather high (in our opinion). Why would we take that chance? With a history that spans back just over 140 years ago since its beginnings, its popularity and numismatic impact have not dropped off in the slightest. With as many coins that have been produced in that time frame, whether it be silver, gold, platinum, copper, etc., that is quite a statement.

In understanding why this silver dollar is so important to the business and really...read more

September Is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: Spreading Awareness Through Silver

September Is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month: Spreading Awareness Through  Silver

“Everyone knows someone who…” Unfortunately, there are a number of ways to finish that sentence in today’s society. While that may be true, we are focused on only one way of finishing it and that is “...who has or has had cancer or a deadly disease.” The sad fact is, this rings very true for most Americans and really, everyone in the world. Cancer does not and will not discriminate.

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month within the United States and, according to the CDC, causes more deaths in women in one year than any other cancer in the reproductive system. The National Cancer Institute reports that 22,530 new cases of the hard to diagnose cancer has been estimated for 2019. They also report that the estimated deaths...read more

Never Forget: Patriot Day Silver Bullion Options Available

"The pain inflicted on our Nation on September 11 was felt by people of every race, background, and faith. Though many young Americans have grown up without knowing firsthand the horrors of that day, their lives have been shaped by it. They hear of the many acts of service that occurred coworkers who led others to safety, passengers who stormed a cockpit, and first responders who charged directly into the fire. Many Americans did everything they could to help survivors, from volunteering their time to donating food, clothing, and blood. And many signed up to don our Nation's uniform to prove to the world that no act of terror could eclipse the strength or character of our country." - President Barack Obama

The above was a section of the presidential proclamation made in 2016 officially...read more

Jackie H., IT Support Specialist

Impressions. We all have them of one another and made about us. When it comes to job interviews, they are pretty important. So what does it say about a person when they interview for one job and get called about another? Regardless of the position, that place of business thought you were right for them.

Although interviewing for an entry-level network engineering job, Jackie was called back to be told two things: she did not get the engineering job but was offered a place in...read more
