Analysing the timeless trend of Indians for their love of Gold and Silver, there would hardly be a household in Urban India who wouldn't have gold or silver coins at their home once they start saving. Adding to this thought was the fact that there was no specific platform in this niche who could give variety of options at transparent rates with 100% Guarantee on Quality of products being sold. This led to the beginning of thought behind CoinBazaar.
CoinBazaar was founded in Oct ' 2012 & is based out of Mumbai [The Financial Capital of India]. In addition to being the home town of all 3 co-founders, Mumbai's Zaveri Bazaar is regarded as the most trusted place for all Bullion Brands and it sets the benchmark for pricing of bullion coins & bars across India.
