Bolivia is proud to have: Royal Silver Company (an update!)

2014-08-14 07.36.26 pm

Kudos go to Royal Silver Company, a Bolivian company that exports quality in silver and gold coin fabrication.

Bolivian Thoughts in an Emerging World was fortunate enough to make an update of this post, as a result of a direct contact, today October 10, 2011, with Mr. Brian McConnell, CEO, Royal Silver Company (Bolivia) S.A.

Mr. McConnell says “…the fact that our silver coins are actually the purest silver coins ever made. Our coins are not 99.99%, which would make them higher purity that all other silver coins except the Royal Canadian Mint, but rather our silver coins are 99.999% pure silver, which makes them the purest silver coins that have ever been minted in human history. NO other mint in any country on earth has ever made such a pure silver coin.”
“We are the only mint that offers provenance silver–silver than can be traced from rock to final product.”
“We are the only mint that guarantees our coins were made with zero emissions from the rock.”
“We are the world’s only zero-emissions smelter, refinery and mint.”
“All of our claims are independently certified, including monthly assay reports from SGS, the worlds largest testing and standards organization. No other mint engages an independent assayer to certify the quality of their products.”
“Our patented technology can revolutionize the minerals industry in Bolivia. Yet, sadly, nobody is a prophet in their own land (nadie es profeta en su propia tierra). We struggle alone in almost absolute anonymity in Cochabamba. The average citizen and the average “authority” have no idea we could break Bolivia free of the cycle of dependence and provide Bolivia with an additional 2 billion in annual revenue, which is what the country loses by exporting silver-lead-zinc concentrates is raw form.”

El Dia newspaper also released the following information:

“From Bolivia we have challenged the greatest refineries in Switzerland, USA, Austria, Canada, China, Australia, with precious metals so pure that none of the coin mint operations of those large world companies can match us”,  says Brian McConnell, Executive Director for Royal Silver Company.

Despite of all the incommensurable problems and difficulties that any Bolivian exporter has to endure, Royal Silver Company is competitive; 50 direct employees and around 200 indirect jobs move this venture. Their primary coin clients are in Singapore, USA and Australia.

McConnell said three incentives are needed: clarity in taxes; a modern and coherent Mining Law; and to eliminate the disincentives over national industries. As awkward as it may seem, Bolivian minerals cost less outside our borders. If Royal Silver Company were to be in Chile, we could purchase Bolivian minerals at a lower price than being in Bolivia and with greater incentives for all the industrial cycle.

Goals.“For 2012, implement a new way to finance the new ecological melting operation to work with zinc-lead-silver in Oruro, with the purpose of increasing the production of gold, silver and to improve current investment alternatives in  Bolivia”, McConnell said.

There is 99.999 % purity in all the products made by the company, they have international certification. In 2008, they started raw materials exploitation and processing in Bolivia. The US Patent office has awarded them the patent number 7,892,505 due to their originality in their technology.,-la-unica-empresa-que-fabrica-monedas-de–Oro-y-Plata-en-el-pais&cat=1&pla=3&id_articulo=75549

    This “highly respected” company is failing to return money of its investors. The Royal Silver Club Members are bring scammed of their hard earned money by Brian McConnell and his company.

    1. Bolivian Thoughts says:

      1. Mark says:

        Heres a link from 16 December 2013, it looks like the criminal is starting his games again.

  3. Concerned Investor says:

    Brian McConnell and his company are not returning investor funds nor paying out interest (silver coins) on their Silver Club Bonds as promised in writing. This company is putting a black eye on Bolivian companies and with foreigners doing business in/with Bolivia. Many customers are owed thousand of dollars and the company isn’t even responding to emails. Many people on the internet are posting now that this company is a fraud and I myself have been defrauded by this company. Too bad for Bolivia this company is representing their country worldwide.

    1. Thank you SO much for your important information!

  4. Scammed! says:

    It sickens me to see such praise originally on this site, for what now seems to be an intensional act of fraud by this obvious snake oil salesman Brian McConnel. You can add me to the list of people who were totally scammed out of thousands of my hard earned money by this clever con artist. “Too bad for Bolivia…” Is an understatement. Hope you’re sleeping well these nights, Brian. Ever hear of a little thing called Karma?

    1. I respect your opinion, this blog just makes public what Bolivian newspapers report, translating to English. If you have a link to a news, related to your experience, please share with me, so I can make it public too, thank you,

    Is it simply me or does it look like some of the remarks appear like they are left by brain dead visitors?
