About McAlvany ICA
ICA was founded in 1972 by Don McAlvany and his wife, Molly, when they began operating modestly out of the basement of their home. Before starting ICA, Don was the National Marketing Director for the largest gold share investment company in the world.
Don frequently spoke around the country at investment conferences and routinely recommended precious metals to clients. He discovered that investors needed a precious metals firm which would provide reliable, fair, and ethical service to customers wanting to include physical gold and silver in their investment portfolios.
From the early days of the 1970s, Don’s recommendations to invest in gold yielded spectacular profits for his clients. When the price of gold moved from $35.00 an ounce to over $850.00, Don’s customers realized as much as 2500% gains in less than a decade. (This makes an interesting comparison to the bull market on Wall Street where the Dow moved approximately 400%.)
Don’s precious metals firm, International Collectors Associates (ICA), has grown into one of the largest full-service precious metals dealers in the United States. Don has assembled a staff of highly-qualified, like-minded, conservative advisors and support staff. They will eagerly educate and assist you with your investment questions and planning.
