About Us

The more than 30 years of experience of our expert team in the field of commodities, resulted in 2007 to the foundation of Elementum Deutschland GmbH – your competent partner for investments (purchase and sale) in physical silver, gold and other precious metals.

Since then, another 5 independent Elementum companies have been established throughout Europe  for the precious metal world. Among others in Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, Romania and Portugal. This resulted in the Elementum Group.
