Tarek Saab graduated with a BS in electrical engineering from The Catholic University of America and a BA in liberal arts from St. Anselm College. After working for five years as Texas Instruments’ global marketing manager for portable power semiconductors, Tarek decided to accept a spot on season 5 of NBC’s The Apprentice in 2006 with Donald Trump. This period in Hollywood would prompt Tarek to publish his memoir: “Gut Check: Confronting Love, Work, & Manhood.” A precious metals expert and entrepreneur, Tarek founded Saab & Company Inc, under which he owned and operated an online bullion business, Guardian Commodities. In 2010, Tarek partnered with Jason Kaspar to co-found Texas Precious Metals and has since worked tirelessly to build it into the multi-million dollar company it is today, designing innovative online operation systems and creating a solid framework for business to consumer transactions.
The eldest fifth-generation Kaspar, Jason is the CFO of Kaspar Companies, the Co-Founder of Texas Precious Metals, and the CIO of Ark Fund Capital Management, a global asset management company. Using the money he made from mowing lawns, Jason bought his first stock at the age of 13. As a high school student, he called his broker between class periods to buy and trade stocks. Jason graduated summa cum laude from Texas A&M University with a bachelor’s degree in both finance and accounting. Before settling down in Shiner, Texas, Jason lived in both New York City and Dallas, working as an investment research analyst for Highland Capital Management and a corporate restructuring analyst for FTI Consulting. With a firm foundation in his faith, Jason balances his enthusiasm for business by two-stepping and traveling on the weekends.
Thomas Prasifka worked with the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for 30 years before joining the Texas Precious Metals team. With a bachelor’s degree from Sam Houston State, Thomas excelled throughout the TDCJ system. He was a senior warden on multiple facilities for nine years before his promotion to the assistant director position in the Manufacturing and Logistics Division. In his TDCJ career, Thomas was appointed to the deputy director positions for both the Support Operations Division and the Correctional Institutions Division. Ready to embark on a new path, Thomas retired to the city of Shiner and joined the Texas Precious Metals team as a trader, where he soon advanced to his managerial position.
They did more than expected. The purchase was here faster than anyone I had done business with in the past, it was free to ship (even UPS Next day air), and they called me afterwards to ensure I was pleased.
Excellent service and a quality product. Information and updates were readily available. Will definitely keep doing business with your fine company. 100% as advertised. Have already received second order and getting ready for a third.
I appreciate that service was exactly as stated in the ordering and shipping categories....it's nice to know that there is still truth in advertising....I will order again soon....thanks to the Texas Precious Metals staff.
Very happy with the exchange. I have to admit, I was very nervous about the whole process with my hard earned money in the balance, but it went smoothly. I plan on doing more of it. Too easy.

Texas Precious Metals' annual Texas Silver Round series commemorates the Lone Star State with original illustrations of Texas icons, designed by renowned medallic sculptor and bas-relief studio artist Heidi Wastweet. Comprised of one troy ounce of .9999 pure silver, the bullion coin's episodic reverse is opposite a fixed obverse design depicting the state’s geographical silhouette as the setting for its symbolic star. The 2016 Texas Silver Round spotlights a clever and prominent predator found throughout Texas: the coyote. Known for its mischievous intelligence, the coyote has a deep American history rooted in adaptation and survival. The nocturnal creature’s raucous howls permeate the nights surrounding Texas’ diverse terrain. Notorious for eating a wide range of foods, including livestock and crops, the coyote’s destructive reputation makes it a popular target for varmint hunters.
Exclusively designed, built and sold by Texas Precious Metals, our Texas Silver Round Monster Box is the only sealed Monster Box for silver rounds in the world. Unlike the plastic boxes from government mints with breakable vinyl straps, we produce a durable cold-rolled steel custom box with a beige grey matte powder-coated finish. Each box ships with a serialized holographic seal to ensure protection. Our Monster Box holds 500 ounces of Texas Silver Rounds, and our Mini-Monster Box holds half of that at 250 ounces.
We welcome clients to pick up orders in person at our facilities. We are open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST for client pickup. Please make an appointment. We request at least 24-hour advance notice of your arrival. We do not have a showroom, and for security reasons, our vault is not located at our administrative address. If you are picking up in person, be advised that we are Texan, so the entire staff is armed.
