Tarek Saab

President and Co-Founder

Tarek Saab is the Co-Founder and President of Texas Precious Metals. Tarek 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. Around the acquisition of Guardian Commodities in 2010, Tarek partnered with Jason Kaspar to create the company 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.

Jason Kaspar

Co-Founder

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.

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.

doing business the texas way

Texas Precious Metals began as a precious metals wholesaler, selling gold and silver bullion exclusively to retailers and coin shops. We expanded our wholesale bullion business to the retail market in May 2011, competing against more well-known, albeit less reputable, dealers. We are recognized by the United States Mint as a national bullion dealer and a market maker for U.S. Mint products, as well as a national distributor for the Perth Mint of Australia. Texas Precious Metals is rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau. In 2014, Texas A&M University recognized Texas Precious Metals as the #1 fastest growing Aggie-owned or led business in the world. In response to the creation of Bill HR 483 signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott in June 2015, Texas Precious Metals has proposed building and managing the Texas Bullion Depository at our headquarters in Shiner, Texas. With low premiums, free shipping, spectacular products and fanatical customer service, there is no other company like us. To help ease the anxiety of purchasing bullion online, we reinvented our industry by selling only what we have in stock, shipping all packages via overnight delivery and simply “Doing Business the Texas Way.”

our texas silver round

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.
