Blanchard & Co., Inc.
Blanchard is a family-owned company with broad reach and deep roots in the precious metals market. Our founder, Jim Blanchard, helped pave the way for the millions of Americans today who leverage precious metals and rare coins to enhance and protect their wealth.
Jim Blanchard spearheaded a nationwide, grassroots movement to legalize gold ownership. Blanchard arranged for a biplane with a "Legalize Gold" banner to fly over President Nixon's second inauguration, and he held press conferences across the U.S., at which he brandished gold bars and dared authorities to arrest him.
In 1975, one year after President Ford legalized the private ownership of gold, Blanchard opened the investment firm of Blanchard and Company, Inc. in New Orleans, Louisiana. Today, Blanchard has served more than 450,000 clients with expert consultation & assistance in gold, platinum, silver and rare coin investments.
