The award is run by the Bullion.Directory to find the world’s leading dealers.

Chard is one of the largest privately owned coin and bullion distributors in Great Britain. With over 50 years’ experience in the industry, founder Lawrence Chard, built up the business from sorting out coins at his grandmother’s amusement arcade to a multi-million pound international enterprise.

Lawrence said “Being a finalist for the UK Bullion Dealer of the Year 2017 is a fantastic achievement. There are over 102 UK companies listed in the Bullion.Directory and we are proud to have reached the final.
