American Hartford Gold Group was founded by a team of precious metals industry veterans who are committed to leading the industry in quality, pricing and service.


American Hartford Gold Group was built under Sanford’s simple credo that he learned from his father at a young age: provide the customer with unlimited education and an honest deal. Putting this philosophy into practice has led to an A+ customer satisfaction rating and made American Hartford Gold Group the fastest growing Gold & Precious Metals Dealer in the country. Investors receive only the highest quality gold and silver coins, offered at competitive prices with 100% customer satisfaction guaranteed. That’s a proven winning formula!

Raised in a close-knit farm family, Sanford developed a strong work ethic and sense of community at an early age. He studied economics at Eastern Connecticut State University and served in various senior financial management positions in New York City before moving out west to follow an entrepreneurial calling. He truly believes that customers are family and success comes only when you commit to providing superior service in every transaction.

In his free time, Sanford volunteers at several non-profits, pursues an active lifestyle and travels extensively. He’s a dog lover and can often be found at the office or the beach with his boxer “Cookie” by his side.

Sanford resides with his family in Santa Monica.

As Chief Executive Officer of American Hartford Gold Group , Sanford is responsible for the company’s overall strategic direction in the gold industry, attracting the most ethical and knowledgeable talent in the business, and maintaining the highest levels of customer satisfaction.


Scott is a proud Los Angeles native who owes his life-long love of precious metals to his father Harold, an avid coin collector who taught him to appreciate history, economics, and community. He learned that one cannot have true wealth without owning physical precious metals and made it part of his life’s mission to educate the world about how to protect retirement savings with safe-haven assets.

Working side by side with Sanford Mann, Scott started American Hartford Gold Group and shares Mann’s singular focus on customer service, high ethical standards and making the company a great place to work and do business with.

As President of American Hartford Gold Group , Scott is responsible for the company’s operations and back office as well as building and leading the company’s team of financial experts.
