About US


"We all know a need or problem; encourages creative efforts to meet the need, or solve a problem. This is the foundation that built Investor Crate. In a world where investing a dollar is so complicated and exchanges through so many hands, by the time that dollar is invested, it has decreased it's worth by 50%.

We pioneered a simple way to invest and we made it fun to do."

Investor Crate -- Your Treasure Is Here!

        -Makayla Joanne , CEO

Investor Crate started off with its founder and now Chief Operations Officer, Tyler Robinson. During his military career he use to exchange his paycheck from the Army, for boxes of U.S. Quarters. During his downtime in the barracks he would spend all afternoon sifting through 'roll hunting' looking for pre-1965 quarters which are made primarily of Silver. He would then change in those quarters at local coin shops for a profit. 


We started off as

a very small business

The profit was used to avoid the Army food and to increase his nutritional intake in order to meet and exceed physical demands during training. 

After injuries overseas and exiting the military, Tyler linked up with two lifelong friends, who helped turn Investor Crate into a thriving business. "We have to spread the wealth," said Tyler, "If we buy bulk and send bullion at those prices, then everyone can eat, just like I did." He has also maintained a strict policy of staffing at least 2/3rd veteran personnel since our inception.
