1/10 oz. 9999 fine gold coin Canadian Maple Leaf $200.00 CAD. e11805

Fraction pure gold non taxable coins rarely come up for sale. We get a good number of the full 1 oz. variety but 1/10 oz. examples are uncommon. This 2102 9999 purity Canadian maple leaf is perfect in every way. It’s never been out of its plastic container. Not a scuff, scratch or fingerprint can be seen. Most major coin dealers are asking around $250.00 for one of these if you’re lucky enough to even find one. The 2012 $5.00 fine gold maple leaf is a relatively low mintage product, according to the Royal Canadian Mint this is one of just 25,000 made. We have one and one only. Estate priced at $200.00 CAD and no HST. There is no tax on the sale of precious metals, Revenue Canada looks upon these sales as financial transactions therefore not subject to any form of sales tax.

100 oz. fine silver 9995 bar $2,025.00 CAD (no tax). e11803

Silver bullion is so inexpensive right now. 1 ounce of silver is over 85 times less expensive than 1 ounce of gold. The historic relationship of gold vs. silver price is closer to 40 to 1. There have only been 2 other times in history that I’m aware of when the silver/gold ratio has been higher than right now. This tells us that gold is overpriced or that silver is under priced. With all the chaos in the world at the moment my personal belief is both silver and gold are under valued but much more so in the case of silver. With silver pricing as low as it has been for the last few years we’ve slowly been acquiring silver but seldom (almost never) do we sell any of it. For all those people who call us asking for silver bullion here’s your chance. This 100 ounce bar of 9995 fine silver was made by Ohio Precious Metals LLC. The bar only measures around 6″ x 3″ x 1″ but is surprisingly hefty when you hold it in your hand. It weights just a little under 7 pounds. There is no HST on the sale of precious metals as Revenue Canada looks upon these sales as financial transactions therefore not subject to the HST. Everyone should own some bullion as security against the effects inflation has on your cash. This is one of only a couple 100 ounce bar we are selling at the moment. Estate priced at just $2,025.00 CAD (credit card purchases please add 2% service fee). First come first serve. Contact us immediately if you’re interested. Stock #e11803.

Silver bullion is so inexpensive right now. 1 ounce of silver is over 85 times less expensive than 1 ounce of gold.

150 grams of raw Yukon river gold (spot plus 5%) e8958

e8958 raw oatmeal goldIf you’re a gold bug like me here’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. 150 grams is just shy of 5 troy ounces of raw natural Yukon river gold for sale. I’m sure you’ve seen this stuff on TV shows like Gold Rush Alaska and Yukon Gold but there’s nothing like owning a bit yourself. A travelling miner came through town and offered for sale a small portion of what he had prospected from his secret location somewhere around Dawson city. 150 grams was all I could convince him to sell me. He really didn’t want to sell any but you can’t just walk into the local hardware store for supplies and pay with raw gold. After some delicate negotiations he reluctantly parted with just enough to get him the cash he needed. These are not tiny fine dust particles of gold some measure almost 1cm in length. They are big enough to use in hand made nugget jewellery. This gold resembles oat meal flakes in general dimensions. The glass bottle is a little smaller than of a roll of nickels but what in contains is about 3500 times more valuable. Raw gold like this isn’t typically 100% pure. Often there is a little silver, copper and trace amounts of other metals. River gold from the Dawson area is usually quite good. We picked a few random samples from the bottle and had them tested with a x-ray fluorescence spectrometer. This cool high tech instrument calculated the samples contained on average 94.6% gold, 3.8% silver, a bit of copper and other metals. This testing method is non destructive and gives the most accurate results besides melting the entire lot down and ruining the natural beauty. We will not separate the material into smaller amounts. It’s all 150 grams or none. If you have an interest in ancient natural gold come in and have a look at this amazing stuff. For current gold price in CDN click here. Estate priced at spot plus 5%.

14kt. pearl enhancer diamond pendant 1/10th oz. 9999 fine gold 6.9gr. $525.00 CAD. e11236

The 1998 $5 fine gold coin isn’t really worth a whole lot more than its gold content making it a safe place to start for those not versed in the art of numismatics. This kind of non-collectible coin is merely a monetary place holder. Its 1/10th ounce fine gold content is worth around $160.00 CAD at the moment. That uncomplicated coin is a perfect center piece for this 14 karat yellow gold pendant. With its detailed depiction of lady liberty carrying her iconic torch of enlightenment and an olive branch of peace. The simple but well made frame has a petite round brilliant cut diamond set into each of its four corners. The hand made bail is more than suitable for any chain size but is also a hinged pearl clasp, allowing it to snap onto any bead necklace. All together the well made pendant weighs 6.9 grams, measures a total length of 33mm and is estate priced for $525.00 CAD. Stock #e11236.

1881 & 1906 U.S. $5.00 coin pendants your choice $700.00 CAD each. e10438 e10439

 This is one very cool jewellery item. Each of these 90% pure gold coins are well over 100 years old, dating from 1881 and 1906. They’ve been expertly modified for use as jewellery. An attractive 4 petal, floral design bail was delicately soldered to each of the 21.6mm diameter coins. The craftsman who attached the 22 karat yellow gold bails did so with great care, making sure the gold solder didn’t bleed into the fine surface details. The large sturdy bail enables the coins to be worn on a variety of large chain or cord style necklaces. Don’t worry too much about the diminished numismatic coin collector value because of the modification. These are both relatively common coins with close to 8 million examples being struck. Each coin pendant weighs an average of 9.69 grams and contains approximately $475.00 CAD worth of gold (at current market price). As a suggestion we are showing the pendants on a black rubber and leather cord necklace with sterling silver clasps. The cord necklaces are available in a variety of lengths,colours and gauges. We are including one of these necklace options with the purchase of either coin for no extra charge. Each coin pendant and necklace is estate priced at $700.00 CAD. Stock #s e10438 and e10439.

City of Barrie 125th Anniversary gold coin. Spot gold price plus 25% (no tax). e5220

You can’t get more rare or nostalgic than this. This is a 24 karat solid gold coin commemorating the city of Barrie’s 125th Anniversary in 1978. To our knowledge there is only one other coin like this and it belongs to the city from information I could gather. It was presented to the previous owner as a prize during the city celebration. The other side of the coin depicts the Barrie’s coat of arms. The coin weighs approximately 28.5 grams. The best part about this coin is there is no HST due to the fact it is 99.9% pure gold and revenue Canada looks upon this kind of sale as a “financial transaction” therefore not applicable to tax. The coin is for sale for “spot price” plus 25%. Stock #e5220.

1883 U.S. $10.00 gold coin. Gold value only (zero premium). e10600

Some coins, especially the gold ones have all the right stuff to become objects of jewellery. They’re made from high quality precious metal, they’re usually of a reasonable size, they are somewhat rare (especially the antique examples) and most of all they are beautiful. Pendants, brooches, cufflinks, rings have all been made from gold and silver coins. Sometimes the transformation from currency to jewellery is simple and causes no harm to the coins. Other times they get holes drilled through them or they get components permanently attached with solder. At one point over the last 134 years the tail side of this coin had something soldered to it then removed. The telltale evidence of solder can easily be seen in two spots around the outer edge. I suspect the coin served duty as a brooch for some time. Although not an incredibly rare coin with over 200000 being struck its too bad this solder contamination can’t easily be removed completely. It’s still a great coin made from 90% pure gold with an actual fine gold weight of 0.48 oz. The gold value could always be obtained by recycling it, but that would be a shame. It’s still just too beautiful to suffer such a fate. The coin is being sold for only for the gold content it contains, no extra fees aside from applicable sales tax. Stock #e10600.


90% pure gold Ludwig II King of Bavaria 1874 20 Mark German coin $550.00 CAD. e9807

e9807 20 Mark Germany Ludwig II 1874 coin 002Ludwig II was king of Bavaria from 1864 until his death in 1886. He was Bavaria’s “Unser Kini” or “Cherished King” due to his passion for walking among the common people and chatting with farmers and laborers. He was known for the lavish gifts he would give to any common person who showed him hospitality. He was also known for his great love of theater, music, and architecture which he used to build up and celebrate the culture of Bavaria. With his own personal fortune (never the state’s money) he built two palaces and Neuschwanstein Castle; all of which, to this day, draw huge crowds of tourists to marvel at their intricacy and grandeur. Walt Disney’s magic kingdom castle was inspired by the Neuschwanstein castle. This very good condition, 7.91 gram, 90% pure gold coin was made for the 10th anniversary of Ludwig II’s succession to the throne. The coin was one year off from marking the exact middle point, and arguably the high point, of his 22 year reign, which ended in his mysterious death in June of 1886. Many believed he was murdered by Bavaria’s government who had three days earlier tried to overthrow the king under accusations that he was mentally ill. As he was in deep personal debt with a very aloof attitude towards matters of state, Bavaria’s government felt he was a threat to the country’s future. This coin is a wonderful celebration of a very complex life. Collectors price $550.00 CAD. Stock #e9807.e9807 20 Mark Germany Ludwig II 1874 coin 001

Although we’re not coin experts by any means we love the artistic and intrinsic value of all things beautiful including coins.

I’ve got to hand it to the Americans, not many countries produce coins with such inspirational images. No matter political perspective the people of the United States are as patriotic as any nation in the world. The symbolism of this coin is uplifting and encouraging, you can’t help but get a positive feeling when you look at it. At over 100 years old the condition is very good. The edge of the coin is decorated with additional stars instead of the usual “coin edging” seen on most others. It was struck from 90% pure gold and contains 0.4839 oz. of the precious yellow metal. We are not coin experts at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers but we know gold and we know beautiful things. It is priced at just 10% over the current price gold is trading at.

10gr. 20gr. 999 fine gold spot+4%. 14kt. frames $137.00 & $207.00 CAD. e11590 e11589

Sometimes you can make a pretty convincing argument that jewellery can be an investment. In this case there is no doubt these pendants are a wearable investment. Most of the value in the two pendants comes in the form of pure gold wafers that are sold tax free. The only sales tax we need to collect is on the portion of value the 14 karat yellow gold frames represent ($137.00 and $207.00). Each wafer is made by Credit Suisse. This giant Swiss multinational investment banking company has been around since the mid 1800s and had revenues approaching 30 billion dollars last year. If you ever want to sell a wafer the threaded bale can simply be unwound to release the bar. This method of securing the fine gold ensures it doesn’t get contaminated with solder. It also allows us to sell you the individual parts so the sales tax only needs to be collected on the frame section. At current gold levels ($1560.00 CAD) the wafers are worth $520.00 and $1040.00 including our 4% markup. If your a gold bug buy them both as a his and hers set. They are also available for purchase separately. Stock #e11589 and #e11590. Please add 2% for credit card purchase.

Rare poured Engelhard 2 ounce fine gold bar. Spot price plus 20%, no bank fees, no shipping fees, no waiting. This is an HST exempt sale. Believe it or not this bar is quite collectible amongst gold bugs. They don’t come to market very often and they always sell for well above spot price. Once they are purchased they are usually squirreled away never to be seen again. There is no sales tax on a fine gold purchase like this. Gold has pulled back from almost $1900.00 a number of years ago per ounce to around $1700.00 CAD as I write this. Who knows where the price will be in the future. Everyone should own a little of the only real internationally recognized currency that has a 5000 year history of retaining value. Gold is incredibly dense, it is 19.32 times heavier than an equal volume of water. Our little bar is surprisingly compact, occupying a space of around 3.25 square centimeters. Engelhard refinery is no longer around and these poured bars are quite rare now. This bar has an actual weight of just over 2 troy ounces at 62.26 grams.

Scotiabank 999.9 24k 1 oz. wafers. Spot plus 2%.

You could buy a good used car for the price of these 9 round gold wafers but we all know what sort of investment a used car is. Ten years ago that car cost $40000.00, today it’s worth $15000.00 (if you’re lucky), ten years from now it’s worth a couple hundred bucks at the scrap yard. Today all 9 wafers will cost you just over $15000.00 CAD. Ten years ago they would have cost about $7200.00. Who knows what they’ll be worth in 10 years, but I imagine they’ll be worth a whole lot more than that rust bucket you thought was pretty cool. Coins don’t rust, they don’t break down, and you don’t have to fill them with fuel every week. You can buy them as a passive investment and sell when the time is right. We offer 1 ounce fine gold coins and bars from time to time but seldom do they show up in lovely untouched presentation boxes. These wafers were manufactured and certified by Valcambi Switzerland and privately labeled for Scotiabank Canada. Valcambi are one of the largest metal refiners and thought to be the largest refiner of gold in the world. Each package is individually serial numbered. The best part about a fine bullion purchase like this is there is no tax. It’s a true investment that is looked upon by the government as a financial transaction and therefore not subject to any form of sales tax. The cost for each wafer changes with the price of gold. You can check the current price of pure gold in Canadian dollars or most other international currencies at Kitco.com. Each coin is priced at current “spot price” plus 2%. We can accept payment in both CAD or USD. We are unable to accept credit card payment for these coins. Everyone should own some gold bullion as a small component of your investments. Buy one, buy 2 or buy them all. First come first serve. Stock number e11108.

1882 U.S. double eagle gold coin. Spot plus 5%. e11053

Sure we could just melt it down and sell the 0.9677 oz. of pure gold this coin contains but we feel destroying such a pretty thing would be a shame. Considering it has been around for 136 years it is in remarkable condition. The US mint produced 1,125,000 of these coins in 1882. While such a number seems high, consider this perspective; there were only about 1 of these coins for every 50 citizens in the United States according to the 1882 census. That sounds about right as most people of the era wouldn’t consider carrying such a large amount of cash with them. The average wage in the late 1800s in the United States was typically around $2.00 to $3.00 per day, making the coins value equivalent to about to 2 weeks work. Today (Jan. 31 2018) its gold value is around $1600.00 CAD, or about the same as 2 weeks work at today’s wages assuming 40 hours per week at $20.00 per hour. Amazing how some things stay the same. The value of gold’s purchasing power has remained remarkably stable over the centuries. Having a little gold is usually a pretty safe way to protect yourself against the effects of inflation. Rare, not really, but we still don’t see these old coins too often. We are selling this coin for just 5% over the actual value of gold it contains plus applicable tax. Stock #e11053.

Fine gold 1oz. Canadian maple leaf gold coins (spot +4%) e10892-e10897

Got a difficult person to buy for this year? I bet they don’t have one of these. Canadian 1 oz. fine gold maple leaf coins are one of the most sought after bullion coins in the world. These coins were introduced in 1979 and are minted using Canadian sourced gold. They were the world’s first ever pure gold bullion coin. They are a minimum of 99.9% pure and are not subject to any sales tax. The Canadian Revenue Agency looks upon the sale of these coins as a “financial transaction” therefore not taxable provincially or federally. They can be difficult to find and quite often not available to us. These six examples just came in. They are all from the year 2008. This may be a good opportunity to pick one up. No one knows where the price of gold is going but 10 years ago it was selling for around $700.00 per oz. Today as of this post it’s over $1600.00 Canadian. These coins are being sold for gold price only plus 4%.  A good place to see the current price of gold and other precious metals is www.kitco.com No shipping, no extra fees, no waiting for delivery and the satisfaction of owning the actual physical metal. First come first serve. Call ahead first as they come and go quite quickly. Please add 2% for credit card purchases. Stock #e10892-e10897.

2 x 1/2 oz. 9999 pure gold coins gold value +5% (no tax). e11110

A lot of people have some cash squirreled away for a rainy day. That’s probably a pretty smart thing to do; you never know when you’ll need a little cash. The problem I see with that plan is that inflation will slowly erode the buying power of that cash. We recently experienced just this effect at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers. A client of ours came in and purchased a nice pair of diamond earrings for his wife. He paid for the purchase with a $1000.00 bill his father gave him literally over forty years ago. His father left it to him with the instructions to, “buy something special with it”. The diamond earrings purchased for his wife certainly qualified as special but what if he just bought some gold and left it alone for the same 40 years. $1000.00 CAD back in 1977 would have purchased around 7 ounces of gold that today are worth over $11500.00. We’ll never tell you gold is the best investment you can make but it has historically protected people against the effects of inflation compared to holding on to your cash. Perhaps everyone should hold on to a little gold for a rainy day. You can easily convert your gold to cash when the time comes along. We usually have a few ounces available for purchase. These 2 1/2 ounce examples are a little less common than the full ounce coins we usually come across. One is still in its protective plastic packaging, untouched by anyone. Pure gold is available tax free, no provincial or federal tax is applied to the purchase. The government deems the purchase of bullion as a financial transaction not subject to sales tax. The coins are available for just the value of gold it contains plus 5% (7% for credit card purchase). Up to the second gold pricing in most major world currencies can be seen here. Available separately.

e9339 1979 Cadian Maple Leaf $50.00 fine gold coin 999In January 1979 gold was trading for around $225.00 USD per ounce. By early 1980 it had shot up to $850.00 USD. Not a bad return if you timed the market correctly. If you bought gold a few months after the 1980 high at $500.00 USD it would have taken you around 25 years to get your money back when in 2005 it broke through the $500.00 barrier again. What does all this mean? I have no idea, but gold really hasn’t done much in the last few years and the world is a much more complicated place than it was the last time gold spiked. There are billions of people around the world who don’t trust paper money and they all want gold. It’s not a bad idea to hold some of this precious metal as an alternative to cash. Buying pure gold like this is tax free, there is no sales tax on precious metals like gold, silver and platinum. This 1979 coin is priced at the current price of gold plus 4%. An interesting website that follows the gold price is kitco. You can see the current price of gold in Canadian dollars along with excellent historical charts and commentary on precious metals. Holding a little gold is a great way to protect yourself against inflation when it takes more and more paper money to buy what you need. These coins can be difficult to find and we don’t always have them in stock.

Not just because it’s beautiful to look at but  it feels great between your fingers and it could be a great investment too. Investing in the stock market is a key element to many investment portfolios, but one could also argue holding a little gold is important. After all, even the oldest companies can’t compete with the 5000 year history that gold has as an object of considerable value. Although the value of gold is always changing against what it is typically compared to (paper currency). It has always been welcomed for trade in almost all cultures for any other commodity you may need. You can’t just print more gold. It’s a good way to offset the affects of a weakening dollar and inflation. We don’t see many US coins around here and are happy to offer this 1999 22 karat US $50.00 coin that contains exactly 1 troy ounce of the precious metal. A beautiful likeness of Lady Liberty shows on the obverse side with powerful images of the majestic bald eagle on the reverse. e9233.1 US 1oz gold coin $50.00 In good condition showing great detail.

e7932 $20 US gold coinIf this coin could talk imagine the stories it would tell. Doing a little research into 1904 reveals quite a different world than now.  Some interesting facts about 1904. Only 8% of U.S. homes hand a telephone. The average wage was only 22 cents an hour. 20% of the U.S. population couldn’t read or write. There were only around 8000 cars in the U.S. and this $20.00 gold coin would have represented  approximately 7% of the average U.S. worker’s yearly wage. An interesting comparison is that today the value of gold in this coin is equal to around 3% of the average U.S. income of around $44000. The coin measures a little over 34mm diameter and weighs 33.4 grams made from 90% pure gold. When this coin came to us it was in a frame bezel that was soldered shut. A trace amount of solder contaminated the edge of the coin and on the eagle side at the “DO” in DOLLARS (see photo). The solder is very hard to see and does not diminish the beauty of the coin.

e8968 Fine gold Canadian $50.00 coinIt’s hard to believe that 1995 was 20 years ago. Back then gold was trading at around $500.00 per ounce Canadian and century old Canadian telecommunication company Nortel was trading on the stock market for around $38.00 per share. 5 years later Nortel was trading at over $1200.00 (after accounting for a 10 for 1 reverse stock split in 2006). Today those shares are worthless. During the same 20 year period gold had a less exciting valuation from around $500.00 to almost $1900.00 and now is around $1430.00.

1888 and 1921 Morgan dollars 90% silver $100.00 for both

Morgan dollarOccasionally unusual coins surface with our estate offerings. Most are not worth any more than the metal they are made from. These two came in with a some old worn out pieces of jewellery that were gathering dust. Looking at the tarnished surfaces I would say they’ve been gathering dust for half a century or so. These United Stated silver dollars are known as Morgan dollars named after the designer George T Morgan assistant engraver for the US mint. The 1888 coin is one of almost 32 million minted that year. The 1921 is one of over 86 million. They are 90% pure silver and 10% copper making them a little more durable. We are not coin experts and these have not been expertly assessed, but they look pretty good to me considering they are 127 and 94 years old. With silver selling for around $20.00 per ounce these coins contain approximately $30.00 of the precious metal. Having an older item or two like this is just kinda fun. Even if you are not a coin collector they have a special attraction. The age, the patina, the large 38mm size and the heft just make them different than the base metal coins we use today. They came in together and they are being sold together only for the estate price of $100.00.1988 1921 Morgan dollar

e8563 Canadian maple leaf coin 999 fine gold coin How’s everyone feeling right now about investing in the stock markets? Since early September Canada’s TSX stock index is down 11.5% (as of Oct. 15 2014). Are you nervous about world events? Maybe now is the time to get your feet wet in the world of precious metal investing. I’m not suggesting that you take investment advice from a small town jeweller but here is a fun way to diversify your assets with a tangible item. This is one of the world’s most pure gold coins, in fact it’s 99.9% pure. That means when it is sold NO HST is collected. Canada Revenue Agency looks upon this as a financial transaction therefore not subject to any tax. People have used gold as a means of payment and trade for around 5000 years. Paper money has only been around for a couple hundred years and is really just a promise note guaranteed by the issuing government. Everyone should have at least some gold and silver with their other investments. These coins are also just really cool, they are only slightly bigger than a Canadian $2.00 coin but they weigh almost 4.5 times as much. They are very sought after and don’t come in very often. The price of these coins changes every minute. We are selling for the “spot” price gold is trading plus 4%. To see the current price of gold in Canadian dollars have a look at Kitco. First come first serve on this very good example that dates from 1979. The 1979 issue is the first year of  production for Canada’s bullion coin and depicts a young 39 year old Queen Elizabeth II. Imagine the next time you call heads or tails with this coin. Who knows it might also make a good investment too. Stock #e8563.e8563.1 Canadian fine gold 999 coin

Unopened roll of 1967 commemorative centennial dimes $75.00

centenial dime rollAn unusual item for sure. Recently a customer came in with odds and ends from their mother’s estate. Among the small jewellery items and loose silver coins was this unopened roll of commemorative 1967 Canadian centennial silver dimes. The 50 dimes in this roll have likely been wrapped up in the green paper BRINKS roll for over 40 years. Each coin in this roll weigh 2.33 grams and is made from either 80% or 50% fine silver. With the increasing value of silver the composition of these coins changed from 80% pure to 50% part way through 1967. Some quick math suggests this roll contains 1.86 to 3 ounces of fine gold worth around $38.00 to $62.00. These coins are not rare but of the almost 63 million minted many have been recycled for silver salvage. Not many have survived in a vintage paper roll like this. This would make a great gift for someone born in 1967, a coin collector, or someone who wants to invest in the silver market with a unique group of dimes that should always sell for a premium over just the silver value. Estate priced at $75.00.002 centenial dime roll

1979 Russian 10 Rouble Chervonetz Gold Coin Spot Plus 20%

This coin just screams communism in some of its most basic concepts. The bare foot worker sowing seeds by hand in a field with the sun rising in the background. A distant factory with smoke drifting gently to the east. This is no subtle subliminal message. The coin dates from 1979 when the cold war was still on everyone’s mind. I was a young kid back them but I remember the fear and threat of nuclear weapons. A little over 20 years later and no more communist Russia. This is not the most rare coin but they sure are scarce around here. It would make a great conversation piece. The coin is made of 90% pure gold and contains 0.2489 ounces of gold. This coin is estate priced at spot price plus 20% and is subject to HST.

2 U.S. Gold $1.00 Coins $400.00 (for both)

We are not coin experts at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers but sometimes we come across interesting examples. These two $1.00 U.S. gold coins date from 1853 and 1854. They came in as a set of earrings which is why they are in such good condition. They had a tiny jump ring soldered to the edge that has been removed. As a piece of jewellery they didn’t suffer the wear and tear associated with a coin that has been in circulation for many years. Made from 90% pure gold they weigh a combined 3.33 grams. When new the published weight was 1.672 grams each, so they have retained over 99% of their original mass. I think they are a great value at $400.00 for both but I will let the numismatics out there decide. I will gladly email pictures to anyone interested.  THIS ITEM HAS BEEN SOLD
