3 x 100 oz. fine silver bars. Spot plus 5% (NO SALES TAX). 912-00484

Silver bullion is so inexpensive right now. 1 ounce of silver is close to 80 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 more distorted 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. These 100 ounce bars of 999 fine silver were manufactured by North Texas Refinery. The bars measure around 14cm x 7cm x 3cm but are surprisingly hefty when you hold it in your hand. Each weight just a little under 7 pounds. There is no sales tax on precious metals; Revenue Canada looks upon these sales as financial transactions therefore not subject to any form of sales tax. Everyone should own some bullion as security against the effects inflation has on your cash. These 3 are the only 100 ounce bars we are selling at the moment. Priced at just spot plus 5% currently around $4,250.00 CAD (credit card purchases please add 2% service fee). First come first serve. Contact us immediately if you’re interested. You never see fine silver bullion price a such a low premium over spot, usually it is at least 10% above the spot price. Stock #912-00484

1984 9999 fine gold Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin 1 ounce (Spot +3%). 912-000573

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. This is a true story that happened to us a few year back. A client of ours came in and purchased a nice pair of diamond earrings for his wife. He paid for the purchase with a $1,000.00 bill his father gave him in 1977. His father left it to him with the instructions to, “buy something special for your wife with it”. The diamond earrings he purchased for his wife certainly qualified as special, but what if he just bought some gold with the money and left it alone for the same 47 years. $1,000.00 CAD back in 1977 would have purchased around 7 ounces of gold that today are worth over $22,000.00. 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 an ounce or two around here available for purchase. This 1 ounce Canadian Maple Leaf $50.00 (face value) is one of the most popular gold coins in the world, made to a very high 99.99% purity by the Royal Canadian Mint. A gold bullion purchase like this is 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 coin is available for just the value of gold it contains plus 3% ( 5% for credit card purchase). Up to the second gold pricing in most major world currencies can be seen here. Stock #912-00573.

1985 9999 fine gold Canadian maple leaf 1 oz. coin (spot +3%) no sales tax. 912-00588.

Get is while you can. Gold is on a tear, who knows where it will end up. Since gold bullion like this is not rare or collectible their value is simply determined by the intrinsic gold value and not the condition. As a bonus this one is quite nice and comes with a protective plastic capsule (not pictured). These are an easy way for the average person to invest in gold bullion. In 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. Now in 2024 gold has broken through $3,400.00 USD! What does all this mean? I have no idea, but the world is a much more complicated place than it was the last time gold really spiked. There are billions of people around the world who have little trust paper money, but they do trust gold and the value it represents. 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 1985 coin is priced at the current price of gold plus 3%. You can check out the current price of gold in Canadian dollars here. 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. For credit card purchase please add 2% service fee.

1 kilogram (32.15 troy ounces) 999 fine silver bullion ASAHI (spot +10%) no sales tax. 912-00574

I’m pretty sure there are better potential investments than purchasing a kilogram of silver bullion, but I’m 100% positive there are many worse places to spend a little rainy day money. I’m also sure that buying this silver bar at just 10% above the actual silver price is a value few vendors will match. I can point out a few interesting facts about the cost of silver right now. If you’re reading this you likely know gold is flirting with an all time high in both Canadian and U.S. dollars, but silver is still need to appreciate close to 50% to match its all time high. Right now gold costs close to 90 times what silver does; historically speaking over the last 100 years or so that ratio has been closer to 40 times. Unless you feel gold is overpriced right know, silver is very undervalued. This bar can be purchased without additional sales tax. It is available for the actual silver value plus 10%.

1974 Franklin Mint flags of the United Nations (9.3lbs of sterling silver) $5,500.00 CAD. 720-00058

And now for something completely different. We’ve never been known for our selection of fine furniture, but this little coffee table definitely belongs among our vintage and estate treasures. This coffee table is more than worthy to be in our estate collection as it contains 136.35 troy ounces of sterling silver (over 4.2 kilograms). This unusual curiosity was produced by the Franklin Mint from 1974 through 1976. The table stands a little over 2 feet tall by 22 inches wide. Contained in 2 pull-out drawers under the glass are the flags of the United Nations countries as they were in 1974. This is a snapshot of world political history cast in high-quality 925 sterling silver ingots. A few of the 135 countries represented in this collection no longer exist today. According to the Franklin Mint website, each silver flag ingot cost $9.50 in 1974, the entire set cost $1,282.50 U.S.D. 50 years ago. These sets are quite rare as many of the 7731 produced were melted down just a few years later when the price of silver spiked from just a few dollars per ounce to almost $50.00 CAD in 1980. Finding a complete set without missing components in excellent condition is almost impossible. The set comes with its original hardcover book outlining the symbolism and meanings of each country’s flag. History collectors and those who recognize the value of silver may have an interest in this rare item. The average weight of each medallion is over one troy ounce and is 92.5% fine silver. At today’s silver price (April 5 , 2024) the silver content alone in this set is over $4,600.00 CAD. The complete collection including the table and book is estate priced at $5,500.00 CAD.

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 over 7000 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%.

U.S. Indian & Eagle coins (90% purity) 18kt. charm bracelet 171.8gr. tw. $16,000.00 CAD. 441-00222

It’s a pretty safe bet that there isn’t another coin charm bracelet anywhere else in the world the same as this one. The individual coins attached to this heavy curb link bracelet aren’t unique, but to see them in a grouping on a vintage bracelet is something we’ve never seen before. The coins date from 1881 to 1913 and have face values of $5.00, $10.00, and $20.00 USD. At today’s gold price (April 9th,. 2024) the coins and bracelet alone contain $14,490.00 just in fine gold content (4.54 oz. net weight fine gold). The coins themselves are 90% pure with 10% copper alloy to make them more durable as these coins were circulation currency of the era. The 5 coins have an average age of 128 years old. Around this time the average wage for an American worker was around 33 cents per hour, and the cost of an ounce of gold was about $19.00; meaning it would take the average U.S. worker approximately 57 hours of labor to buy an ounce of gold. Today gold costs $2,352.00 USD per ounce and the average American worker (non-farm payroll) earns $33.00 per hour or the equivalent of 71 hours of work to buy an ounce of gold. Isn’t it amazing that the hourly wage and the cost of gold have appreciated in parallel? This is an excellent example of how gold does a great job of protecting the wealth of those who have some and against the pricing pressures caused by inflation. The Italian-made double curb link bracelet measures 10.8mm wide, 8 1/4 inches long, and weighs 88.2 grams including the coin frames. The coins are not considered bullion as they are not pure, and are therefore subject to sales tax. If you’d like to buy all the coins in the 18-karat frames, they are priced at $8,000.00. If you’d like to buy just the 18-karat Italian bracelet it is also priced at $8,000.00 and weighs an estimated 80 grams. The bracelet was manufactured by SILO in Arezzo Italy. This company was founded in 1964 and is still in business today. They produce high-quality jewellery under their own name and also for private-label luxury brands. SILO even manufactures the machines that make the chain in their large factory. The complete bracelet including the 5 coins weighs more than 5 1/2 ounces. If you are like us and wish to keep this one of a kind coin charm bracelet together, it is available complete for $16,000.00 CAD. Stock #441-00222.

99999 (5 nines!) Rare Canadian gold coin, 35gr., Prairie Crocus, spot +5%, no sales tax. 912-00034

The Royal Canadian mint is arguably the finest in the world. Investors and collectors trust RCM for exceptional quality and worldwide acceptance when both buying and selling. RCM were the first mint to manufacture a coin of 99.9% purity in 1979. They raised the bar in 1983 to 99.99%. Occasionally they produce special series with an incredible “5 nines” 99.999% purity. Coins of this quality rarely show up in our estate department and usually sell for a significant premiums on the market. Five 9s coins are far more rare and used mostly for low mintage and commemorative editions. This are rare coin, just 1400 Prairie Crocus examples were minted in 2010. You’re not likely to encounter another one of these again. As with all forms of bullion, this coin can be purchased exempt of sales tax. The Canada Revenue Agency looks upon the sale of bullion like this as a financial transaction therefor not subject to sales tax. This coin is legal Canadian tender and has the unusual a face value of $350.00. It is interesting to note the coins weight of exactly 35 grams works out to $10.00 per gram. In terms of troy ounces the coin weighs 1.125oz. This coin is in proof condition and comes in a Professional Coin Grading Service case. PCGS have assigned a proof grading of 69, pretty much as good as it gets for quality. PCGS is the most respected name in third-party coin certification. If you have been investing in gold over the past few years you’ve seen a significant return. The value of gold has appreciated over 100% in the last ten years and more than 400% in 20 years, relative to a currency that is getting weaker every day from inflation. We almost never have 5 nine bullion, and this one is on offer for about the same price as regular 999 or 9999 gold. We don’t know of a bullion supplier who can match our price for anything of 99.999 purity, let alone a rare coin like this. Everyone should own some gold as a way of protecting against the effects of inflation and a depreciating currency. For credit card payment please add a 2% service fee. We only have the one and it is priced at the current value of gold it contains (1.125 ounces) plus 5% with no sales tax added. Stock #912-00034.

10 ounce 999 fine silver bar Republic Metals Corp. (spot +10%) no sales tax. 912-00192

Silver has shown some positive movement lately but you can still make a compelling case for the great value it still offers. 1 ounce of silver is 86 times less expensive than 1 ounce of gold. Over the last 100 years or so the historic relationship of gold vs. silver price is more like 40 to 1, yet gold is only around 17 times more rare than silver. There have only been a few times in history that I’m aware of when the gold/silver ratio has been higher than right now. This tells us that gold is overpriced or that silver is underpriced. With all the chaos in the world my personal opinion 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 to pick up a bit. This 10 ounce bar of 999+ fine silver was made by Republic Metals Corp. 8.4cm x 4.0cm x 1.0cm, but is surprisingly hefty when you hold it in your hand. At over 2/3 of a pound it is quite substantial despite the small size. We usually squirrel away this sort of thing away but at the moment it is taking up some value space. Who knows the next time we’ll sell off some of our silver hoard (don’t hold your breath). 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. The premiums are high at the moment for all precious metals as supply is quite scarce.

TD 1/2 ounce .9999 fine gold bar. Spot plus 5% (no added sales tax).

Fractional gold bullion is a popular option over full ounce and heavier products. In fact, if you have a 10 ounce gold bar or larger you may be surprised that not many people at excited to buy it. Heavier products are sometimes counterfeited using very sophisticated techniques that can be almost impossible to detect unless you drill completely through the bar and ruin it. We’ve seen tungsten core bars with a thick coating of .9999 fine gold. A scratch test won’t detect tungsten inside, x-ray testing equipment do not reveal what’s underneath the heavy coating, and tungsten has almost the same weight as fine gold so dimensionally they are the correct weight. Laminating a thick gold cap around something like this smaller/thinner 1/2 ounce TD gold bar would be expensive, difficult, and not worth the effort. Not only is there added risk when buying heavier gold bars, but your pool of potential customers is waaaaaaaaay smaller when that 10 bar is worth around $28,000.00 CAD. Yes please, we’ll take all the smaller fractional gold bullion you have. Our latest gold bullion offering is this 1/2 ounce TD bar with a nice low serial number of 000080. We cut into the original sealed packaging to confirm this one is legit. There are plenty of cheap fakes out there in sealed packaging. If the person selling you gold won’t cut the seal for you to confirm the contents, walk away. This bar is currently available through the TD bank where it sells for as low as 8.7% over the spot price and can be seen online here. You need to be a TD customer for this preferred price and payment must be made from your TD account. We are offering this excellent condition bar for spot plus 5% for NON credit card purchase. Please add 2% for credit card payment. There is no additional sales tax on fine bullion. Get it while you can, fractional gold bullion doesn’t show up around here every day. Stock #912-00526.

2.322gr. (0.0746oz.) fractional 999 fine gold collection. $275.00 CAD no sales tax. 912-00523

This is a small but really interesting collection of fractional fine gold bullion. Most gold bullion that passes through here are 1 ounce bars and coins. 1 troy ounce (31.1035 grams) is the universally accepted base unit of gold bullion and is the most common weight you’ll hear people quote when they are speaking about the price of gold. However, sometimes an ounce is more than you need and isn’t convenient, in much the same way as a $100.00 bill doesn’t help when you only want a cup of coffee. Fraction gold in smaller weights is more handy and sometimes easier to sell. Premiums on fractional gold is always more than full ounce or larger sizes, and is easier to sell or trade for the most part. It gets confusing when your fractional amounts are sold in portions of ounces and grams. Wouldn’t it be great if the entire world used the metric system of grams and kilograms for bullion trading? We have here a 2020 0.5 gram Canadian gold coin with a face value of 50 cents, a 1 of 7500 0.5 gram Canadian gold coin with a face value of 25 cents, two Scottsdale 1/100th troy ounce wafers, and two 1/10th gram wafers from Nadir Gold/Karatpay. I find the 1/10th gram wafers the most interesting. They are encapsulated/laminated into what looks like some sort of international banknote. This clever packaging is confidence inspiring and may help people become little more comfortable with the concept that gold is truly money. Whereas any banknote is simply a promise from a government of a dept payment equal to the value on the bill. There is really nothing backing up the value of the banknote except your faith in the government that printed it. The curious laminated gold bill is universally recognized for the value of the gold it contains, in this case 1/10th of a gram has a value of around $8.75 CAD as of this writing (Jan. 8, 2024). We’ve never seen these unusually packaged bits of gold before, but they are available or similar for around $20.00 and up. This set of 6 small fractions of fine gold adds up to 0.0746 troy ounces or 2.322 grams. As these items are fine bullion, the purchase is considered a financial transaction and not subject to sales tax. We are selling this collection as a set only for the estate price of $275.00 CAD.

6.14oz. 999 fine silver $35.00 per ounce $214.90 CAD (no sales tax). 912-00524

Doing a little housecleaning we found these miscellaneous fine silver bars and round tokens. They total 6.14 ounces in total and are being sold as a set only for $35.00 per ounce ($214.90 CAD total). These fine silver items are not subject to sales tax. The random collection has a few fun and interesting pieces. The 1/2 oz. skull and crossbones bar is cool, and the 1 oz. bar that is breakable into 1/4 oz sections is interesting. A few of these are commemorative and date back to the the 70s and 80s. $35.00 per ounce is about as low as you’ll see silver priced at and you usually need to purchase at least 100 ounces to get close to this price. Sold as a set of 8 pieces only for the estate price of $214.90 CAD (add 2% for credit card purchase).

2023 Austrian Philharmonic 1 oz. fine gold coins. Spot plus 3%. 912-00498 912-00499

While not too common around here Austrian Philharmonic 1 ounce gold coins are among the most popular bullion products produced. They are one of the world’s best selling gold coins purchased by collectors and gold investors alike. They have been around since 1989 when they debuted with a face value of 2,000 Austrian shillings. In 2002 the face value changed to €100 euros to reflect the adoption of the Eurozone currency. The design of the coin has remained constant since it was introduced, only the year of production changes annually. The coin depicts the pipe organ in the Vienna Musikverein’s Golden Hall. The back side of the coin shows instruments of the Vienna Philharmonic, including Vienna horn, bassoon, harp, and four violins centered on a cello. We are offering these pure gold coins for a low 3% premium over the spot price. In a bullish precious metal market, we feel this is the lowest premium anywhere. Both coins are 2023 issue and are in excellent condition. They measure 37mm diameter, 2mm thick, and weigh 1 troy ounce (31.103 grams). These coins are not subject to any form of sales tax. For credit card purchase please add 2%. Stock #912-00498, 912-00499.

2 x 1oz. .9999 fine gold bars Royal Canadian Mint. Spot + 4%. 912-00475 912-00474

  You should always be wary of purchasing sealed gold bars, regardless of the refiner, denomination, or size. Sealed bars are a favorite target for fraudsters. If you have the means of faking a decent gold bar you can certainly fake the packaging! For this reason, we never purchase bars without getting permission to cut them out of their sleeves and test them. We’ve seen sealed bars that turn out to be only gold plated once removed from their tamper-proof packaging. So don’t be alarmed that the packaging on these has been cut open with a box cutter knife; it was for your protection and ours. These RCM 1 ounce bars have the coveted four 9 purity the Royal Canadian Mint is known for. Purchasing bullion like this is considered a financial transaction, and therefore not subject to any form of sales tax. They are offered for just 4% on top of the current spot price, which can be found here. Act fast, these don’t usually last too long! Please add 2% for credit card purchase.

2.5 gram (2.43gr. actual weight) Pamp Suisse 999.9 gold wafer $240.00 CAD. 912-00572

This Pamp Suisse 2.5 gram bar must have had many different owners and likely changed hands multiple times. We say this because the condition is scratched and dinged. The previous buyers must have been skeptical about its authenticity because is displays evidence of numerous scratch tests on the corners. It was scratched enough that a measurable amount of gold is no longer there. This small bar should weigh 2.50 grams, the actual weight is 2.43+ grams. 0.07 grams isn’t much, but with gold priced at $2,890.00 CAD per ounce (March 6, 2024), 0.07 grams equals $6.50. When gold and silver coins were common circulation currency, it wasn’t unusual to see coins that had part of their edges removed or “clipped”. Dishonest types would remove a little precious metal and and pass the coin on for its full value. If enough people each took a tiny portion away, the coin eventually became obviously smaller than it should have been and was recycled. “Coin Clipping” was considered similar to counterfeiting and was sometimes punishable by death. Modern precious metal coins usually have fancy milling, reeding, or engraving that makes it obvious if the coin has been tampered with. Our Pamp Suisse bar is not currency and has no specific value attached, as its price fluctuates with gold value. We have priced this 2.43 gram bar at its current intrinsic value plus 5%. There is no sales tax on the purchase of precious metal in coin of bar form. This small piece of bullion is estate priced at $240.00 CAD. Stock #912-00572.

1 ounce 999.9 fine gold bar Valcambi Switzerland. Spot+4%. 912-00473

Manufactured and certified by Valcambi Switzerland. Valcambi are one of the largest metal refiners and thought to be the biggest refiner of gold in the world. Individually serial numbered, but no longer sealed in the factory plastic packaging. We’ve seen a few fake gold bars in very some convincing packaging lately. Unless we know exactly where the bullion is from, it is now our policy to remove it from its sealed packaging and test for purity. If you’re considering a bullion purchase we suggest you do the same, be very careful you know where it’s coming from. There are some very good looking fake bars out there. Bullion is the same as cash; you can’t buy a $100.00 bill for $50.00, and bullion like this doesn’t trade hands for much more or less than its actual intrinsic value. Be very wary if the bullion you’re thinking of buying is less than the “spot” price you can easily see online. The spot price is the current price in the marketplace at which a given asset such as a security, commodity, or currency can be bought or sold for immediate delivery. The best part about a fine bullion purchase like this is there is no sales tax. It’s a true investment that is looked upon by the Canadian government as a financial transaction and therefore not subject to any form of sales tax. The cost changes with the price of gold. You can check the current price of pure gold in Canadian dollars and most other international currencies at Kitco.com. This Swiss Valcambi 1 ounce fine gold bar is priced at current “spot price” plus 4%. We can accept payment in both CAD or USD. Please add an additional 2% for credit card purchase. Everyone should own some gold bullion as a small component of your investments. Bullion make a great gift for that difficult person to buy for who has everything. Stock #912-00473.

Rare Engelhard vintage 999.9 gold bar. Spot +20% (no sales tax). 912-00399

From bottle caps to fine art and vintage watches, people like to collect the rare and valuable. The world of precious metals and bullion is no exception, vintage gold and silver bars can command big premiums over the actual precious metal value, especially from well known refiners who are no longer around. This is a scarce Engelhard 1-ounce gold bar. Engelhard refineries were once one of the largest, if not the largest refiner of silver, gold, and platinum in the world. The company is credited for producing the world’s first production automotive catalytic converter. In 2006 the company was acquired by BASF Germany for 5 billion. Condition is everything with any collectible and this bar looks like it was stamped yesterday, when in fact we’d estimate its age at 40 to 50 years old. The bull logo used on these vintage bars is also something collectors of unusual Engelhard bullion love to see. The logo is a combination of ancient alchemical symbols. The circle with a dot in the centre represents the sun, and the masculine metal gold; the reversed C symbolizes the moon, and the more feminine precious metal silver. Early alchemists combined the two believing platinum was an amalgam of gold and platinum. Engelhard used this symbol on most of their Canadian bar production. Some more insight into the history and meaning of this logo can be seen here. We are not bullion dealers but we do see bullion and coins come in through our estate department from time to time. A rare bullion item like this is the exception to what we typically encounter. This scarce gold bar is priced at the intrinsic gold value plus 20% CAD. As this is a fine gold bullion product, it is not subject to any form of sales tax. Stock #912-00399.

10 ounce Scotia Bank fine gold bar. Spot + 3% (no sales tax). 912-00416.

I suppose it’s a good idea to always have some cash for one of those “just in case” situations, or saving it for a rainy day (but don’t save it too long). If you squirreled away  $5,000.00 in cash 20 years ago, congratulations, you still have $5,000.00 today; but now it only has the buying power of around $3,000.00 because inflation has depreciated its buying power. If you took the same $5,000.00 and bought 10 ounces of gold 20 years ago, it is now worth over $25,000.00 CAD today! Admittedly gold has had a good run over the past few decades but socking away cash for long periods of time has always resulted in big losses caused by inflation. When it comes to investing; if you don’t know what to do, it’s sometimes best to do nothing, but doing nothing with cash for long time periods has never been successful. If you own gold for long enough the appreciation curve flattens out, much the same as inflation does. Gold may not be the best investment every year but it has 1000s of years of history protecting the owner from the effects of inflation. Dynasties and cultures come and go every few centuries but the power of gold as a store of wealth has never failed. Our latest estate bullion product is this 10-ounce Scotia Bank 9999 fine gold bar from the 1980s. We showcase 1-ounce and fractional bars and coins on a regular basis, but this is only the 2nd 10-ounce bar that I can remember passing through. This bar is priced at only 3% above the “spot” price. Fine gold like this is not subject to sales tax. Buying something like this is best done by holding on to it for the long term. Cash isn’t a good thing to keep for an extended period of time, especially in an inflationary economy like what we are currently experiencing. This bar could be an excellent store of value to pass along to the next generation. First come, first serve for this one. For credit card purchases, please add 2%. Stock #912-00416.

10 oz. Royal Canadian Mint 9999 fine silver bar. Spot + 25% (no sales tax). 912-000408

Silver has shown some positive movement lately but you can still make a compelling case for the great value it still offers. 1 ounce of silver is 75 times less expensive than 1 ounce of gold. The historic relationship of gold vs. silver price is more like 40 to 1 and gold is only around 17 times more rare than silver. There have only been a few times in history that I’m aware of when the gold/silver ratio has been higher than right now. This tells us that gold is overpriced or that silver is underpriced. With all the chaos in the world my personal opinion 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 to pick up a bit. This 10 ounce bar of 9999 fine silver was made by The Royal Canadian Mint. The bar measures just 9.0cm x 5.2cm x 0.7mm but it is surprisingly hefty when you hold it in your hand. At over 2/3 of a pound it is quite substantial despite the small size. RCM bars are just about the most sought after brand in the business. Royal Canadian Mint products are universally acknowledged as among the purest in the world. Many fine silver bars are 99.9% pure; this RCM bar is 99.99% fine silver. We usually squirrel away this sort of thing away but at the moment it is taking up too much space in the safe. Who knows the next time we’ll sell off some of our silver hoard (don’t hold your breath). 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. The premiums are high at the moment for all precious metals as supply is quite scarce. This bar is offered at spot plus 25% (credit card purchases please add a 2% service fee). Stock #912-00408.

Finding physical silver bullion is always a challenge. We get far more requests for it and seldom have any to offer. Buy one or buy them both. They are a great way to get into the bullion market. The smooth-back Johnson Matthey bar is something collectors are always looking for. The SilverTowne is more for the investor, as this brand of bullion doesn’t have the collector following as the discontinued JM bars do. Most times we have no fine silver bullion available and when these are gone we don’t know when the next ones will come along and at what price. For the hard to buy for, these make fun gifts. Both bars are 99.9% pure silver and qualify for sale without additional sales tax. The Johnson Matthey bar is priced at $400.00 CAD (stock number 912-00401) and the SilverTowne bar is $350.00 CAD (stock number 912-00400. For credit card purchases please add 2%.

Good things come in threes, and Canadian gold is as good as it gets. Gold coins have been around for hundreds of years, but Canada was the first country to produce a gold coin of 99.9% purity in 1979. One of these coins is a first year example and the other two are dated 1980. Here’s your chance to pick one up at a competitive price (or pick up three). Our fine gold bullion offerings have been scarce lately as more people than ever are looking for alternative methods of storing value. Gold has been a convenient way to protect yourself against inflation. The price of gold may fluctuate over a short period of time, but over the long run, it has been a successful method to offset the effects of inflation. An ounce of gold today has pretty much the same buying power that it had 100 years ago. The same can’t be said for what a dollar could purchase back then compared to what it buys today. These coins can be purchased without any sales tax. They are being offered for just their intrinsic gold value (spot price) plus 5%. The spot price in CAD dollars can be seen by clicking here. Credit card payment is subject to an additional 2% fee. Stock numbers 912-00393, 912-00394, 912-00395.

1909 Indian head half eagle gold coin $610.00 CAD 445-00005

This half eagle gold coin from 1909 was one of only three instances the American mint depicted a First Nations person prior to the 2000s. The coin’s predecessor “Indian head” actually displayed lady liberty wearing a Plains headdress, a rather incendiary concept in modern times. The coin’s opposite face features the bald eagle clutching an olive branch and a bunch of arrows. If the “In God We Trust” seems oddly placed that is because it was added after the fact. Congress found out it had been omitted from the coin and chaos ensued, the mint had to rush to fit the motto and the Latin “E Pluribus Unum” into the only blank space left on the coin. Our 113 year old coin consists of 90% gold and is available for $610.00 CAD. Stock #445-00005.

Barrick gold is a Canadian gold producing company that was founded in 1983. They are one of the world’s largest gold producers with operations in 13 countries. We’re not sure why they produced this commemorative coin and what milestone they were celebrating. Perhaps, like everyone else they were just to be welcome in the new millennium. It’s been over 22 years since this medallion was struck, hopefully, someone from Barrick remembers these and is willing to share some details about it. We’ve never seen one before and there is little information to be found online. It is a piece of Canadian mining memorabilia that can be purchased without sales tax. In January of 2000 this 1/2 ounce medallion contained around $200.00 CAD worth of gold, today it’s more like $1,125.00 CAD. I wonder what the price will be in the next 22 years? This is our only one and we are not likely to see another. It is being sold for just the actual value of gold it contains plus 10% and no sales tax.

1979 proof sovereign coin (spot plus 10%). 912-00376

Most sovereigns that come through our estate department are simply recycled. They aren’t rare, and most are only worth their gold content. We thought we’d try to save this one from the melting pot fate because of the condition and its almost proof nature. The detail and definition of this example of better than any we’ve seen. Most have been handled and scratched up over the years or used in jewellery where they can become polished. This coin weighs 7.988 and contains a little under 1/4 ounce of fine gold. As sovereigns are only 91.667% pure they are not considered bullion and therefore subject to sales tax.

1oz. Engelhard Industries of Canada Ltd. 999 silver bar $50.00 CAD. 912-0000380

This is a scarce Engelhard Canadian 1-ounce fine silver bar. It is thought that Engelhard only produced around 4,000,000 1 ounce silver bars over a 20-year period with many being melted down during the 1979-1980 silver price spike. Compared to a fine silver bullion U.S. Eagle coin with over half a billion minted and climbing, these are indeed rare and uniquely serial numbered. Over the 20-year run, Engelhard produced several different designs, this example is one of the less common. Engelhard refineries were once one of the largest, if not the largest refiner of silver, gold, and platinum in the world. The company is also credited for producing the world’s first production automotive catalytic converter. This collectible silver bar is exempt from sales tax and estate priced at $50.00 CAD.

5 X 1/4oz. fine gold 9999 Canadian maple leaf coins, spot plus 10%. 912-00351

Gold has always been a compact form of portable wealth. During times of uncertainty, it is a comforting feeling knowing something like these gold coins can be tucked away inconspicuously as a small insurance policy when a more traditional form of currency isn’t available (ever try to spend Canadian cash outside of Canada). These 5 coins are much smaller than a nickel yet each one contains over 12,000 times the purchasing power of 5 cents. Royal Canadian Mint gold coins are among the world’s most recognized and sought after. They are the purest produced at 99.99% fine gold. This type of asset can’t be devalued through inflation as any cash you may have. For 1000s of years, gold has remained relatively stable when you compare what it can be traded for. The same certainly can’t be said for what a dollar buys today compared to what a dollar bought 10, 20, or 30 years ago. The ultimate form of wealth preservation in times of uncertainty are assets like these. They are economically important but they are also beautiful and just cool to own. Everyone should have a little gold as part of a cautionary component of an investment portfolio. These coins are all in perfect, sealed condition, untouched. They are all dated 2021 and have a face value of $10.00. They are being sold for only the intrinsic value of the gold they contain plus 10%. They are sales tax exempt as they as considered a financial transaction. Sold as a 5 piece set only, we will not break them up. Fractional size fine gold coins are not seen often around here and I don’t expect these will last long. Stock number 912-00351.

789 grams of 80% purity Canadian silver coins. Spot less 10%!!!! 913-00020

Everyone is looking for bullion these days. Fine gold and especially fine silver is selling for waaaaay over the actual precious metal value. Canadian 99.99% pure 1-ounce maple leaf coins are currently seeing premiums of around 25-30% above the actual silver value. But what about non-pure silver coins like these? Most Canadian circulation silver coins from the mid 20th century are composed of 80% and 20% copper. Because most coins like this are quite common, they are not numismatically important to collectors; and because they are subject to sales tax they can be more difficult to sell as investments for non-collectors. It is also illegal for anyone to melt and recycle the silver from Canadian coins. So we need to be a little more creative when it comes to finding homes for our non-bullion silver Canadian coins. Here is a small collection that should appeal to anyone looking to acquire some silver at a rarely seen price. We are offering this collection of coins weighing 789 grams for 10% less than the actual silver value they contain. The 5 x $1.00, 57 x $0.50, 1 x $0.25, and 1 x $0.10 coins have a face value of $33.85 and contain $20.31 ounces of fine silver. The silver content in Canadian coins of this era can easily be calculated by knowing the total face value. Each $1.00 of face value contains 0.6 ounces of pure silver. It doesn’t matter if it’s a single one-dollar coin or ten dimes; any combination adding up to one dollar contains 0.6 ounces of fine silver. This collection of 64 coins has a total face value of $33.85; therefore it contains 20.31 ounces of fine silver. Coin shops and bullion dealers usually sell these types of coins for 10 to 25% above the silver value plus sales tax. This collection is offered for 10% LESS than the actual silver value, plus sales tax. At the close of markets yesterday (March 11, 2022), 1 ounce of fine silver was valued at $33.06 CAD, resulting in our asking price of $604.30 CAD plus sales tax. If you’d like the see the current “spot price” of silver, click here. If you are interested in these, stop by, give us a call at 705 728 3343, or contact us by email. I don’t imagine these will be available for long. Stock number 913-00020.

1oz. .9999 fine gold bar Royal Canadian Mint. Spot + 4% (no sales tax).

You should always be wary of purchasing sealed gold bars, regardless of the refiner, denomination, or size. Sealed bars are a favorite target for fraudsters. If you have the means of faking a gold bar you can certainly fake the packaging! For this reason, we never purchase bars without getting permission to cut them out of their sleeves and test them. We’ve seen sealed bars that turn out to be only gold plated once removed from their tamper-proof packaging. So don’t be alarmed that this bar’s packaging has been cut open with a box cutter knife, it was for your protection and ours. This RCM 1 ounce bar has the coveted four 9 purity the Royal Canadian Mint is known for. Purchasing bullion like this is considered a financial transaction, and therefore not subject to any form of sales tax. It is offered for just 4% on top of the current spot price, which can be found here. Act fast, these never last long! Stock #912-00171.

Vintage Canadian 5oz. 999 fine silver Engelhard poured bar $500.00 CAD. e14437

From bottle caps to fine art and vintage watches, people like to collect the rare and valuable. The world of precious metals and bullion are no exception, early and vintage hand-poured bars command big premiums over the actual precious metal value. This is a scarce Engelhard Canadian poured 5-ounce fine silver bar. The soft rounded edges and unique imperfections to every example keep collectors on the lookout. Engelhard refineries were once one of the largest, if not the largest refiner of silver, gold, and platinum in the world. The company is also credited for producing the world’s first production automotive catalytic converter. The bull logo used on this vintage 5 oz. bar is a combination of ancient alchemical symbols. The circle with a dot in the centre represents the sun, and the masculine metal gold; the reversed C symbolizes the moon, and the more feminine precious metal silver. Early alchemists combined the two believing platinum was an amalgam of gold and platinum. Engelhard used this symbol on most of their Canadian silver bar production. We don’t really consider ourselves precious metal dealers but we do see bullion and coins come in through our estate department on a regular basis. Unusual poured bars like this are the rare exception. This scarce Canadian 5 ounce bar is priced at $500.00 CAD. As this is a fine silver bullion product, it is not subject to any form of sales tax.

3.5gr. 90% pure gold commemorative Volkswagen medallion $365.00 CAD. 913-00016

The car that put Germany back on the map after the second world war was the Volkswagen Beetle. In just 16 years since production began, 5 million had been manufactured, making it by far the most successful automobile to date. More than 21 million examples were eventually produced over the production run that lasted until the final copy rolled off an assembly line in 2003 in Mexico. This commemorative medallion was minted in 1961 as recognition of the 5 millionth Beetle produced. We don’t know how many of these medallions were produced, who they were presented to and why. This one was given to a former Canadian Volkswagen executive and stayed in his possession until he passed away. It is in excellent unpolished condition and displays minor evidence of handling. It measures 20.2mm in diameter, weighs 3.5 grams, and is struck from 900 gold (90% pure). For Volkswagen Beetle enthusiasts or collectors this rare medallion would make a great gift. This medallion is estate priced at $375.00 CAD. Stock #913-00016.

10 oz. 9999 Canadian maple leaf fine silver 2017 coin. Spot + 25%. e14390

1-ounce Canadian maple leaf coins are scarce these days. Even among dedicated bullion dealers, they can be hard to find and often out of stock. Purchase premiums over the basic silver content for 1-ounce examples are currently in the 25 to 30% range for physical products at most dealers. If you’re looking for anything unusual in a larger size, forget about it. For us too, coming across something like this untouched 10 oz. 2017 Canadian maple leaf $50.00 9999 fine silver coin is a rare event. I’m glad that that bullion sales are only a tiny portion of our business. We love the uncommon items that come in from time to time. Royal Canadian Mint products are some of the most sought-after in the world. They are highly regarded for their quality and purity. Many refiners and mints produce bullion with 99.9% purity, RCM takes things to another decimal place at 99.99%. They also occasionally incorporate some special mint marks to help against counterfeiting. There is an anti-counterfeiting mark on this coin; a tiny raised 17 sits in a debossed polished maple leaf, within a raised maple leaf. The proof finish of this coin is impeccable. This perfect condition 10 oz. $50.00 fine silver coin is sales tax exempt and estate priced only its intrinsic value plus 25%. Stock #e14390.

1967 Canadian Centennial gold coins 0.5288oz. each. Spot -3% e14419-e14428

Canada’s 100th birthday was a big deal. Commemorative merchandise was everywhere. From T-shirts to ashtrays, Canada’s Centennial logo could be spotted on almost anything. The 11 equilateral triangles symbolized the 10 provinces and The Northwest Territories. The Royal Canadian Mint got into the spirit too, although in a less colourful more subdued manner. Every piece of currency was given a unique commemorative treatment for 1967. This was also the last year Canada made all the dimes, quarters, 50 cent pieces, and silver dollars from silver (80% pure). If you happen to find a ’67 or older silver coin in your change, hang on to it as it is worth close to 18 times its face value in silver. Everyone has seen the silver 1967 commemorative silver coins before but you may not have seen Canada’s only commemorative $20.00 gold coin before. While not rare by any means they aren’t seen every day around here. The Canadian mint struck 337,688 examples, all in proof quality. They are unique in several respects; they are an odd weight of 18.2733 grams or 0.5875 ounces and contain 0.5288 ounces of actual fine gold along with some copper alloy. I have no idea why they didn’t make it a logical weight like 1/2 oz. or 25 grams. Most commemorative Canadian gold coins are also made from either 14 or 22 karat, not the 1967 Centennial $20.00 though, it’s karat quality works out to 21.6 karat or 90% pure, so I guess it sort of makes sense. While the Canadian mint doesn’t have a problem with us recycling Canadian silver coins as long as we report how many or being recycled, it is illegal for us to melt, recycle or deface Canadian gold coins. That puts us in a difficult position of only being able to resell these as we can’t melt them and turn them into jewellery items. Since they do not meet the standards of purity to be considered bullion, they are also subject to applicable sales tax. As such we are offering these for 3% less than the actual value of fine gold they contain (the copper alloy is free). That’s right, we are selling these coins for less than their actual scrap value. We have some other NON-bullion Canadian commemorative gold coins offered for the same discount. You can buy one or buy our entire inventory of NON bullion Canadian coins at the same price of actual gold value less 3%. This offer is for NON credit card purchases only, for credit card payments please add a 2% service fee. Stock numbers e14419-e14420.

It doesn’t matter if we feel silver is too cheap right now, sometimes it just gets in the way and we need to free up a bit of room. We are reluctantly offering this bar because so many people asking us if we have any silver bullion and our online bullion offerings have been few and far between lately.

The silver/gold ratio has varied from under 15:1 to around 100:1 (only once before). The very long-term average is around 50 to 1.

Physical gold and silver 999 bullion is very scarce right now, we get way more calls for it than we can supply.

The other side of the coin depicts 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.

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

2 X 1/2 oz. 2020 U.S. half eagle gold coins 22kt. Spot plus zero (no premium). e14250 e14251

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. “Everyone should own a bit of gold”. Not just because it’s beautiful to look at and it feels great between your fingers, but 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 world’s oldest companies can’t compete with the 5000-year history that gold has as an object of considerable value. The price 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 commodities you may need. You can’t just print more gold. It’s a good way to offset the effects of a weakening dollar and inflation. We don’t see many US coins around here and are happy to offer these tw0 2020 22 karat U.S. $25.00 coin that contains 1/2 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. Both are in perfect condition showing great detail, appearing untouched. This is high karat gold and is very soft, so handle with care. The price of this coin changes every day with the price of gold. We are pricing it at the special rate of “spot” price of gold plus nothing. That’s correct these two coins and only these are being sold for only the intrinsic value of the gold they contain, and you get the trace amount of silver and copper alloy for free.  You can check the current price of gold anytime at Kitco. We can accept payment in both US and Canadian dollars. An additional 2% service charge will be added for credit card payment. These coins are subject to sales tax in Canada. Stock #e14250 & e14251.

19.3 grams raw nugget gold spot plus 10%. e12331

If you’ve seen the terribly violent (to be fair it was directed by the Coen brothers) Netflix original Ballad of Buster Scruggs you’ll have a pretty clear understanding of what is involved in gold prospecting. For modern small stake prospectors, the techniques are still very similar today as they were during the gold rush. Occasionally one of those prospectors comes to town from their wild west lifestyle and turns in some gold in exchange for a more conventional currency. The smaller nuggets and flakes were alluvial deposits panned out of a river. The largest would likely have been dug up as it doesn’t have the river rolled finish of the others. They are up for sale as a 19.3 gram (0.62 ounces) package only, we will not sell just the big nugget alone. For sale at the spot price for gold plus 10%. You can check the current spot price market value of gold in Canadian Dollars here. Stock number e12331.

1999 U.S. $25 GOLD COIN CONTAINING 1/2 OZ. FINE GOLD. SPOT + 5%. E13802

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. “Everyone should own a bit of gold”. Not just because it’s beautiful to look at and it feels great between your fingers, but 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 world’s oldest companies can’t compete with the 5000 year history that gold has as an object of considerable value. The price 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 commodities you may need. You can’t just print more gold. It’s a good way to offset the effects of a weakening dollar and inflation. We don’t see many US coins around here and are happy to offer this 1999 22 karat U.S. $25.00 coin that contains 1/2 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. In perfect condition showing great detail, appearing untouched in its protective foam lined plastic case. This is high karat gold and is very soft so handle with care. The price of this coin changes every day with the price of gold. We are pricing it at the “spot” price of gold plus 5%. You can check the current price of gold anytime at Kitco. We can accept payment in both US and Canadian dollars. An additional 2% service charge will be added for credit card payment. Stock #e13802.

1892 U.S. $10.00 gold coin 10% over melt price. e12804

Close to 800,000 of these coins were produced by the United States mint so they’re not especially rare but after 127 years many were lost or melted down. We don’t see them very often and it’s always a treat to have something in stock that’s been around for so many generations. The coin itself is 90% pure gold and coins 0.483 oz. of actual fine gold. We are selling the coin for just 10% over the value of just its gold content. Stock #e12804.

18 x 1oz. 999 fine silver “American Eagle, Walking Liberty” coins. $40.00 each (no sales tax).

U.S. coins are scarce around here and they don’t usually last very long. We’ve already sold a bunch of these before they even made it to our website. We’re down to just 18 left. These are perfect examples untouched except for these photos. They were presented to the previous owner as a part of a presentation gift from their employer in 1991. 29 years later they’ve come out from a drawer and we are offering them for $40.00 each. Not a rare coin but definitely difficult to find in this condition. They are all still in their original protective plastic containers. Some are showing a little oxidation around the edges as one would expect after sitting untouched for close to 3 decades. The 99.9% purity means they are considered fine bullion and therefore considered a “financial transaction” by the Canadian government and not subject to any form of sales tax. Buy them for the investment or buy them for their beauty. No one knows how to use powerful imagery for subject matter on coins like the Americans. It’s hard not to be inspired when you look at these. Only 18 left and estate priced at $40.00 CAD each.

4 x 10oz. 999 silver bars Silvertowne & RCM. Spot + 10% (20 oz. minimum purchase). e13779

It doesn’t matter if we feel silver is cheap right now, sometimes it just gets in the way and we need to free up a bit of room. As I’m writing this silver is trading 77 times less than gold. This ratio is very high. Now may be the time to invest in a little silver bullion. The silver/gold ratio has varied from under 15:1 to around 100:1 (only once before). The very long term average is around 50 to 1. Not only do these bars have intrinsic commodity value they are collectible and beautiful to look at. The 10 bars are still factory sealed in untouched condition. We have 3 x 10 oz. from Silvertowne Bullion Dealers, Winchester Indiana and 1 x 10 oz. from the Royal Canadian Mint. We are selling them at what we feel is the lowest price anywhere. Spot price plus just 10% and no tax.

1979 1oz. fine gold Canadian Maple Leaf 999 coin, spot plus 4%. e13801

Beggars can’t be choosers. We’re getting many more requests for gold and silver bullion than we’re able to satisfy. So when this somewhat beat up 999 Canadian Maple was offered to us we didn’t hesitate to buy it. Since they’re not rare or collectible their value isn’t determined by condition. They are simply an easy way for the average person to invest in gold bullion. In 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 the world is a much more complicated place than it was the last time gold really 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. Stock #e9339.

100 oz. Liberty mint .999 fine silver rounds spot plus 15% (25 oz. minimum purchase) E13595

The back of these 999 fine silver medalions says it all; “No state shall… make any thing but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts”. This quote was taken from the U.S. Constitution Article 1 section 10. Paper currency, cheques, e-Transfers, Bitcoin, credit cards or any other form of notional payment of debt is unacceptable is the past. There was a time when bullion was the only way to measure the value of goods, services or pay off a debt. Today most people have faith the paper money we use to buy things will be accepted as payment for debt; or that the numbers shown on our bank statements truely display the value of your money. Money is simply a concept, a simple promisory note backed by a government who themselves are under incredible amounts of debt. Gold and silver have been the way people have measured value for thousands of years. Eveyone should hold some bullion to protect themselves from the effects of inflation. We seldom have physical silver bullion available for delivery and we are not alone. Obtaining actual gold and silver bullion in person is becoming more difficult all the time and those who have it make the rules. Generic silver bullion is trading hands right now for 20-25% over spot price no matter the brand or condition. We are usually not sellers of silver but occasionally we like to offer our clients the opportunity to purchase some when it becomes available through our estate department. We are offering these .999 fine silver medallions at spot price plus 15%. Most of the major bullion traders have little or no 1-ounce wafers, coins, or medallions for sale, and when they do the price is close to 25% above spot. Even when buying single large 100-ounce bars the spot premiums are close to 20%. Bullion is not our main business, so we are happy to pass along a smaller premium compared to the typical bullion trading companies. If you have been looking for silver bullion you know how hard it is to find. This is your chance to pick some up for a better price than the typical sources. They are being sold on a first come first serve basis. To see the current spot price for silver in Canadian dollars click here. These 1-ounce fine silver medallions each come in their original protective tubes. We are selling them in minimum quantities of 25 with only 100 in total available.

Bullion sale!!!!!! SPOT PLUS JUST 2% CAD or 1% for payment in USD. All in stock 999 bars & coins.

We’re having a bullion sale. With the recent increase in gold prices we’ve been acquiring more of these fine gold Canadian Maple leaf coins than we need. Should we hold them and wait for gold prices to rise even more or should we sell them now with gold priced at $1,615.00 USD or $2,295 per ounce Canadian. Although gold is priced at close to an all time high in Canadian terms it still needs to go up close to 20% to match its record high in U.S. dollars. With the state of world politics and international economic conditions you can make a pretty good case for further gold appreciation. You could buy a really nice used car for the price of these gold coins but we all know what sort of investment a used car is. Ten years ago that car cost $40,000.00, today it’s worth $16,000.00 (if you’re lucky), ten years from now it’s worth a couple hundred bucks at the scrap yard. Today these 10 coins or bars will cost you $23,400.00 CAD ($16,475.00 USD). Ten years ago they would have cost about $11,500.00 CAD. 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. 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 not subject to any form of sales tax. The cost for each coin 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 sale priced at current “spot price” plus only 1% for USD or plus 2% in Canadian dollars. We accept payment in both CAD or USD. For credit card purchases please add 2%. All 10 coins are in very good condition and range in date from 1979 to 2016. 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. Even our smaller fractional sizes are priced at spot plus 2%. Smaller coins always cost more compared to full 1 ounce examples but not during this sale. All in stock Canadian Maple Leaf fine gold bullion coins and bars (various brands) are just spot plus 2%.

Temporarily sold out.

Should we hold them and wait for gold prices to rise even more or should we sell them now with gold priced at $1,960.00 USD or $2,618.00 per ounce Canadian. Gold is priced at all time highs in both Canadian and U.S. dollars. Buying physical gold bullion at only 4% over its spot price is almost impossible. We know of no bullion supplier with a price this low. With the state of world politics and international economic conditions you can make a fairly strong case for further gold appreciation.

Ten years ago, that car cost $70,000.00, today it is worth $25,000.00 (if you’re lucky), ten years from now it’s worth a couple hundred bucks at the scrap yard. Today these 10 bars will cost you $27,200.00 CAD ($20,400.00 USD). Ten years ago, they would have cost about $12,000.00 CAD. Who knows what they’ll be worth in another 10 years, but I imagine they’ll be worth a whole lot more than that rust bucket you thought was pretty cool.

The 100 Greatest Masterpieces in sterling silver 208 oz. full set with display box $6,500.00 CAD. e13581

Though most people see silver bullion simply as an investment, there is no reason you can’t also appreciate its inherent beauty. “The 100 Greatest Masterpieces” sterling silver coin set exemplifies this beauty, with each coin displaying one of 100 famous works of art from throughout history. At over 2 ounces per coin, this set contains over 208 ounces of sterling silver alone. The Franklin Mint prepared these coins with an intricately sculpted interpretation of the art pieces ranging from the statue of David to the Mona Lisa, with the title of the piece, name of the artist, and date on the reverse. Along with each the coins are a short description of their history in an accompanying canvas bound booklet. Displayed in a mahogany case, the previous owner has taken tremendous care of the coins since they were minted in 1974. It’s rare to see such a full collection so well taken care of, whether as a collectable or an investment, these coins are a work of art in and of themselves.

RARE 99999 fine gold Canadian flower coins spot + 2% CAD or 1% for USD payment (NO TAX!!!). e13255-e13261

The Royal Canadian mint is arguably the finest in the world. Investors and collectors trust RCM for exceptional quality and worldwide acceptance when both buying and selling. They were the first to manufacture a coin of 99.9% purity. They raised the bar in 1983 to 99.99%. Occasionally they produce special series with an incredible “5 9s” 99.999% purity. Coins of this quality rarely show up in our estate department and usually sell for a significant premium. Five 9s coins are far more rare and used mostly for low mintage and commemorative editions. The 7 coins are from the Canadian flower series, with examples dating from 2000 to 2006. Each coin depicts a different native Canadian flower: Dogwood, Mayflower, Wild Rose, Trillium, Firewood, Red Lily and the Iris. These are very rare coins you’re not likely to encounter again. Each example comes from a mintage of fewer than 2000 on average. As with all forms of bullion, these coins can be purchased exempt of sales tax. The Canada Revenue Agency looks upon the sale of bullion as a financial transaction therefor not subject to sales tax. All 7 coins are legal Canadian tender and have a face value of $350.00. They are no longer in proof condition as they’ve been handled and have come into contact with other objects causing light surface scratches. If you have been investing in gold over the past few years you’ve seen a significant return. The cost of gold has appreciated over 85% over the last ten years. While supplies last we are selling these coins at only 2% over the value of the gold they contain. If you can pay us in U.S. dollars we’ll only charge 1% over the actual gold value of each coin. These coins are somewhat unusual in the fact they don’t weigh exactly 1 ounce. We have 4 coins weighing 1.22 oz. (38 grams) and 3 weighing 1.12 oz. (35 grams). Buy one or buy them all. We don’t know of a bullion supplier who can match our price. Everyone should own some gold as a way of protecting against the effects of inflation and a depreciating currency. These are the first examples of this series of coins we’ve ever had; when they’re gone, they gone. For credit card payment please add a 2% service fee. Stock numbers e13255 through e13261.

Chinese panda 999 fine gold coins 1/20 & 1/4oz. spot plus 2% no HST.

Most gold coins are alloyed with other metals making them more durable and long lasting once they get into general circulation. That’s fine but gold coins practically never go into circulation for face value. With today’s gold price of around $1,500.00 USD per ounce, the face of gold coins is often 25 times less than what they’re worth in gold content. Any gold coin alloyed down to be less than pure is subject to sales tax when purchased in Canada. 99.9% pure gold coins like these Chinese pandas are actually quite uncommon. Only a handful of countries produce coins of such quality and these also never go into general circulation for their face value. Bullion coins like these can legally be purchased in Canada tax free, no sales tax is added when purchased. The Canada revenue agency looks upon the sale of fine gold and other precious metals as a financial transaction therefor not subject to sales tax. We have a limited quantity of these 1/20 and 1/4 ounce 999 Chinese panda gold coins. They are for sale for only the intrinsic value of the gold they contain plus 4% and no sales tax. Buy one, two or buy them all. These don’t come in very often and never in any significant quantity. At current gold pricing of approximately $2,000.00 per ounce Canadian these coins are selling for $104.00 and $520.00.00 each plus 4%. They’re are very cute with several different depictions of the lovable panda. For credit card purchases please add an additional 2% service fee. Each coin is estate priced at just the gold value plus 2%.

It’s about the same size as a Canadian nickle but its 9655 times more valuable as I type this sentence with gold being priced at $1931.00 per ounce Canadian. The Chinese Panada has a gold content of 99.99%, making it one of the world’s most pure and highly refined. It’s as pure as any Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin except for a few 99.999% special mintage coins. The Panda is a fairly scarce coin in Canada, this is only the second or third I remember seeing in the 1/4 ounce size.

9995 Platinum 1 ounce Canadian maple leaf coin. Spot plus 10% e12527

This is only the second bullion platinum Canadian Maple Leaf coin we’ve ever been fortunate enough to post on our website. Ten years after Canada introduced the world’s first 999 pure gold coin, the Royal Canadian Mint introduced it’s 9995 one ounce platinum coin in 1988. The platinum coins are far more rare compared to the gold versions. Often these platinum coins are minted in numbers lower than 20,000 per year compared to 1,000,000 for the gold coins. None were produced from 2000 to 2008. Platinum is far more rare than gold and silver, it’s also more dense. Compared to a 1 ounce pure silver coin the 1 ounce platinum coin occupies far less space. Historically speaking platinum has been much more expensive than gold (sometimes double the price). For the last few years platinum has been trading for a big discount relative to gold. This coin is a true rarity for us, one we’re not likely to encounter again for some time. We recycle 1000s of ounces of silver and gold every year adding far more precious metal back into the system than we use as finished jewellery. In more than 6 decades of precious metal recycling we’ve only refined our scrap platinum bits and pieces once. Only once in over 60 years have we had enough of this rare grey/white metal to refine. We have many clients who like to purchase gold and silver bullion, but for the real precious metal connoisseur there is nothing like platinum. First come first serve for this one. Priced at spot platinum price plus 10% and no sales tax. For an up to the minute price of platinum click here and scroll down a bit. Please add 2% service fee for credit card  purchases.

99999 fine gold Canadian coin 1 oz. Elk 2017 spot plus 5% e12517

Leave it the the Canadian mint to do it again. In 1979 the world’s first 99.9% pure gold coin was produced by them. In 1982 they improved the purity to 99.99%, also a first for the world. Once again in 1998 they raised the bar with an unheard of purity level of 99.999% for special commemorative issues. We are fortunate at Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers to see the 999 and 9999 quite regularly but this “5 nines” example is a first for us. Checking out the Royal Canadian Mint website shows this coin was limited to a production of only 400. Since 2014 the mint hasn’t released regular 9999 coin production numbers but considering previous years there could be close to one million of those in circulation. Considering its rarity this coin is an absolute bargain priced at only the current value of gold plus 5% and NO SALES TAX. We accept payment in both U.S. and Canadian dollars. For current pricing of gold in CAD click here. First come first serve, we only have this one of these super rare 99999 gold coins in stock and we’ve never had another.

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 136 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.

10 x 10oz. Johnson Matthey fine silver 999 bars. Spot + 10% NO HST. e12546

It doesn’t matter that we feel silver is too cheap right now, sometimes it just gets in the way and we need to free up a bit of room. As I’m writing this silver is trading close to 88 times less than gold. This ratio is pushing its all time high; now may be the time to invest in a little silver bullion. The silver/gold ratio has varied from under 15:1 to around 100:1 (only once before). The very long term average is around 50 to 1. Not only do these bars have intrinsic commodity value they are collectible as Johnson Matthey are no longer in the precious metals refining business after more than 150 years. Gold and silver collectors pay significant premiums for all JM products. These 10 bars are still factory sealed in untouched condition. They are individual serial numbers all in sequence (2 groups of 2 and 1 group of 6). We are selling them at what we feel is the lowest price anywhere. Spot price plus just 10% and no tax. For the current price of silver click here and scroll down a bit then add 10% to calculate your price. NO sales tax of any kind will be added.

1 oz. 9999 fine gold U.S. Buffalo coin. Spot plus 4% NO sales tax. e12239

We’ve said it before and we’ll continue to say it. “Everyone should own some gold”, not just because it’s beautiful to look at and feels great between your fingers, but because it might be a good investment too. Investing in the stock market is a key element for many investment portfolios, but one could 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. The price of gold is always changing against what it is typically compared to (paper currency). It has always been welcomed for trade in most cultures for any other commodity you may need. The value can’t be diluted by printing more of it. It’s a good way to offset the affects of a weakening dollar and inflation. We seldom see US coins around here and are happy to offer this 2013 fine gold 9999 U.S. $50.00 Buffalo coin. The coin contains exactly 1 troy ounce of the precious yellow metal. The obverse side of the coin depicts the strong image of a native America. From what we understand it was created by blending the likeness of three chiefs: Iron Tail (Lakota), Two Moons (Cheyenne) and John Big Tree (Seneca). A beautiful likeness of the American Buffalo shows on the obverse side with great attention to detail. The Buffalo round was the first fine gold U.S. bullion coin and debuted in 2006. These coins are far more rare than the Canadian Maple Leaf gold bullion coin that came out in 1979. Introduced in 2006, the U.S. mint release an average of less than 200,000 examples per year. Our latest estate bullion coin is dated 2013 and is in excellent condition showing little evidence of rough handling. There is no sales tax on the sale of precious metals including this coin. Revenue Canada looks upon fine gold and other bullion sales as financial transactions therefore not subject to any form of sales tax  Everyone should own some bullion as security against the effects inflation has on your cash. This is a 99.99% pure gold coin and is very soft, so handle with care. If you happen to drop it on a hard surface it WILL dent. The price of this coin changes everyday with the price of gold. We are pricing it at the “spot” price of gold plus 4%. You can check the current price of gold anytime at Kitco. We can accept payment in both US and Canadian dollars.

2012 year of the Dragon 9999 fine gold 1 oz. bars. Spot + 2% e12134-e12138

In 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. In 1979 China really wasn’t a significant component in the world economy, today they are the 2nd largest economy and catching up to the USA. The Chinese economy is almost 3 times as large as the number 3 economy. China is now a big deal and China also loves gold. These 2012 year of the dragon fine gold 9999 1 ounce bars are priced at the current price of gold plus 2%. 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 effects of inflation when it takes more and more paper money to buy what you need. These commemorative bars are the first we’ve had of such a design. We may never have this design come in again. Stock #e12134-e12138.

2 x 100oz. Royal Canadian Mint 9999 fine silver bars $2,100.00 CAD each (no tax). e12096

Silver bullion is so cheap right now. 1 ounce of silver is 85 times less expensive than 1 ounce of gold. The historic relationship of gold vs. silver price is more like 40 to 1 and gold is only around 17 times more rare than silver. There have only been 2 other times in history that I’m aware of when the gold/silver ratio has been higher than right now. This tells us that gold is overpriced or that silver is underpriced. With all the chaos in the world my personal opinion 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. These two 100 ounce bars of 999 fine silver were made by The Royal Canadian Mint. The bars measure just 18.4cm  x 8.1cm x 2.1cm but  are surprisingly hefty when you hold them in you hand. They each weigh just a little under 7 pounds. RCM bars are about the most sought after brand in the business. The Royal Canadian Mint’s products are universally acknowledged as among the most pure in the world. Many fine silver bars are 99.9% pure; these RCM bars are 99.99% fine silver. We usually squirrel away these but at the moment they are taking up too much room in the safe. Who knows the next time we’ll sell off some of our silver hoard (don’t hold your breath). 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 the few 100 ounce bars we are selling at the moment.

2 x 1 oz. 9999 fine gold 1989 Canadian Maple leaf coins (1 rare proof example) spot + 4%. e12179

Canada introduced the world’s first 999 fine gold coin in 1979. Before this every other currency gold coin in the world was alloyed with different metals making them more durable and longer lasting. No one is ever going to use these $50.00 face value 1 ounce coins as basic currency (considering they contain $1,700.00 CAD worth of gold) so making them durable wasn’t a concern for the Royal Canadian Mint. The Canadian mint is respected world wide for producing some of the most trusted and pure gold/silver bullion available. In 1983 the mint raised the bar introducing 9999 purity gold coins. Today they are able to produce special editions of the world’s first 99999 gold coins. These two 1989 coins are somewhat remarkable because they represent the 10th anniversary of production. One is from the standard production of 856,000 specimens issued. The other is a rare “proof” example; one of just 17,781 produced. The proof coin is of the highest quality possible. It shows greater detail, higher relief, better contrast and superior finish. These coins are produced with the high end collector in mind and not intended for the bullion investor. Unfortunately this proof has been handled and has been in contact with other coins. As such it is showing some scuffs, scratches and dings but it is still easily distinguished from the regular production coin on the left side. Both of these coins are still in very good condition and both are being sold for only their intrinsic gold value (spot price) plus 4% with NO sales tax added and no premium for the proof example. Canada Revenue Agency looks upon the purchase of fine bullion coins as a financial transaction therefore not subject to sales 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 promissory note guaranteed by the government that issued it. 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. Sold as a set only, we not not sell just the proof.

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.

1 oz. fine gold bar spot price plus 2% no HST. e11109

e7604 fine gold 1oz TD barIt’s been a while since the last 999.9 fine gold bar was offered. Gold has come off its highs of close to $1900.00 Canadian dollars.

Our stock is always changing with various types of bars, sometimes they’re private label examples from a large bank or occasionally we get beautiful Pamp Suisse examples still in their sealed packaging.  There is something very special about pure gold, the look, the feel, and the density are easy to fall in love with. Once you’ve held some you realize what all the fuss is about. This untouched example is estate priced at spot price of gold plus 2%. No waiting and no extra shipping fees.

Rare vintage 2 ounce gold bar Engelhard RARE poured 999.0 loaf. e8969

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. Estate priced at actual gold value plus 20% and no sales tax. Stock #e8969.

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 two 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.

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.

1 oz. 999 fine gold Canadian gold coin 1oz. Spot plus 4%

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.

1999 US $50.00 gold coin containing 1oz. of fine gold. Spot plus 4%.

e9233 US 1oz gold coin $50.00We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. “Everyone should own some gold”. 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.

1904 $20.00 U.S. gold coin $1,600.00 CAD.

 

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. Estate priced at $1600.00. Stock #e7932.e7932.1 U.S. $20 gold coin

1995 Canadian fine gold 9999 coin. Spot plus 4% and NO TAX.

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. Investing in the stock market is a key element to many investment portfolios, but one could argue holding a little gold is also important. After all, even the oldest companies can’t compete with the 5000 year history of gold 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 any culture 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. When purchasing precious metal of this purity it has the added benefit of being tax exempt. No provincial or federal Canadian tax will be added. Coins like this come in far less often than gold bars and wafers. So if you would like this one, come in ASAP. Sold at the current spot price for gold plus 4%. An up to the minute gold price can be seen here. Stock #e8968.e8968.1 Canadian fine gold $50.00 coin

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

1oz. 999 gold CDN maple leaf coin. Gold price +4% (no HST)

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
