3 x 1oz. 999 fine gold Canadian maple leaf coins, spot + 5% (no sales tax). 912-00393,4,5.

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.

4 x 1 ounce 999 Asahi fine silver round medallions. Spot plus 20% (no sales tax).

Buy it when you have the opportunity because physical silver bullion is scarce and the premiums are high. While 4 ounces isn’t much, these are a fun way to get into the silver market without spending much. These Asahi rounds are all in excellent condition except one has had a saw blade cut into its edge. We just noticed the tiny groove after we took this picture. The medallion on the bottom right has the saw mark but it still weighs over an ounce at 1.009 oz. Obviously, someone, at some point didn’t trust it and cut into it to see what was inside. These are being sold as a set of four only, at spot plus 20% and no sales tax. For credit card purchases please add 2%. Stock #912-00396.

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

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

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.

1/2 ounce fine gold commemorative coin Barrick Gold. Spot + 10% (no sales tax). 912-00385

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. The current gold price in Canadian dollars can be seen here. Stock #912-00385.

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. This coin comes in a protective plastic container and is being sold for only the intrinsic value of the gold it contains plus 10% and applicable sales tax. Stock number 912-00376

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. Stock #912-00380.

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.

Okay gold bugs, here’s your chance to pick up some fraction bullion. Finding gold bullion in sizes smaller than 1 ounce has always been difficult, but over the last year or two, it has really become scarce. These four Johnson Matthey bars have been tab set into 14 karat yellow gold frames each weighing 0.5 grams. Johnson Matthey sold their refining business to Asahi Holdings Inc. from Japan in 2015, making these extinct bars a bullion collectible. Gold bullion like this can be sold tax free, no sales tax will be calculated on the fine gold 5-gram portion. Only the $42.00 frames are taxable.

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.

You never know what interesting tax-free bullion we may have available.

Today the Royal Canadian Mint produces the occasional special coin to an incredible 99.999% purity (the world’s most pure). This coin has been sealed and appears untouched. The fine scratches and specs are on the plastic container, not the coin. Buying silver or gold bullion is considered a financial transaction and 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%.

10oz. 999 Scotia Bank fine silver bar. Spot plus 15%. e14405

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. As I’m writing this silver is trading 77 times less than gold. This ratio is very high. Now might 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 does this bar have intrinsic commodity value, but they are also collectible, beautiful to look at, and the density when you hold it is something that must be experienced. Scotia Bank is one of Canada’s biggest bullion dealers and their bars are respected worldwide. We are selling this bar at what we feel is the lowest price anywhere. Spot price plus just 15% and no tax. For the current price of silver click here and scroll down a bit then add 15% to calculate your price. NO sales tax of any kind will be added.

5gr. Johnson Matthey 9999 gold bar (spot + 10%), 0.57gr. 14kt. frame $53.00 extra. e14503

Finding smaller amounts of gold bullion in fractions of ounce weights is more difficult than ever. Most major bullion suppliers have none available for delivery, and if they do expect to pay 15 to 20% over the intrinsic value. We too seldom have smaller amounts available. Thankfully, selling bullion isn’t a large part of our business, so when we’re able to supply gold and silver bullion, it is always less expensive than bullion dealers. This is a small 5 gram (16% of a troy ounce) Johnson Matthey 9999 gold bar in a 14 karat gold frame. The gold bar is for sale at the current spot price plus 10% with no sales tax. The 14 karat gold frame weighs 0.57 grams and is priced at $52.50 plus sales tax. We will not sell the bar without the frame. If you’re a gold bug, this pendant allows you to wear just a little of what you like to invest in. The pendant is in perfect condition and looks unworn. Stock #e14503.

1/10 oz. 9999 fine gold Maple Leaf Canadian gold coins. Spot +10% e14349, e13551

Do not wait too long. Spot plus only 10% on fractional bullion and NO tax never happens. These smaller, fractional-ounce gold coins usually trade at the current bullion “spot” price plus at least 15% to 20%. Physical gold and silver 999 bullion is very scarce right now, we get way more calls for it than we can supply. Not only is spot plus 10% a great price, but these coins are also untouched in their original sealed plastic packages. These are not the rarest coins, but that does not mean they’re easy to find. We hardly ever have anything other than the occasional 1-ounce versions for sale. At the moment, finding any fractional 9999 gold bullion coins is very difficult in the current economy. When you do find them expect to pay 15% or more over the current gold trading price. Those who have them usually squirrel them away and are always on the lookout for more. First come first serve. They are not subject to any sales tax. The Canadian Revenue Agency looks upon the sale of these coins as a “financial transaction” therefore no sales tax is collected when they trade hands. We have a limited number available so do not waste a lot of time thinking about it. Call us at 705 728 3343 or email us info@BillLeBoeufJewellers.com right now! Please add 2% for credit card payment.

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

You can’t get more rare or nostalgic than this. This is a 24 karat solid gold coin commemorating the city of Barrie’s 125th Anniversary in 1978. To our knowledge, there is only one other coin like this and it belongs to the city from the information I could gather. It was presented to the previous owner as a prize during the city celebration. The other side of the coin depicts 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. Included with the coin is the original presentation box, along with one of the more common circulation coins made of nickel. The coin is for sale for “spot price” plus 25%. Stock #e5220.

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%.

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.

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.

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%.

1 oz. Royal Canadian Mint 9999 fine gold bars spot plus 4% NO sales tax. e13604

With the recent increase in gold prices we were lucky enough to acquire these 10 fine gold Royal Canadian Mint 9999 one-ounce fine gold bars. 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. You could buy a really nice used car for the price of these gold bars, but we all know what sort of investment a used car is. 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. Gold bars do not 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 sales tax on the purchase. It is 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 bar 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 bar is sale priced at current “spot price” plus only 4%. We accept payment in both CAD and USD. For credit card purchases please add 2%. All 10 bars are in perfect condition still sealed in the Royal Canadian Mint packaging and each is individually serial numbered (some in sequence). 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 #e13604

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. Estate price $6,500.00 CAD (subject to change with the price of silver). Stock #e13581.

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

This is one very cool jewellery item. Each of these 90% pure gold coins are well over 100 years old, dating from 1881 and 1906. They’ve been expertly modified for use as jewellery. An attractive 4 petal, floral design bail was delicately soldered to each of the 21.6mm diameter coins. The craftsman who attached the 22 karat yellow gold bails did so with great care, making sure the gold solder didn’t bleed into the fine surface details. The large sturdy bail enables the coins to be worn on a variety of large chain or cord style necklaces. Don’t worry too much about the diminished numismatic coin collector value because of the modification. These are both relatively common coins with close to 8 million examples being struck. Each coin pendant weighs an average of 9.69 grams and contains approximately $600.00 CAD worth of gold (at current market price). As a suggestion we are showing the pendants on a black rubber and leather cord necklace with sterling silver clasps. The cord necklaces are available in a variety of lengths,colours and gauges. We are including one of these necklace options with the purchase of either coin for no extra charge. Each coin pendant and necklace is estate priced at $700.00 CAD. Stock #s e10438 and e10439.

1913 U.S. $5.00 gold coin 10% over melt price. e12803

It’s easy to appreciate the art of engraving with beautiful antique gold coins. Over 900,000 of this coin were minted making them not particularly rare but that doesn’t mean they are seen very often as many have been worn out, recycled or lost over the last century. Buying a coin like this is a small investment in gold, antiques and art all at the same time. We are offering the coin for just its fine gold content value plus 10%. It’s like buying a painting for just 10% more than the cost of the paint! This coin is comprised of 90% pure gold and contains 0.242 actual ounces of fine gold worth about $484.00 at current gold prices ($2,000.00 Canadian). Stock #12803.

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.

3 x 100 oz. fine silver bars $2,400.00 each (NO SALES TAX). e13019 e13020 e13021

Silver bullion is so inexpensive right now. 1 ounce of silver is more than 85 times less expensive than 1 ounce of gold. The historic relationship of gold vs. silver price is closer to 40 to 1. There have only been 2 other times in history that I’m aware of when the silver/gold ratio has been 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 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 $2,400.00 CAD (credit card purchases please add 2% service fee). First come first serve. Contact us immediately if you’re interested. Stock #e13019, e13020, e13021.

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%.

1989 1/4oz. Chinese Panda fine gold coin 99.99% pure. Spot plus 2%. e12855

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. Like all bullion coins sold in Canada regardless of origin they are sold exempt of sales tax. As with all commodities, gold coin pricing changes with the price of the bullion. This is the only one we have, when it’s gone it’s gone. We are offering the fair condition 7.803 gram coin at the spot gold price plus 2% and NO TAX.

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. Credit card payments will be charged an additional 2% service fee. First come first serve. Stock #e12546.
