Canada Gold is the country’s highest paying and most trusted precious metals dealer. We purchase all types of silver bullion, bars, rounds and coins.

The prices we pay depend largely on whether or not the bullion is recognized. We’re able to offer you a higher price for bullion produced by a recognized minting organization as it can be easily resold. The payouts for unrecognized bullion may be slightly lower as it must be refined or sold off for a lower resale price.

If you’re unsure whether or not your silver bullion is recognized, check the list below, call us toll-free at 1-888-682-5832 or visit us in person at your nearest Canada Gold store. For your convenience, we also offer a safe, secure and free mail-in service.
