What We Pay For Your Gold

Learn about

Selling your gold

We believe that having the right information and knowing what your gold is worth is the most important thing to know when deciding to sell your gold. Used and second-hand industries – from pawnshops to used car lots – have a bad reputation when offering a fair price for gold and we believe this comes from the imbalance of information between dealer and seller. The dealers often know much more about their product and it’s true value than their customer. This often results in the dealer using that knowledge to their advantage and offering the lowest price they can. If you go into a pawnshop you might expect to get a low offer and negotiate from there. So, if they initially offer you $100 and you settle on $150 you might be very happy at first… until you learn that they would have been willing to pay $300 if needed.

We want to be a different kind of business and earn your trust with transparency and honesty by always offering a fair price.
Here is how we aim to do that:

Market Price

In terms of the market price for gold, as of early 2018, we are at about $1700/oz which is way above the long-term average and over 90% of the all-time high reached in 2012 of around $1800/oz. So, based on past gold prices, this is one of the best times to sell. Projecting forward is much harder and at any given moment you can find lots of varied opinions on whether gold prices and going to go up or down. We never try to time the market with our sales and refining, but we have lots of customers who keep a close eye on what’s happening with gold price to decide when to come in.

Our Payouts

When we opened for business, gold was around $600/oz (compared to around $1700/oz as of May 2018) and our prices started at 73% of spot price for scrap gold – which was significantly over the industry average of 40%-50% offered by most local and mail-in buyers. As we have grown, higher volumes and better testing have allowed us to raise our starting and minimum prices to 80% of the market value in our gold. In addition, we now pay much higher prices for premium items such as bullion, coins, jewellery with diamonds, brand name items, and large purchases. Factoring in all gold purchases, our average CASH FOR gold payout was 91% of spot price in 2017 – our highest payout percentage ever.

Do you pay the most?

A quick google search will find lots of articles like THIS ONE that show that most gold buyers across the industry pay between 30-60% of the market value for scrap gold. In Kiplinger.com’s post, one buyer even offered 9%! Canada Gold offers a minimum payment of 80% of the spot PRICE OF GOLD IN CANADA, and higher for bullion, premium items, and larger transactions. In many areas, our prices are the highest advertised price out there!

Obviously, the advertised price is not everything though, and what really matters is getting the highest actual offer for your gold. Differences in how the metal is tested (the composition of the gold, any subtractions for stones, etc), fees and minimums, and the occasional dishonest dealer – we recommend checking with the Better Business Bureau – make it much better to actually compare offers for your gold rather than just the listed prices (warning though – if the dealer does not list a price or won’t tell you over the phone what they pay they almost always offer very low rates). We are very confident that the offer you receive from us will be the highest, and if you do receive a higher offer we will beat that price by 120% of the difference.

Higher payouts lead to more business, more referrals, and more happy customers!

Product Melting FAQs

While most of the gold we buy does get melted down, about 5% of the items we see do actually get polished, repaired and resold. By buying gold with the intent to resell, we are able to offer higher prices for these items. We also buy and resell diamonds and bullion. Here are some of the things we consider when determining if an item can be resold – and a premium price offered:

1) Are there any diamonds in the piece? We always pay a higher amount for items with diamonds.

2) Is the piece from a brand name like Tiffany or Cartier? Again, we always pay a premium for high-end brand name items.

3) Is there a resale market for this item? Items that are still in style and purchased in the last few years, antique jewellery, and staples (diamond studs, eternity bands) are the most likely to fit into this category.

4) How heavy is the item? While we pay a premium price for heavier jewellery, often this gold was purchased and popular when the market value of gold was much lower and the piece more affordable. Heavy jewellery (chains etc.) are usually melted downs. Smaller pieces with a high degree of craftsmanship and intricacy are more likely to be resold.

5) What kind of condition is the item in? While we do repair many pieces before reselling them, this does add to our cost. Some items move from the online store to the melting pot based on condition.

If you want to get a fair price for your gold, visit one CANADA GOLD’S LOCATIONS in Vancouver, Surrey, North Vancouver, Richmond, Hamilton, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, or Halifax, find one of our nearby locations here. Canada Gold is accredited with the Better Business Bureau and is an authorized DNA dealer for the Royal Canadian Mint.

*This breakdown is based on our gold purchases we refine in aggregate (so does not include items we resell like bullion or premium jewellery). Individual transactions range from payouts of 80% to 99.2% of market price. If broken out, smaller transactions would have a larger percentage of value going to wages and overhead and profit, while still returning 80% to the customer. Larger transactions paying over 91% would obviously be the opposite!

Silver Coins

Until part way through 1968, Canadian dollars, half-dollars, quarters and dimes contained at least some silver. (nickels, as the name suggests, are made from nickel and not silver… but before they were called nickels, there were tiny silver 5-cent coins called a half-dime.)

Excluding the oldest coins and a few other rare years, most of these coins are valued based on their silver content.

Coins by Date Range

gold buyers green dot transparent image for design features

1870-1919

92.5% silver content. Many of the coins in this date range have value above their silver content if from a rare year or in good shape. The coin value guide below will help determine which coins can be sold for metal value vs. which coins should be sold for numismatic value
gold buyers green dot transparent image for design features

1920-1955

80% silver content. Each dollar of face value from these years contains 0.6 oz of pure silver, and most coins in this range sell for silver value only. But keep on the lookout for 1947 and 1948 coins - these rare years sell for much more than melt value.
gold buyers green dot transparent image for design features

1967

Dollars and half-dollars - 80% silver. Quarters and dimes: ~ half 80%, half 50% (they switched the purity these coins were made halfway through the year). Canada Gold’s payouts for these coins is based on the average of 65% silver.
gold buyers green dot transparent image for design features

1968

Dollars and half dollars - no silver content. Quarters and dimes: ~ half 50% silver, half no silver content. (The easiest way to tell them apart is to test with a magnet. Canadian coins with silver content are never magnetic, so if a 1968 quarter jumps on the magnet you know it is not silver).

No circulated coins from these years contain any silver content. Some common commemorative coins contain 50% silver, and some from recent years contain 92.5% silver.

Sorting & Evaluating 

Silver Coins

Here is how we sort and evaluate Canadian coins to determine their value. If there are only a few coins, you can always just look at the date ranges, and consult a price guide to determine rare years. These tips will help you sort through a big collection efficiently, but keep in mind that you do not have to sort any of your coins before coming into one of our locations. We are happy to do all sorting with you and can answer any questions you might have along the way.

Step 1: Magnet test – Canadian silver coins are not magnetic, so anything that jumps on the magnet can be set aside.

Step 2: Obverse sorting – look at the obverse (heads) side of the coin. Using the portraits (shown below) you can quickly sort the coins into date ranges – way easier than squinting for the dates at this stage initial sort.

Step 3: Final sorting – Based on the portraits, we do a final comb through for numismatic value and for silver purity. See below what we do for each range.

1965-1989 Elizabeth VII

Victoria, Edward VII, George V: Fewer than 5% of the coins we see are within the range of dates that include one of these portraits. It is worth reviewing each individual year with a price guide like the one below to determine which coins are worth more than melt. Coins with these portraits are split between 92.5% silver (pre 1919) and 80% silver (post 1920), so any coins that might be melted with be sorted by purity for accurate and fair payout.

George VI: ~5% of the coins we see. All of these coins are 80% silver, and most years sell for melt value. Keep watch for the 1948 dollar in particular. This rare coin is usually worth over $600 and one in specimen condition is worth thousands.

Young Elizabeth: ~50% of the coins we see. All of these coins are 80% silver and are very rarely worth more than silver value.

Slightly less young Elizabeth: ~40% of the coins we see. Some of these coins are 80% pure, some 50% – magnetic, non-silver coins will have already been removed. Since there are different purities with this same portrait, you will need to sort based on the dates. 1965 and 1966 as well as 1967 dollars and half dollars contain 80% silver. 1967 quarters and dimes are evaluated as an average of 65% silver. Non-magnetic 1968 quarters and dimes contain 50% silver (any magnetic 1968 coins have no silver).

Victoria, Edward VII, George V: Fewer than 5% of the coins we see are within the range of dates that include one of these portraits. It is worth reviewing each individual year with a price guide like the one below to determine which coins are worth more than melt.

All about

Coin value

A coin’s value as a collector’s item depends on many factors. These include its condition, historical significance, rarity, quality, design and general popularity with collectors. Generally speaking, most circulated Canadian and American silver coins are worth their material silver value, but there are certain exceptions usually based on rarity.
