Q&A: Buying Gold

This image is no longer available

Q –If a person wanted to buy hard gold or silver, can you suggest a source other than the bank, which seems to have a markup of about $100 per ounce. That seemed a little steep to me. Thank you. – Al H.

A – There are several companies that sell gold to Canadians. I have never used any of them personally so I cannot vouch for them but Kitco has a good reputation and offers an on-line service at https://online.kitco.com/.

Other non-bank companies include Border Gold (http://www.bordergold.com) and Canadian Bullion Services (www.canadianbullionservices.com). – G.P.
