Wants to invest in coins

Q – Where can I purchase gold and silver coins for investment purposes in Canada? – J.-L. R.

A – It depends on what you’re looking for. If you’re talking about collectibles, there are numismatic stores in all major Canadian cities. Check the yellow pages under coin dealers.

If you’re talking about buying gold bullion or silver, the Bank of Nova Scotia used to offer bars and wafers, but now they issue gold and silver certificates instead through ScotiaMcLeod Direct Investing. – G.P.
