gold coins


Ounce for ounce the most valuable of the precious metals, gold is found in estates in the form of bullion bars, investments coins, jewellery, watches and occasionally even dental gold

silver bars and coins


Silver circulating Canadian and American silver coin collections from years before the mid-1960’s, silver bars and Olympic coins, sterling silver tea services and cutlery, are all common in estates

platinum ring


Less common than gold, but still we find platinum wedding bands, some investments bars, and some “white gold” jewellery that is really platinum. Less valuable now than gold, but worthwhile

palladium bars and coins


A cousin to platinum in the PGM metals, palladium often occurs as part of the alloy in dental golds.  We evaluate and buy a lot of dental gold, including bridgework and other appliances

Bullion Bars

The most fungible form of precious metals, bullion bars from a recognized “good value” source like Credit Suisse or Scotiabank among others fetch the highest percentage of value on sale

Investment Coins

Gold or silver coins made specifically for investment, such as Canadian Olympic coins, fetch good percentages of value, although less than bullion since many coins are not pure

Silver Currency

Legal to melt with proper permits, many estates contain coin collections featuring circulating Canadian and American silver coin from the mid-1960’s and earlier.  Intrinsic silver value invariably exceeds face value by a factor of several times.

18 karat gold chain


Although less fungible than more pure forms, old gold jewellery and watches can be sold for their intrinsic gold value.  Some particularly unique pieces may be sold as estate jewellery
