Looking to get Cash for Gold?

Sell Gold Jewelry, Gold Coins, Gold Bars or Scrap Gold to True North Gold Buyer

We are one of the country's fastest and highest paying buyers of Gold, Silver and other Precious Metals and offer our service Simcoe County towns and communities like Barrie, Innisfil, Bradford, Orillia, Collingwood, Essa, Oro-Medonte, Wasaga Beach, Springwater, Midland, Clearview, Severn, Tiny, Adjala-Tosorontio, Tay, Ramara, Penetanguishene and Canada wide. We pay top dollar for old gold, silver or platinum containing items and jewelry, such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, watches, coins, bars, silverware, crucibles, thermocouples or dental gold.

Why buy and sell gold and silver online with True North Gold Buyer?

We don't squander your money on local stores or free mail-in kits, thus allowing us to reduce costs and offer you the highest payouts in the business.

Have you ever wondered why you can buy the same item for a much lower price from an online store, such as Amazon, than at the retail store in your local mall? This comes down to one simple reason – Amazon's strategy has always been to focus on running an efficient online business, thereby being able to offer their customers the best prices, instead of wasting their customers' money on running a network of expensive local stores.

True North Gold Buyer is using the same principle to make sure you get the most cash for your gold. We are a registered Canadian online business and assay & refine all precious metals in one secure, central location. On top of that we keep the overhead costs low by not spending the value of your gold on local stores, local sales clerks or "free" return envelopes. This means all the money can go straight back to you as a higher payout than what any local competitors can offer.

No gold buyers with high payouts in your area?

Are there no gold buyers anywhere close to where you live, or just one that doesn't pay very well due to lack of competition? We can help you with that. If you have access to a post office, you have access to True North Gold Buyer.
Not only do we offer professional service all over Canada, we also pay rates that beat local gold buyers and pawn shops even in larger cities where there is a lot of competition.

Fair Payouts! No lowball offers, no lengthy haggling!

We are always completely open and honest about our payout rates.

We pay fair, market-driven prices for any gold, silver or platinum item we buy, with no hidden fees. When doing business with us you're guaranteed to get the most cash for your gold.
Simply use our payout estimator to calculate what we will pay for your items before sending them in. You just need to know the gold content of your items and have a scale to weigh them.
We are committed to providing the highest level of service to make sure you are 100% satisfied and to earning your repeat business and referrals. For our satisfied customers, we offer a referral program which will pay them 1% of any referral business we get through them.

No "free" mail-in kits?

Free mail-in kits don't exist. Customers always pay for these kits one way or another.

Our goal is to offer you the most cash for your gold and that is only possible because we don't squander your money on prepaid envelopes and kits. Competitors that give you so-called "free" mail-in kits force you to pay not only for your kit but also for all the ordered kits that are never mailed in. They either cover these costs by offering lower payouts or by cheating when weighing and testing your items. In our Blog we posted a comparison between our payout for a customer's lot vs. what a competitor with "free" mail-in kits would have paid.
Bottom line: With shipping fees taken into account she received $ 269 more for her jewelry than she would have received by falling for our competitor's "free" mail-in service.

How to ship your gold, silver or platinum to us

With the help of our payout estimator you can easily calculate your payout. It will also provide you with a prefilled shipping label that you can print and tape to your package. Choose a carrier and service (we recommend Canada Post - Xpresspost with tracking) and send your items to:

We buy gold bars and ingots

Bars and Ingots


A gold bar is a quantity of refined metallic gold of any shape that is made by a bar producer meeting standard conditions of manufacture, labeling, and record keeping. Larger gold bars that are produced by pouring the molten metal into molds are called ingots. Smaller bars may be manufactured by minting or stamping from appropriately rolled gold sheets.
The standard gold bar held by central banks and traded among bullion dealer is the 400-ounce (12.4 kg) Good Delivery gold bar.


Gold bars are classified into two different types, casted and minted, based on their method of manufacturing. Cast bars are made by pouring molten gold into an ingot mold to shape the gold product. Minted bars are made from gold blanks that have been hand cut to the required dimensions from a flat piece of gold. Markings are almost always applied by presses. ChipGold is a relatively new form of gold bar consisting of a small ingot (1-20 grams) in a sealed and certified package the size of a credit card.

Standard bar weights

Gold is measured in troy ounces, often simply referred to as ounce when the reference to gold is evident. One troy ounce is equivalent to 31.1034768 grams.
The much more commonly used avoirdupois ounce is used for measuring weights in most situation in daily life in countries using imperial measures. An avoirdupois ounce is lighter than a troy ounce; One avoirdupois ounce = 28.349523125 grams.
The standard gold bar held and traded internationally by central banks and bullion dealers is the Good Delivery bar with a 400 oz. nominal weight. However, its precise gold content is permitted to vary between 350 oz and 430 oz. The minimum purity required is 99.5% gold. These bars must be stored in recognized and secure gold bullion vaults to maintain their quality status of Good Delivery. The recorded provenance of this bar assures integrity and maximum resale value.

  • One tonne = 1000 kilograms = 32,150.746 troy ounces.
  • One kilogram = 1000 grams = 32.15074656 troy ounces.
  • One tola = 11.6638038 grams.
  • One tael = 37.429 grams.
  • TT (Ten Tola) = 117 grams (3.75 oz).

Tola is a traditional Indian measure for the weight of gold and prevalent to this day. Many international gold manufacturers supply tola bars of 999.96 purity.


An ingot is a material, usually metal, that is cast into a shape suitable for further processing. Non-metallic and semiconductor materials prepared in bulk form may also be referred to as ingots, particularly when cast by mold based methods.


Ingots require a second procedure of shaping, such as cold/hot working, cutting or milling to produce a useful final product. Additionally ingots (of less common materials) can be used as currency, or as a currency reserve as with gold bars.

Types of ingots

Metal, either pure or alloy, heated past its melting point and cast into a bar or block using a mold chill method. Polycrystalline and single crystal ingots are made from semiconductor materials by pulling from a molten melt. Uses include the formation of photovoltaic cells from silicon ingots by cutting the ingot into flats, known as wafers.

Single crystal ingots

Single crystal ingots (called boules) of materials are grown (crystal growth) using methods such as the Czochralski process or Bridgeman technique.
The boules may be either semiconductors—for the electronic industry, or non-conducting inorganic compounds for industrial and jewellery use, e.g., synthetic ruby, sapphire etc.
Single crystal ingots of metal are produced in similar fashion to that used to produce high purity semiconductor ingots, i.e. by vacuum induction refining. Single crystal ingots of engineering metals are of interest due to their very high strength due to lack of grain boudaries. The method of production is via single crystal dendrite and not via simple casting. Possible uses include turbine blades.

Copper alloy ingots

In the United States, the brass and bronze ingot making industry started in the early 1800s. The US brass industry grew to be the number one producer by the 1850s. During colonial times the brass and bronze industrial was almost non-existent because the British demanded all copper ore be sent to Britain for processing. Copper based alloy ingots weighed approximately 20 pounds (9.1 kg).
