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

By not wasting your money on local stores or free mail-in kits, we can cut costs and therefore give you the highest payouts in the market.

Have you ever wondered why you can buy the same item at a much lower price from an online store, like Amazon, than at the local store in your mall? There's a simple reason for this: Amazon's strategy has always focused on running an efficient online business to offer its customers the best prices, instead of wasting their customers' money on a network of expensive local retail stores.

We use the same principle to make sure you get the most cash out of your gold. True North Gold Buyer is a registered Canadian online business. We analyze and refine all precious metals in a secure, central location. In addition, we keep overheads low by not spending the value of your gold on retail stores, vendors, or "free" return envelopes. This means that all the money goes directly back to you as a higher payout compared to what local competitors can offer you.

Searching for a high-paying gold buyer near you?

Are there no gold buyers near you or just one who does not pay well due to lack of competition? Our professional online service can help you with this problem. We pay prices that beat local gold buyers and pawn shops even in larger cities where there is a lot of competition.
All you need is access to a post office and you have access to True North Gold Buyer.

No "free" mail-in kits?

Free mail-in kits do not exist. Customers always pay for these kits in one way or another.

Our goal is to give you the most cash for your gold, and that's only possible because we're not squandering your money on prepaid envelopes and kits. Competitors who lure you with so-called "free" mail-in kits force you not only to pay for your kit, but also for all ordered kits that are never shipped. They cover these costs either through lower payouts or by incorrect weighing and testing. In our blog, we compare our payout for a customer's items with what a competitor with "free" mail-in kits would have paid.
Conclusion: Taken into account the shipping costs, she received $ 269 more from us for her jewelry than she would have received if she had fallen for the "free" mail-in service of our competitor.

Fast cash for your gold. Choose how you are paid.

Once your items arrive, they are unpacked, photographed, weighed and tested in a secure facility.

Sterling Silverware, Tableware & Flatware

Are you sitting on a treasure of old, mismatched or damaged silverware pieces?

Even though nowadays high-grade steel cutlery has replaced the silverware of old for good reasons many might still have a treasure hidden in their basement or attic without even knowing. The value of silverware has increased greatly due to its precious metals content. We offer you top prices for your old silver. Give us a call at (705) 302 1055 or check out our payout estimator.

Is sterling silver the same as pure silver?

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum fineness of 925. Since fine silver or pure silver is relatively soft, it is usually alloyed with copper to increase its hardness and strength. Sterling silver is prone to tarnishing and staining, but fortunately that doesn't reduce the payout for the contained silver.
There is also the so called "Britannia silver standard". It is an alloy similar to sterling silver but contains a little more silver. The Britannia standard has a minimum fineness of 958 (95.84% silver). We don't care how scratched, bent or banged up your silverware is, we buy everything that contains precious metals, except for plated items.

How can I tell how much my old, tarnished silver is worth?

For items such as forks, spoons and saucepans that are made from solid sterling silver it can be as simple as weighing your pieces on a kitchen scale and entering the weights and the material type (“silver 925” for sterling silver) into our payout estimator and use it to calculate your payout.
For other items that are not completely made of solid silver it can be a little more difficult. Knives for example usually have blades made of (stainless) steel in order to be more wear resistant. In these cases only the handles are made of silver. Also the tang, the back portion of a blade, usually extends inside the handle to make a strong connection between blade and handle. Items, such as teapots may come with wooden handles that are affixed with brass screws.
For these non solid items, you will have to take the total weight and then just subtract an estimated percentage of what you think is not made of silver in order to get a rough idea of the payout you can get for them.

A set of assorted, mismatched silverware can easily get you a payout of $ 1000. Give us a call (705) 302 1055 and our experts will help you estimating the silver content of your silver flatware or tableware. You can also send an inquiry via our contact form and attach a picture of your items.

How can I tell if my items are made from real silver and not just plated?

If your items bear one or more of the following hallmarks, they are made from real silver and we will buy them:

  • Sterling (different fonts)
  • Sterling Silver
  • 925
  • 958
  • "Lion Passant Guardant" (embossed ahead looking lion)
  • "Lion's Head Erased" (Britannia silver standard, used a London town mark)
  • "Britannia" (Britannia is holding a trident in her right hand, left hand resting on a shield, not to be confused with Hibernia, the Dublin town mark for sterling silver, left hand resting on a harp)

Note: We buy anything that has a piece of solid silver on it – even if only a small part of the handle is made of silver we will still buy it! The only things we will not buy are silver plated items or items made from other alloys that do not actually contain any silver.
