Why should you buy and sell gold and silver online?
True North Gold Buyer does not waste your money on local stores or free mailing kits, which reduces costs so that we can give you the best payouts in the business.
People that prefer to buy from online stores, like Amazon, do that because it is comfortable and easy but especially because they get the same product at a much lower price compared to a retail store in their local mall. How is that possible? In the case of Amazon, their strategy has always been to focus on an efficient and cost-effective online business. Instead of wasting customers' money on running a network of expensive local stores, they are able to offer their customers the best prices.
True North Gold Buyer uses the same strategy to make sure you get the most cash for your gold. We are an online business registered in Canada, analyzing and refining all precious metals in one secure and central location. In addition, we keep overhead costs low by not spending the value of your gold on local stores with countless employees or "free" return envelopes. This means that all the money goes straight back to you as a higher payout than what the local competitors can offer.
No high-paying gold buyer near you?
Is there no gold buyer near you or just one that does not pay well due to lack of competition? We can help you with this problem. All you need is access to a post office to have access to True North Gold Buyer’s high payouts. In addition to the professional services offered across Canada, we pay prices that beat local gold buyers and pawnbrokers, even in large cities where competition is strong.
No "free" mail-in kits?
Free shipping does not exist. The customer always has to pay for these kits in one way or another.
Our goal is to offer you the most cash for your gold, and that is possible because we do not waste your money on prepaid envelopes and kits. Competitors that tempt you with so-called "free" mail-in kits make you pay not only for your kit, but also for all the ordered kits that are never sent in. Some cover these costs just by offering lower payouts while others may deceive their customers when weighing and testing the items. In this blog post, we compare what we paid a customer to what another gold buyer with "free" mail-in kits would have paid for the same items.
To sum it up: Despite her paying the shipping costs, she still earned $ 269 more for her jewelry by selling to us than she would have received had she fallen for the "free" mail-in kits from our competitors.

A Gold Sovereign is a gold coin first issued in 1489 for Henry VII of England and still in production as of 2009. While the coin typically had a nominal value of one pound sterling or 20 shillings, the sovereign was primarily an official piece of bullion with no mark of value anywhere on the coin itself.
The name "sovereign" comes from the majestic and impressive size and portraiture of the coin, the earliest of which showed the king facing, seated on a throne, while the reverse shows the Royal coat of arms on a shield surrounded by a Tudor double rose.
|Year||Coin Weight||Gold Content||Gold Content in %|
|since 1817||7.9881 g||0.2354 oz (7.322 g)||91.67% (22KT)|
Original sovereigns were 23 karat (95.83%) gold and weighed 240 grains or one-half of a troy ounce (15.6 grams). Henry VIII reduced the purity to 22 carats (91.67%), which eventually became and remains the gold coin standard (so-called crown gold) in both England and the U.S.; the weight of the sovereign was repeatedly lowered until when it was revived after the Great Recoinage law of 1816, the gold content was fixed at the present 113 grains (7.322 g), equivalent to 0.2354 Troy ounces.
Sovereigns were discontinued after 1604, being replaced by Unites, and later by Laurels, and then guineas. Production of sovereigns restarted in 1817. The initial reverse type for gold coins was the shield and crown motif, supplemented on the sovereign with a heraldic wreath. This was succeeded in 1871 by a portrayal of Saint George killing a dragon, engraved by Benedetto Pistrucci. This same design is still in use on British gold sovereigns, although other reverse designs have also been used during the reigns of William IV, Victoria, George IV, and Elizabeth II.
The half sovereign was first introduced in 1544 under Henry VIII. It was a gold coin valued at ten shillings or 120 pre-decimal pennies. After 1604, the issue of half sovereigns, along with sovereigns, was discontinued until 1817, following a major revision of British coinage. Production continued until 1926 and, apart from special issues for coronation years, was not restarted until 1980. It was also used extensively in Australia, until 1933.
Modern half sovereigns, from 1817 onwards have a weight of 3.991 grams (diameter has beeen changed slightly and changed back again) are made of 22KT (91.666%) gold alloy. The reverse side, featuring St. George slaying a dragon was designed by Benedetto Pistrucci, whose initials appear to the right of the date.
