Looking for a specific class of precious metals dealer in Alberta?
Buying Gold and Silver in Alberta
Gold was discovered in Alberta in the mid-1800s and while it may not be as well known for it’s gold as British Columbia or Yukon, there are still reasonable quantities of placer gold deposits to be found.
Hobbyist gold panning in Alberta’s rivers is popular and it’s these fine deposits of placer gold that are responsible for several mini gold rushes in the 1800’s.
Most of us prefer investment in gold to involve a somewhat easier retail purchase, instead of back-breaking gold panning – and thankfully buying gold in Alberta is easy, due to a good spread of local gold silver bullion and coin dealers across Alberta in addition to the growing selection of national bullion dealers in Canada.
Alberta is home to Bullion Dealer Of the Year 2016 winners, Silver Gold Bull.

Are Bullion Sales Taxed in Alberta?
Most precious metal bullion in Canada is exempt from GST/HST provided the precious metals are defined as bars, ingots, coins or wafers of gold, silver or platinum, refined to a minimum purity of 99.50% for gold and platinum, or 99.9% for silver.
Note that palladium products ARE subject to HST/GST.
For bullion and coins that fall outside of these purities, Alberta charges HST at 5% and there is no PST in Alberta on bullion.
Bullion and coins are liable to Capital Gains Tax within Alberta as they are across Canada, subject to Personal-Use Property exemptions. These Listed Personal Property (LPP) rules state that coins with a resale value and gain of $1000 or less are exempt from a capital gain.
