Silver Gold Bull Inc. is a registered corporation in Canada that is based in Calgary (Alberta). It offers precious metal bullion coins and bars out of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium and copper. It also sells a limited selection of gold necklaces and various accessories for the handling and safekeeping of the purchased precious metals. Secure storage of the purchased precious metals is offered through their affiliated partner Transcontinental Depository Services (TDS). The purchased physical metals will be delivered to the customer or directly to the secure storage vault. The secure storage vaults are located in Canada, the United States, Germany, Switzerland and Singapore.
Besides buying bullion directly, Canadian customers can also buy bullion from Silver Gold Bull for their Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs). In order to do this, customers would first have to open a self-directed registered account with Questrade. Opening such a RRSP account is free but it needs to be funded with a minimum of USD $1,000. Your account with Silver Gold Bull (that is also free to open) can then be directly linked to your Questrade RRSP account by simply filling out an authorization form. All your bullion purchases will then be debited from your Questrade RRSP account and shipped to Brinks secure storage vault in Ontario.
