"How Do I know i'm getting real gold ?"


This is the most common question I hear from new clients.  So to help you have complete confidence in your purchase from Silvertip Gold, I'll explain here the lengths that I go to, to ensure you know what my authentication process is.

As the sole proprietor of Silvertip, I personally check and verify everything myself, so there's no hired-hands or third parties that are ever in my vault.  ALL new products come sealed from the Royal Canadian Mint, which is a world renowned mint, which produces extremely high grade bullion products.   So you can have complete confidence in their products.

For buyback items, everything is verified before I make the purchase.  It is then stored in my vault and is not removed until the day or your purchase.  When we meet up for your purchase, if you would like to see for yourself that an item is real for sure, the world leader in bullion testing company, SIGMA, is the machine used to do that for you.  The SIGMA Metalytics Verifier Pro unit, test through the entire coin or bar, and instantly shows you on screen that the item if verified as pure gold/silver.  The SIGMA is 100% accurate, and is an essential tool for any gold dealer.

If you've studied gold testing, you've most assuredly seen many different methods that people have used throughout time.  There's a water density test, a magnet test, a temperature conductivity test, an acid test, a ring test, a test where you look through a magnifying glass to look to for certain imperfections, a weight test, a dimensions test, and believe it or not, I've even had people do a sniff test, where they rub the gold and then smell it, to see if it's real.  But  in my 10 years of being a gold dealer, I've come to know that all of these tests are not 100% accurate.  That's why anything I sell now, MUST be verified with the SIGMA tester, and it's so critical, that I would suggest that no one ever purchase another gold coin/bar, if the seller can not verify it with a SIGMA tester.  I never will.


And finally, Silvertip is a mobile, customer-direct business, where you're dealing directly with the Royal Canadian Mint's certified Bullion Dealer.  You take immediate possession of your gold or silver, but there is no store to attend.  Depending on the amount purchased, meetings are either one to one at a designated location, or we can meet right at your place of business or home for larger amounts.  I do realize that some people do not like the customer-direct business approach, and for them, it is best for them to pay the extra costs and deal with the banks, but if you're the sort of customer that can do your homework, and know that Silvertip is a local long-time certified business, and want to take immediate possession of your items, then I'd be glad to meet you and answer any questions you may have, about how to and why, investing in gold and silver has proven throughout history, to be a great and necessary way of protecting and even growing your wealth. 


If you believe you'd like to find out more, I'd love to take your call, and see if I can help play a part in your investment plans.
