Precious Metals Bullion Trust is a secure, convenient and low-cost way to invest in physical gold, platinum and silver bullion, on a Canadian dollar-hedged basis.


  • All physical gold, silver and platinum bullion bars are stored on a fully allocated, insured and physically segregated basis in Canada, in the treasury vaults of the Bank of Nova Scotia, a Canadian Schedule 1 bank.


  • Investors can hold an interest in physical gold, silver and platinum bullion by buying units of the Fund directly on the Toronto Stock Exchange
  • Units are traded through investment dealers, like any other exchange-traded security. 
  • Investors should contact their investment advisors to buy or sell units of the Fund.
  • Units can be redeemed quarterly for physical gold, silver and platinum bullion (subject to minimum redemption amounts).


  • The Fund offers investors a lower-cost alternative to buying and storing bullion directly, due to economies of scale in the purchase and secure storage of physically segregated gold, silver and platinum bullion. 

Canadian Dollar-Hedged:

  • Many investors buy physical gold, silver and platinum bullion to hedge against potential devaluation of the US dollar. 
  • As bullion prices are quoted in US dollars, a weakening US dollar could reduce or eliminate the real value of increased bullion price. 
  • The Fund gives investors an additional layer of protection against this risk by eliminating US dollar exposure through hedging its bullion holdings to the Canadian dollar.

You will usually pay brokerage fees to your dealer if you purchase or sell units of the investment fund on the Toronto Stock Exchange or alternative Canadian trading platforms (an “exchange”). If the units are purchased or sold on an exchange, investors may pay more than the current net asset value when buying units of the investment fund and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling them.

There are ongoing fees and expenses associated with owning units of an investment fund. An investment fund must prepare disclosure documents that contain key information about the fund. You can find more detailed information about the fund in the public filings available at The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account certain fees such as redemption costs or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. Investment funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.
