    Hoping all the Canadian members can tell me when buying from Apmex, will I have to pay customs taxes? They have such a great variety of coins that I'd love to get my hands on. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

    They wouldn't ship to me. Only tried the once and the service person was abrupt so I ain't tried again. I find I'm better off to get a buddy in the South to buy and mail to me. If Apmex does send to you and you order stuff that is taxable, customs will take their share. As the AGE, St Gaudens, Liberty's are taxable it adds a hefty premium.

    I ordered a few years back (GIM rounds) and there were no taxes as this is considered bullion.

    That being said, your provincial tax regulations would be the determining factor. Since I ordered bullion, there was no tax. If the province deemed the purchase to be taxable (numanistic), then it would be taxed. The problem here is that some pieces are considered taxble by the province even though the mint (royal canadian mint - federal) has produced them as a bullion.

    I did not have to pay federal tax (GST) on the bullion either at the time.

    So the final answer is that it depends on which level of government tax it is and what the level considers the piece to be.

    But then, this is government. So all bets are off.:508:
