2 Redeemable for Metals

Sprott Physical Gold and Silver Trust can be redeemed for physical bullion monthly.*

The Royal Canadian Mint will facilitate the delivery of bullion bars to almost anywhere in the world via an Armored Transportation Service Carrier – and all physical redemptions are equal to 100%* of the net asset value (NAV) per unit.

* Minus redemption and delivery expenses, including the handling of the notice of redemption in the applicable bullion storage-in and -out fees. Subject to certain minimum requirements.

3 Trustworthy Storage


Sprott Physical Gold and Silver Trust

The Trusts’ physical gold and silver bullion assets will be custodied by the Royal Canadian Mint to minimize counterparty risk.
Established in 1908, The Royal Canadian Mint is internationally recognized – and it has no risk of bankruptcy or nationalization.
Sprott’s partnership with the Royal Canadian Mint helps to mitigate a legitimate concern about counterparty risk.

Bullion Banks

Other bullion funds, especially popular ETFs, store with bullion banks and other financial institutions.
It was shown in 2008 that even the most powerful financial institutions are not immune from insolvency.
In the event of a crisis, you may experience increased counterparty risk if your bullion is stored with a highly leveraged bank.

4 Potential Tax Advantage

For U.S. non-corporate investors who hold units for more than one year, the Trust can provide a tax advantage on gains in comparison to other forms of holding bullion.
