Sprott Physical Gold and Silver Trust

Invest with one of North America’s leading managers of physical bullion funds. Sprott is committed to providing world-class precious metals investments for clients. 


CEF: Formerly the Central Fund of Canada

The Sprott Physical Gold and Silver Trust began trading on January 16, 2018, on the NYSE Arca (Symbol: CEF) and the Toronto Stock Exchange (Symbol: CEF.U in U.S. dollars and CEF in Canadian dollars), marking the successful completion of Sprott’s acquisition of the US$3.5 billion Central Fund of Canada Limited. 

Reasons to Invest in CEF

Physical Bullion Only

The Trust only holds fully allocated and unencumbered precious metals — no exceptions. CEF exclusively invests in London Good Delivery ("LGD") physical gold and silver bullion. 

Redeemable for Metals

Unitholders have the ability to redeem their units for physical gold and silver bullion on a monthly basis, subject to certain minimum requirements.1

Potential Tax Advantages

The Trusts offer a potential tax advantage for certain non-corporate U.S. investors. Gains realized on the sale of the Trust’s units can be taxed at a capital gains rate of 15%/20%2 versus the 28% collectibles rate applied to most precious metals ETFs, coins and bars.

Trustworthy Storage

The Trusts metals will be held in custody by the Royal Canadian Mint, a Federal Crown Corporation of the Government of Canada. There is no levered financial institution between the unitholders and the Trusts' physical bullion and no risk of financial loss in the event of a bankruptcy or nationalization of the financial institution.

Easy to Buy, Sell & Own

Just like stocks, you can buy and sell the Trust throughout the trading day on both the New York Stock Exchange and Toronto Stock Exchange.
