About the Owner:
Michael Levy began his career in the gold bullion business in 1968 and has been actively involved in it throughout his high profile career. He began back when gold was fixed at $35 per ounce and the U.S. was still operating on a gold exchange standard. As the United States continuously inflated their currency to finance their hasty government spending, there was an insecurity worldwide surrounding paper currency.
At that point it was still illegal for U.S. residents to hold any gold coins minted after 1915. There was, however, a constant flow of gold bullion into the U.S. (not unlike today), yet volumes were miniscule to current flows,
and Americans' importing and holding gold were then breaking the law.
It was in these early years that Michael began his gold export business to the U.S., (and just to clarify it was perfectly legal to own, hold and ship gold to and from Canada at that time).
The Levy family, through bull and bear markets alike, stayed in the gold trade business consistently since those less than auspicious beginnings.
Michael Levy experienced the wave of gold buying that started in the mid-1970's, the excitement of 1979 and into 1980 when gold touched $850 per ounce in January of that year. Then the fall back to the low hundred dollar values in the late 1990's into the early 2000's, and then back up to over $1900 per ounce in late 2011.
The lineups to buy actual physical gold then are not unlike the desire to own bullion that we have
seen through the peaks and valleys of the first decade of this century and into 2012. Even during the downturn into 2001 and 2002 when gold backed off the low $200 range, Michael continued as one of the senior gold dealers in Canada.
Today, Michael is still active in our business along with sharing his decades of experience in investments, markets and media as an expert analyst and commentator on the economy. Particularly, his expertise is called upon time and again as gold investment takes its rightful place as one of the world's most important investment strategies.
Michael is adamant, as he has been from the outset of his four plus decades in the bullion business, that every single person or family should hold some physical gold in their personal portfolio. Michael looks upon physical gold not as an investment, but as an insurance or store of value against all other investments, paper or otherwise. Check out our useful resource – Why Buy Gold – for more information.
This single vision for gold has proven to be the one constant in the 44 years Michael Levy has been recommending that we all have "a little gold in our portfolio." He has not, nor will he waver from this view, even as different proxies for gold make their way in and out of favor in the
changing landscapes of investment markets.
Border Gold Corp. was established in 1994 in White Rock B.C., close to the U.S. border, so it may serve the needs of clients both in Canada and the United States wondering where to buy gold.
Border Gold is a market maker, both buying gold and silver and as well as selling bullion products to and from clients on a daily basis. A great number of Border's clientele have been buying and selling to Border (or our predecessor companies) since the original company was incorporated in 1968.
