Here in Florida $1800 is the norm for a good breeder.

Sandwich was $800 (definitely cheaper end in WA), but there were papers only for her mom, and some relatives on the dad's side, but not the dad in particular. No clearances. In general, I've seen goldens for $1500+ in WA state.

Tiger 1999 $425 some clearances, mostly BYB breeding, from Alaska
Pennie 2000 $500 some clearances, mostly BYB breeding, but better than Tiger, from Alaska
Hunter 2006? rescue - endless vet bills - most expensive "free" dog, from Alaska
Reilly 2007 $1400 some clearances, from a BYB masquerading as a good breeder, from Portland, OR
Lucy 2012 $1200 excellent breeding, all clearances, from Alaska

You have to do background checks on the dogs being bred. Don't assume because someone is on their GR club board they are ok. It's up to you to make sure everything is legit.

This summer Pearl was $1000 in Vancouver BC. Very small hobby breeder. I had seen much higher prices and was surprised at her price when I finally asked.

$1200 for Lexx in 2012. I got him from a breeder in Alberta.

My other 2 boys are from BYBs....$300 and $400 back in 2009.

They are all priceless!!

There are a couple of breeders in AB that I've been curious about- may I ask where Lexx came from?
