Gold Bullion Coins

The Investors Choice

Gold Bullion Coins are struck from pure gold and are used mainly for investment purposes.

They are generally available in various weights that are multiples or fractions of one troy ounce.

Their pricing includes the market value of gold at the time of purchase, plus a premium of usually 5%. This premium is added to cover the costs associated with the production, distribution and storage.

U.S. Type

The most popular U.S. gold coin is the American Gold Eagle. This particular coin was introduced in 1986 and still produced each year.

The first 24k pure gold coin available to the public is the Gold Buffalo. Introduced in 2006, it was created to compete with foreign 24 karat gold coins.

Foreign Type

Some of the most popular investment type coins that are minted by many countries include the Canadian Maple Leaf, Chinese Panda and the South African Krugerrand.

The Krugerrand was first minted in 1967 and is the oldest of bullion coins.

Where To Purchase

Most Gold Bullion Coins can be purchased very easily from gold dealers online or offline. Other ways to acquire them are through auctions and private sellers.

Because of their liquidity, they are the investors choice when it comes to bullion products.
