Gold Bullion Coins


Gold coins of sovereign nations are issued by government mints throughout the world. They are valuable due to both their bullion content and scarcity. Once the annual mintage for a specific gold coin is complete, it will never be produced again exactly like this. Gold coins are also popular with investors who want to buy bullion from a well-known and respected government mint that often also has a long and distinguished history.

Gold Bullion Coins generally are legal tender in the country that produces them. They are usually available in a variety of different denominations from 1/20 oz up to gigantic sizes of 12 oz or more. Their price and value is based on both their gold content and their collectability. The premium that is charged for a coin's collectability depends on such factors as the year and place of production, mintage numbers and the condition of the coin.

The selection of coins that is introduced here is limited to the most popular and most commonly traded gold bullion coins in the world. Hover your mouse cursor over the coin image to turn the coin around.
