The world’s only unique gold coin?

June 30, 2019 by Buy-Gold.Link in Gold, Rare Coins - No Comments

A few months ago, I wrote an article about a historic British gold coin that I thought at the time to be the world’s rarest gold coin. Only three specimens are known to exist of the British Double Florin which is about as rare as coins can be. A few days ago however, news came ... Continue reading

While searching online for a topic for our next blog article, I came across the website of the Worldwide Bi-Metallic Collectors Club (WBCC), the self-proclaimed first Internet Coin Club that was founded all the way back on the 14th of September 1996. It specializes in the collection of bimetallic and even trimetallic coins (including bimetallic ... Continue reading

If you don’t know who or what a Gruffalo is, you are not alone. I didn’t know either until today (February 19th) when I saw this headline that announced the sale of three different Gruffalo coins (a gold, silver and base metal version) by Britain’s Royal Mint. As it turns out, “The Gruffalo” is the ... Continue reading

It is always fun for a collector of precious metal coins to obtain historic coins, even more so if they are from a country that no longer exists at all or at least not in the same form. In today’s blog article, I’d like to introduce a type of historic gold coin that was minted ... Continue reading

The Rarest Gold Coin

January 30, 2019 by Buy-Gold.Link in Gold, Rare Coins - No Comments

Have you ever wondered what the rarest gold coin is? With that I mean a gold coin that was actually in circulation and not just a pattern coin. For pattern coins it is after all not unusual that only a few specimens exist. However, the gold coin that I want to introduce today must have ... Continue reading

With Christmas now behind us and New Year’s Eve just a day away, another holiday that is getting more and more popular each year is already casting its shadow.

Holographic Coins

If you primarily buy precious metal coins for the purpose of investment, it is best to choose brilliant uncirculated bullion coins. These coins will be available for low premiums above the precious metal spot price and this will allow you to buy the biggest precious metal amount for the lowest possible price. However, precious metal ... Continue reading

Colonial US gold coins

At a time when “quantitative easing” is a common measure to increase the money supply, when banks create new money out of thin air through lending, when the US national debt is steadily increasing and when paper currency is no longer backed by anything (like it was during the time of the gold standard), it ...

Diamond Gold Coins

If you buy gold bullion coins for the purpose of investment, it is best to stick to the regular brilliant uncirculated coins as their premiums are generally the lowest. If you buy proof coins, you will already have to pay an additional collectibility premium. That is fine for numismatists but not for investors who want ... Continue reading

Rare US gold coins

One thing that coin buyers take for granted these days is that one year’s issue of a coin differs from another year’s issue only by the year of mintage. That was not always the case in the past. In fact, many historic US gold coins have special rare versions that differ from the standard version ... Continue reading
