Bullion Coins Bullion coins tend to be the most well-known coins on the market and include the American Eagle, Canadian Maple Leaf, South African Krugerrand, Australian Philharmonic, and Chinese Gold Panda. These coins trade for their metallic content (the paper gold price plus a small premium). Most are available in sizes ranging from 1/10oz to 1oz. These coins tend to be popular for short-term investors.
Investment Coins Investment coins, not to be confused with collector coins, trade on a daily basis around the world on a purely supply and demand basis. Unlike bullion, prices are not necessarily subject to contract trading of paper gold, but rather subject to the physical supply and demand of coins. Investment coins have consistently outperformed bullion during bull markets. These coins may be ideal for longer-term investors with a holding term of more than two year.
Collector Coins Throughout history the wealthy have parked assets in true rarities. In fact, throughout civilization family wealth has been preserved in the form or rarities such as pieces of art and rare coins even when societies and economies were in chaos. Our representatives have sold some of the rarest and finest coins in the world that are true legacies for families and estates. Unlike rare art, individuals can enter the rare coin market even if they do not have hundreds of thousands to invest and buy/sell spreads on collector coins are minimal compared to other forms of rarities.
Dated Foreign Coins Dated foreign coins such as European Francs and Guilders, British Sovereign, and Austrian Ducats are popular coins due to their small size, affordability, and freedom from some of the regulation associated with gold bullion. Investors should take note that these coins often sell at very high prices relative to their metallic content but do not necessarily retrieve this premium when resold.
