The Different Kind Of Gold Coins To Invest In

George Sterling | Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Investing in gold is often considered a safe route because of the ever rising prices of gold. There are many ways you can invest in this precious metal, but today we are going to look at the types of gold coins available for investing into. The benefits of investing in gold coins are that you can easily liquidate your possessions whenever you want and you don’t even have to sell all your gold coins in order to earn a profit. Here is a list of gold coins that play a major part in gold coins investment:

American Gold Eagle

Available in 1/10 ounce, ¼ ounce, ½ ounce and full ounce coins, the American Gold Eagle is a popular choice among gold coin investors and gold coin collectors. The American Gold Eagle consists of a unique mixture of silver and copper with gold, this makes the gold resistant to wear and hence add numismatic value to it in addition to the value of gold.

The Mexican Libertad

The Mexican Libertad is available in 1/20 ounce or full ounce coins. These coins is rated .999 fine and boasts a design of popular volcanoes of Mexico and the coat of arms of Mexico.

The Australian Gold Nugget

The Australian Gold Nugget is an impressive gold coin that is issued by the Perth Mint. It is available in 1/20 ounce and an impressive 1 kilogram gold coin variant. When investing in this gold coin, it is often recommended to stay away from the 1 kilogram gold coin variant because in order to buy that, you will need to shell out a lot of money. Today a single kilogram of gold costs up to $55,000, so if you plan on liquidating your possessions at some point, always go for the 1/20 variant. Australian Gold Nugget receives a design change every year, adding numismatic value to the coin.

The Chinese Gold Panda

This gold coin is available as 1/20 ounce or full ounce variant. Just like the Australian gold nugget, the gold panda receives a design upgrade every year, giving it numismatic value.

The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf

The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is issued by the Royal Canadian Mint and is available in 1/25 ounce and full ounce coins. The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is considered the purest gold coin compared to other coins. Its fineness is rated at .99999. The gold coin is made out of pure gold mined from Canadian mines only.
