What is the best gold coin to buy?

American Eagle Gold Coins

The United States Gold Bureau offers the American Eagle Gold Coins in both 1/10 oz and 1 oz denominations. The design of these coins are based off what is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful coins ever minted in the United States: Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ $20 gold piece, which was minted between 1907 and 1933.

These coins are legal tender and are the only gold bullion coins whose weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government. As a result, the Gold American Eagles can be added to your Precious Metal IRA.

Austrian Gold Coins

The Gold Vienna Philharmonics are among the most famous and sought-after gold coins in the world. First minted in 1989, it has had the honor of being the most purchased gold coin for a given year three times already in its short history. The 1 oz coin has a face value of 100 Euro and is one of the few gold coins ever minted to have ever been circulated under two separate currencies.

The design of the Gold Vienna Philharmonics is renowned around the world for being among the most beautiful coins ever created. Its obverse features several musical instruments performed in the Vienna Philharmonic, including cellos, violins and a harp. The reverse features an image of the great organ in the Golden Hall of the Philharmonic, along with the year and denomination.

Canadian Gold Coins

The United States Gold Bureau also offers the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf coins for your collection. Initially only proposed for a test period of three years, these gold bullion coins proved so popular that they are still being minted over thirty years later.

The Royal Canadian Mint takes great pride in creating coins with exacting purity and that’s what you’ll get from the Gold Canadian Maple Leafs, which has a .9999 fine purity.

South African Gold Coins

The South African Krugerrand was the initial gold bullion coin created for private investment. Created in 1967, the coins soon captured 90% of the gold coin market. However, sanctions that were placed on apartheid-era South Africa spurred other countries to develop their own gold bullion coins which led to such coins as the Gold Canadian Maple Leaf and the American Gold Eagle.
