What is a Gold Coin Worth Today?

The precious metal market is connected to other spheres, although it manages to achieve a massive deal of sovereignty.

While the price of gold is separate from the stock market, it is still partially affected by it and other aspects, such as recession, geopolitical issues, etc.

Likewise, gold coins price fluctuates regularly, as it is intertwined with various other factors that influence it.

The value of coin changes daily, though the value of gold isn’t the only strand in the matter. It also depends on the type, purity, and rarity of the coin.

As such, gold coins offer greater resale potential than some other precious metals, and their accrued value over time is one of the primary motifs for getting one.

Gold Coin Mints

United States Mint

Some of the most sought after, highly liquid gold coins are issued by the United States Mint, which is the recognized sovereign mint of the United States of America.

The most popular U.S gold coins we offer are: American Gold Eagle

This coin debuted in 1986, and it is perhaps the most recognized mintage of the United States Mint (just like the eagle is one of the main symbols of the United States).

With the beautiful design of Lady Liberty holding a torch on the front, and the eagle soaring above a nest on the back, you will find the American Gold Eagle in 1, 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10 oz size.

The most popular instances of Gold Eagle coins that we sell are 1oz gold coins. Its purity is 91.67% of the 22-karat coins gold that comes from American resources, as guaranteed by the law.

  • Gold American Buffalo

Gold buffalo is a more recent gold bullion coin from the U.S., first produced in 2006, and these are the first pure gold, 24-karat coins.

Based on the famous Buffalo nickel, it features Indian Head on the obverse and the American Bison on the reverse.

The reason why American Gold Buffalo is an excellent choice to buy is its low mintage, which makes this coin a rare one, whereas the demand is considerable.

Royal Canadian Mint

  • Canadian Gold Maple Leaf

If any coin is the staple of Canadian culture, then it’s the Gold Maple Leaf, dating back to 1979. They are available in different sizes (1, 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10 oz), and their iconic design features the leaf and Queen Elizabeth II.

  • Canadian Call of the Wild Series

Apart from this gold coin, you can find equally appealing Canadian gold bullions with a symbolic animal theme, such as  Gold ElkHowling Wolf, Growling Cougar gold coin, and more.

Royal Australian Mint & Perth Mint

You’ll find options from both these mints, located in Canberra and Western Australia, respectively.

  • Lunar Series

Coins with lunar series themes dominate the fare in the Australian section, with some rather valuable and interesting instances, such as Year of the Snake, Year of the Pig, and Year of the Moose.

  • Gold Kangaroo

There are also various versions of Gold Kangaroo, the national symbol of Australia, ranging in size from 1/10 oz to as much as 1kg!

UK Royal Mint

  • British Gold Britannia

The most famous instance of British mintages is Gold Britannia, which was first introduced in 1987, with varying modern designs of Britannia.

These coins are issued in 1/10, 1/4, 1/2, and 1 oz sizes made of 22-karat fine gold.  

South African Mint

  • South African Gold Krugerrand

Without any doubt, Krugerrand is the most recognized gold coin amongst gold bullion dealers, as it was the number one choice for investors for many years. It still carries a premium value and is considered legal tender in South Africa.

It features Paul Kruger, the South African Republic's honorary president on the obverse, and Springbok antelope, the national symbol, on the reverse. 

Austrian Mint

  • Modern Re-strikes

We feature popular Austrian Re-strikes that date back to the currency reform in 1892. These are wanted by many collectors and have a lot of future selling potential.

Some instances are 1 Ducat and 100 Corona (Latin for Crown).

  • Austrian Gold Philharmonic

There’s also the legendary Austrian Gold Philharmonic, also known as the Vienna bullion coin, that carries an immense cultural value in addition to the wealth status.

Bavarian Mint

  • Somalia Gold Elephant

Issued in Germany on behalf of Somalia, this gold coin has a very popular status for its purity and unique design.  

The hallmark of the Somalian Gold Elephant is that the design of the reverse of the coin is annually changed.

People’s Republic of China Mint
  • Chinese Gold Panda

The most recognized gold coin for sale from the Mint of China is the Chinese Gold Panda. An interesting fact is that the design of the panda on the back of this gold coin changes yearly (except for 2001 and 2002 editions that are the same).

Swiss Mint

  • Gold 20 FRANCS

Although not so popular on the market, the Switzerland Gold 20 FRANCS coin that goes by the informal name “Vreneli” is a legal tender coin and deserves mention.

Mexican Mint

Moreover, they are recognized as investment vehicles for one’s Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and are free from an obligation of following the Internal Revenue Service Form 1099-B procedure for transactions.
