Buy Gold Bullion
There is no precious metal in the world coveted more than gold. The famous “yellow metal” has been a standard by which wealth is measured for centuries, and as civilizations took the first steps out of the Dark Ages and into international trade in the Middle Ages and beyond, gold was there as the standard unit of commerce used by nations and people who spoke different languages. Despite language and cultural barriers, everyone understands the value of gold. Today, gold bullion remains a primary vehicle for private investment and the protection of wealth. The Abveenacity Bullion catalog contains a wide array of gold bullion products, some of which you can learn more about below.
Gold Bullion Coins
Many investors buying gold turn to gold bullion coins from sovereign mints. Gold coins are a popular choice because the weight and purity of the coins are backed by a central bank and sovereign. Moreover, gold coins are produced on an annual basis to meet consumer demand, so there’s rarely a shortage of gold coins available to those investors who want to purchase the precious metal in this form. The following are some of the most popular gold coins for sale:
- American Gold Eagle: The most popular American gold coin, the Gold Eagle features Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ design of Lady Liberty from the $20 Gold Double Eagle on its obverse side. The reverse includes a design from Miley Busiek introduced in 1986 exclusively for this coin series. Gold Eagles are available with 22-karat gold in weights of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz.
- American Gold Buffalo: The Gold Buffalo coin revives the designs from Buffalo Nickel design by James Earle Fraser. The coin was the first-ever 24-karat gold coin from the United States Mint and is available only in 1 oz gold. The obverse features a right-profile portrait of a Native American figure with an American bison in left-profile relief on the reverse of the coins.
- Austrian Gold Philharmonic: Austria’s leading bullion coin, the Gold Philharmonic features the same designs on the obverse and reverse each year. The Gold Philharmonic is the only European gold coin that bridged the gap from pre-Euro to the Eurozone economy. Issued first in 1989, the coins originally had face values in Austrian Shillings and now have Euros as the listed face value. Gold Philharmonics have .9999 pure gold and available weights include 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz, and 1/25 oz options. The designs come from Austrian Mint Chief Engraver Thomas Pesendorfer.
- Australian Gold Kangaroo: The Australian Gold Kangaroo is the longest-running gold bullion coin from Australia. Introduced by the Perth Mint in 1986 as the Gold Nugget, since 1990 the coins have been available with new designs of the kangaroo on the reverse. Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse each year in designs that are updated regularly to reflect her age. Each one has .9999 pure gold content.
Gold coins are struck with a minimum purity level of .999 gold, while coins such as the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and Australian Gold Kangaroo are issued with .9999 pure gold. Most gold bullion coins have a face value issued by a central bank with that nation’s fiat currency, such as the US Dollar ($) for the American Gold Eagle or the Pound Sterling (£) for the British Gold Britannia. Finally, gold bullion coins are often available in weights beyond simply 1 oz gold. The American Gold Eagle features fractional weights of 1/2, 1/4, and 1/10 oz, while the Chinese Gold Panda is offered in 1 Gram, 3 Gram, 8 Gram, and 15 Gram weights in addition to its standard 30 Gram coins.
