Setting this form of gold apart from bullion coins, these gold coins have a supply that is permanently limited, and actually decreasing through time from inadvertent damage and loss. The value of historic monetary gold coins can vary greatly depending on age, rarity, and condition, but, of course, its gold content inherently provides a floor value.

For the informed investor seeking gold diversification, these "collector" pre-1933 coins in uncirculated condition can often be purchased at prices comparable to bullion prices - especially when buying in volume from a well-connected gold brokerage rather than through smaller, specialty gold coin dealers. When the opportunity arises these coins should always be selected over common bullion gold coins.

Below is a sampling of gold coins from different countries and periods that illustrates the range of weight and fineness various coins may take.

Coin prices range depending on grade ("Fine" (heavily worn) to to grade "Uncirculated") and may vary higher for specific years of low mintage. Increases can be further encountered as the price of gold rises.
