Gold Coins

  • American Gold Eagles: The official gold bullion coin of the United States is the American Gold Eagle. This coin program started in 1986 and has been issuing new coins every year since then. These coins underwent a design change in the latter half of 2021 and changed the family of eagles’ design to a portrait of an eagle.
  • American Gold Buffalos: Also struck annually by the US Mint is the American Gold Buffalo. The design for these coins comes from the Buffalo Nickel in 1913, designed by James Earle Fraser. A Native American male is on the obverse and an American bison is on the reverse. These coins have been issued annually since 2006.
  • Australian Gold Kangaroos: This series, also referred to as the Australian Gold Nugget series, debuted in 1987. It wasn’t until 1989 that a kangaroo first appeared. Notably, this series also issues proof releases that have different designs than the BU version.
  • Austrian Gold Philharmonics: This series was first released in 1989 and quickly became one of the best-selling gold coins in all of Europe. The design of the obverse and reverse has remained the same since 1989, which features a collection of instruments on the reverse and the Great Pipe Organ on the obverse.
  • British Gold Britannias: The official gold bullion coin of Great Britain is the British Gold Britannia. The series made its debut in 1987, however, Britannia herself has been seen on coinage since around 119 AD. These coins are struck annually by the Royal Mint and always feature an image of Britannia herself on the reverse along with the reigning British monarch on the obverse.
  • Canadian Gold Maple Leafs: Introduced in 1979, these coins were the first gold bullion coin available to the public since the debut of the South African Gold Krugerrand. Coins have been issued every year since and have always featured the sugar maple leaf on the reverse, designed by Walter Ott.
  • Mexican Gold Libertads: These coins have a unique history that dates back to 1981. They were released sporadically in the beginning but have been issued annually since 2002. The Mexican coat of arms is on the obverse while Winged Victory is shown on the reverse. These coins are also available in other strikes such as proof and reverse proof.
  • South African Gold Krugerrands: The first gold bullion coin that was made available to the public for investment purposes was the South African Gold Krugerrand. These coins have featured the same obverse and reverse since their debut in 1967. Paul Kruger is on the obverse while a Springbok antelope is on the reverse.

Gold Bars

Most mints, private and government-owned, are releasing Gold Bars. However, a few stand tall among the rest in terms of popular gold bar producers.

  • Argor Heraeus: One top name is Argor Heraeus, a Switzerland-based company established in 1951. While they produce several minted ingots and cast bars, they’re well-known for their Kinebars which have a holographic embossing element on the reverse.
  • Geiger: Geiger Edelmetalle is the oldest silver trading house in Germany. They’re most well-known for their line of square-shaped gold bars which show the Schloss Guldengossa on the obverse. These bars are available in sizes ranging from 1 gram to 100 grams.
  • PAMP Suisse: One of the most innovative names in terms of gold bars is PAMP Suisse. The Swiss-based mint is known for its incredible designs such as Fortuna, Rosa, and even their lunar series of gold bars.
  • Sunshine Minting: Among the top private mints in America is Sunshine Minting. Sunshine Minting is well-known for its security features such as MintMark SI which can be found on the reverse of their gold bars. A security feature is shown when you view the reverse with a Sunshine Decoder Lens.
  • Valcambi: Another top name from Switzerland is Valcambi. Founded in 1962, Valcambi is well-known for their CombiBar which is a large gold bar, that can be broken off into several smaller sizes without compromising the overall metal content or purity.

Gold Rounds

Gold Rounds are another popular option. Rounds have the appearance of a gold coin but have no financial backing and thus have no legal tender. This allows for rounds to have a lower premium and much higher mintage caps.

  • Crypto Commemorative: This series showcases the logos of popular blockchains and cryptocurrencies on the obverse. Each round is available in a 5 gram weight and arrives in protective plastic flips.
  • The Holy Land Mint: One popular option is the line of gold rounds from The Holy Land Mint. These rounds, available in various sizes, feature the Dove of Peace on the obverse. An image extremely popular for The Holy Land Mint shows a Dove holding an olive branch, flying over the walls of Jerusalem.
