Small gold coins are growing in popularity as the gold prices rise. Gold in the quarter ounce size is within reach of virtually any investor and coins this size make good sense. Demand for these smaller coins will only continue to rise as larger coins become less and less affordable as gold prices rise.
The 1/4 oz size also fits great in a barter stash of metal, where having a range of sizes and values will make it easier to do transactions from small to large.
The problem with buying “fractional” size gold is that the premiums for coins this size can get a little steep. That is why we are proud to offer 1/4 oz gold coins from major world mints at a big discount. We buy lots of coins produced by sovereign mints on the secondary market and then we re-sell them…cheap.
These are coins from well-recognized world Mints – Australia’s Perth Mint, the Austrian Mint, the Royal Canadian Mint, the Chinese Mint, even the US Mint. Every one is in uncirculated condition and fully guaranteed for weight and purity by the respective government which issued it.
In many cases, these coins were initially offered with much higher premiums to people who hoped to cash in on them as collectibles. Like most “modern rarities”, they didn’t work as a collectibles investment. But they will work perfectly for you as a gold investment.
They are official, legal tender coins. They are traded by dealers everywhere and will be easy to buy and easy to sell. They just aren’t one of the big four coins; the American Eagle, Krugerrand, Maple Leaf or Kangaroo.
While the dates and designs will be random, the savings are certain.
