In this video you’ll learn more about how to buy gold coins. Many new gold investors immediately think they should be buying gold bars. However, this mindset is typically because people associate buying gold with the gold bars you see on the TV. Most gold bar buyers are large investors who invest over one million dollars in their gold holdings in 400 ounce bars and have them stored in a depository. Smaller investors usually buy gold bullion coins because they allow for greater flexibility and availability. There are several popular coins to choose from. One is the Canadian Gold Mapleleaf by the Royal Canadian Mint which contains exactly one ounce of gold. Another choice for gold coin investing is the U.S American Eagle coin which is 90% and contains exactly one ounce of gold. There’s also the U.S Gold Buffalo which contains .9999 of fine 24-karat gold. These coins are actively traded and can be often purchased in amounts of ten or more for 5 1/4% to 5 3/4% over the current price of gold. These coins can also be easily sold at about 3 1/2% which makes investing in these coins affordable for the small investor. You can take delivery of your gold coins at home and have them on hand when you need them.
