Below you will find popular low price gold coins that virtually all gold coin dealers and bullion owners around the world both recognize and trust.

Buying gold coins, which gold coins should you buy?

Since 1977 Kitco has been buying gold in the form of scrap, gold coins, and gold bars. We are not only the world’s #1 gold news website but we are also a trusted online gold coin dealer.

Gold coins, by industry definition, are struck and guaranteed by a sovereign government gold mint.

Often buying gold coins at the lowest price per ounce possible is a goal of gold bullion coin buyers.

If buying the most ounces of gold bullion coins for your capital is your main goal, consider perhaps buying gold coins like the Gold Maple Leafs from the Canadian Mint, or Gold Krugerrand coins from the South African Mint, or Gold Kangaroo coins made by the Australian Mint as respected options.

If you believe the best gold coin to buy is the most popular gold coin in terms of overall sales volumes, then perhaps buying the American Gold Eagle coin is your best option, with the Gold Maple Leaf coin a close second choice.

Buy gold coins with confidence from Kitco Metals as our gold coin dealer inventory is government guaranteed, genuine and highly recognized amongst bullion coin buyers and sellers.

Gold coins are typically made of 22k or 24k fine gold and come in various sizes and shapes. The range in gold coin sizes typically varies from 1 oz to 1 gram gold coins.

By industry definition, gold coins are struck by government mints and usually have a legal tender face value from the nation or union from where they originate. In contrast gold bullion bars are both struck by private mints and government mints.

Often investors are willing to pay a slightly higher price for gold coins given their ease of recognition, liquid two-way markets, and government guarantee or backing.

Gold Coin Prices

The 22k gold coin and 24k gold coin price is always influenced by the fluctuating spot gold price.

Typically the asking gold coin price (what a dealer is selling the gold coin at) hovers a few percentage points above the live spot price of gold.

Generally the buy-back gold coin price (what a dealer is buying the coin at) hovers at or just above the fluctuating live spot price of gold.

Why buy Gold Coins?

Since about the year 2000, there has been an overall increase in gold coin prices in virtually all currencies as well as in the amount of individuals physically buying gold coins.

Since the financial crisis of 2008, the trend of online gold dealers selling gold coins and gold bars to the investing public has increased dramatically.

It has become quite common for investors to buy gold coins in order to better diversify risks to their wealth and investment portfolios.

Since 1977, Kitco has been both selling and buying gold coins and other physical precious metals. We are the world’s #1 gold news website and a trusted online silver and gold dealer.

Finding trusted local or online gold coin dealers who promptly deliver quality gold coins and bullion bars at fair and reasonable prices can be difficult. 

We have been working in the gold bullion industry for over 40 years and seen many local and online gold coin dealers come and go.

When buying gold coins online from gold coin dealers, the most important factor to consider is the experience and track record of the gold coin dealer you are considering from where to buy gold coins from.
