What you should know about BUY -ING or SELL -ING Gold Bullion:
What is Gold Bullion?
Bullion is refined gold, in a high purity state, generally in the form of minted coins and various sizes of bars.
Taking Home the Gold – What is it worth?
The value is primarily based on weight, the same as other commodities like crude oil and natural gas. It reflects what a precious metal is selling on the stock exchange for. This market index price is called the spot price. It can fluctuate several times a day! However, it is the most current price available for any specific type of metal. The spot price is reported in Troy ounces. However, gold bullion, can also be sold based on the melt price. A melt price is determined by the amount of precious metals in a coin or round.
The spot price is most commonly used to determine value of items that weigh one-ounce – whether it be a coin or bar, there is an identical value for both. Meaning the spot price and melt price are essentially the same on a one-ounce coin or bar. However, if you have a coin with .5 ounces gold in it, then it would be based off the melt price, as it weighs less than the spot price indexing. Examples include: ½ ounce American Gold Eagles, ¼ ounce American Gold Eagles, and 1/10th ounce American Gold Eagles.
Okay, so what are premiums?
Premiums are essentially little price bumps for rare, or considered more valuable items. A coin premium is the additional cost of a bullion coin above and beyond the market value of the precious metal commodity it contains. However, a certified rare coin in near mint condition can have a sizable premium over spot. Also, to note, unusual demand for a specific coin type can drive its premium level significantly higher.
How are the Spot & Melt Purchase Prices Calculated?
If you are interested in buying the 1 oz. American Gold Eagles – Brilliant Uncirculated listed on our Online Shop.
We currently are using Kitco Bid Price as our price for gold, silver, platinum, and other precious metals. Call or stop by today for the most accurate spot price. The following formula would be used to calculate what you would pay for the 1 oz. American Gold Eagle:
(Current Spot Price + Premium) x Weight = Spot Purchase Price
Now, let’s say you are interested in the 1/2 oz. American Gold Eagles – Brilliant Uncirculated instead?
(Current Spot Price x Weight) + Premium = Melt Purchase Price
Well, wait a minute! You added the premium to the spot price before multiplying it by the weight and then switched gears on the melt price. Yes, yes I did! That is because the premium is in addition to the spot price, as long as it is over one-ounce. Yet, with the over melt price, the premium is in addition to the spot price based on the weight less than one-ounce. A little confusing, I know. But once you start buying or selling gold bullion, you’ll catch on quick – I promise!

Gold bars have been around since way before our ancestors even set foot on American soil. Gold coins on the other hand, go even further back! 600 B.C. being the most notably recorded date. However, investment quality bars and coins are different. Let’s explore the Gold Bullion Coins.
Know the Difference Between Gold Bullion Bars and Gold Bullion Coins
While all forms of pure gold have significant monetary value, not all investment-quality gold is equal. From an investment perspective, investors wanting to add the physical product that tracks the price of gold may wish to avoid gold numismatics. Investment-quality coins often feature attractive designs, have historic value, and may have less gold in them (i.e. 1/2 oz. American Gold Eagle), but still, cost more due to their numismatic value.
For instance, one of the most valuable gold coins sold in recent years was a 1933 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. It sold for $7.6 million! The 1933 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle gold coin was minted in 1933 with a Face Value of $20.
Although 445,500 coins of this Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle were minted in 1933, none were ever officially circulated. All but two were ordered to be melted down. In 1933 President Franklin D. Roosevelt halted private gold ownership in excess of $100 in an attempt to put a stop to the banking crisis. Congress followed with the Gold Reserve Act of 1934, which outlawed the circulation and private possession of U.S. gold coins for general circulation. The only exception being collector coins.
Yet, somehow, twenty of these Double Eagles managed to survive. Nine of the recovered twenty coins were destroyed. Just ONE of the remaining is privately owned. Thus, making them extremely rare AND extremely valuable gold coins! Definitely worth more than their original $20.00 Face Value now.
The Great Gold Melt = Rare Gold Coins
Buyers and collectors of gold coins have a basic choice between classic U.S. gold coins widely known as Pre-1933 US Gold Coins that circulated in the United States until that year, and modern gold bullion coins. What makes Pre-1933 Gold Coins different than modern gold bullion coins? On April 5, 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt put Executive Order 1602 on the table! Basically, private ownership of gold bullion, including bars and coins, was outlawed! Roosevelt’s order stated that “the hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States” was “forbidden.” By 1934, millions of coins were melted down because of the Gold Reserve Act of 1934. Coins that survived have become very valuable due to their rarity.
Fast track to 1974, President Gerald R. Ford, repealed the gold limitation and thus, enter the modern gold bullion coin.
What is the most invested/traded modern gold coin? Well, that would be the American Gold Eagle!
Following the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985, the American Gold Eagles first made their debut in 1986. Issued in burnished, uncirculated, and proof finishes. They are available in 1 oz, 1⁄2 oz, 1⁄4 oz, and 1⁄10 oz coins.
The American Buffalo, also known as a gold buffalo, is a 24-karat, or .999, bullion coin first offered for sale by the United States Mint on June 22, 2006. It debuted after the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005.
The Australian Gold Nugget, is not just a nugget of gold. It is an actual coin! First minted in 1986 by the Perth Mint. The Australian Gold Nugget coin is available in 1⁄20 oz, 1⁄10 oz, 1⁄4 oz, 1⁄2 oz, 1 oz, 2 oz, 10 oz, and 1 kg of 24 carat gold. They are one of the few gold legal tenders in Australia to change their design every year.
In 1996, Australia debuted their Australian Gold Lunar series. Designed to honor the 12-year Zodiac based on Chinese influence on the economy. Beginning with the Year of the Mouse (Rat) in 1996, and ending with the Year of Pig in 2007. However, in 2008, the Perth Mint introduced the Lunar Series II. However, these vary greatly from the original series. In addition to gold bullion and proof versions of the coin, special commemorative coins were struck, high-relief proofs, and even colorized designs that added visual brilliance to each of the coins produced by the Perth Mint. Additionally, this year – 2020 – marks the beginning of a New Lunar start. The Perth Mint has celebrated it with a Lunar III series.
Originally minted in 1989 by the Austrian Mint, the Austrian Gold Philharmonic is available in two sizes; 1⁄2 oz and 1 oz. The Austrian Gold Philharmonic bullion coin is the only coin that has a face value in euros to date. This Philharmonic coin is one of the world’s best selling coins in 1990. By 2012, there had been more than 14 million Philharmonics sold WORLDWIDE. Can you guess how many TONS of gold that is? Over 329 tons of gold bullion!
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf was first issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 1979. The Royal Canadian Mint presented the Gold Maple Leaf at a point in time when coin investors had only one choice: the South African Gold Krugerrand. The coins were more than just the second gold bullion coins introduced for private investment. They also became the first-ever .9999 pure gold (24-karat) coins in the world when the mint increased gold purity in the coins in November 1982.
First released in 1982, the China Shenzhen Mint’s Gold Panda series is now among the most popular coins worldwide. Initially, they only offered sizes of 1⁄10 oz, 1⁄4 oz, 1⁄2 oz, and 1 oz. However, the 1⁄20 oz quickly made an appearance. On the gold bullion version of the Gold Panda, the design on the reverse side of the coin, has been changed EVERY year since it’s first release in 1982.
The Krugerrand first appeared in 1967. It was a time in which the public first started investing in personal gold coin portfolios. Derived from the former President of South Africa, Paul Kruger, and the rand, a South African unit of currency. The United States saw a high importation of Krugerrand coins between 1974-1985. 22 million coins to be exact! It is available in 1⁄10 oz, 1⁄4 oz, 1⁄2 oz, and 1 oz sizes.
