Invest in Gold Coins or Gold Bars – What’s the Difference?


If you plan to buy and hold physical gold long-term, investing in gold bars may be the best option for you.

For investors in Ameswho buy in small quantities, gold coins are easier to manage and store than gold bars.

Gold coins carry legal tender values, provide portfolio flexibility, and are easier to liquidate. Gold bars offer lower premiums over spot price, are a good choice for high-volume gold diversification, and more ounces for less cost.

These are a few of the most well-known gold coins and gold bars on the market today for Ames investors:

  • U.S. Mint Gold Eagles
  • South African Krugerrands
  • Royal Canadian Mint Gold Maple Leafs
  • One-Ounce and ten-Ounce PAMP & Perth Mint bars
  • 100-Gram 99.99 gold bars
  • 1-Oz., 10-Oz., and 100-gram gold bars for IRAs

Whether you buy gold coins or gold bars, we recommend only investing in gold bullion products as a safer option for achieving a future return on investment. Call today or visit us online to speak with a consultant to help you understand gold price trends.
