Gold coins and gold bullion bars maintain their value more than cash or stocks as prices fluctuate during times of economic uncertainty.

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


While there are differences between gold coins and gold bars, investors must buy gold bullion products as a safer option for realizing a future return on investment.

Folsom investors prefer to purchase gold coins rather than gold bars, especially if they buy in small quantities. They are easy to manage and store, offer portfolio flexibility and easy liquidity, carry legal tender values, and do not require assaying to define their veracity.

Gold bars are gaining in popularity for gold investment because their premiums are significantly lower than gold coins and should be a primary consideration when choosing between bullion coins or bars for investment. Investors consider gold bars a good choice for high-volume gold diversification. They are a long-term or IRA preference.

The following is a list of our most well-known gold coins and gold bars traded on the market today:

  • U.S. Mint Gold Eagle coins
  • South African Krugerrands
