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


The question often arises whether to buy gold coins or bars.

Most high-capital investors in Iowa City invest in gold bars because of their lower premium over spot price. If you plan to hold gold as a long-term investment and high-volume gold diversification, buying gold bars is preferred.

Investors in Iowa City who buy in small quantities invest in gold coins because they are easier to manage and store. They carry legal tender values, easy liquidity, and provide portfolio flexibility.

These are some of our well-known gold coins and gold bars available on the market today:

  • American Silver Eagle coins
  • South African Krugerrands
  • Royal Canadian Mint Gold Maple Leafs
  • 1-Oz. & 10-Oz. PAMP & Perth Mint bars
  • 100-Gram 99.99 gold bars
  • 1-Oz., 10-Oz., & 100-gram gold bars for IRAs
