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


Is investing in gold coins or gold bars the right choice for you?

When you invest in gold coins or bars, you are protected no matter what happens worldwide to the stock market! Is it better to invest in gold bars or coins to diversify your portfolio? We will provide a little insight into the differences.

Buying gold coins is the simplest way to purchase gold, and is preferred by investors buying in small quantities. They are a secure financial investment, easy to liquidate, offer portfolio flexibility, and carry legal tender status.

Highly capitalized buyers in Urbandale prefer gold bars because of their lower premium over spot price. Buying gold bars is less costly when investing in gold to increase your portfolio.

We offer both forms of physical gold for Urbandale investors:

  • U.S. Mint Gold Eagle coins
