It is important to realize that there is a difference between gold bullion and circulating gold coins. So, what are the differences?
- Gold Bullion: Gold bullion would be defined as gold that is distributed for its value as an investment. So, 1 ounce American Gold Eagles (AGE) is one ounce of pure gold. Although these do have some collector value as well, they were produced to easily set aside gold in large quantities. Gold Bullion can also include items like 1 Kilo gold bars, 10 ounce gold bars, and more. Anything that weights 1 Kilogram (1,000 grams, 32.15 troy ounces) or more is considered institutional gold. Individuals can purchase it, but it would require a large sum of money.
- Circulating Gold: Circulating gold coins are more commonly called “Pre-1933” gold when speaking about United States coins. These are coins that were spent for their face value at a point in time. Today, their value far surpasses the face value. For example, as of May 9, 2023, a $20 Saint Gaudens Gold piece (face value of $20 USD) is actually worth $1,900. These circulating coins are often not pure gold, or 0.999 fine gold. Instead, they are 90% gold coins.
- The Crossover Items: It is important to note that there are some items that we would consider to be “crossover” items. For example, $20 Saint Gaudens from 1924 are very common, even in perfect condition. Due to their high mintage and hoarding, there are more of them on the market nowadays. So, these would move from the Circulating Gold category to the Gold Bullion category since most dealers will be paying for the precious metal content of the coin.
