Buy Bullion Coins and Bars

“Bullion” refers to precious metals priced and sold based on the intrinsic value of their weight. Not every coin is meant to be used as everyday currency, but that doesn’t mean it has no value. While you’re not likely to take them to the supermarket, you’ll find the value in buying bullion coins and bars to be as an inflation-resistant, safe haven store of value (particularly as the purchasing power of paper money decays over time).

Along with investor favorite bullion coins such as the Gold Gyrfalcon, the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf, and the American Buffalo Gold Coin, bullion could refer to bars and rounds – of which we have a selection in each of the precious metals. (Precious metals rounds are coin-shaped, but come from refiners rather than national mints – and have no face value, so cannot be considered coins.)

Investing in Bullion

Those looking to purchase precious metals generally come in two flavors – collectors and investors. Collectors tend to be interested in particular coins, focusing on getting individual years and designs to complete a series. They’re usually more interested in numismatic coins due to their histories and collectability. Investors, on the other hand, are focused on just two components of precious metals: purity and value. The purest gold, silver, platinum, and palladium coins on the market are bullion coins, and their value is directly associated with the market value of the metal they’re made from. If you’re interested in investing in precious metals, in other words, you’ll need to acquire bullion coins and bars. Give our precious metals experts a call today at (800) 355-2116 and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Should I buy gold bullion coins or bars?

If you’re concerned about inflation and would like to preserve your wealth during your retirement, investing into gold bullion is widely considered to be a great way to store value in an uninflatable, unhackable and internationally-valued form. You can opt to buy gold bullion outright, taking physical possession of it yourself, or you can open a self-directed precious metals IRA and diversify with gold, silver, platinum, or palladium bullion using the money you’ve already saved for retirement. (Give us a call to find out how.) When it comes to what kind of bullion to buy – whether it’s coins or bars – that’s entirely up to you. Many Birch Gold Group customers prefer bullion coins due to their government guarantee of weight and purity. Some hedge their bets by diversifying between different precious metals as well as different forms of bullion.

What is the best 1 oz gold coin to buy?

The title of “best 1 oz gold coin” is somewhat subjective to the whims of the market. The price of coins is primarily  determined by the market value of the metal they’re made out of (the “spot” price), plus fabrication, transportation and insurance costs, with an added premium based on supply and demand. Every year, dozens of trade groups and numismatic organizations award “best coin of the year” prizes, and the world’s sovereign mints compete fiercely for every prize. There’s a lot of innovation in modern minting, even though it’s a craft over 2,000 years old. Having said all that, if you were to poll Birch Gold Group customers, you’d quickly find they firmly believe the best 1 oz gold coin to buy is the 1 oz American gold eagle. It’s partially a patriotic decision, partially a design decision – and mostly a simple economic decision. If you can’t decide which 1 oz gold coin is best for you to buy, we suggest you start with our #1 seller.
