Few people buy gold bars because of two main reasons:
1. They are expensive
2. They can’t match the appearance of gold coins
I belong to that category of ‘few people’ and I would choose the reason number 2 as mine.
I am not a collector of gold coins but I buy once in way. Recently, I saw a stunning portfolio of Australian gold coins possessed by a parent of one of my students.
His latest purchase was 2011 Australian Year of the Rabbit. When I took it on my hands, I guessed it weighed about 2 ounces. It must have cost him a fortune.
He informed me that in his opinion, next to the U.S. Mint, the Australian mint is producing the most beautiful gold coins.
I wonder if the U.S. Gold Bureau would agree to this judgment.
United States Gold Bureau is America’s best dealer of gold, silver and platinum coins.
