For many centuries, gold has been considered one of the most valuable metals. Empires were created and collapsed, states changed their borders and names, exchange rates fell and crises occurred in the economy, and gold remained the most stable object of investment. Today, deposits in precious metals continue to be relevant. Most often, gold coins and bullion are chosen for investments.
Anyone can invest in gold coins. The purchase of such units does not cause difficulty and is in many ways even easier than the purchase of bullion. Coins can be stored as you want, for example, in your safe at home, while bullion will most likely have to be left in a bank cell. As a rule, investment coins are sold in special plastic boxes. It is not necessary to take them out, since, in fact, they do not act as a means of payment. This precaution is necessary to preserve the original type of product, since losses and other defects affect the cost.
Usually investment coins are minted in a large circulation. Therefore, for numismatists, they are not of great interest. However, there are rare copies, such as a "coin" with a face value of $1 million with a portrait of Elizabeth II, minted by the Canadian Mint. It exists in the singular. You can buy investment coins in public, private banks or in specialized stores. For example, in ours - KALITA.GOLD.
Online sale of gold coins is not uncommon for a long time. This is convenient, since you can not limit yourself to the "choice" offered by the banks of your city, and invest in copies of other issuing states. The main danger when buying copies over the Internet is the risk of running into fraudsters. Therefore, you need to choose the store carefully. Give preference to sellers who have long been on the market. Our store is owned by KALITA-FINANCE, which has existed for more than 20 years. We guarantee our customers integrity and transparency of the transaction.
To buy an investment coin, send the selected copy to the "cart" and apply. Then you need to wait for the call of the manager, who will confirm the order, reserve the coin and invoice for payment. Important! The final price is formed precisely at the time of billing, taking into account the current quotation. You can pay and get an order in two ways: in our office, or with delivery to your destination. When you choose a delivery, the prepayment is paid in full by bank transfer. All coins are insured before shipment. We officially confirm the authenticity of each copy from our catalog. All of them are thoroughly tested, including using special equipment.
The denomination of an investment coin, as a rule, is not equal to its value. The price of a copy depends primarily on the amount of metal used to make it, and the exchange value of 1 gram of this metal in the currency of your country. The price of 1 gram, in turn, depends on the cost of an ounce of gold. This is a long-established order, according to which all precious metals are traded on exchanges in Troy ounces. One triple ounce is 31.1035 grams.
The price of the coin also includes work on its manufacture, packaging, delivery, etc. Therefore, the cost of each instance is on average 5-10% higher than the price of the metal contained in it. In professional circles, this mark-up is called a "premium to the exchange." The final price of a unit is formed immediately at the time of purchase, as quotes of precious metals change all the time. However, it will not differ much from the one stated in the catalog.
Many states are engaged in the release of investment assets from precious metals. One of the first gold coins for investment appeared in the Republic of South Africa. To this day, the krugerrands of South Africa are quite popular among investors. Even with a high cost, those who want to buy them do not become less.
"American bison" - investment coins, which also have great value. Made of gold 9999 samples. On one side of the coin is a profile of an Indian, and on the other - a bison. Of interest to investors are the Chinese Pandas - these are monetary units from the Middle Kingdom, which depict the national symbol - panda. Their design changes almost every year, but they do not become less popular from this.
Another curious specimen is the golden Australian Kangaroo. The coin is sealed in a special capsule, so it is simply impossible to pick it up. On the other hand, this ensures the pristine purity and quality of the unit. And the Canadian investment coin "Maple Leaf" 0.9999 samples is considered the cleanest in composition and the most impeccable in coinage quality.
Almost every country boasts its own investment gold coins. Therefore, investors may not be limited to "their national" copies and without problems buying coins from other countries. The main thing: when buying, make sure that you do not overpay the premium, and the store in which you buy can clearly justify the cost of a particular unit.
