Bullion Coins: American Gold Eagle
The production of gold coins for circulation ended in 1933, and many of the coins from the final years were melted following President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Executive Order 6102 of April 5, 1933. The purpose of the Order was broadly outlined: “I, Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of the United States of America É do hereby prohibit the hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States by individuals, partnerships, associations and corporations É”. Individuals were ordered to deliver gold coins, bullion, and gold certificates to a Federal Reserve bank or branch by May 1 of that year. There were exceptions for ordinary citizens: jewelers and artists could have “such amount of gold as may be required for legitimate and customary use”, anyone could retain “gold coin and gold certificates in an amount not exceeding in the aggregate $100.00 belonging to […]

Bullion Coins: American Gold Buffalo
American Gold Buffalo Bullion Coins are the first .9999 fine 24-karat gold coins ever struck by the United States Mint. Production of the American Gold Buffalo coins is authorized by Public Law 109-145, dated December 22, 2005, also known as the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005. The new American Buffalo Gold coin’s obverse and reverse designs feature images
The Native American depiction on the American Gold Buffalo coins obverse is believed to be based on three different American Indians. Two of the American Indians who modeled for Fraser as he sculpted the coin were named by the designer before his death. They were known as Chief Iron Tail of the Lakota Sioux and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne. Although many have claimed to have had a sitting with Fraser for this design, he could not recall the name of the third person and satisfactory documentation has not […]
Bullion Coins: Canadian Gold Maple Leaf
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf is the official bullion gold coin of Canada, and is produced by the Royal Canadian Mint. The brainchild of Walter Ott, it is one of the purest gold regular-issue coins in the world with a gold content of .9999 millesimal fineness (24 carats), with some special issues .99999 fine. That is, the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf contains virtually no base metals at all—only gold, from mines in Canada.
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf was introduced in 1979. At the time the only bullion coin was the Krugerrand, which was not widely available because of the economic boycott of apartheid-era South Africa. Coins minted between 1979 and 1982 have a gold content of .999.
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin is offered in 1⁄20 oz, 1⁄10 oz, 1⁄4 oz, 1⁄2 oz, and 1 oz denominations and is guaranteed to contain the stated amount (in […]

The Gold Krugerrand is a South African gold coin, first minted in 1967 to help market South African gold. The coin proved popular, and by 1980 the Krugerrand accounted for 90% of the gold coin market.
It is produced by the South African Mint, and offered in one ounce, a half ounce, a quarter ounce and a tenth ounce of actual gold weight.
Private mints have attempted to capitalize off the popularity of the coin, minting gold and silver bullion rounds (the term coin denotes legal currency) in the style of the Krugerrand. The rounds often depict Paul Kruger and a springbok antelope, some even blatantly copying the same design as on the Krugerrands themselves, though the inscriptions are altered. These bullion rounds are not offered by the South African Mint or the Government of South Africa, and are therefore not official, have no legal tender value and can not technically […]
