Gold bullion coins sell for the value of their gold content with small premiums (2% to 5%) to cover cost of production and distribution. In contrast, typically promoted numismatic coins can have premiums of 30%, 50%, even 100%, depending on the dealer.

Why Buy Gold Coins?
Gold coins are a great way to grow the worth of your assets without having to be backed by a bank or government and are able to be sold in nearly every country in the world. Buying gold is also a way to ensure you will have a useable asset that will be in high demand in a time of crisis.
One of the main benefits of buying gold coins is their timeless value. The price does, of course, fluctuate with the economy, but gold keeps its value much better than stocks or even cash.
What Are the Two Types of Gold Coins for Sale?
The two main categories of coins are standard bullion coins and numismatic coins.
Standard bullion coins are made almost entirely from precious metals. They are made of refined gold and are viewed as an investment, rather than a collector coin. The value of the coins is based on their gold content.
Numismatic coins refer to rare coins. The value of these coins is based on how rare they are and on their condition, and so can cost much higher than bullion coins. This coin category also includes proof coin sets.
