Gold Bullion Coins

Other than ancient gold coins, gold bullion coins are popular among people who desire a 'hedge' against currency inflation or failures, and for potential use in possible times of political unrest. South Africa introduced the Krugerrand in 1967 to cater to this market; this was the reason for its convenient and memorable gold content—exactly one troy ounce. It was the first modern, low premium (i.e. priced only slightly above the bullion value of the gold) bullion gold coin. Gold bullion coins are also produced in fractions of an ounce – typically half ounce, quarter ounce, and one-tenth ounce. Gold is internationally recognised as a form of currency under ISO 4217. Other gold bullion coins, many named after features on their design, include the American Gold Eagle, Swiss Vreneli, Gold dinar, Australian Gold Nugget, Australian Kookaburra, British Britannia, Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and Chinese Panda.
