Synopsis

We like to make buying gold as easy as 1, 2, 3! You will see that we are transparent with our premiums and display them on all our investment gold products.

What is a Premium?

We usually think of a premium as a percentage over the intrinsic value, as this makes comparison easier between different products, weights, metals and times. In other words, a premium is the price you pay over the gold content of the bar or coin. A clever investor will buy the product with the lowest premium over gold. You will see on our pages a column for the premium and the final price for that item (inclusive of the premium).

One-Ounce Bullion Coins

There is a choice of gold bullion coins for investors, but our advice is generally to buy the cheapest, determined by percentage premium over intrinsic value.

The Selection

The following one ounce bullion coins are the most readily available, although there are others.

Other One-Ounce Bullion Coins

Other gold coins containing one ounce of fine gold do exist, but they are not as widely available, so we can ignore them here.

Our Advice

Over many years, our advice to investors has been very simple and consistent. Within reason, buy the cheapest.

One-Ounce Best Buy

If you want the best possible price on one-ounce gold bullion coins, leave the choice to us with our minty one ounce gold coins or secondary market gold coins. Most of the time you will receive Krugerrands, but occasionally you may be lucky enough to get nuggets, maples, Britannias, eagles, other one-ounce coins. These are normally more expensive, but occasionally we have a surplus of them, and a shortage of Krugerrands. Whatever happens, you win as you get a better price, and possibly a "better" coin.
