Pre-33 (Pre-1933) Gold Coins - The U.S. Mint issued its first Gold coins in 1795. During the height of the Great Depression in 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt made it illegal for American citizens to have Gold. He ordered all Gold coins be returned to the U.S. Treasury, where millions were melted into Gold bars.
These federal government's recalls and meltdowns made these previously common Gold coins very rare. Today, the surviving pre-1933 Gold U.S. coins are fixed at an extremely limited supply. This fact has made pre-1933 Gold coins some of the most desirable items among collectors and investors. APMEX is proud to offer a good selection of these harder-to-find classic coins.
