Pre-1933 U.S. Gold Coins
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 prohibited American citizens from holding monetary Gold, including Gold coins. He ordered all Gold U.S. coins (with exceptions for some jewelry and collector's coins) be returned to the U.S. Treasury, where millions of American Gold coins were melted and then cast into Gold bars.
The federal government recalls and melting down of Pre-1933 Gold coins made these previously common coins very rare to find. Today, the surviving vintage 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 rare coins among collectors and investors. APMEX is proud to offer a good selection of these harder-to-find classic vintage U.S. coins.
