The history of Australian Gold coins
From 1899 to 1931, the Perth Mint struck more than 106 million Gold sovereigns and 735,000 half-sovereigns that were used as currency in Australia. The mint stopped production of Australian Gold coins in 1931 when Britain went off the Gold Standard, shifting the focus to fine Gold bullion bars. In 1987, Gold Kangaroo coins were introduced, formally called the Australian Nugget Gold coin. The 1 oz Gold Kangaroo exceeded expectations, with sales of 155,000 ounces of Gold worth $103 million on the first day it was available for purchase.
Why invest in Australian Gold coins?
Investors like the 1 oz Gold Kangaroo for its exceptional quality .9999 fine Gold and exquisite design, featuring Australia’s most recognizable wildlife symbol. Australian Gold coins are a good option when looking to expand your Gold holdings because the Gold bullion coins are guaranteed by the Perth Mint and are world-recognized for quality, making them easier to trade and sell. Gold coins, like Gold Kangaroo coins, are preferred by some investors because they have legal tender status, which some believe make bullion highly liquid and easier to trade in a crisis. Investors also like that the Perth Mint has a reputation for issuing Gold coins of exceptional quality.
When buying Gold, know what you are paying for.
When you buy a 1 oz Gold Kangaroo, like with all Gold purchases, you are not paying the Gold spot price, you are paying a premium price that includes fabrication and distribution costs, minor dealer’s fees and any numismatic or collector value. Gold Kangaroo coins appeal to investors as the coins are valued primarily for their Gold content. These Australian Gold coins are considered bullion coins, and generally do not have numismatic value. Some Perth Mint Gold coins do, however, have numismatic value, which means they have a collector value in addition to the Gold content value, and are prized due to their rarity, beauty or historical value.
Buy physical Gold to add security to your portfolio.
Besides buying physical Gold, like Australian Gold coins, some investors buy exchange-traded fund or stocks in Gold mines. Physical Gold, like Gold Kangaroo coins and other world Gold coins, however, give you the security of holding an actual, tangible investment that will never lose all of its value. When investors buy Australian Gold coins and other physical Gold, they do so because Gold’s purchasing power tends to remain stable during inflationary periods. Perth Mint Gold coins also fluctuate with the price of Gold, the Gold price generally moves independent of the stock market and other paper investments, therefore often providing stability to your portfolio.
