Pre-1933 Gold Coins (NGC Certified)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. He ordered all Gold coins be returned to the U.S. Treasury, where millions were melted into Gold bars.
These federal government 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. Add to that being certified by NGC, one of the top coin grading services, and these coin's become extremely popular amongst coin collectors! APMEX is proud to offer a good selection of these harder-to-find classic coins.
