Pre-33 Gold Certified Coins - APMEX offers a wide selection of graded Pre-33 American Gold coins. These Gold coins were a part of everyday circulation until the U.S. government recalled and melted down these coins in 1933. The coins in this category survived the collection, and have become scarce to find.
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. Executive Order 6102 called for all Gold U.S. coins be returned to the U.S. Treasury, where millions were melted down and cast into Gold bars.
These federal government recalls and meltdowns made the 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 large selection of these harder-to-find classic Gold coins.
