Gold coins have been around as long as governments have been issuing coins. From ancient times to the present, gold coins have always been a favorite collectible for those who can afford them. Gold coins are basically divided into three categories; coins issued for commerce, bullion coins issued for their intrinsic metallic value and modern commemorative coins that are non-circulating legal tender, meaning that they have legal tender status but “are not meant to be spent.” Although legal tender coins for use in commerce are no longer being issued, they have numismatic or collectible value that can far exceed their metallic value. At Black Mountain Coins we offer many different gold coins from different issuing authorities.
