The Market for Gold Coins and the Suitability of Chinese Gold Coins for Investment

While many people see buying and selling gold stocks as a good way of making money, a somewhat more interesting and enjoyable investment can be trading in gold coins.  Gold has been a universally attractive investment for years, but gold coins, particularly collectable ones, have the added bonus of their rarity, historical significance, or aesthetic and artistic value.  Although buying and selling may require a little more time and effort to make sure you make the right investment, the other characteristics of the coin that contribute to its value, aside from its bullion value, mean that the potential for profit can be great.  Those who invest in speculative markets tend also to include a large number of gold coins in their portfolio as an insurance policy - this means that even if the price plummets, the coins still retain their face value.  It is also a great way of handing down wealth from generation to generation.

The market is very stable and is upward trending over time, especially the long-run.  The value of gold coins is leveraged to the gold price.  This effectively means that they will increase in value faster than gold when the price is rising, but decrease in value faster when the price is falling.  Despite this slight volatility, this form of currency makes a great defensive investment, because, as previously mentioned, in the long-run the market is strong and bullish.

When buying or selling it is always best to go to an expert as you will more likely get a fair price.  Don't expect to be blown away by the sum offered - the buyer has to be able to resell the coins for a profit too!

Chinese gold coins are particularly suitable for this kind of investment, mainly due to the variety of different series and sets of commemorative gold coins produced by the People's Bank of China alongside other precious metals.  Perhaps the best known series produced is the globally recognised gold panda, produced annually since 1982.  A collector might, for example, choose to acquire one of each of the 1 oz gold panda coins.  With such a remarkable array of rare and popular pieces, collecting Chinese gold coins can, for both investors and numismatists, be a highly rewarding, fun, and profitable experience.
