Which Commemorative Coins are Worth Buying in 2017?

Friday, June 23, 2017

Whilst the quality and purity of commemorative coins is typically the same as other coins from the same mint, their unique designs and special mint marks lead many to see them as something just that bit more special than usual. 

They often appeal to particularly keen investors or collectors who enjoy owning 'big year' coins. It is this that could lead to them being worth more in the future – when other collectors seek out those memorable years to complete their sets.

If you’re planning to invest in gold coins and you know you’ll be holding on to them for the long-term, then commemorative coins could be a wise choice. They’ll hold their value in line with the gold price just like other bullion coins and – if you find the right buyer – they might be worth even more.

So which coins are celebrating big anniversaries in 2017?

Best commemorative gold coins to buy in 2017

2017 is proving to be an interesting one with two of the world’s most renowned mints releasing commemorative coins to celebrate big anniversaries.

The Royal Mint’s flagship coin, the gold Sovereign, celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2017 with a coin featuring an exclusive shield mint mark.

Exempt from both VAT and Capital Gains Tax (CGT), the British gold Sovereign is widely thought to be one of the best gold coins to buy.

The 2017 commemorative edition, with its bold St George and the Dragon design, is expected to be a particularly popular choice for collectors and investors alike this year.

First produced on 3rd July 1967 by the South African Mint, the gold Krugerrand coin also has reason to celebrate this year having reached its 50th year in production this July.
