Why invest in Australian gold coins?

Gold has a long-standing reputation for retaining its value over time. Even in times of economic instability when other markets - such as paper currency or stocks and shares - become volatile, gold tends to hold its price and offer a safe haven for investors.

Gold coins, compared to bullion bars, are small and so can be stored at home securely. This makes them an alluring choice for those who wish to keep their investments close at hand. An easily realisable asset, they can be sold without difficulty in the case of an emergency, when an investor may need quick access to the capital they have stored within them.

Also a popular choice for collectors, the quality, craftsmanship and iconic designs featured on Australian gold coins make them a sought-after treasure.

What are Australian gold coins?

Australian gold coins, amongst other bullion coins such as the gold Sovereign, are internationally renowned for having the highest standards of quality.

The Australian Nugget gold coin series was launched in 1987 by then Prime Minister Bob Hawke.

Struck from .999 per cent pure gold, the 24-carat coin collection from Australia’s Perth Mint is one of the finest in the world.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the $100 coin contains 1oz of fine gold. There's also a 1/2oz version available to buy.

These coins feature beautifully crafted designs and are minted in limited numbers – both factors which could raise their value to collectors above the live market price of gold.

About The Perth Mint

The only Australian refiner to be accredited by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), they’re also the only mint in the world to be endorsed by a government guarantee of their operations, activities and offerings. 

The Perth Mint also holds endorsements from five of the world’s leading commodity exchanges - the LBMA, the New York Commodity Exchange (COMEX), the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE), the Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM), and the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC).

The Perth Mint celebrates its 118th birthday in 2017, after opening in 1899 following the discovery of rich gold deposits in Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. Operations took place in their original premises until 1990, when things then moved to a modern facility in Perth’s eastern suburbs.
