Gold Bullion Coin
If you don’t have
a lot of money to invest, you might want to consider investing in gold
coins. You can diversify and spread your investment among traditional
stocks and bonds as well. Many investors are currently looking at
investing in gold as the US dollar may lose value.

in them. You could purchase other coins or gold, but you won’t have the
guarantee and it could become more difficult to cash in to money when
you want to.

The coins are considered money in the US, however, the face value of the
coin isn’t worth it. The gold in the coin is worth around 10 times more
than the face value on the coin.

purchased from an authorized American Eagle dealer. The values of gold
coins are continually changing as the price of gold changes.
