Gold International Coins
The U.S. Gold Bureau sells popular gold coins from countries around the world including Canada, South Africa, Australia, Austria, and Switzerland. All prices reflect the current spot price of gold.
The iconic gold coins from around the world include the 1oz Gold Canadian Maple Leaf, 1oz Gold Krugerrand from South Africa, Austrian Mint’s 1 oz Gold Philharmonic, 1oz Gold Kangaroo from Australia’s Perth Mint, and the Swiss Franc.
The South African Krugerrand was first introduced in 1967 but was illegal to import in many western countries for the 1970s and 1980s because of the Apartheid policy of South Africa. Each Krugerrand is struck in 22 karat gold but contains 1 Troy oz. of 24 karat gold.
The Gold Philharmonic, first minted in 1989 and quickly became the best-selling gold coin in Europe. It was even the best-selling gold coin in the world from 1992, 1995, 1996, and 2000. The coin has a depiction of the pipe organ from the Vienna Musikverein Gold Hall.
The Royal Canadian Mint produces the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf which is eligible for inclusion in a self-directed IRA. It is legal tender and guaranteed by the Canadian government.
The Perth Mint in Australia produces a gold coin with one of the iconic images of the country. The Gold Kangaroo changes its design annually and serves as legal tender in Australia. Each coin is guaranteed by the Perth Mint.
The Swiss Franc was minted from 1897-1936 and again in 1947 and 1949. The name “Franc” is from “Verena” which is the Confederation of Switzerland personified similar to the American Lady Liberty. These coins feature a distinctive design and are popular among investors for their historical significance.
