Gold Coins

Typically kept as an investment rather than used in everyday commerce, a bullion coin is made from a specific precious metal and produced by a government mint. In fact, non-government minted versions must be referred to as 'rounds,' 'medals,' etc. and may not legally use the term ‘coins.’ Popular with today’s investors, gold bullion coins are readily available for purchase, convenient to safeguard and store, simple to divide between investors, and are widely recognizable making them easy to sell or trade.

Monex proudly offers the most popular gold bullion coins available. These coins are made from pure gold and come from mints around the world including the United States’ U.S. Mints, Canada’s Royal Canadian Mint, an 800 year old Austrian Mint in Vienna, and the South African Mint in Centurion, Gauteng.

Your investment may include pure 24-carat gold bullion coins like the one-ounce American Buffalo; the one-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce Vienna Philharmonic; and the one-ounce, quarter-ounce, and tenth-ounce Canadian Maple Leaf. 22-carat gold bullion coins, which are generally thought to be more durable as they contain added metals such as copper or silver, are also popular investment options. Varieties include the American Eagle gold coin containing exactly one-ounce, quarter-ounce or tenth-ounce of pure gold and the South African Krugerrand which contains exactly one ounce of pure gold.

For home delivery, customers generally choose our 10 ounce gold bullion bar of .9999 fine purity, produced and hallmarked by either Heraeus, which is one of the largest and most respected refineries in the world, or the Royal Canadian Mint, likely the most respected producer across the globe. Also available from Monex is the 32.15 troy ounce gold "kilobar" – a one kilogram bar of fine gold bullion of .9999 purity. These "four-nines" fine gold bullion ingots are among the purest gold bullion bars available to investors today. Not for everyone, but certainly also available, are 100 oz gold bars. All gold bars are hallmarked by a leading refinery to certify weight and purity.

Investing in Gold: FAQ's
Why should I invest in gold?

Gold is one of the premier alternative investments for financial portfolio diversification. As its change in value is most inversely correlated to the rise and fall of traditional paper asset classes, gold bullion can reduce overall portfolio volatility when coupled with stocks and bonds investments.

Furthermore, gold offers significant financial and monetary liquidity, making it strategically convenient to generate capital gains, raise cash for re-balancing, or take advantage of an opportunity in a temporarily depressed investment market sector. If the stock and bond markets are overvalued and potentially at risk for a significant correction, gold investments may provide a safe haven.

Why do some gold coins sell for well above the spot gold price?

Gold coins that have genuine numismatic or collector value can sell at prices well above the spot price of gold. However, it remains to be seen if bullion coins sold significantly above market value will maintain that premium over time.

What is the process of investing in gold with Monex?

Monex has been a trusted name in gold and other precious metals investments for more than 50 years. With total customer transactions exceeding $60 billion, Monex offers a two-way buy/sell marketplace throughout an 11-hour trading day.

A written confirmation will be sent to you with the details of your order.

On the same day of your purchase, payment must be initiated by mail or wire. Upon payment verification, you have the power to decide if your physical metal will be shipped directly to you, made available for pick-up at a secure depository facility, or delivered to a bank or depository for storage.

Customers and prospective customers have access to personalized service from approachable and knowledgeable account representatives, and may inquire about their particular questions quickly and efficiently, along with discussing current trends and market information.

What is the minimum amount of gold I can buy from Monex?

Pure gold bullion bars are available in 10 ounces or more; while .9999 fine 1.5 ounce Gold Canadian Maple Leaf, also known as the MegaLeaf,TM has no minimum requirement and may be purchased individually. One ounce coins including the Gold American EagleGold American BuffaloGold Canadian Maple LeafGold Vienna Philharmonic and the South African Krugerrand require a minimum purchase of 10 coins. Tenth, quarter and half ounce gold bullion coin products carry a 20 coin minimum purchase.

What gold products does Monex offer to investors?

Monex offers some of the most popular gold bullion bars and government-minted bullion coins. Customers may purchase pure gold bullion bars, which are .999 fine or better. They are generally purchased in the most efficient investment sizes of 10, 32.15 or 100 ounce gold bars. You may select the Monex and Heraeus co-branded 10-ounce .9999 (“four-nines”) fine gold bars or 32.15-ounce .9999 fine gold “kilobars”.

All gold bars are stamped with the refiner’s hallmark, exact weight, fineness, and serial number. Monex also offers legal tender, pure gold bullion coins produced by the U.S. Mint, Royal Canadian Mint, and the Austrian Mint. Also available from Monex are 22-karat Gold American Eagles and South African Krugerrands, each containing exactly one troy ounce of pure gold.

What forms of payment does Monex accept?

- Domestic Bank Wires: Funds acceptable upon receipt.

- Foreign Bank Wires of U.S. Funds: Acceptable upon bank verification.

- Bank Cashier's checks and Personal Checks: Accepted with a 5 - 10 day hold period and bank verification.

- Cash, credit cards, convenience checks, payment in foreign currency, ACH forms of payment, checks drawn on foreign banks, or cryptocurrencies are not accepted.

Should I invest in gold bars or gold coins?

Investing in any gold product can strengthen your portfolio and protect your wealth. Whether you choose gold coins, bars, or both is specific to your unique set of circumstances and personal comfort level. In general, coins are often an investor’s first foray into the gold marketplace. Conveniently compact in size, they are typically easy to safeguard, available in an interesting array of options, and retain both liquidity and, in certain instances, numismatic potential. When choosing to invest with Monex, you are assured your coins are of the highest quality and produced in one of the world’s few premier mints.

Gold bullion bars also have distinct advantages. Like their counterparts, bars are produced in various sizes ranging from 1 ounce to 1 kilo. They are a fast and reliable source of quick diversification allowing investors to purchase and obtain possession in a short period of time; because of less manufacturing overhead, gold bullion bars are less expensive per ounce than coins; and gold bars are simplistic in design making them easy to sell.

Finally, keep in mind differing requirements of resale when deciding on a gold product for investment. Dollar for dollar your coin and bar investment may be similar, coins in your physical personal possession can be sold without delay and the added expense of an assay; while bullion bars in your personal possession require verification of weight and fineness prior to sale. In the instance your bullion bar has been purchased from Monex and securely stored in an independent third-party depository, there will be no assay fees required.

Call a Monex account representative today. They are eager to discuss our inventory of gold products and assist you in finding the best fit for your unique circumstances.

Is my gold investment insured?

All shipments of gold products to you are insured against loss or damage in transit. If you decide to have your gold delivered to and stored by a bank/depository, the metal is fully insured in transit and also while in storage.

How long will it take to receive my gold?

Almost every investment in physical metal is unique. For this reason, calculating shipping timing for a unique gold product is not a universal answer. Delivery of your metal is dependent on a large variety of factors including the quantity of metals, when your purchase is made, and more.

On average, physical metal will leave the shipping facility two to five days following confirmed reliable good funds. Upon receipt of payment and confirmation of reliable good funds, Monex will direct one of its independent shipping facilities to package and assign it to either USPS or UPS for delivery. You will then receive email or telephone notification of your shipment's tracking number.

During times when the shipping volume is extremely high, you will be notified if any delays are expected. Call a Monex account representative to learn more about estimated shipping times for your unique investment.

How do I know the gold products I get from Monex are authentic?

Monex guarantees the authenticity and fineness of all of its bullion bars and coins. Each gold bullion bar is imprinted with the refiner’s name, exact weight, and fineness. Monex only sells gold bars produced by refineries approved by the COMEX.

All gold coins are produced by government mints. In fact, the Royal Canadian Mint has authorized Monex as one of its Bullion DNA Dealers, a prestigious designation allowing us to easily facilitate authentication of gold Maple Leaf coins and silver Maple Leaf coins in just seconds through the use of state-of-the-art technology.

Does the face value of a gold coin affect its worth?

bugling-elkFace values of the most popular gold bullion coins are insignificant in relation to their intrinsic melt value. In this case, a coin’s face currency value does not affect its worth at all. In the event a reputable mint were to issue coins with currency of significant proportion to its commodity melt value, and it could be used to purchase goods, it would have some additional premium value; especially if its currency value were greater than its melt value.

Can I store my gold investment through Monex?

Monex can arrange for the secure storage of your gold bullion or coin investments. We will deliver your gold with full title and ownership in your name to one of the independent bank/depository facilities that provide storage for Monex customers. When your metal is received by the third party depository, the custodian of the facility will send you a document acknowledging receipt and verifying you as owner of the gold being stored.

Where should Investors sell their gold bullion or coins?

Since 1967, Monex has made it a priority to buy back gold that our customers purchased through us. Our multi-billion dollar, two-way buy/sell marketplace is both a hallmark and tradition at Monex, and serves as an assurance of liquidity for your gold investment.

Through the Monex Buy Back Program, we may buy investment-quality gold that was purchased from other reputable locations. Be aware that some restrictions and additional verification costs may apply. Please contact a Monex Account Representative for additional details.
