US Gold Coins, Pre-1933
Buy gold coins at low prices!

Printer Friendly Version

US gold coins minted pre-1933 are very popular among collectors and investors, and for good reasons. They offer historical significance, beautiful designs, excellent minting, guaranteed gold content, true scarcity, and financial privacy.

Many collectors prefer to buy coins by specific dates and producing mints. If you are a collector, you might wish to review our classic US gold coin list to find the dates and mints of your choice.

Gold investors often prefer buying "common date," or generic, pre-1933 gold coins like ones offered here. With these coins, the dates and mints are not so important. They are priced according the spot gold price plus a premium based on their overall scarcity, grade, and demand in the market.

Better than gold bullion

In our experience, common date pre-1933 U.S. gold coins are better than gold bullion for bulk gold buyers and investors. They offer all the benefits of gold bullion plus extra benefits like limited supply, collector demand, financial privacy, and extra premium potential because of scarcity.

Modern gold bullion coins, because they are made in virtually unlimited quatities every year, offer no signicant premiums for scarcity. And while many modern bullion coins are subject to broker reporting requirements to the IRS, collectible coins of historial signficance, like pre-1933 US gold coins, are exempt from these requirements, giving you more financial privacy.

AGE offers highest-quality coins at each grade level. All of our certified coins have been graded and authenticated by NGC or PCGS, the most trusted independent coin grading firms in the industry. Plus, we cherry-pick the national market for the best coins in each grade. Rest assured that you will not find better coins at lower prices than ours. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.

Buying pre-1933 gold coins

Although called "common dates," these coins are actually quite scarce. Of the many millions originally minted, almost all were heavily used in circulation during the 1800s and early 1900s, and many were melted down during the federal gold recall in the 1930s. Only a small fraction of the original mintage survives today, especially in the higher Mint State grades.

The fundamental scarcity of these classic gold coins, especially in the higher grades like MS-64 and MS-65, can mean substantially higher premiums over their gold value during periods of heightened demand or a rising gold price. This is what we call their "double play" leverage: the proven ability to rise by more than the gold price because of fundamental scarcity and restricted supply in the national market.

Benefits of US gold coins

True scarcity. Classic gold coins supplies are extremely limited to what has survived the ravages of time, melt downs, hoarding, and other means of attrition. Modern gold bullion coins are produced every year in virtually unlimited numbers.

Additional profit opportunity. Because the supply of classic U.S. gold coins is limited to what was minted long ago, these gold coins tend to increase in value faster than gold bullion during a rising gold price. Modern gold bullion coins, on the other hand, offer virtually no premiums for scarcity.

Easy liquidity. Common date U.S. gold coins are avidly traded by gold investors and dealers around the world, ensuring constant demand and easy liquidity.

Complete financial privacy. No broker reporting requirements when you buy or sell classic gold coins. Sales of many modern gold bullion sales are reportable to the IRS.

Exemption from confiscation. Classic gold coins of historical significance are exempt from governmental confiscation under current laws.

Pride of ownership. Common date U.S. gold coins are fascinating pieces of artwork commemorating unique eras is U.S. history. They provide true pride of ownership.
