Raw (uncertified) $5 Liberty gold coins in Almost Uncirculated (AU) condition are a superb substitute for gold bullion. Minted more than a century ago, they're in severely limited supply today and contain nearly a quarter-ounce of pure gold. Yet they trade for relatively small premiums over their underlying gold value, making them a great buy in bulk gold.
True scarcity, low prices
Minted from 1866 to 1908, $5 Liberty coins (with motto) were produced by the millions but almost all were heavily used as currency or melted down during the gold confiscation of the 1930s. Precious few remain in AU condition. This fundamental scarcity can drive premiums higher during periods of peak demand.
Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements. In our opinion, they're better than bullion for bulk gold buyers.
• Low cost. These classic, scarce U.S. coins trade for relatively small premiums over their gold value today, making them an outstanding bargain for bulk gold buyers.
• Truly scarce. Relatively few exist in AU condition. This true scarcity can mean higher premiums during periods of increased demand.
• Private, liquid, and secure. Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements.
