Denmark 20 kroner Frederik VIII gold coins in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition are exceptionally scarce, yet they're trading today for little more than bullion, making them an outstanding value. They offer all the benefits of gold bullion plus extra benefits like limited supply, collector demand, complete financial privacy, and extra premium potential because of scarcity.
Slightly larger than British Sovereigns but far scarcer, they feature Frederik VIII, who ruled from 1908 until 1912. Directly related to most contemporary European monarchs by blood or marriage, Frederik belonged to the Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg family, which claims to be the world's oldest royal line, tracing itself back to Hardegon, the Norse chieftain who conquered the region in the 9th Century.
Exceptional scarcity and value
BU Frederiks are much scarcer than most of the European gold coins we trade in bulk. Minted for only five years, a mere 1.2 million were produced altogether, making them scarcer even than the already scarce Christian X coins that followed them. (French 20 franc Angels, by contrast, had a mintage surpassing 100 million.)
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.
• Exceptional scarcity. Only 1.2 million were minted, and most have been lost, melted down, or heavily worn in circulation. This exceptional scarcity mean higher premiums during periods of peak demand.
• Better than bullion. All the benefits of gold bullion plus extra benefits like limited supply, collector demand, complete financial privacy, and extra premium potential because of scarcity.
• Private, liquid, secure. Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements.
