Uruguay 5 peso gold coins in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition are an excellent value in today's market, combining exceptional scarcity with very low premiums. 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, all for little additional cost.
The classic design features on the obverse a bust of Jose Artigas, the 19th century army general revered as "the father of Uruguayan independence." The motto "Republica Oriental Del Uruguay" refers to the nation's location on the east bank of the Uruguay River. The reverse commemorates the centennial of Uruguay's Constitution, established in 1830 and inspired by the U.S. Constitution.
Tiny mintage, big value
Struck for one year, in 1930, to honor the Constitution Centennial, these unique coins are slightly larger than Britain Sovereigns but much scarcer. Their tiny original mintage of only 100,000 is by far the lowest of all of our bulk-trade world gold coins. Their true scarcity can mean higher premiums 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.
• 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.
• Miniscule mintage. Only 100,000 coins were minted -- unlike bullion coins, which are minted in unlimited numbers every year. Their true scarcity can mean higher premiums during periods of peak demand.
• Private, secure, and liquid. Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements.
