    This is a small group of assorted gold coins from several foreign countries. The descriptions are as follows. Country, denomination, date, actual pure gold content in ounces. The order is from top to bottom, left to right. They total a little over an ounce of pure gold. Plus, think about it along these lines, these are definitely old and their condition excellent and the artwork superb. All the things a vintage collector could want.

    While collecting coins has been a passion of mine for many years, even those that don't collect coins should have a few in gold (and silver) just for an investment and an inflation hedge. Remember it is a scarce commodity that is not renewable. Think about it like this. If all the gold in the entire known world from the beginning of time right up to the present day was able to be brought together in one place. Say the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. It would only be able to fill that monument 3/4 the way to the top. When you think about it like that, that's not a whole lot of gold. It's been the "go to" currency of all time and has NEVER been worth zero.

      Thank you. Just a little piece of 30+ years of collecting/hoarding/investing.

      Hi! I have a 24 Karat coin. It's stamped 1000. It has a big cross on one side with PRincipium7 Rinis.+ (what looks like a pi sign) LA (another pi sign) E (what looks like maybe a 7 or 17 o. The other side is a big S in the middle. Lettering is Uetvsciuit pi sign sai?rcinis. A cross sen pi sign . Any idea what type of coin this may be or any value?

      Been outta town Judbloom but without a pic it would be hard to even guess. I know pre 1907 U.S. gold but little about foreign gold except the pieces I have. Again sorry for taking so much time to get back with you. Have a great one and keep buying the gold and silver in any form you can get a deal on.
