Bullion Coins

What are bullion coins? These coins may have high values because they are not only limited; but also may have been found in shipwrecks, or they may have come from ancient times. Bullion coins are the type of collector’s items that many people look for and collect exclusively.

Silver bullion coins could be the most well known type of bullion that is selling very well on the Internet.

Some high priced coins that are for sale on the Internet include the silver ingot. The silver ingot was said to have been found in the Spanish ship Atocha that sank in the ocean. This ship was found to contain treasures and artifacts including silver ingots but others claim that the silver ingots were recovered from an old Colorado Mining area. The silver Canadian Maple Leaf Coins, which are officially sealed, are also popular among collectors.

Gold Bullion Coins

Most bullion collectors prefer gold billion. Some famous bullion gold coins include the gold Krugerrands, which are from South Africa. The European Gold Crowns were released from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. Other items include the Canadian Maple Leaf gold coin and the United States American Eagle coins. British Sovereigns are also seen on the Internet as are the Swiss Helveteas and the French Roosters.

The awesome 10-ounce Swiss gold bar, China gold panda set, and the American eagle proof set coins can also be found and are considered by some to be the most sought after coins on the Internet. There are gold bullion coins found in the American Eagle set, Mixed Lots, Rounds, Bars, and other similar categories that are found on some sites on the Internet

Platinum Coins

A type of bullion coin that is not well known is the Platinum bullion coin. It is less researched on the Internet because the demand for it is not as great as silver and gold bullion. Platinum bullion can be purchased anywhere and include the French Statue of Liberty coins, Eagle sets, and the Koala Proofs.

The World Trade Center has also offered some Platinum bullion like the Englehard platinum bar, crucible dish made of platinum bullion, and the Johnson Matthew Year of the Dragon coins which were recovered from the safety vaults of the building when it collapsed.

A platinum coin can be considered as a thoughtful gift as aside from being valuable they can be kept as a souvenir from the person who gave it. A bullion bar that features a happy birthday greeting can be a great gift for a friend’s birthday especially if the bar has the date of the birthday on it. Some people also use them for their anniversaries as their gifts to one another.

A person has many precious metal choices when buying bullion coins. The idea of giving bullion to a special loved one or friend can be very thoughtful and it can serve as a keepsake that will be kept throughout the years. You may want to talk to a coin dealer to get the value of the coin.
