Ever since man first began to mine the earth, gold has been something that captivates humanity in a very powerful way. People have celebrated the beauty of gold and valued it above most other metals for thousands of years. With the stock markets and economic values of companies and materials fluctuating in the global economy we have created today, many people forget that there is still a solid, substantial, form of currency to invest in that will only increase in value as time goes on. This of course is gold.
Gold bullion coins are very important to our countries economy and many people enjoy collecting them for both their beauty and value. More practically, our economy is entirely based around the gold standard and an investment in gold ensures that you will always have something of value. Other coin values fluctuate as the country’s inflation rises, they depreciate in values. However gold is always worth at least the metal it is made of, and usually a lot more than that. Several types of gold coins are even more valuable because they contain collectable and historical value. These include Gold eagle coins and buffalo coins.
Another precious metal that is almost as consistently valuable as gold is silver. The US mint has made several silver coins over the years but none of them have been as valuable or collectable as the several types of silver dollars that have been made. Especially popular are commemorative silver dollars which have never been circulated before.
