Why invest in 1 troy oz Gold coin?

The 1 troy oz Gold coin weight is the most popular and frequently minted gold coin weight in the world. These are a few reasons why 1 oz gold coins make a good choice for buying.

Being a medium weight gold coin the production and transportation costs are lower for these coins when we compare them to their 1/2 oz or 1/4 oz gold coins weight equivalent, this results in a lower premium above spot price for anyone investing in the one ounce gold coins.

The global spot price (benchmark price) of gold is also published for 1 troy ounces of pure 999.9 gold, so when you are buying one full ounce gold coin you can be sure of the price that you are paying above this benchmark price. Also being such a popular weight gold coin you can sell them easily, if you need to liquidate some of your precious metal into cash.

How many grams in an ounce of gold in a bar or coin?

We are often asked how many grams in an ounce of gold or how much is 1 oz gold? To answer simply, 1 troy ounce gold coin contains a minimum of 31.10 grams of pure 24 carat fine gold and at this weight level, they are relatively easier to add to your gold coin collection.

One ounce gold coins are also available in 22 carat (916.7) fineness however their actual weight will be higher and the minimum 24 carat pure gold they will contain will be 1 oz  (31.10 grams). A good example of 22 carat gold coin is 1 oz US Gold Eagle Coin, the actual weight of these coins is 33.93 grams as they are minted in 22 carat gold, however the pure 24 carat gold in them equates to 31.10 grams (1oz).

Is gold investment good and is it better to buy one ounce gold coins or gold bars?

Gold coins are one of the oldest  forms of currency and have been around for hundreds of years. There are a few factors to consider when making a choice whether to buy 1oz gold coins or bars.

The 1 oz gold coins, which are 31.10 grams in weight, offer great alternative to buying gold bars. Unique designs from the world’s leading mints make them more appealing choice for both collectors and investors. There are mainly two types of gold coins that can be purchased; First and most popular are Gold ‘coins’ produced by official government mints which are considered legal tender in the country of origin and secondly gold ‘rounds’, produced by private mints and their design vary based on various subjects.

In a contrast to ounce of gold bars, the coins are designed and minted based on an interesting backstory and at times with limited mintage numbers. The historic connection and low mintage numbers can also make them more valuable in addition to the metal intrinsic value.

On the contrary gold coins have a marginally higher production cost due to the processes involved in minting them when compared to gold bars, which results in slightly higher premium for coins compared to equivalent weight gold bars.

One of the other major difference to consider when choosing between one ounce gold coin or gold bar is their legal tender status. One ounce gold coins minted by the sovereign mint, for example, the UK Royal Mint are considered legal tender in the UK, hence there is no Capital Gains Tax (CGT) to be paid on the profits you make when you come to sell your gold coins. This provides investors and collectors with an ideal strategy when buying gold bullion.
