The first foreign gold bullion coin in the US was the South African Krugerand, first minted in 1967. It contains an ounce of gold but was intended to circulate as currency, so it contains sufficient alloy to make it harder. For this reason, it is not a 24 karat bullion coin. Other foreign gold bullion coins include the Mexican Libertad, the Australian Kangaroo, the Austrian Philharmonic, the Canadian Gold Maple and the Chinese Panda.

The American Buffalo, however, is a .9999 gold bullion coin. This gold replica of the buffalo nickel was introduced in 2006 as the US Mint’s first pure gold coin. In addition, American Eagle and the American Double Eagle are gold bullion coins modeled after the American double eagles of the late 19th and early 20th century.

Beside dedicated gold bullion coins, the US Mint and others have produced commemorative gold coins over the years such as the Mark Twain one ounce gold coin. These coins can serve the purpose of gold bullion coins and may have collector value as well.

In buying and selling gold bullion coins, it is wise to rely upon expert advice and deal only in certified gold bullion coins. There are many options in buying gold bullion, so it makes no sense to accept less than professionally certified gold bullion coins for investment, protection against inflation and a hedge against the potential of economic collapse
