Bullion Coins

Posted on Friday, January 9, 2009 in Favorite Finds, Gift Guide, Shopping Spree

A co – worker came in yesterday wearing the greatest coin necklace. As I inquired it got more fabulous and I have to have one. Her grandmother collected a few of these bullion coins from Canada, America, China, Australia etc. over the past 50 years and had them made into necklaces for the women in her family. My friend received her Chinese Bullion in the year she was born, awe. Her mother has received the Canadian and the American Buffalo. Aunts and cousins have also been adorned with this precious metal from South Africa etc.

 

The coin is HEAVY. Bullion means, a metal deemed to be precious if it is rare. It contains one troy ounce of pure 24k gold and it is legal mint, so not to be carried around lightly. It is a collector’s item and investment that will always be of value. Many nations mint bullion coins, of which the most famous is probably the gold South African Krugerrand. They will run you approximatly $700- $1000. 

 

Anyone having a daughter this year?

Here are the images on the coins and once I get a photo of her necklace I will share.

  1. I also have coins that my godmother has given me that are very very old and have one from my birth year and I want to make it a necklace for my birthday — gift to me :) so let me see what she did with hers — very curious!
