Product Description

The 1/10 oz 2017 Kangaroo is a popular fractional size gold coin. Other fractional coins in the series include the ½ oz, the ¼ oz and the 1/20 oz. The 1/10 oz is popular because along with the 1/20 oz coin it offers a low price point.

Fractional sizes give investors the opportunity to buy name brand coins at more flexible price points. It should be noted that the smaller the coin the higher the premium. As smaller coins are more expensive to mint.

As a result buyers must weigh the pros and cons of investing in fractional weight products.
