Pro’s and Con’s of Fractional Size Investment Coins

Although 1 oz coins are the most popular form of investment gold. Fractional coins have there place and can be a good option. The key benefits of fractional sizes include:

  • Fractional size coins, like the 1/10 oz Gold Philharmonic 2017, are popular because they provide more flexible price points than 1 oz coins.

  • Can be used for barter or trading.

  • Are a good option for first time gold buyers.

  • Easy to accumulate and add to a current gold bullion portfolio.

  • Attractive for investors or collectors who are interested in owning a variety of different brand name coins.

The biggest disadvantage of fractional sized coins is the higher premium. Smaller coins are more expensive to mint and therefore will typically carry a higher premium.

As a result, investors or collectors must determine their gold bullion investment objectives to see if fractional coins are a good option to consider.
