Fractional gold coins offer an easy way for everyone to enter the gold market. When investing in gold you have tons of options as to what vehicle you choose. You can invest in gold stocks, certificates, ETFs, mutual fund and, even physical gold. Of all of these options holding physical gold has the most appeal. With gold prices hovering around $1500 US per troy ounce many people feel they have been priced out of the market.

The reasons to own gold now are very compelling. Globally massive deficits are being run, many countries are already starting to buckle under the strain (Greece and the other PIIGS for example). There has been a large amount of money created worldwide to try and mitigate the economic collapse. This monetary inflation will no doubt lead to large price increases. You can already see the evidence in commodity prices. In addition to all of these factors you have large geopolitical risks in the mid-east and North Africa.


Gold has been used as money for thousands of years and, is always a safe haven investment against many factors. A great way to build a position and protect your wealth is with fractional gold coins. Many national mints sell these gold coins
, below are just a few of your options:


American Gold Eagles ½, ¼, 1/10 troy ounce

South African Krugerrand ½, ¼, 1/10 troy ounce

Canadian Maple Leaf ½, ¼, 1/10, 1/20 troy ounce



You can also get 1 gram gold bars too. Fractional gold coins will have a fairly high premium or fabrication cost. This is not the ideal way to accumulate gold if you are aiming to have a large amount of ounces.  That being said for someone with a smaller gold budget they are ideal.
