  Precious metal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bullion coins' minting by national governments gives them some numismatic value in addition to their bullion value, as well as certifying their purity.
One of the largest bullion coins in the world is a 10,000 dollar coin minted in Australia which consists of a full kilogram of 0.999 pure gold; however China has produced coins in very limited quantities (less than 20 pieces minted) that exceed 260 troy ounces (8 kg) of gold.
Meanwhile, silver bullion coins have become popular with coin collectors due to their relative affordability, and unlike most gold and platinum issues which are valued based upon the markets, silver issues are more often valued as collectables, far higher than their actual bullion value.

 Bullion Management Services Inc.
Unallocated bullion, like pool accounts and certificates, can form part of a portfolio?s cash component, but should not form the foundation as they may become illiquid and, in certain circumstances, could lose their value completely.
Fully allocated bullion is used for long-term wealth preservation because it maintains its purchasing power and also acts as a hedge against economic crises.
Bullion banks, in turn, lease the gold to mining companies and hedge funds that sell the bullion and invest the proceeds in higher yielding investments.

 Gold Sovereigns - From The Specialists
For Great Britain, the obvious choice of bullion coin is the gold sovereign, and many other central and commercial banks keep a proportion of their gold bullion in the form of British gold sovereigns.
The only disadvantage of the sovereign as a bullion coin, is that the new breed of bullion coins, from the krugerrand which was introduced in 1968, onwards, are easier to calculate their gold content because they all contain one troy ounce or a simple fraction of an ounce.
Because bullion sovereign prices fluctuate with the underlying gold bullion price, and also with supply and demand, it would be very difficult for us to quote accurate updated prices on our website.

 Bullion
Precious metal bullion: Any refined precious metal, such as gold, silver, platinum, and palladium, which is in a state or condition where its value depends primarily upon its precious metal content and not its form.
Perhaps the meaning of bullion coin has undergone a change with the introduction of the krugerrand as the world's first bullion coin, with a guaranteed content of one troy ounce of fine (pure) gold.
We strongly believe, after studying numerous dictionary definitions, that the term bullion should only apply to sovereigns and other coins which are traded at or close to their underlying intrinsic precious metal value, and that non-proof coins sold at higher premiums should be termed ordinary uncirculated.

In other words, the value of a rare coin is only partially based on its bullion content: its value is primarily based on demand from the hundreds of thousands of investors as well as collectors from around the world.
Rare coins were never part of this confiscation, and those who held $10 gold pieces throughout the period, for example, found that their value had increased more than sixfold.
Ominously, this law of bullion confiscation remains on the federal books, and in time of national emergency, could again rear its ugly head.

 Bill Cara Gold   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Traditionally, bullion coins, such as U.S. Eagles and South African Krugerrands are 90% to 91.7% pure (i.e., 22 carat).
Many modern bullion coins, such as the Canadian Maple Leaf, are pure gold, because they are not likely to ever be used as circulated 'money.' The key point, however, is that Krugerrands or Eagles, just like Maple Leafs, contain exactly one ounce of gold.
If you were an astute (or lucky) market timer in bullion who bought at the cycle lows and sold at the cycle highs, you would have stayed a step ahead of inflation.
