Gold International Coins
Coins from around the world were once made from gold that was minted for everyday transactions. At that point, all of the gold in the world was set at a fixed value known as the gold standard. Around the start of the 20th century, however, many countries left the gold standard behind and transitioned to the modern systems of currency we use today.
Today, many countries produce gold bullion for investments, but many still create coins as commemorative pieces. The majority of foreign gold coins are still struck as legal tender, but the value of the gold often outweighs the nominal value minted on the face. Continuing to mint coins this way gives them the legal tender status, so it is easier to import and export international coins.
When you come to IPM, we make it even easier to buy and sell valuable coins from around the world. We offer a wide selection of precious metals, so you can work with our experts to choose your next investment from our old gold coins list, which includes:

Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf Coin joined the list of popular gold coins in 1979. When it was introduced, it was the only gold bullion coin comparable to the South African Krugerrand. Many collectors also desired it due to the Royal Canadian Mint’s exceptional reputation for sophisticated coin designs and outstanding minting processes.
Like all gold coins accepted as legal tender, the Gold Maple Leaf has a face value, which is $50 CAD. Every coin has one troy ounce of .9999 pure gold, so you can add it to your self-directed IRA. One side of the coin features the profile of Queen Elizabeth II, while the other has the maple leaf.
Austrian Gold Philharmonic Coin
Compared to all coins in the world, the Philharmonic coin from Austria is one of the most intricate and ornate pieces of gold bullion. The design commemorates the world-famous orchestra by portraying Musikverein’s Gold Hall on the reverse side. The obverse side has an assortment of instruments along with the coin’s face value. It’s important to note that the face value varies depending on the year, but all coins are .9999 fine gold.
South African Gold Krugerrand Coin
The Krugerrand is one of the most popular world gold coins. It was originally struck in 1967, and by 1980 it made up 90% of the market even though it was illegal for many Western countries to import from South Africa during the apartheid.
The coin has a springbok on its reverse side and a profile portrait of its namesake, President Paul Kruger, on the obverse. It contains one troy ounce of gold and .09 troy ounces of copper, so it is dent and scratch-resistant.
Australian Gold Kangaroo Coin
The Gold Kangaroo stands out from coins from other countries because it has a two-tone “frosted” effect. Not to mention, each coin is encapsulated in a hard plastic for protection. It’s also a unique option for collectors because it has a different design every year and a limited annual production.
Swiss Gold 20 Franc Coin
The Swissmint in Bern minted the Swiss Miss Gold Franc from 1897 to 1936 and from 1947 to 1949. As the name implies, it has a face value of 20 francs, and it contains .1866 troy ounces of .900 fine gold. Its obverse design has a female personification of Switzerland, Helvetia, with a backdrop of mountains. The reverse depicts a Swiss shield on an oak branch.
