Investing in gold bullion coins via UOB

Dear readers,

If you are looking for an easy and convenient way to own bullion gold coins and not worry about whether they are real or fake, UOB is probably the best place to go to.

UOB offers the following bullion coins in various sizes, ranging from 1/20 ounce to 1 ounce:

  • Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins
  • American Eagle gold coins
  • Australian Kangaroo gold nuggets
  • Singapore Lion gold bullion coins

Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins
Introduced in 1973, the Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins are a favourite with global investors. The Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins are stucked by the Royal Canadian Mint, the Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins are valued for their portability, liquidity, and purity – guaranteed by the Government of Canada. These coins are the first ever to reach .9999 purity, an achievement reflected in the “9999” hallmark found on every of these coins.

American Eagle gold coins
The American Eagle gold coins are official gold bullion coins of the United States. Authorised under the Gold Bullion Act of 1985, these coins were first released by the United States Mint in 1986. Unlike the Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins, the American Eagle gold coins are made with an additional alloy of silver and copper to produce a more wear-resistant coin of .91670 fine gold. The American Eagle gold coins are backed by the United States Mint for their weight and content.

Australian Kangaroo gold nuggets
Minted by the Perth Mint, the Australian Kangaroo gold nuggets are one of the few legal tender bullion gold coins to change their design every year, another being the China Gold Panda. This and their limited annual mintage may, unlike other bullion coins, raise their numismatic value over the value of their gold content. Unlike the other three bullion gold coins offered by UOB, the Australian Kangaroo gold nuggets are available in denominations of 1/20 ounce, 1/10 ounce, 1/4 ounce, 1/2 ounce, 1 ounce, 2 ounce, 10 ounce, and 1 kilogram.

Singapore Lion gold bullion coins
The Singapore Lion gold bullion coins are minted by the Singapore Mint, issued since 1991. Each coin bears the design of a majestic roaring lion’s head on the reverse and the Singapore Arms on the obverse. The Singapore Lion gold bullion are cherished for their limited mintage and may have the chance to raise their numismatic value over the value of their gold content in future.

Are you spoilt for choice and don’t know which bullion coin to buy? Here’s a quick tip for you. If you are looking for the highest purity of gold, choose the Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins. For toughness and durability (though I believe you will keep your coins in a safe environment), pick the American Eagle gold coins. If you are looking at higher chances of numismatic value for your bullion coins, pick either the Australian Kangaroo nuggets or the Singapore Lion.

My personal choice is the Australian Kangaroo nuggets because it is a very beautiful coin. Have you decided on the gold coin that you want to purchase? For other investments which will let you hold the physical Gold Bar, please Contact Us for more details.
