U.S. gold coins fall into two categories: collectible and bullion. Collectible U.S. gold coins were struck in 1933 and before. Bullion gold coins have been minted by the U.S. government since 1986. This article will provide a brief overview of these two fascinating areas, and explain how their market values are set.

Thank you for that. I was really thinking that investing in gold is our safest way to protect our hard earned money.

The problem with investing in non bullion gold coins is that due to their rarity and historical value you will be paying more than the value of the gold.  If you're not really a coin collector then this may not be a good investment.

If you're looking into gold investing I would stick with bullion coins.
