99999 Gold Bullion

Unbelievable Benefits of Investing in 99999 Gold: A Comprehensive Guide to Making the Most of Your Money

The first gold coins were minted in Lydia, which is in present-day Turkey, somewhere between 700 BCE and 550 BCE. Once gold coins, and money in general, were popularized throughout the ancient world, gold bullion and silver bullion coins became a staple in those monetary systems. Throughout Classical Antiquity, including the Greek and Roman eras, most gold coins were around 95% pure gold which is about 23 karat gold. Most gold coins minted since 1800, however, have been closer to 90 and 92% pure gold, including those minted in the United States prior to 1933.

No gold coin is 100% pure gold.

The highest-purity gold bar was refined by the Perth Mint in 1957, and it was 999.999 aka “six nines fine.” Other commonly seen millesimal fineness amounts for gold purity include 999.99 (“five nines”), 999.9 (“four nines”), 999 (“three nines,” most common for 24 karat, minimum for “fine gold”), 995 (minimum for Good Delivery gold bars, minimum for a gold IRA, minimum for 24 karat), 990 (“two nines”), 916 (“Crown Gold,” aka 22 karat), 900 (“one nine”), 585 (14 karat, most popular for jewelry), and 417 (10 karat).

A gold karat (U.S.), or gold carat (Most places outside of the U.S.), is 1/24 part, or 4.1667% of the whole, and the purity of the gold alloy. So, a 24-karat gold bar is at least 99.9% gold, and this is often written simply as 24k.

The difference between 999 and 9999 is mathematically significant and you may or may not pay more for a 9999 over a 999, but the melt value is nearly the exact same as one another. So, most investors are better off getting the lower-cost option to reap the greatest rewards upon selling their gold coin or gold bar.

It is common to hear someone refer to gold bars, gold rounds, and gold coins as “bullion.” The word bullion is from French, and it means “boiling” as in the process of melting and boiling the metal into a molten for purification and ridding of impurities as is done in a refinery. The Royal Canadian Mint is world-renowned for its gold bullion coins and silver bullion coins.

Be aware that if a 1 oz t gold bullion coin for sale is less than the current price of gold per ounce, it is likely to not be a genuine 999+, 24k, gold coin.

The first gold coins of .9999 purity, also known as “four nines” gold, were the 1 Troy ounce gold Maple Leaf released in November 1982 by the Royal Canadian Mint. The coins are 99.99% pure gold bullion.

Not only has the Royal Canadian Mint produced the world’s first .9999 pure gold bullion coins, but they have also created the world’s first .99999 (five-nines) pure gold coins in 2007. These gold coins are 99.999% pure gold bullion and the finest gold bullion coins in the world!

Where to Buy .99999 Pure Gold Coins?

When purchasing gold bullion coins, it is important to buy from a reputable dealer who does not attempt to mislead customers to invest based solely on a numismatic or coin-collecting value. Instead, a good gold dealer will explain upfront that a gold coin and the vast majority of precious metals items made of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, or rhodium, sell for their melt value based on their respective spot price at the time of a sale instead of a collectible value. Most precious metals items are bought for their melt value, not anything else, so keep an eye out for additional costs that might delay a return on investment.
