Gold rounds are a great, low cost addition to any investor’s holding. Buyers get the same attractive minted finish and appearance of a coin, including markings for weight and purity, but save money by avoiding the higher premiums associated with coins produced by sovereign (government) mints. Rounds are made by private mints who charge significantly less.
Rounds have no face value, and they are not legal tender which means they cannot be spent. However, in practice that will not matter a great deal. Sovereign coins carry a face value far, far below the value of their metal content. The 1 ounce Gold American Eagle series, for example, has a face value of a mere $50. With gold trading well north of $1000 per ounce (at the time of writing), the ability to “spend” that coin for $50 worth of merchandise is not useful.
Many buyers prefer rounds because they can get more metal for their money.
Gold rounds are pure metal as opposed to some coins which are alloyed with a bit of copper and/or silver. Both coins and rounds are always priced based on their actual precious metal content, so purity is not a major consideration. However, many buyers prefer .999+ pure metal for simplicity. No calculation is required to determine the gold content.
Rounds can also be easier to value because they are marked with their weight and purity, while many gold bullion coins are not. The pre-1933 US 1 oz gold coin and British Sovereign are examples of coins for which the gold weight must be looked up and memorized.
Despite being made by private mints, rounds are widely traded and trusted in the bullion markets. They are easy to buy and will be easy to sell when the time comes.

We won’t recommend selling until solutions have been found to the vast structural problems that have been driving metals prices higher. Massive federal debts and deficits will need to be reduced. The Federal Reserve must stop devaluing the US dollar with money creation and low interest rates. And reform must come to the banks and institutions which comprise our modern financial system. They rely upon endless credit expansion and widespread fraud and must instead practice restraint and ethical dealing.
Of course, the fundamentals above aren’t the only consideration when it comes choosing when to sell. Some investors will trade gold for silver when silver prices look cheap relative to gold (and vice versa). They may also sell gold in order to raise capital for another investment opportunity.
Investors may also run into an emergency and need cash for an unexpected expense.
There are many legitimate reasons to sell. Money Metals stands ready to buy gold rounds and any of the other bullion products we carry whenever you decide the time is right. One of the best reasons to own gold and silver bullion is that it can be instantly and easily converted to cash at its full value.
