When you decide to buy gold bullion coins, you are committing to a decision that may well have a very positive impact on the preservation of your future buying power. But only if you actually pay a reasonable price!Too many novices, buying gold bullion coins for the first time, overpay & subsequently will have to wait a long time to see "the return of their investment" (Will Rogers!).Gold Bullion coins, are coins whose value is based on their intrinsic metal value. Not on any "coin collecting value" (in spite of what some dealers might try and persuade you!).Normally they trade for a "premium over spot". "Spot" is the price of the metal in the "spot" market and is widely reported on the financial channels, as well as daily in many news papers.
