Government Bullion Coins

world bullion

World Bullion is a term used for Government Bullion coins minted around the world.

Government Bullion coins are legal tender, meaning they are backed by the government that created them; this guarantees the coins weight and purity.

Many of these coins receive a higher premium price on the retail and secondary markets than other forms of bullion.

Two of the biggest reasons for the higher premiums on World Bullion coins are due to the design of the coin and low mintage figures.

Government bullion coins are engraved by the finest coin designers who are known around the world for their artwork, they include; William Woodruff (Canada), Elise Martinson (Australia) and John Mercanti (United States) to name a few.

These engravers include symbols representing the country's national heritage, examples of which are, the Lady Liberty, the Mexican 'Winged Victory Angel,' the Canadian Maple Leaf, the Austrian Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra or the United Kingdon's Britannia.

Bullion coins are more often considered an article of investment rather than a collectors coin.

However, many nations like China, England, Australia and Austria manufacture their bullion coins with the same proof-like appearance of their collector's proof counterparts.

Bullion Mintage Figures


Bullion coins often have higher mintage figures, than the mintages of numismatic or collector coins.

This holds true, more for Western Hemisphere bullion coins than Eastern Hemisphere bullion coins.

One anomaly of this is the Mexican Mint, which produces considerably fewer bullion coins than the other Government Mints' located in the same hemisphere. (ex: The United States and Canada)

For example; these are the mintage numbers for each of the western hemisphere's 1oz. Silver bullion coins for 2014:

1oz. American Eagle Silver Bullion Coin: 44,006,000

1oz. Canadian Maple Leaf Silver Bullion Coin: 29,245,000

1oz. Mexican Silver Libertad: 429,200

Mintage figures have an effect on a coin's premium, the less rare a coin is, the less the premium will be. 

It is ironic that the United States and Canada have the highest bullion coin mintages, the reason for this irony is because of less than 10% of the populace of these nations - purchase bullion coins.

Other bullion coins with low mintage figures include the UK's Britannia and Australia's Lunar, Kookaburra and Koala silver bullion coins, they all have mintage figures under 1 million. 

In addition, Chinese Silver Panda bullion coins produced before 2010 have had mintage figures well under 1 million, because of this, these bullion coins carry very high premiums.

Gold bullion coin mintage figures do not differ as much between nations as they do with their silver bullion counterparts.

Most often you will find very high premiums on gold bullion coins that had a very limited release.  

The premiums mentioned above concern Bullion Coins Only.  Premiums for collector coins usually exceed those of bullion coins.
