Below the following paragraphs about inform you about world bullion coins, you will find a list of respected World Bullion Dealers who, between all of them, offer the widest variety of world bullion coins, available on the web.
Whether or not you've purchased bullion coins before, one of the most important things a bullion investor should know is; What are the different bullion coins minted by World Governments?
Many of those who purchase bullion coins like to expand their collections to more than one type of coin but to do this, you need to know what are the other bullion coins that are available on the market.
This guide provides you with a way to know these coins, every coin page on this guide offers you the history about the mint that produced the coin and the history of the coin itself.
Also, most of the bullion coin pages give you an in-depth description of the coin, photos, and mintage figures.
Below, is a list of World Governments and the coins they produce that are currently found in this guide, they are the most commonly recognized world bullion coins in the industry.
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 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.
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.
