Why Buy Gold Coins?
Gold has been popular as an investment for hundreds of years, but more recently, it became popular to invest in gold coins and bars in the 1970s, during periods of heavy inflation. Gold retains its value, particularly against fiat currencies which decrease in value as more money is printed. Gold also appreciates during times of economic difficulty or uncertainty, such as war. For this reason, many view gold as a really good hedge, and necessary to include as part of any diversified portfolio. 
 
Gold coins are mostly available in 1 Ounce or fractional denominations, and this allows investors to both buy and sell their gold incrementally, giving them greater control over their investment. Furthermore, gold coins are issued by official governments, like the United Kingdom, and this provides investors with greater security knowing that they are buying a quality investment.
