Examples of investment currencies

Investment currency or bullion

It is a valuable piece of metal that is destined to serve as an investment object worldwide. With respect to this metal, the most important thing about it is, both its purity and its weight , even more important than the numismatic value that it may have thanks to the design it presents. That is why in this type of coin both its weight and the purity of the metal are reflected in it.

The weight of this type of coin is reflected in a troy ounce, that is , one ounce is the equivalent of 31.10 grams . In this sense, we can find coins from 1/50 ounces to 10 ounces or even more. It is important to note that the decimal metric l is also used for versions that weigh 1 kilo or more.

This type of coin is generally minted by prestigious securities houses , thus being a guarantee of the authenticity of the metal and the coin itself and giving their investors a vote of confidence. In some cases this investment currency is backed by the State.
