Gold isi a malleable metal that cannot be easily tarnished through exposure to oxidisation and natural elements. This means that no matter how long you have it in your collection, it will retain most of its shiny metallic colour. Should its colour start to fade or dull, a quick polish can usually return it to its original sheen. Furthermore, unlike silver and base metals, gold doesn’t even dissolve in nitric acid- which is a highly toxic acid that causes rust in many common metals.
Gold bullion coins are one of the most collected forms of gold as they’re more affordable and easier to transport than gold bars, and easier to value than gold jewellery. Moreover, unlike their rarer counterparts - proof coins - they are relatively easy to obtain. At The Scoin Shop
, we offer both bullion and proof coins from all over the world. Discover coins bearing depictions of the rich fundamentals that mark a country's heritage and international coins such as gold sovereigns from the United Kingdom. When you buy gold
from The Scoin Shop, you can be confident that your purchase will retain its value for many years to come and could increase significantly when combined with coins of similar theme and interest. While the value of a precious metal is important for gold investments, it is often a secondary consideration for a coin collector who chooses items for their historical, cultural or sentimental value.
