We also buy gold coins for the coin’s value. Gold coins have many rare dates that are worth way more than just the gold value. For example, you can have a gold 2.5 dollar also known as a quarter eagle gold coin. If you have a common date it can be just above gold value or at market price depending on the condition of the gold coin. The same coin with the date of 1911 with a D mint mark is a very expensive rare coin. I’m talking a graded ms66 is worth about 165,000 dollars. A graded ms65 is worth about 50,000 dollars. The numbers are huge in this hobby. This is the reason you need to sell your gold coins to West Town Jewelry & Loan. You need an expert and a trustworthy source when selling your gold coins.
What makes a coin rare is the fact that less were made of a certain gold coin in a certain year at a certain mint. Some dates are plentiful in low grade conditions, but in high grade very scarce. The date and mint mark are the factors in whether or not a gold coin is rare. Many people think the older the gold coin is the more valuable. Not true at all in numismatics. I have seen a 3000 year old ancient gold coin sell for under 300 dollars. Not much money considering the hands that it was in and that it survived 3000 years. After the date and the mint mark is the condition of the gold coin. The better the condition of the gold coin the more money you will receive.
