Gold coins minted in the U.S. prior to 1933 possess not only gold’s tangible value, they also make a brilliant addition to any collection. The appeal of pre-33 gold coins is centered on gold’s reputation for being a sturdy investment, and enhanced by the value of rare and historically significant coinage.
Pre-33 U.S. gold coins like the St. Gaudens and Incuse Indian designs haven’t been produced since the early 1930s, and most have been confiscated, making them scarce. By virtue of their rarity, pre-33 gold coins carry a distinct value and notoriety among gold investors, collectors, and history buffs.
Why buy pre-33 gold coins?
First issued by the U.S. Mint in 1795, these gold coins served as currency in the U.S. until their confiscation in the 1930s. During the depths of the Great Depression President Roosevelt announced a recall of all gold coins in circulation, hoping to repair the problems plaguing the nation at that time.
The small percentage of pre-33 gold coins that survived confiscation, and being melted into gold bars – now have value beyond their gold content.
Reasons to buy pre-33 gold coins:
- Extremely limited, fixed supply – unlike American Gold Eagles, pre-33 gold coins are no longer minted and are in extremely limited supply.
- Historical value – coins like the $20 St. Gaudens served as U.S. currency until the 1930s, enhancing their historic appeal as former legal tender.
- Graded and Certified gold - We offer pre-33 gold coins that are certified for authenticity by third-party grading service like PCGS and/or NGC.
