Pre-1933 Gold Coins
Pre-1933 Gold coins for sale is one of the most active segments of the coin market. Pre-1933 gold coins are common date coins known as semi-numismatic gold.
With the signing of Executive Order 6102 in 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt put an end to the minting of gold coins for circulation at the height of the Great Depression, making gold illegal to possess and allowing for government confiscation.
The Gold Recall Act had a couple of exceptions; rare gold coins minted prior to 1933, were excluded from government confiscation, allowing collectors to own them legitimately and save them from melting. Today, surviving Pre-33 Gold U.S. coins have an extremely limited, fixed supply, coupled with an increasing demand because of their high liquidity and historical beauty.
Pre-1933 gold denominations include; Liberty and Indian $1 Gold Pieces, $2.50 Quarter Eagles, $3 Gold Pieces, $5 Half Eagles, and $10 Eagles. $20 Double Eagles have Liberty Head and Saint-Gaudens designs. Pre-33 Gold coins are liquid, private, portable, and are great diversifiers that can be used as a hedge against inflation. Often referred to as “Bullion with Muscle”, Pre-1933 Gold offers an excellent bridge between gold bullion and truly rare coins.
