The Gold Philharmonic Coins

The gold coins are minted with a gold purity of 0.9999, or 24-karar gold.

Fractional Coins

Less than One Ounce

The platinum and gold philharmonic coins come in fractional sizes.  This is significant.  These tend to be quite popular.  The reason is one ounce of gold or platinum is higher in price than many people wish to invest in a single coin.  In addition, if a person has to liquidate a coin with a need for a smaller amount of money, the one-ounce coin cannot be partially converted into money.  The smaller coins can be liquidated one or a few at a time, so the remainder of the investment can remain in the precious metal.  Also, there is a larger market for the smaller coins, making a future sale easier.


While smaller coins have a larger markup by percentage, they can often be sold for a similar markup.  So, owning ten one-tenth ounce coins might cost more than a one-ounce coin of the same metal, but they might be sold later for more than the single one-ounce coin.


Philharmonic Coin Packaging

Gold and Silver Coins

The one-ounce gold and platinum coins and the twenty-fifth ounce platinum coin each comes in a mint package as an option.  All gold and platinum coins are available in a blister pack.  Of course there is the option to not get any packaging.’


There is a collector case available to house the entire gold coin collection, but s bought separately.


The silver coin has the blister pack option.
