Buy Gold Online
Gold is a long-standing form of currency and has been used as a store of wealth since the beginning of recorded history. From the early civilizations of the Ancient Romans, Egyptians and Mayans to modern day holders of gold, such as private individuals, large institutional firms and central banks: gold has not only shown to survive—but to thrive. Historically, gold primarily functions as a universal and undisputed store of wealth that maintains its intrinsic value through the ravages of time, inflation and politics.
Gold is real money. When protecting your money, diversifying your portfolio with only mutual funds, bonds, and different stocks is not enough. You’re still putting your money into paper assets. This is why it’s important to diversify with physical gold coins or gold bars as a way of protecting your hard-earned money.
Buy Gold Coins
Physical gold is an excellent form of portable wealth. Specifically, when you buy gold coins, you hold one of the most popular forms of gold ownership. A gold coin’s limited production number, design and marketplace demand all contribute to a coin’s overall rarity and ultimately, its profit potential.
But which are the right gold coins to buy? The answer entirely depends on your precious metals objectives. A well-diversified portfolio with precious metals should take into consideration long-term goals as well as short-term needs.
Gold Bullion Coins
A bullion coin’s market value is tied primarily to its weight in gold and current market price, making it a more liquid, short-term hold. The most common gold bullion coins range in size from 1/10 oz to 1 oz, with various sizes in between. The two most common purities for bullion coins are 22-karat and 24-karat gold.
U.S. Money Reserve distinguishes itself from other precious metals distributors with its large inventory of government-issued gold coins. The majority of these coins are authorized legal tender from the U.S. Mint and an elite group of only the most secure and established mints in the world, including Australia’s Perth Mint, the South African Mint and the Austrian Mint.
No matter which type of gold coins you select for your wealth protection, you can feel confident in owning the hard asset that has outlived every paper currency ever issued.
Certified Gold Coins
Gold bullion coins may be appropriate for short-term “cash reserves,” but certified high-grade, low-mintage gold coins can hold much higher long-term profit potential than others. One of the key benefits of certified coins over bullion products is insulation from the volatility of gold’s spot price. The melt value is just one component of a certified graded coin.
Coin grading is the professional process of authenticating a coin’s condition—one of the primary factors in determining its upside potential. This third-party grading process is performed with the goal of accurately and safely grading the coin, then sonically sealing that coin in an official tamper-proof holder.
All certified gold coins from U.S. Money Reserve are graded by PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service), an industry leader in coin authentication. Our most popular PCGS-certified gold coins include: Proof Gold American Eagles, Burnished Gold American Eagles and the celebrated Ultra High Relief Gold Eagle Coin.
We are especially proud to exclusively offer the Reagan Legacy Signature Series—an official series catalogued by PCGS—with an elite selection of certified U.S. gold coins in only the highest grades available hand signed by Ronald Reagan’s son and gold advocate, Michael Reagan.
Whether you’re familiar with the numismatic gold coin world or just getting started, certified gold coins are a sound addition to any portfolio for precious metals buyers at every level.

Where to Buy Gold Coins
Gold coins remain one of the most popular ways to hold real, physical gold. You can buy gold coins online, over the phone, or sometimes through a local coin dealer. While you can usually find plenty of local coin dealers across the United States, you want to approach the local-purchasing route with a certain level of caution—just like you would with any other big decision.
Some veteran gold buyers steer clear of dealers in their area because of potentially higher prices, unfavorable local/regional sales-tax regulations, limited coin variety, travel time, and in-person sales pressure. Buying gold from a local dealer can also strip away a certain level of anonymity. These reasons and more have led many gold buyers to search for “where to buy gold bullion coins” online. That’s where U.S. Money Reserve can help. Our inventory of solid gold coins for sale online includes some of America’s favorite government-issued coins, like Gold Eagles, Gold Buffalos, and Krugerrands, along with harder-to-come-by gold coins like MS70 Burnished Gold American Eagles and PCGS Certified PR69 Proof Gold American Buffalos.

Buy Gold Bars
Purchasing gold bars is one of the easiest and most cost-effective forms of gold ownership. Gold bars typically carry a lower premium than gold coins and follow the spot price of gold, making them an attractive option for gold buyers today.
Gold bars can be as small as 1/2 gram to well over 1 kilo, and multiple sizes in between. The most popular sizes are around 1 oz and lower. While a few government mints produce gold bars—such as Australia’s Perth Mint—the majority is minted by private mints around the world, including Johnson Matthey, PAMP Suisse and more.
Whether you are looking to safeguard your paper assets or expand your wealth diversification, U.S. Money Reserve large inventory of gold products can suit a variety of needs for any gold buyer.
Where to Buy Gold Bars
Places that sell gold coins are also likely to sell gold bullion bars. We sell both at U.S. Money Reserve, along with silver coins and silver bars. While many of the same considerations should be taken into account when deciding where to buy gold bars and coins, purchasing gold bars can come with unique decision points.
The first consideration is size. Solid gold coins are relatively small, easily carried, and simple to conceal. Gold bars, on the other hand, can range from about the size of a push pin (one gram) to a smartphone (one kilogram). Gold bars don’t always come in a standard size and are often prepackaged and sealed in assay cards that provide details about the bars’ authenticity and protect their condition. Assay cards can add more bulk to gold bars.
Apart from the physical size of a gold bar, you want to think about its weight, too. How much gold do you feel comfortable carrying safely?
Buying gold bars online or over the phone means you only have to pick the physical gold up from your doorstep. Shipments from U.S. Money Reserve are always tracked, insured, and guaranteed. Can you say the same if you transport your gold purchase by car? Ask yourself these important questions before deciding where to buy gold bullion bars.
