What is the Difference Between Coins and Bullion?

Unless you are a serious coin collector or precious metals investors, you might not know the difference between precious metal coins and bullion. Although coins and round bullion may be similar in appearance, they differ in terms of weight, fineness, and value.

Essentially, bullion is a refined and stamped weight of precious metal that is bought and sold for the "spot price" of gold, silver, or platinum. Because bullion is produced to standard weights (e.g., one ounce or half-ounce rounds) and struck at official mints, it is easier to buy and sell these types of "coins" compared to collectible coins, which are referred to as "numismatic" coins.

Numismatic coins are rare or valuable coins that were once in circulation as official currency. These coins are primarily valued for their collectability instead of their actual gold, silver, or platinum content. Depending on a coin’s history, availability, and condition, it may be worth more than the melt price of the precious metal it is made from.

Not sure what you have or how much your collection is worth? Contact Precious Elements for a risk-free valuation and no-obligation cash offer. We will perform an in-depth assessment, tell you exactly what you have, and, most importantly, tell you exactly what its worth. Contact us today to get started and turn your coins into cash fast!

What are Your Coins worth?

If you are thinking about selling your coins, you are probably wondering how much your coins are worth. The easiest way to value your coins is to contact Precious Elements for a no-risk, no-obligation cash estimate. Whether you are selling a single coin or a complete set, our expert coin buyers will provide an in-depth valuation so you can be confident that you are getting fair market price. Our experts will evaluate all factors to make sure you are getting top dollar for gold, silver, and platinum coins and bullion.

Coin values depend on a number of different factors, including the precious metal content and quality, the coin’s weight, grade, and, in certain cases, its numismatic value.

Coin Material

A coin's precious metal content and quality is the first valuation factor. Precious metals have different spot prices, which means that different precious metal coins and bullion are worth more or less depending on the current market value for gold, silver, and platinum. The price of a bullion coin is based primarily on its weight in gold, silver, or platinum.

Coin Grade

Grading measures a coin’s appearance. Gold, silver, and platinum bullion typically aren’t graded, although they can be. Unlike bullion coins, whose value is closely tied to their precious metal content, the value of numismatic coins is largely dependent on their quality. There are different coin grading companies and scales, but generally all coin grades reflect a coin’s strike, preservation, luster, color, and attractiveness.

In the US, the American Numismatic Association’s Official ANA Grading System for United States Coins is the most common grading scale and includes the following tiers (in descending order of quality): Mint State, About Uncirculated, Extremely Fine, Very Fine, Fine, Very Good, Fair, and Poor.

Numismatic Value 

As mentioned before, collectible coins may be worth more than the melt value of gold, silver, or platinum. A coin's numismatic value depends on a number of factors, including the rarity and popularity of the coin, the year and location it was minted, and even the coin's unique and documented history. The coin buyers at Precious Elements are highly trained to provide accurate numismatic valuations so you can be confident that you are getting every penny your coins are worth (no pun intended).

Why Sell Your Coins to
Precious Elements?

With so many coin shops, pawn shops, and online coin buyers, there is no shortage of places that will buy your coins.
