For example, these include the South African Krugerrand. Since it was first minted in1967 in Germiston, Johannesburg, the Krugerrand has enjoyed worldwide popularity. It only applies as official legal tender in South Africa, even though it is not intended as currency and therefore does not bear any nominal value. Canada produces a further successful investment gold coin - it shows a large maple leaf and is therefore called the Maple Leaf. The United States has minted the American Eagle, the true symbol of the country. These gold coins also have a high value and are a good investment for the future. One of the most fascinating pieces is the Vienna Philharmonic gold coin. This coin was released in 1989 and has gained interest worldwide. One of the other series with a high value is the Britannia coin, which comes from the United Kingdom. But this is only a small sample of the diverse selection of coins from coininvest.com!
