How Much Do Gold Coins Cost?

Gold is and always has been one of the most precious metals in the world.  Coins and bars are two of the most common forms of preserved pure gold.  Gold coins, in particular, are made entirely out of gold.  Normally round, shiny, and minted with designs significant to the jurisdiction where it is minted, the value of gold coins will depend on the type of gold coin, seller and market conditions.
