Raw Modern $5 Gold Commemorative Coins
Modern commemorative coins are a perfect choice for the savvy bullion investor. Originally created for collectors, due to the high populations and high mintages they are priced as bullion, with their value linked to the underlying spot price.
When the US government restricted US citizens from owning gold in 1933 an exception was made for collectibles. Should such a confiscation be imposed again, it is more likely that coins made for collectors such as commemorative coins will be exempted than bullion coins such as gold eagles.
Congress has authorized these commemorative coins to celebrate and honor American people, places, events, and institutions. Although these coins are legal tender, they are not minted for general circulation. Each commemorative coin is produced by the United States Mint in limited quantity and is only available for a limited time.
