Should I buy coins or bars?
The coins and bars that Merrion Gold supply are all investment grade, solid gold products. Each bar and coin carries a premium above the spot price of the metal. The premium is determined by the availability, desirability, mining, minting and refining costs. Typically, coins command higher premiums than bars. Unless you have a preference for a particular item, it is usually cheaper to purchase bullion bars.
Which type of coins should I buy?
This is really a personal preference. The gold content in coins vary from 90% to 917/1000 to 999.9/1000 – this does not necessarily mean that a coin with 90% gold content is worth any less than the coin with 999.9/1000 purity – in the world of coins supply and demand is also a factor. Talk to any of our team for more details on the different types of coins available to you and what will suit you best.
Do you base your buying / selling prices on the live bullion price?
Yes, we take the live price and add/subtract the premium applicable to the particular coin or bar.
