Weight of common gold and silver coins
Hello all. I am new to this forum.
When I first started investing in gold I thought about how I would verify the authenticity of 1 oz. gold and silver coins I purchase from private sales. I did some checking on the internet and found the familiar guidelines as to appearance, thickness, diameter and weight. I had some time this morning, so I weighed out whatever coins were close at hand using my trusty Durascale. I posted the results as attachments.
Included in the list are
* Maple Leaf
* USA Eagle
* USA Silver Eagle
* USA Silver Dollars of the late 1800's and early 1900's
Hopefully this is helpful to those who are new to precious metal investments and are seeking an easy reference to help "keep it real" when buying.
