    I am trying to compile a list of gold bullion coins, which are circulated by national bodies around the world. Guest posts will be greatly appreciated!

    The attached zipped file is a MicroSoft Excel file with gold coins & their specs, which might help you out with this thread. I also uploaded a version as a PDF if you prefer that file type. I could also copy+paste the same here, but it will not preserve cells.

    I think the PDF is corrupt...Great information in the spreadsheet!

    Both files are the same. Just saved the PDF from the Excel file. Glad one worked for you.

    I would add the Austrian Philharmonic:

    0.9999 fine gold, but mine at least doesn't have the luster/shine of the Maple Leaf or the Eagle.

    I also have Chinese Pandas:

    0.999 fine gold, very nice and good shine.

    Lot of other mints around the world make gold coins, but their volumes are limited, the quality is not up to collector standards, they are less liquid, and sometimes they aren't made every year.

    An ounce of gold is still under some circumstances only worth an ounce of gold, so if you pay a premium make sure you have a good reason for paying it.

    I wonder if you can 'smudge' a five 9's purity gold coin in your fingers...must be MUCH SOFTER than a .999 let alone the Krug/AGE @ 0.9167 fine gold.

    I don't think there is much difference between a .999 and .99999, the other metals are going to be so miniscule that they aren't really going to affect the softness of the coin.

    Is the Chinese Gold Panda considered an investment grade bullion coin?

    Well how do you define "investment grade"?

    I hope so....I have a few sub-1 oz.'ers. :D

    It's a nice coin, my local LCS rarely has them compared to MLs, AGEs, and even Buffalos.
