Mixed year COINS
Mixed year coins are best value coins. We would supply a mixed variety of coins based on availability.
These coins have been circulated and hence may carry some cosmetic wear or marks. This does NOT affect value of gold in the coin, as the value is based on fineness of gold and weight.
We are committed to ensuring the value of gold we supply and hence we put each pre-owned item through rigorous testing. Testing involves checking for weight via calibrated industrial scales and purity using a NITON XRF gun analyzer.
