Gold coins for sale from sovereign and private mints come in a variety of weights. While 1 oz gold coins are often the most popular, most collections offer several fractional-ounce gold coins as well. The most common fractional-ounce gold coin is the 1/2 oz gold coin, an option found in many of the leading gold bullion series available today.
The answer to this question applies to all fractional-ounce gold weights: affordability. In the 21st century, spot prices for gold have surged over $2,000 per ounce, at times, and this can make gold unaffordable for those looking to invest in precious metals. Fractional-ounce gold offers a more affordable means for anyone to keep investing in gold as prices fluctuate.
Across many of the most significant gold bullion collections in the world, you will find a 1/2 oz gold coin available from the mint. This includes series such as the Gold Eagle, Gold Britannia, Gold Maple Leaf, Gold Philharmonic, Gold Kangaroo, Gold Krugerrand, and the Gold Elephant.
As you look to more affordably invest in gold bullion, JM Bullion has 1/2 oz gold coins available from countless collections. Please contact our customer service team with any inquiries.
