In preparing for a “town hall” gold party recently, we needed to make sure we had all the information on hand for any gold coins which we were likely to encounter. Through experience, we knew which gold coins we should most expect… Olympics Commemoratives, Maple Leafs, Ducats through to the less likely but still possible Pandas and Pesos. However, in trying to compile the info, we discovered that it was nowhere all presented in a single document complete with grading.

So, since we had to put this together for ourselves, we figured why not share it with our clients and visitors. We can’t be the only people looking for this info, right?

Just to be extra nice, we also made an easy-to-download pdf of this table for you to keep and reference.
