Fractional coins are bullion coins made of less than one troy ounce of gold. The most common denomination is 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz and 1/20 oz. Most of the fractional ounces of gold coins are produced by world-renowned mints and therefore, recognised worldwide. These include the British Royal Mint, The United States Mint and the South African Mint.
Even though fractional gold coins contain less gold, they are a great alternative way to invest in precious metals.
What is the benefit of fractional ounce gold coins?
One of the main benefits of buying fractional ounce gold coins is the price. Simply they are more affordable than a one-ounce gold bullion coin. A 1-ounce gold coin can be an important financial investment if you have a small budget. On the other hand, it can be a downturn if you are a coin collector and restrain yourself from your hobby.
The great benefit of a fractional ounce is the flexibility that these coins offer. You can purchase more coins at lower prices, and make your portfolio more flexible. Therefore, buying a 1/2 oz coin enables you to sell a smaller part of your investment.
