LCR Coin, Inc. carries all major bullion coins and bars from all Sovereign banks and mints.
Since 1986, the United States Mint has struck gold bullion coins for collectors and investors with interest in holding a precious metal in their IRAs. Two major types are available, both of which LCR Coin, Inc. recommends as fungible gold bullion coins.

American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins

Utilizing the classic obverse design of the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, the Gold Eagle debuted in 1986 and remains in production to date. Examples are issued yearly in Tenth-Ounce, Quarter-Ounce, Half-Ounce and One-Ounce sizes.

American Buffalo Gold Bullion Coins

Containing a higher fineness rating than the Gold Eagle, the Gold Buffalo, introduced in 2006, also enjoys strong demand among collectors and investors. Most examples are issued in One-Ounce format.


Physical Gold

Perhaps the easiest and most tangible way to add gold to your portfolio is to purchase it and take physical possession. Gold comes in many forms from jewelry and bars to rare coins.

Gold bullion in coin form offers a unique combination of attractive features for most investors. If privacy, liquidity, and diversification are important, consider gold bullion in coin form. For example, the American Gold and Silver Eagles are some of the most popular coins in IRAs today.

Gold coins can range from United States pieces from the modern era to classic foreign coinage struck during past centuries.





Throughout the rise of England, Great Britain, and the British Empire, the British Sovereign developed into the most important and widely used gold coin in international trade and finance. These relatively small-size gold coins, with a face value of 1 pound, were first issued in 1489 for Henry VII. Even after the relative decline of England as a world power after World War I, the sovereign has remained in production and continues to command the respect of the world market as a store of wealth in the form of gold bullion. From its inception in 1489 through late 2009, the British Empire has struck more than 1 billion Sovereigns.



As Napoleon expanded and solidified France’s power in Europe during the early 19th century, the French monetary system began to play an increasingly important role in the economy. Where once the British Sovereign served as the dominant gold coin in international trade, the new french 20 franc coin arose as a powerful monetary rival. Nearly identical in size and composition to the contemporary British Sovereign, the first French 20 Franc coins were stuck in 1802. The denomination would actually survive the French Revolution and Napoleonic Era that created it, for the gold variant of the 20 Franc remained in production until the outbreak of World War I in 1914, resulting in the restructuring of the French monetary system. And even though Napoleon’s Final defeat at Waterloo in 1815 ushered in the era known as the Pax Britannica, the rapid rise of the French 20 Franc solidified its popularity and significance as an international trade coin. It continued to serve alongside the British Gold sovereign into the World War I era and beyond.



First struck in 1871, the Swiss 20 Franc served as the nation’s primary gold coin until it was discontinued in 1949. During the years it was being minted, the Swiss 20 Franc also proved itself useful and desirable coin in the avenues of international trade, being close to the size and precious metal content to popular contemporary gold coins such as the British Sovereign, the French 20 Franc, and the United States Five-Dollar Half Eagle.
