Gold Coins Were Illegal To Own
It's amazing, that at one time in American History, that it was illegal to own already collected and circulated gold coinage. In 1933, spear-headed by the President Franklin Roosevelt, the US Government did just that; enacting legislation that made it illegal for US Citizens to own US Gold Coins. It was an attempt to bring America out of the depression state and save financial institutions in the US and was backed by a punishment of $10,000 or imprisonment!

People panicked, some rushed to relinquish their gold holdings and turned it over to the government to be melted, but many others buried their coins in fear of being punished. Fortunately, such is not the case now and numismatist can freely buy and own gold coins. Like never before, collectors are buying gold coins and bullion, but it still begs the question; How much buried and hidden coins are still to be found?

If you have found any hidden coin treasures or want to share a story about a long lost hoard, share it here.
We're apologize if our gold coin value charts don't reflect precious metal trends on a day to day basis. The market is up and down, with nothing more than a speech about are Nation's debt, and who's selling how much of their precious metal, that it can change dramatically from week to week.

In some cases, as in common date gold coins, the gold value has surpassed the Numismatic Value. Furthermore, remember that price guides are for reference and not always what a coin WILL sell for, but what it HAS sold for, and MIGHT sell for again.

We're working on our values charts, adding more grades and values, so please be patient. If you have a question don't hesitate to post it on our message board, and we will tell you what a certain coin is selling for. We sell gold, silver, copper, nickel and modern coins online and have for many years. CoinHELP! would be glad to assist you, and fast, since one of us is always plugged-in.
