For many people, investing in Certified Gold Coins is the safest option as it ensures their collection is truly authentic. Having said that, some coin hobbyists prefer to purchase both certified and uncertified gold coins to enhance their unique collection. Whether an individual chooses to collect only gold coins with certification or both certified and uncertified gold coins, neither activity is right or wrong. However, gold coins that have been certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) will guarantee the grade and authenticity of your coins.

Here at Capital Gold Group, we’re proud to offer a fine selection of Certified Gold Coins to help you protect your gold investments and collectable items.

Why Buy Certified Gold Coins?

Certified Gold Coins are typically more valuable than ungraded coins, making them easier to resell at a later date. They also retain more of their fine detail and are less likely to have any damage or handling marks, which makes them more desirable to other gold coin collectors. As a major grading service will have guaranteed each certified gold coin on its quality, craftsmanship, and authenticity, you can always be confident that your purchases are genuine. Plus, all Certified Gold Coins come in attractive display cases to protect their condition and enable you to neatly organize your collection. These plastic holders also include various counterfeit deterrent features, as well as a label that highlights unique details about the coins contained within them.

Certification History of the NGC and PCGS

Founded in 1987, the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) is well-known for being the largest third-party coin grading service in the world. As a result of certifying over 39 million coins and many of the most important coins and collections throughout its history, both the Professional Numismatists Guild and American Numismatic Association refuse to use any other grading company.

A small group of the nation’s top rare coin specialists formed the PCGS in 1985 after recognizing several serious problems needed addressing for the rare coin industry to realize its potential. These experts acknowledged the absence of a universal standard and believed many coin buyers could be victimized by product misrepresentation. To ensure buyers could purchase coins with confidence, the PCGS began offering a coin grading service backed by a guarantee.

Both the NGC and PCGS use the Sheldon Scale to certify the condition of each coin it grades, assigning grades from 1 to 70. This scale was originally developed by the renowned numismatist, Dr. William Herbert Sheldon. The Sheldon Scale works on a numeric basis on the theory that a 70-grade coin would be worth 70 times as much as a grade 1 coin.

Prior to the establishment of the NGC and PCGS, market participants had to determine the value of rare coins based on their physical condition alone, and would only be able to rate coins on their good, fine or uncirculated condition. Nowadays, the NGC and PCGS consider the rarity, legitimate status and condition of coins to identify their proper value.

Indian Quarter Eagles

Minted from 1908 to 1915 and from 1925 to 1929, the Indian Gold Quarter Eagle features an Indian male chief with a large ceremonial headdress on the obverse, and a bald eagle perched on an arrow on the reverse of the coin. All certified Indian Gold Quarter Eagles contain .12094 oz. of gold and have a face value of $2.50. Today, these coins tend to be available in grades up to Mint State-64 and remain highly desirable to collectors.

Indian Gold Half Eagles

The Indian Gold Half Eagle Coin was struck from 1908 to 1916, and in 1929, and its design is the same as the $2.50 Quarter Eagle except for the denomination featured below the bald eagle image on the reverse of the coin. Containing .2419 oz. of pure gold and with a face value of $5, Indian Gold Half Eagles have become incredibly rare with relatively few examples existing in higher grades. As more and more investors enter the market, some dates are almost impossible to find.

Indian Head Gold Eagles

With a gold content of .4838 troy oz., the $10 Indian Head Gold Eagle Coin was the last of the Indian Gold Eagle coins to come from the U.S. Mint. However, it’s different from its predecessors, featuring a raised design, as well as Lady Liberty wearing a feathered headdress, instead of a Native American. Struck from 1907 to 1933, the Indian Head Gold Eagle Coin will make a wonderful and historical addition to any gold coin collection.

Saint Gaudens Coins

All certified Saint Gaudens Gold Coins have been produced with .9675 oz. of gold and designed by the famous sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Design features include the Lady of Liberty and an eagle flying above the sun. These coins are also known as Double Eagles or Saint Gaudens $20 coins and were manufactured from 1907 to 1933. Many collectors believe the Saint Gaudens Gold Coin is the most beautiful coin ever to come from the United States.

Liberty Head Coins

The Type 1 $1 Gold Liberty Head Coins were the smallest coins in the United States Mint history, produced with a mere diameter of 13 millimeters. Three different variations of this coin were minted in total between 1849 and 1889, and chief engraver, James Barton Longacre was put in charge of designing each type. In 1854, the Mint increased the Type 2 Liberty Head Coin’s diameter to 15 millimeters without making any changes to its weight. The physical dimensions remained the same when the Type 3 coin was released in 1856.

Liberty Gold Half Eagles

A rare and historically memorable piece of American coinage, the Liberty Gold Half Eagle Coin has become a rather challenging piece to find in recent years. Minted by the U.S. Mint from 1839 to 1908, this coin has a face value of $5 and contains .2419 oz. of pure gold. Featuring a classic image of Lady Liberty, as well as the Great Seal of the United States, most coin enthusiasts tend to collect Liberty Gold Half Eagles by decade or year.

Liberty Gold Double Eagles

Issued from 1849 to 1907, the Liberty Gold Double Eagle Coin has been hailed as one of the most in-demand gold coins in the world. The coin’s obverse boasts a stunning image of Lady Liberty, while the reverse features an American eagle with a shield across its chest. Various modifications were made to the Liberty Gold Double Eagle Coins over the years, and each piece contains .9675 oz. of fine gold.
