Current Melt Prices of Gold Bullion Coins

Since gold prices continue to center of attention in the news and there is a large need to know the current melt value of gold, I thought this post would be a nice addition to the site in an attempt to help you find the current melt values of popular gold bullion coins.

In the tables below you will find the most popular gold coins along with their current melt values (updated in real time). We’ve included the American Eagle gold coins, Chinese Panda, Canadian Maple Leaf, South African Krugerrand, and even the Australian Kangaroo, and Austrian Philharmonic gold coins. Feel free to contact us if you want to see the melt values of any other gold coins here.

Please keep in mind this information is for reference and only calculates the current price of the physical gold in each coin. Due to the costs involved in minting coins and continued investor demand, these coins will typically sell for more than the values listed here. Think of this as a basis (or starting point) when calculating the current value of gold coins.

Australian Kangaroo Gold Coins

Purity: 99.9%
Weight: 1 ounce
The Australian Kangaroo gold coins are designed and minted by the famous Australian Perth Mint and feature a redesigned reverse each year. They’ve offered a new design every year since 1990, which is when the Kangaroo coins first started. Not as many of these coins are minted annually as coins from other government owned mints, so they are partly made to encourage gold ownership and also as a numismatic (collectible) coin.

These coins are legal tender from the Perth Mint in Australia. They contain at least .999 pure gold and usually come in a plastic holder from the Perth Mint.

These coins are a beautiful example of gold bullion that is recognized all over the world. They are produced by the Austrian Mint in Vienna and were the best selling of all gold coins for several years in the early 1990’s. It’s not until recently that they have become a desired gold coin in the United States, although their popularity is growning fast. Older Austrian Philharmonic coins have a face value of 2000 schillings while the newer coins are marked 100 Euros. They contain .9999 pure gold.
