World Gold Coins

Milled Bust Gold of Spain, Spanish America and the rest of the World.

 

Gold coinsIn this section we present all the gold coins in our inventory besides cobs. We start with the popular machine-struck (milled) bust-type (or portrait) gold coins that were made after cobs at the various Spanish and Spanish colonial mints. Since they represent the same values and denominations as the earlier cobs, these coins (or at least the larger denominations) also fall under the category of "doubloons".

The second part of this page is a presentation of gold coins of many different time periods from around the world, just whatever we happen to run across that looks nice and is priced right, not to mention that many are also from shipwrecks!
