If you decide to sell your previously purchased copies in the future, there are three ways to do this::

- via an auction.
Not every bank sells gold coins or is happy to buy the purchased copies back. You may be refused or the price may be significantly reduced if the money is slightly damaged or scratched. In order to be accepted for this investment object, you must provide an identity document. If the coin has been held by its owner for less than three years, taxes must be paid.

There are cases when a person touches a coin with his finger and a difficult-to-remove spot remains on it. Even it can negatively affect the price.
You should worry about how you will store your gold investments in advance. You need to provide them with proper temperature and humidity levels, and protect them from direct sunlight.
What to choose: investment in gold coins or bullion?
Modern people invest their capital in both coins and gold bars. Each of these methods has its own advantages and disadvantages.
The main difference between assets is their weight. Gold coins are often issued with a weight of one troy ounce. As for ingots, they are usually heavier than a kilogram. If your capital is large enough, you can choose the latter option.
Investing in gold coins has more liquidity than buying bullion, since their value is determined not only by the quantitative content of gold, but also by the numismatic component.
It is also worth considering that the costs that were spent on creating the instance and designing the design also affect the cost.
Investing in precious coins can be called universal. This method of investing money will bring a big profit, but you need to be able to determine the real value and prospects of the object.
Investments in coins should be long-term. Don’t expect instant profits. You will be able to feel a tangible income only after years.
