dutch-guilderOf all the interesting things the Dutch have given to the world, perhaps Gold coins are not on the top of your list. However, Dutch gold bullion coins are unique, rare, and make a strong investment if you are diversifying your portfolio from the standard Krugerrand, Maple Leaf, Double Eagle, and Panda gold coins. It’s always a good idea to have a diverse collection, just as you would want a diverse portfolio of stocks for obvious reasons.

Holland has existed for centuries, as part of Charlemagne’s empire, afterwards countries like France, Spain, Hapsburg, and Germany have occupied it. Finally after WWII the Netherlands was able to be free of foreign control. Due to their rich cultural history, there have been many kinds of gold bullion coins that have been produced in the Netherlands. If you are familiar with medieval currency then you might be familiar with the many varied names of the Dutch gold coins: ducats, florins, florins d'or, duits, stuivers, cavaliers, gulden or guilders, and ducatons according to taxfreegold.co.uk.

Currently, the easiest gold coin of the Netherlands to find is the Guilder. Guilders come in both gold and silver, in multiple denominations. None contain more than .265 Oz of gold though, so these are not pure gold coins. The hold a much higher collectible value rather than spot gold, so for a serious gold bug investor, perhaps these coins would not be the best choice.

The point is- why stick to only the standard gold coins when you could truly diversify your portfolio by buying many different kinds? Nearly every country has their own gold coin minted and each is just as valuable as the other. The more varied your sources of gold, the more protected you are from sudden market drops in a certain coins value. The coin itself though can never drop below the actual spot gold price so never forget that while you many be investing in a collectible, you are truly investing in gold bullion and should price your purchases accordingly.

Over the coming weeks, we will try to give you a good overview of the different kinds of gold coins that are available in the world today, so you can get a better picture of the various options you have for investing in gold bullion.
