The ducat or ducat consists of 98.6% gold and a small amount of copper, which makes the coin slightly harder. This alloy is even known as "ducat gold". Especially in Austria, the gold ducat is a very popular coin for investors or as a gift. It is produced by the Austrian Mint and is therefore also a piece of home.
Until the middle of the 19th century ducats were the official means of payment in Austria, until 1915 they continued to be minted as trade gold coins. Today's restrikes are produced as bullion coins. All gold ducats have the coinage franc ios i d g avstriae imperator (Francis Joseph the First by the Grace of God Emperor of Austria) and the restrikes mostly the year 1915. Gold ducats are available in two different sizes, as 1-fold ducat and 4-fold ducat.
The prices for gold ducats, as with all investment gold products, are based on the general gold rate (gold spot).
By buying ducats you invest your money safely in gold. Gold has always been considered the safest form of investment in the world. In general, Walter Hell-Höflinger, founder of Gold & Co., recommends investing 10-20% of your savings in gold - especially in economically uncertain times. In addition, money constantly loses value. That is why gold is very well suited as a protection against inflation.
