Gold ducats - a classic investment coin

The ducat is composed of 98.6% gold, and to a small extent copper, which makes the coin a little bit harder. The ducat is a very popular coin for investors or as a gift, especially in Austria. It is produced by the Austrian Mint and is therefore a piece that Austrians can call "home".

Gold ducats have the imprint franc ios i d g avstriae imperator on them, and in most cases the year 1915. They are available in two different sizes:

Ducats – for a flexible and safe investment in gold

You will be investing your money wisely in gold by buying ducats. Gold has always been regarded as the safest form of investment in the world In general, Mag. Walter Hell-Höflinger, company founder of Gold & Co., recommends investing 10-20% of your savings in gold – especially in economically uncertain times. In addition, money constantly loses its value. Gold is therefore very well suited as protection against inflation.
