Large Gold Coins

Gold Coins Containing Over One Ounce
Only a small number of countries have ever issued gold coins containing over an ounce of gold, yet we know of many collectors interested in larger sized gold coins. To make life easy, we have created this page which will list most, if not all, of the world's large gold coins. We have also included a number of large diameter coins which may weigh under one ounce, but we have included them as most people would consider them as large gold coins.

Australian Bullion Coins
Australia issues two ounce, ten ounce and one kilo bullion coins. As these are only marginally less expensive than their one ounce cousins, and are in less convenient sizes, they have not been as popular as the one ounce originals, and are mainly bought by collectors or as gift items. (One kilo gold nugget coins make great paperweights!). For this reason most investors will not buy these larger coins. conversely means that their mintage figures are quite low, and may make them more attractive to certain collectors.

Obscure Countries
Sometimes it seems that the smaller and less important the country, the bigger their coins.
The following states have all issued large gold coins, usually as commemoratives:-
Australia, Ethiopia, Somalia,
