Pawn Gold Coin

Gold coins are seen as an investment. And most gold coins are made of 24-karat gold, or what the gold industry considers pure gold. But can you pawn a gold coin? The answer is that it depends. It is mostly case to case basis, as most pawn shops only commonly take jewelry as collateral.

Gold Coin History

Gold coins originated in Anatolia during the 6th century BCE. The Persians adopted the use of gold coins from king Croesus of Lydia when they captured him in 546 BCE. Several city-states in Ancient Greece also used gold coins for commerce. Ancient China also used gold coins for early trade and commerce.

Centuries later, gold coins were still in circulation. And in 1873, the German gold mark was introduced, replacing the coins of the Holy Roman Empire.   

Gold coins were still the primary form of money for many years to come until their fall in the early 20th century. Many countries switched to paper money from the gold standard due to hoarding brought upon by the Great Depression. As a result, the United States issued an executive order in 1933 to forbid the hoarding of gold. 

Today, gold coins are still minted not for commerce but for investment purposes. Gold coins are another way of owning gold aside from gold bars.
