Allen Rowe: With gold prices down, collectors face decisions

During the past few years we have seen a number of new people buying gold coins, but with the price waning, many are wondering what to buy now. Bullion coins have always been the easiest to buy, as their price tracks along with the spot price of gold, dollar by dollar. The next level of gold coins to look at is common-dated gold coins. They will generally track with gold prices, yet the premiums can vary by a much larger margin. Full-on numismatic gold coins trade without usually being affected by the spot price of gold. Choosing what is right depends on your goals.
