Gold content of coins


#1

Linda asked about the gold content of various coins. Here are
some of them (I deleted your original posting so I’m not sure if
this includes all the coins you asked about):

Krugerand – 22K. Weighs 33.931 gms so it contains 1 full ounce of 24K +
alloy
American Eage – 22K. Same as above
Australian Kangaroo – .999 gold (weighs 1 troy ounce)
Canadian Maple Leaf – .999 "
Chinese panda – .999 "

Linda, hope this helps. I take it you plan to buy coins for
alloying. The Wall St. Journal always has a variety of ads
placed by coin dealers with good prices for the above coins.

Take care. RD
