    Im hopeless at maths, could somebody please tell me if I've got this calculation correct?

    Gold coin
    Weights 13.9636 grams
    0.9860 fine gold
    Actual gold weight 0.4426 oz
    Price: $678.00

    So -

    $678.00
    / 13.9636 grams
    = $48.55 per gram of coin weight

    $48.55
    / 0.9860 fine gold
    = $49.24 per gram of 24 carat gold

    ok great thank you.

    Not from feebay though, listed on a popular SS site sponsor/ dealer.

    Seems quite good value considering that at current prices the 1oz kanga is only 44 cents cheaper per gram.

    Small price to pay for an exotic coin I would think.

    You are probably buying an Austria-Hungarian 4 Ducat gold coin, they are the gold coin par excellence imo.

    Yeah that's right mate.

    I'm looking for bullion investment not collectables though.

    Any thoughts on ease/ issues with resale, such as not being generally recognised by the Aussie public?

    Austrian 4 Ducat? No problems.

    Just don't bend it when you get it - when you see it you'll understand :)

    Actually, with the CREDIT (METAL ) DEFAULT SWAPS advertisement featured here on SS,
    if you have a look, it features a number of 1966 50 cent pieces and a gold coin. The
    gold coin in that ad is the 4 Ducat coin.
