Gold Quarter 2009

Gold is an excellent investment, and this year’s issuance will certainly do just that. Its price will remain stable for the next few years, and analysts expect it to reach a ceiling of between $2,300 and $3,000 by Q4 of 2021. While you don’t want to hold onto your gold quarter for too long, it’s important to note that the price of gold tends to perform better during times of relative instability. That’s one reason why so many investors flock to precious metals during bear markets. They also tend to hold their value during economic downturns.

The quarter sovereign was the smallest legal tender gold coin in the modern UK. It contains one gram of gold and the traditional Dragon and George design is featured on its surface. The Quarter Sovereign Proof coin was struck by specially selected blanks, and the dies applied immense pressure to the blank. In each instance, two separate blows of the dies are required to create a coin. This particular edition also comes with a booklet, and it is encased in a snazzy case.

The gold quarter 2009 features an ultra high relief design, and is made of 24 karat gold. The design was conceived by renowned mint engraver Augustus Saint Gaudens. The original etchings were digitally mapped, and the dies were created using those maps. This coin features the image of Lady Liberty, walking forward while holding an olive branch and torch. On the reverse side, a bald eagle flies over the sun in the background. Lastly, the coin features an inscription to commemorate the historic event.

A gold-plated quarter isn’t a rare collectible, and the amount of gold plating on it is extremely small. Its melt value is very low, and there isn’t enough gold in them to make them worth more than their face value. So, if you have a genuine gold quarter, it’s worth a little more than you think. This government-issued gold coin is worth a lot of money, and 91,752 of them will go for a tidy sum.
