Answer The Grant Wood Gold coin was issued by the US Mint as part of the American Arts series. It is one ounce of gold. The minimum value of the coin is the spot …price of gold which was $832.10 on 11/09/07.
If I understand your question, you are asking if these coins are made of gold. Yes they are made of gold, but they are not technically coins because they have no monetar…y value affixed to them (i.e., $1, $5, &c.). I have seen them called medals or medallions, but they are not coins. I am not certain how much gold is contained in these American Arts series, but I'd guess 1/2 oz.
According to an article at www.usmint.gov/historianscorner/index.cfm?action=DocDL&doc=pr527.doc these coins are 90% gold and 10%alloy The American Arts Gold Medallions (t…echnically they are medallions, not coins, although they were minted by the US mint) was a 10 coin set issued from 1980 to 1984. Each year consisted of two coins, a 1 ounce coin and a 1/2 ounce coin, each coin honoring a different American Artist (the term "artist" is used loosly; one of the coins honored Frank Lloyd Wright, another honored Mark Twain, another Louis Armstrong). These weights are the weight of gold in the coins; because the coins were not "pure" gold, the total weight of the coins is slightly higher. Although not common, these are not in high demand by "coin collectors"and usually are valued at only a very slight premium over the gold that they contain.
The exact value of a 1980 Grant Wood one troy ounce gold coin is actually dependent upon a number of factors. Some of these factors would be, the gold content and conditio…n of the coin.
the book only shows $20.00 gold liberties. in avg cond they avg around $450.00 apiece and up.
The coin is worth an amount ranging from $1,500 to $2,500. The exact amount will depend upon the condition of the coin.
What is the current value of the 1970 Commemorative coin of the Central American and Caribbean Games?
Gold was fixed at £832 a Troy Ounce on 1st October 2010 in London. Your coin, assuming it is gold and probably alloyed with copper i.e. 22 carat, is worth around £900 - £10…00. PF69 refers to Proof 69 (69 out of 70 as the highest known grade) and probably slabbed as such. It may have slightly more value from a numismatic viewpoint although as it is a modern issue this is highly unlikely.
The price of gold 1oz is set once or twice a day by London. If you go to a teller in the Canadian Bank of Nova Scotia which sells coins, the teller will look it up in that day…'s printout and if you want to buy, she'll send to the vault for your coin. The coins are a little more expensive than the 1 oz bullion bars, and some coins are more expensive than others depending on rarity and beauty. For instance the Canadian Maple Leaf, South African Kruger Rand, and American Eagle which are essentially bullion coins are a bit more expensive than the bars but not as expensive as Chinese Pandas which are rarer and prettier. The price of coins can be found at kitco dot com.
I'm sorry to say "not much." Unofficial plating of a coin destroys its collector value, and the gold put on is usually so thin that it adds no worth to the piece. If these are… silver coins then they have intrinsic precious metal worth, but you have to be careful here--US quarters, for example, are issued in both silver and ordinary clad proof versions for collectors. Ordinarily I'd expect people to gold plate the cheaper coins, and then sell them for huge markups. Television advertisements offering gold plated or gold replica coins are terrible investments, and quite often legitimate coins can be bought directly from the US mint at prices far below what are asked for on TV or in magazine advertisements. Always do research before buying--if the deals were so good they wouldn't be selling them!

The price of the 1 oz Gold American Eagle coin varies considerably. This is because it is based on the price of gold which fluctuates daily and intra-day. Other considerations… affecting the price would be the rarity of the coin, demand for gold coins as an investment, and the spread.
The value of 1 ounce coins varies from day to day, as the spot price changes, as well as the premium, depending on the coin. However, today, at the end of June, a Krugerrand c…osts 880 British Pounds.
