Is a gold bullion coin a mixture?
What is referred to as a bullion coin would be common gold or silver coins created by the US, Canada, China, etc. Gold coins are usually .999 gold. Many are fractions of an oz in weight. The weight is also the melt value. Collector coins are valued seperately. Bullion coins must be verified before selling or melting as they may have nusmatic value. Coins are always backed by a government. Rounds are not.

Making Gold Bullion Coins Part of Your Investment Portfolio?
Some believe the current record-breaking prices of gold are an indication of the weakness of the United States dollar. Additionally, the uncertainty about traditional investments is driving many around the world to add gold bullion to their investment portfolios as a safety measure. After all, gold has been the standard of wealth for thousands of years. Gold bullion can be purchased in the form of modern bullion coins, bars, and common world coins not of collector value. Many investors prefer having actual, physical gold rather than mere investments on paper, and coins are the most popular bullion form. One of the most sought after gold bullion coins is the American Gold Eagle coin, one of the two gold bullion coins backed by the United States government for their purity. The coins are minted in durable 22-karat gold that has a small amount of alloy creating a coin that is more resistant to scratching and marring. The coins come in four weights, 1/10th, 1/4th, 1/2, and one full ounce. Another United States gold bullion coin is the American Gold Buffalo. This coin is the first coin by the US Mint that is produced in 99.99% pure gold. Authorized in 2005, this 24-karat, pure gold coin comes in the same weights as the American Gold Eagle. The design is the same as the old buffalo nickel, with a profile of an Indian on one side and the buffalo on the other. Canadian Maple Leaf gold coins were the first 99.99% pure gold bullion coins minted and have been one of the most popular with gold investors due to their purity. Another coin, long considered a superior bullion investment, is the South African gold Krugerrand, bought by American investors since 1975. Several gold bullion coins have collector value in addition to their gold value as their design changes from year to year. Both the Australian lunar series and the Chinese gold panda coins have collector value in addition to bullion value. The Chinese panda comes in a 1/20th ounce size in addition to the other standard gold coin weights.

What is 'actual bullion value'?
Precious metals in bulk form are known as bullion, and are traded on commodity markets. Bullion metals may be cast into ingots, or minted into coins. The defining attribute of bullion is that it is valued by its mass and purity rather than by a face value as money. Many nations mint bullion coins, of which the most famous is probably the gold South African Krugerrand. Although nominally issued as legal tender, these coins' face value as currency is far below that of their value as bullion. For instance, the United States mints a gold bullion coin (the Gold Eagle) at a face value of $50 containing 1 troy ounce (31.1035 g) of gold
