The great coin CUP: A South American special - Argentina Vs BrazilsteemCreated with Sketch.


So lets settle a few things.... Weve all got our personal preferences when it comes to "stacking" Precious Metals, but when all is said and done there can be truly only one!

We may have touched on this before, but i dont think weve ever gone in to this much detail and length to really discover which coin is the communities favourite.

Argentina Gold 5 Pesos are a popular coin for collectors and investors because they are nearly identical in weight and size to the literal gold standard coin of the time the British Sovereign. This form of Argentine gold is far rarer than their Imperial British coin counterparts. Minted in Buenos Aires and other Argentine Mint locations, they are an interesting and historical way to diversify into bullion gold. [SOURCE](

Minted from 1853 to 1889, Brazil 10,000 reis coins are slightly larger and heavier than the very popular British Sovereigns but far scarcer in the market. Yet they're trading today at similar premiums, making these classic Brazil gold coins an excellent value. The design features Emperor Pedro II on the obverse and the Imperial Arms of Brazil on the reverse. An enlightened monarch often compared to Queen Victoria, Pedro II reigned as Emperor of Brazil for 49 years. [SOURCE](




Ive tried to keep it fair this week by offering to you 2 very similar coins in terms of purity and weight. Theyre no where near the full oz, and my gut feeling says theyll fall by the wayside later on in the competition. Yet, im still highly interested to know if you fine guys and gals love a bit of european gold?

These coins were issued for circulation and are of a similar size to a UK sovereign. These coins are steeped in history and are ideal for coin collectors and investors.

So the question remains, for building a multi generational store of value, which one would you pick and why?? Simply leave a comment below or upvote the corresponding image in the comments.

We're now in to week 10 of this competition. With two very strong coins battling it out last week. The votes have been counted and then counted again..... The overwhelming favorite was the French "Cockerell" coin. No suprise really, it was my personal choice too.


Do you agree with this result?? If not, you probably should have voted!! Regardless, the fractional French fancy progresses on to round two, where it will join the 1oz Canadian Maple, Mexican Libertad, US Liberty, the South African Krugerrand, Queens Beasts series, Bermuda Trident, Great White Shark and Double dragon.
