Investment Note
This artistically-rendered beauty contains a full one-quarter ounce of four nines (.9999) pure gold. Its weight represents a most popular fractional size of gold - small enough to be economical for any collector, but large enough to contain a significant amount of gold. If all this weren't enough to recommend this golden gem, consider the strict mintage limit of only 5,000 in single packaging - tiny by any standards, but all the more so considering its affordability.
