There is an interesting thread at the moment over at Kitco about buyers' preference for small fractional gold bullion coins as against full ounce coins.

There is a surprsing majority (it seems to me) in favor of the small coins, despite the premium that buyers pay for them.

While I have some tenth eagles myself, and can see the attraction, other gold collectors/investors seem to like the tenth ounce coins because they are more affordable when you don't have enough spare cash for a full ounce, because they are more liquid and can be onsold more readily when the time comes, and also because they diversify your physical holdings.

It may also be that you can imagine yourself 'spending' the little gold coins, while the one ounce gold bullion coins don't really seem like money. Like a child, the 'more' you have the richer you seem....
