Bullion

Bullion refers to precious metals that are traded on commodity markets. These metals can be found in the shape of ingots or coins, and its value is determined by the metalís purity not by its face value.

Some of the most famous bullion coins ever minted are the South African Krugerrand, and the Gold Maple Leaf minted by Canada.
