Swiss Vreneli gold coins are popular with European gold investors, along with some of the other European gold coins. These include the British Sovereign, the French Rooster, the French Napoleon and the Dutch Guilder. Traditionally, the European gold coins were made in smaller denominations of between 5 and 8 grams of gold.
This reduced size makes the coins more affordable, and as a result, many gold investors in Europe build a strategy of purchasing 1-2 Vrenelis or other similar European gold coins each month in order to build up a gold portfolio over time.
