The term "eBay gold coins" refers to any type of coin made of gold sold through the auction website eBay.com. The site allows users to sell any style of coin from any country, with prices set by the seller and influenced by current gold and coinage values.
Listings on eBay typically contain pictures of the coin and information about its country of origin, the year it was minted and the percent of gold present in the coin. Buyers purchase coins directly through the website, with sellers setting different options and prices for shipping. If the coins do not match the description, eBay Buyer Protection covers the purchase price and shipping costs of the coins.
