Germans are generally economical people. And especially they are economical in all that concerns investments. The most skilled German investors never buy standard currencies of this year. The design of these standardized investment currencies, remains unchanged, every year, and they understand this well. They also know that they are buying gold coins for a long time. And that each currency of the current year costs more than it will be the currency of last year. And they can buy it cheaper.

It is more economically feasible to buy exactly the same coins of previous years, but cheaper. And with the money saved by this option they can buy another small gold coin or spend that money in a restaurant or shop with the wonderful feeling that they are smarter than many other people who don’t understand the complications of the investment in standard gold coins with the same design.
