Gold coins have the peculiarity of being easily transportable and very liquid on the gold market. You can easily share all over the world and easily split your capital. Moreover, the parts have the advantage to get a premium, and can thus be sold more expensive than their gold value (according the weight of fine gold contained therein).
The notion of premium refers to the law of supply and demand. So if there is a lot of demand on 20 Swiss francs Vrenelis and few sellers of this room, the room will see its price rise.
In the 80s, the premium on the Napoleon wrasse was close to 100%. So a 20 franc Napoleon containing 1,000 gold francs was worth 2,000 francs in reality with the premium.
