One of the things that is really interesting in the Grand Bazaar is the shops that sell golden coins. These coins are actually used to reserve money so if you have some dollars that you don’t know how to make profits from, you can easily buy a coin or couple of them and wait till the gold prices are higher and then you sell it but you need to make sure that you are buying at the right time because the gold prices might decrease not always increase. There are many kinds of coins, there is the Ata coin, and small coins and Ottoman coins and more kinds, each one of them carries different grams. This is why you find different prices for each one. Over all, these coins are made from pure 24 carat gold thus, you can literally save money and maybe make some profits when selling it later. Besides, they are easy to carry and you won’t need to get a safe for them.
