|Colombian Gold Coins|
Colombia has resources of precious metals including platinum and gold. It is natural therefore that Colombia has a long history of issuing gold coins. Its earliest gold coins were escudos in various multiples because of its Spanish heritage, but from about 1821, its main denomination was the peso.

|Fijian Gold Coins|
The first coins issued for Fiji were in 1934 when Fiji was under British administration, and naturally used the old British pre-decimal system. A new decimal currency was introduced starting in 1969, two years before Britain converted to decimal. Since 1995, a small number of commemorative gold coins have been issued.
