Iranian Pahlavi

Introduction to Iranian Pahlavi

Iranian Pahlavi coins represent a unique intersection of history and investment potential. These gold coins, minted during the reign of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran, offer investors a way to own a piece of Iranian history while diversifying their precious metals portfolio.

Iranian Pahlavi coins' worth varies depending on multiple elements such as the present-day gold market, how well-preserved the coins are, and their importance in history. As with other vintage world gold coins, Iranian Pahlavis can serve as a hedge against economic uncertainty and inflation.

Investors often consider Iranian Pahlavi coins for portfolio diversification. These coins offer a way to invest in gold while potentially gaining additional value as collectibles, which in some cases can be worth more than just their gold content.

Iranian Pahlavi Manufacturers

Most Iranian Pahlavi coins were minted by the Tehran Mint (Bank Melli Iran), which served as the main production facility. This mint, operated by the National Bank of Iran, was responsible for producing official Iranian currency, including gold Pahlavi coins, from 1937 to 1979.

While bars are common in many precious metal categories, Iranian Pahlavi primarily refers to coins. However, some private mints and refineries may produce commemorative or replica bars inspired by the Pahlavi era. These products are not official Iranian currency and their availability and specifications can vary.
