American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins
Authorized by the Bullion Coin Act of 1985, American Gold Eagle Bullion Coins quickly became one of the world's leading gold bullion investment coins. Produced from gold mined in the United States, these coins are imprinted with their gold content and legal tender "face" value. An American Eagle's value is based on the market price of its metal content, plus a small premium to cover coinage and distribution.
American Gold Eagles use the durable 22 karat Solid Gold standard established for gold circulating coinage over 350 years ago. They contain their stated amount of pure gold, plus small amounts of alloy (Copper for hardening and Silver for shine). This creates harder coins that resist scratching and marring, which can diminish resale value.
Minted to exacting standards, the obverse (front) design is inspired by what's often considered one of America's most beautiful coins: Augustus Saint-Gaudens' celebrated $20 gold piece, minted from 1907-1933. The reverse design, by sculptor Miley Busiek, features a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings.
Choose Eagles First
Gold has been mankind’s obsession since the dawn of civilization. Used as money in China more than 3,000 years ago, gold was first coined by the Romans in 50 G.C. America’s first gold coins – the original Eagles – were produced by the three-year-old United States Mint in 1795. Today, gold coins are not found in general circulation. Instead, they are often found in investment portfolios.
