American Gold Eagles

American Gold Eagle Coins are official gold bullion coins of the United States. They were first introduced by the United States Mint in 1986 and have since become one of the most popular and recognizable gold coins in the world. Here's an overview of American Gold Eagle Coins:

1. Denominations: American Gold Eagles are available in four different denominations:

$50 - 1 oz (one troy ounce of pure gold)

$25 - 1/2 oz (half troy ounce of pure gold)

$10 - 1/4 oz (quarter troy ounce of pure gold)

$5 - 1/10 oz (one-tenth troy ounce of pure gold)

2. Design: The obverse (front) of the coin features a design of Lady Liberty striding forward, holding a torch and an olive branch. This iconic image was originally created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the Double Eagle coin in the early 20th century.

3. Reverse: The reverse (back) of the coin displays a family of bald eagles, symbolizing American family values, with a nest, hatchlings, and an adult eagle.

4. Purity: American Gold Eagle Coins are made of 22-karat gold, which means they are composed of 91.67% gold and 8.33% copper and silver alloy. This alloy makes the coins more durable and resistant to scratching and wear.

5. Legal Tender: These coins are considered legal tender in the United States, with face values assigned to each denomination. However, their intrinsic gold value far exceeds their face value.

6. Investment and Collectability: American Gold Eagle Coins are sought after by both investors and collectors. Investors value them for their gold content and as a means of diversifying their portfolios with physical precious metals. Collectors appreciate the coins for their historic designs and limited mintages in some years.
