The History of the Gold American Eagle
The American Eagle was first introduced in 1986 and is the leading gold bullion coin among investors around the world. The United States mint copied the design of the $20 Saint Gaudens gold coin for the obverse (front) of the American Eagle; featuring Lady Liberty holding a staff and olive branch as she walks from the sun with the word ‘LIBERTY’ arcing above her. To the right of Miss Liberty is the date. It appeared in Roman Numbers from 1986 to 1991 and has appeared in Arabic Numerals ever since. The reverse (back) of the coin was designed by Miley Busiek and features a bald eagle swooping into a nest holding its family.
American Eagle gold coins are minted exclusively from gold mined in the United States. To ensure minimum scratching and marring small amounts of alloy are combined with 24-karat gold, resulting in a 22-karat gold coin. Each one-ounce American Eagle contains one full ounce of pure gold.
American Eagles are among the most commonly traded gold bullion coins on the market, which also gives them a unique advantage over other gold bullion coins. They can be easily bought and sold almost anywhere in the world because the United States government guarantees their gold content, weight, and purity.
