These Gold American Eagle Coins, minted at West Point, N.Y., are fashioned after what some consider the most beautiful coin ever minted in the United States: The Augustus Saint Gaudens Gold Double Eagle Coins. These original Gold coins were $20 coins and were in circulation until the height of the Great Depression in 1933 when President Franklin Roosevelt prohibited U.S. citizens from holding monetary Gold. The spirit of these American Eagle Coins lives on in the APMEX collection of 1 oz Gold Eagle coins that feature a modified obverse side of the original with Lady Liberty walking confidently against the sun’s rays on this 1 oz Gold Eagle. The design of the original Gold coin was created by Saint-Gaudens, who was commissioned by President Roosevelt in 1904.
Roosevelt asked for the Gold American Eagle coin design because he wanted to elevate the artistic value of U.S. Mint coins by employing a sculptor like Saint-Gaudens. After many delays, the Gold coins were finally released – only to face controversy because the 1907 and 1908 coins did not feature the U.S. motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." The modern American Eagle Coins were first released in 1986, and these 1 oz Gold Eagle coins have a modified version of the Saint-Gaudens design on the obverse. Like the originals, these 1 ounce Gold coins are a favorite among collectors who love holding these pieces of art, the American Gold Eagle Coins, in their hands.
With APMEX Gold coins, you can add both value and historical significance to your collection. Modern 1 oz Gold Eagle Coins are America's preferred Gold coins because the 1 ounce Gold coins are great investments that will hold their value, as well as beautiful pieces of art to display in your collection. And who wouldn't want a stunning original Saint Gaudens Gold Double Eagle coin? Prized among all Gold American Eagle coins, the 1933 Saint Gaudens Gold coins are the rarest because none ever circulated after President Roosevelt's 1933 prohibition – but several went missing before being melted down. When the missing 1933 Double Eagle Coins have surfaced, the Gold coins have been valued at millions of dollars each – and the U.S. government has sought to have the coins returned as it is illegal to own the stolen 1933 Gold coins. It is legal to own the earlier Gold coins, and APMEX has a full selection of vintage Double Eagles and contemporary American Eagles available to add to your collection.
