The Gold American Eagle's BackgroundWhen you know the background of Gold Eagles, you are better equipped to understand and appreciate what it means to own them. These coins were first minted in 1986, the year after Congress passed the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985. The act issued orders to the U.S. Mint to begin production of Gold bullion coins. Since the beginning, Gold Eagles have been a staple production of the U.S. Mint. Each year, the mint produces a number of coins to match current demands.
American Eagles bear a distinct design. The obverse features Lady Liberty herself as she stands in front of the rays of a brilliantly glowing sun. In one hand she holds her torch, and the other hand clutches an olive branch. This iconic picture harkens from one that originally made its debut more than 100 years ago, in 1907. The imagery on the coins' reverse is where they get their name. It depicts two eagles, a male and a female. The male is flying while the female protects her nest.
American Eagle coins are just one member of the family of collectible items that the U.S. Mint produces. You can display your eagle pieces amongst other iconic American coins, such as Gold Buffalos, Silver Eagles, and so much more.
