The history of 1/4 oz Gold American Eagles

Production of 1/4 oz Gold American Eagles was made possible by the Gold Bullion Act of 1985, which was passed by the United States Congress and signed by President Ronald Reagan. Gold Eagle coins went into production in 1986 with the stipulation they must be produced with Gold only from new Gold mines located in the United States. These Gold coins have a main distinction: The American Eagles are the only U.S. Mint Gold bullion coins guaranteed for purity, weight and content by the United States government. Though Gold Eagles are legal tender complete with a face value, the price of Gold Eagle coins is determined by the premium plus the spot price of Gold, which is different than the face value.

Why invest in 1/4 oz Gold American Eagles?

1/4 oz Gold American Eagles are an excellent choice if you are a new investor looking for Gold coins that are backed by the U.S. Mint. The smaller size of these Gold Eagles makes it easier for new investors, and investors with a smaller budget, to acquire U.S. Mint Gold coins at an affordable price. By purchasing these Gold coins over time, you can add to your portfolio without worrying about maxing out your budget. Look up the historical price of Gold and you will discover what many investors already know: Gold coins are a great way to balance out your portfolio.

Add 1/4 oz Gold American Eagles to your portfolio and gain the security that physical Gold provides.

Gold coins such as 1/4 oz Gold American Eagles can add security to your portfolio because physical Gold is recognized throughout the world as having intrinsic value. What this means is that should the economy fail, Gold Eagle coins and other kinds of Gold coins and bars will still be a viable option for selling or trading. While the price of Gold may fluctuate, historically you will find that the market for Gold is not closely tied to the movement of stocks and bonds in the market. Physical Gold like these Gold coins can provide stability to your investment portfolio.

Got a few of these to diversify the size range of my gold bullion. All the coins were in great condition and packaged nicely as you would expect from APMEX. Now that I have a variety of sizes, I can say that these 1/4 oz American Eagles are my favorite in terms of appearance (including enough heft to catch your eye) and ability to space out buying/selling as spot prices change.

I got a brand new, shiny 2012. I saved about $115 versus buying that year on purpose. It's also my oldest, since I just got started in 2014. I'd call that a win-win. Thanks, guys.

I am never dissapointed with Apmex

By  Gold Coin Collector

I buy gold coins only from Apmex ,I have bought many and can trust they are from the US MINT . I only buy American Gold and Silver and have never been dissapointed. Apmex sends it in a secure box that you actually need a tool to open it. They do not fool around .The products are always 5 star. I always go USPS and it comes to my mailbox very quickly.The pre 1933 gold coins are awesome ,that is the only way to describe the beauty in them. It is rare to say but this is one company from a to z they are 5 star in every step they never keep you wondering on the status of you coin.

Size is around 110-120% the size of an United States or Canadian 5 cent modern nickel, except thicker. The appearance of this coin is the standard Eagle design recognized here in the U.S.A. and around the world. Utilitarian in design, and perfectly made. The investment aspect is a decent price over spot price. Remember that usually, the 1 oz coin is the best price over spot per troy oz. as a precious metals investor. Ampex is the most competitive company in regard to price over spot levels I have found. Condition relating to Apmex grading, conservative in my experience. Apmex is the number one online reatailer with most people for building a collectible non-slab graded coin collection, because of their consistency and long history of professionalism. They also offer a decent stock of slabbed graded coins as well. They are more difficult to secure at times, as high graded coins are sought after the most. What I would say to my friends, Decent diversification option. Best to wait for a 1 oz instead. Thank you guys for reading, please like or dislike so I can improve my reviews to help everyone. Sincerely, Monday2Sunday

Fantastic Coin - Beautiful Condition

By  Silver-K

from Portland, Oregon

5.0

Beautiful Gold American Eagle coin from the US Mint! I haven't been able to afford a 1 oz. coin yet, so this 1/4 oz. fractional is a fantastic alternate solution for those with more limited financial resources. The coin is about the same diameter as a US nickel, but not as thick. The Air-Tite 22mm capsule is a perfect accompaniment to this coin. The capsule protects the coin and allows you to hold and view the coin without worrying about accidental damage to it. APMEX is by far the best online precious metal resource and I will be back for more!
