The Background of American Gold EaglesIf you are a collector who appreciates the story behind every piece you own, you will enjoy knowing the background of American Gold Eagles. The United States Mint first produced these coins in 1986, one year after Congress passed an act that ordered the mint to begin producing bullion coins. The act also set out strict standards for these coins. Since then, Gold American Eagles have been a staple of the U.S. Mint.
One of the first things you will notice about Gold American Eagles is their striking and memorable design. The obverse features Lady Liberty. In one hand, she holds her torch high. The other hand clutches an olive branch, a symbol of peace, with the rays of the sun shining in the background. This design harkens all the way back to 1907. The coins' reverse features a double eagle design, showing a male eagle flying toward a female and her nest. These images embody the ideals that shaped the United States so many years ago.
Whether you want to buy Gold Eagle coins as an investment or because you appreciate their aesthetic beauty and quality striking, you can rest assured that buying these pieces is a decision you will not regret.
