The Gold American Eagle has a rich and colorful history. The modern coins are fashioned after the designs of renowned artist and sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens which were used on the Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933. The redesign of the coin was issued by President Theodore Roosevelt after his desire for more beautiful American coinage. This led to the design recognized and revered today by many to be the most beautiful American coin ever minted. The obverse of the coin features Lady Liberty who represents victory. She is holding a torch to symbolize enlightenment and an olive brand to represent peace. She is backed by sunrays and the United States Capitol. The reverse of the coin feature a male and female bald eagle with their young to represent family, strength, and patriotism.

Coins minted from 1986 through 1991 are dated with Roman numerals whereas every 1 oz Gold American Eagle minted after 1992 is branded with Arabic numerals. These Gold bullion coins are available in multiple sizes including 1/10 troy oz, 1/4 troy oz, 1/2 troy oz and 1 troy oz. Each piece is identical in design save the markings on the reverse side of the coin that indicate its weight and face value.

In 1933, because of the Great Depression, the United States government made it illegal for citizens to hold monetary Gold. Citizens were required to sell their Gold certificates, coins, and bullion to the U.S. Treasury save a few exceptions including jewelry and numismatic coins. In 1975, private ownership of Gold was again made legal and in 1986, American mints began to make bullion coins. Pursuant to the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985, these coins are made exclusively from American Gold.

The coin is minted at the West Point Mint in New York. The mint deals in large amounts of precious metals and is responsible for striking all proof and uncirculated American Eagles in Gold, Silver, and Platinum as well as all Gold commemorative coins.

Beautiful Gold Color

By  Hyatt62

from Atlanta, Ga.

5.0

I love the color of the gold in all Gold Eagles. It really looks like gold, unlike the dull gold color of the Krugerrand. They are a few mint problems with some 2014 GAE (such as different shade spots but this does not decrease nor increase the value. All in all, I love this coin. All American Eagles are 22K gold, but it has a history of being the number one selling gold bullion. They are very easy to buy, sell or trade because of its popularity. Spot price is as low as any other, including generic 1 oz gold bars if you shop around. APMEX is famous for their quality, huge inventory and variety, shipping in well protected packages and I often get the pretty APMEX box for storage. One thing that I never knew has to do with the weight of gold and will briefly describe below. My first purchase of a 1 oz Gold Eagle was in early 2014. I purchased it through an APMEX auction and knew it was "The Real Deal." I briefly looked at this beautiful bullion and placed it in the safe with my collection. Two and a half years later I was testing a few 1 ozt Australian Kooks because I got them from an individual Ebay seller and needed to know if they were authentic. They passed the slide magnet test and weighted perfect at 1 ozt. For the same reason I decided to weigh some gold 1 ozt Krugerrands. The scale gave me a reading of 1.09 troy oz. I thought I made a big mistake and begin to panic. I then thought of weighing this 2014 Gold Eagle to test my scale. My scale gave me the same weight of 1.09 on this Apmex Eagle. I quickly called APMEX and the polite Customer Service Rep told me "Not to worry, your coin actually is the perfect at Gross Weight of 1.09 troy oz."

Durable American Gold coin

By  TT

from The Land of Oz

5.0

This Gold American Eagle coin is one of my top 3 favorite coins. It's probably not in my top two (that would be Gold American Eagle and Gold Canadian Maple Leaf) but this coin is right up there. While it's not 24k Gold it's 22 karat (.9167). It is 3% silver and also has a little over 5% copper in it as well. All of which make for an interesting gold color with slight copper hue tint to it. I would recommend this coin to everyone.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Durable
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Recognized Brand
  • Mint Condition

First time disappointed. Damaged coin.

By  Dan Ocean

There is a first time for everything it seems. I have purchased many BU coins from APMEX with complete quality satisfaction and delivery by them in the past. However, my last purchase of a 1 oz Gold Eagle came in damaged. It has a small scuff mark about the size of a pencil eraser below the eagle talons and a small ding near the rim, not exactly BU condition. I realize after opening the box it became my word against theirs as to condition.I should have looked it over without taking it out of the flip. Overall I will continue buying from APMEX - but this is one bad mark as to quality delivered.

Cons

  • Poor Condition

Got my gold eagle and tube of silver ones. My favorite design. As someone mentioned before I definitely can see a "dull" spot on the eagle side of the coin in the center which is not an issue with prior years. Hopefully this won't be an issue with '15 eagles. As for the 22k vs 24k debate... people need to look at the buy-back prices. You'll get the same $$$ for these eagles when you sell them as you would for a 24k coin. As always, happy with Apmex service and also like what they've done with their website.

"Flaw" in 2014's?

By  Robert

from NY

4.0

The "flaw" in the 2014's, mentioned elsewhere, is not a flaw specific to 2014. The dies that are used seem to wear prematurely above and below the flying eagle on the reverse. I have 2014's that are perfect, and I have 2014's that exhibit the "rough" surface areas that reviewers have noticed. I have seen this same issue with other years. The dies are not being replaced soon enough. The Silver Eagles have the same issue - in fact, it is much worse. Sometimes the Silver Eagles are mostly matte with only small patches of sheen here and there. The U.S. Mint is trying to save money by not switching dies until absolutely necessary. This results in some surface inconsistencies.

Cons

  • Worn Dies Being Used
