The history of Gold coins
1 oz Gold American Eagle coins are part of the modern American Eagle coin series that was first introduced in 1986 as a result of the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985. These, however, are not the first eagle coins produced in the United States, including the beautiful 1907 Gold Double Eagle coin designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Several Gold coins with eagles were minted in the 1800s and early 1900s before 1933 when President Franklin Roosevelt prohibited American citizens from holding monetary Gold. Citizens were asked to return the Gold coins that were melted down cast into Gold bars. Prior to 1933, Gold coins had been minted since the 1700s at the U.S. Mint.
