The history of Gold American Eagles

The modern 1 oz Gold American Eagle tells an important part of the story of Gold in American history. The 2016 1 oz Gold American Eagle, and all American Gold Eagles, are fashioned after what is often considered the most beautiful coin ever minted by the U.S. Mint, the Augustus Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle coins. The vintage American Double Eagle Gold coins circulated with a $20 value until the height of the Great Depression in 1933, when citizens were prohibited from holding monetary Gold. Gold coins from the U.S. Mint would not make another appearance until the 1980s when the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985 would make it possible for the first release of the modern Gold American Eagle in 1986.

Why invest in the 2016 1 oz Gold American Eagle?

The 2016 1 oz Gold American Eagle is iconic and collectible, but it also has strong bullion investment appeal. Although these American Eagle coins have a higher premium over spot price of Gold than a Gold bar, investors like that the Gold Eagle coin has legal tender status and is internationally recognized. This Gold American Eagle coin contains 1 oz actual Gold weight and is a hard asset that can be sold and traded. Due to the Gold content, these Gold coins are also eligible for Precious Metals IRAs.

Know the value of Gold coins that can appeal to collectors and investors.

Gold coins with numismatic value are Gold coins that appeal specifically to collectors, who are looking for something rare, unique, historically significant or aesthetically pleasing. Collectors seek Gold coins like early 20th century American Double Eagle Gold coins or other prized Pre-1933 Gold coins like the Indian Gold Half Eagle. Conversely, investors seek out Gold coins like the 2016 1 oz Gold American Eagle focusing on raw Gold value. The beautiful design and historical value are a bonus, but not the main driver to purchase. This modern American Eagle Gold coin is the ideal Gold coin for investors because it is priced at an affordable premium above the Gold spot price and has high Gold content.

Very Happy New Investor!

I'm a regular 9am to 5pm kind of guy, that works like everyone else. Not a rich investor, so when I decided to buy the American Gold Eagles for the first time, I was kind of nervous. Nervous about the entire process, considering it was a lot of my money going to people I have never seen before. APMEX's site made it easy for me to compare against other dealers. APMEX may be a little bit more expensive, but the quality and the assurance they give you for being a trusted company makes you feel at ease. I received my orders, and 4/5 of the American Gold Eagles were in absolute mint and pristine condition, the other one kind of looked like it was mishandled or might have been struck by another coin during minting. Regardless, my purchase arrived safely, and APMEX kept me up to date with each step of the process. Although this may only look like a once or twice a year investment, I will definitely only do business with APMEX; because I don't see where else I could feel this confident about purchasing precious metals that will impact my retirement in the long run.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Easy to Sell
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Common (higher mintage)

Add 2016 1 oz Gold American Eagle coins to a Precious Metals IRA.

Many investors add 2016 1 oz Gold American Eagle coins to their Precious Metals IRA. To add these Gold coins to an IRA, you will first need to set up a custodian, which APMEX can help you do. Then, buy these Gold coins and other qualifying Precious Metals, which will be shipped directly to your account. Gold coins must be .995 fine to qualify for IRAs, with the exception of Gold American Eagles. Once your Gold coins and other Precious Metals are in an IRA, any profit is not taxed just like with other IRAs, but when you are ready to remove assets, you will want to consult your tax adviser about any taxes owed.
