Gold American Eagle Coin Series

The American Gold Eagle coin series is a collection of bullion coins that are minted by the United States Mint. The series was first introduced in 1986, and it has been a popular choice for investors and collectors ever since.

Here are some key facts about the Gold American Eagle coin series:

  • Obverse design: Based off a famous design created by famed coin designer Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the obverse of the coin features a design of Lady Liberty holding a torch and an olive branch.
  • Reverse design: The reverse design for the Gold American Eagle has featured two different designs, one from 1986 to 2021 and the second design from 2021 to present. The original, Type 1 reverse design of the coin features a family of eagles designed by Miley Busiek. The Type 2 design features a bold, close-up image of the head of an American Bald Eagle and was designed by Jennie Norris.
  • Denominations: The Gold American Eagle coins are minted in four different denominations: 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1 oz. The face value of the coins ranges from $5 to $50, although their true value is determined by the current market price of gold.
  • Purity: The Gold American Eagle coins are made from 22-karat gold, which means that they are composed of 91.67% gold and 8.33% copper. This alloy gives the coins a slightly reddish hue and makes them more durable than pure gold coins.
  • Availability: The Gold American Eagle coins are widely available from bullion dealers, coin shops, and online retailers. They are also eligible for inclusion in self-directed IRA accounts.
  • Minting: The coins are minted at the West Point Mint in New York, although some proof versions of the coins have been minted at other facilities.
  • Legal tender: Although the true value of the coins is determined by their gold content, they are still considered legal tender in the United States. This means that they can be used to settle debts, although their face value is significantly lower than their actual value.

Overall, the Gold American Eagle coin series is a popular choice for investors who want to add physical gold to their portfolios, as well as for collectors who appreciate the coins' classic design and historical significance.

History of the U.S. Mint

The United States Mint is a federal agency responsible for producing circulating coinage, commemorative coins, and bullion. Here is a brief history of the U.S. Mint:

  • Establishment: The U.S. Mint was established by Congress in 1792 with the passage of the Coinage Act. The Mint was created in response to a shortage of coins in the United States, which had to rely on foreign currency for many transactions.
  • Early years: The U.S. Mint's first facility was in Philadelphia, and it began producing copper, silver, and gold coins in 1793. Other mint facilities were later established in other cities, including New Orleans, Charlotte, and Dahlonega. The Mint also produced commemorative coins for events such as the Columbian Exposition in 1892.
  • Expansion and modernization: In the early 20th century, the U.S. Mint expanded its facilities and began to modernize its production methods. It also began producing paper currency in addition to coins. During World War II, the Mint played a key role in producing critical supplies such as ammunition and medical equipment.
  • Recent history: Today, the U.S. Mint operates six facilities across the country, including the headquarters in Washington, D.C. The Mint produces circulating coins, commemorative coins, and bullion, and it also provides metal refining and other services to other government agencies. In recent years, the Mint has produced commemorative coins to mark significant events such as the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.

Throughout its history, the U.S. Mint has played a key role in American commerce and culture. Its coins and currency have become iconic symbols of American identity and history, and they are collected by millions of people around the world.
