On August 14, 1974, just five days after taking office from Richard Nixon, President Gerald Ford signed Public Law 93-374, allowing U.S. citizens to once again buy, sell, trade or own Gold coins. The U.S. market and consumers were ready to own Gold coins once again, but our government wasn’t quite ready to compete for worldwide dominance in the Gold coin marketplace.
In fact, it wasn’t until Ronald Reagan signed the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985 that our government was ready to compete for the world’s Gold investors. This Act allowed the American Gold Eagle coins to be minted and mandated that all Gold used in these new coins must be from “newly mined domestic sources.”
The Gold Bullion Coin Act authorized 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz and 1 oz Gold coins. The obverse design is a representation of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ classic $20 Gold Double Eagle design, minted from 1907 until 1933. It is widely considered the most beautiful of all American coins. The reverse is a modern design displaying a family of eagles.
The first Gold American Eagle bullion coins were struck in 1986. They have been minted in all four denominations every year since.
In the last 33 years, Gold American Eagle bullion coins have become very widely collected because of the collecting interests of both bullion collectors and coin collectors. Complete sets of one of each denomination coin are popular but are expensive as the total set would contain over 61 ounces of Gold!
