The American Gold Eagle Coin Series
Introduced in 1986, the Gold American Eagle series is one of the most popular Gold bullion coins on the market today. Collectors and investors alike opt for the Gold Eagle because of its attractive design, near universal recognition, and the fact that their purity and weight are guaranteed by the United States Treasury. The obverse design was initially created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the Double Eagle introduced in 1907 and is among the most artistic U.S. coin designs of all time.
Type 2 Gold Eagles
From their initial issue in 1986, the design of the Gold Eagle remained the same until 2021. However, this year, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of this iconic series, the U.S. Mint introduced an all-new reverse design, featuring an up-close portrait of a bald eagle eagerly anticipated by collectors.
PCGS Gold Eagles
Though Gold Eagles are prized by investors for their Gold content and U.S. Treasury backing, collectors are drawn to the Gold Eagles series as well, due to their attractive design and wide recognition. Collector interest in this issue is particularly high, being the first since 1986 to feature a new design. PCGS adds collectible appeal by certifying the authenticity and condition of each coin, then encapsulating it in a protective holder backed by a full guarantee. APMEX is pleased to offer this release graded MS-70, which indicates a superior coin with no visible flaws. Additionally, PCGS certifies select coins as First Day of Issue if they are verified to have shipped from the mint within the first day of release. With PCGS certified coins, discerning collectors can be assured of getting coins in the absolute finest condition and among the very first released.
