October is the perfect month to purchase Gold American Arts Medals as it is National Arts and Humanities Month - the nation's largest collective annual celebration of the arts. The American Arts Medals are a part of United States history that bridges the gap between the era of outlawed gold (initiated in the early 1930s) and the start of the highly popular American Eagle bullion program in 1986. These medals honor popular American writers, singers, sculptors, architects, and other artists and are a great investment as a bullion medal.

Even after months I don't fully trust these being gold

By  Blargg

from Central TX


I bought these for their low premium over spot. I received the Grant Wood (1980) design that has no indication of metal content, and they have a copper-like sheen. I tend to be paranoid of counterfeits and never became fully convinced of them being genuine, especially because of the slight discoloration that looks like they're copper or brass on the surface (these have a little more copper than other 22k gold coins). Will definitely stick to other coins in the future when it comes to gold because confidence in having a store of value is a key reason I bought gold.

Very nice

By  DG

US Mint produced product at a price comparable to secondary market gold rounds. Very nice design, some very small scratches, but normal for secondary gold. Not a substitute for AGE or even a new assay-card generic - but if are looking for secondary market generic gold - this is a great option.
