APMEX individually seals each MintDirect® coin to ensure the authenticity and condition after the coins are removed directly from the mint boxes. Each coin is placed in a non-reactive plastic polymer authentication card to protect your coin’s finish.

This process seals the coin within the card, creating a tamper-evident package that guarantees your investment indefinitely. Learn more about the tamper-evident process here.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 1 oz actual Gold weight.
  • Packaged in RF-welded plastic polymer case (2 1/2" x 3 1/4"), protecting the coin's finish, with included authentication card.
  • Each authentication card features the MintDirect® designation, ensuring it comes directly from the U.S. Mint to you.
  • Obverse: Adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ famed Gold Double Eagle design, which features Lady Liberty with flowing hair, a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left.
  • Reverse: Designed by Miley Busiek showing a male bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female awaits with her young.
  • Produced by the U.S. Mint in West Point, N.Y.

APMEX has created a process to guarantee these coins are direct from the U.S. Mint to you to ensure that our customers receive only authentic U.S. Mint coins. MintDirect® is your symbol of guarantee that these coins were processed from tubes that come straight from mint-sealed "Monster Boxes", exactly as they were delivered, providing peace-of-mind when buying, holding or selling.

APMEX individually seals each MintDirect® coin to ensure that the authenticity and condition of each coin is protected after they are removed directly from the mint tubes. Each coin is placed in a protective authentication card composed of a non-reactive plastic polymer to protect your coin’s finish.

The sealing process seals the coin within the authentication card, creating a tamper-evident package that will guarantee your investment indefinitely. If the tamper-evident package has been opened in any way, you will know it. After the process is completed, the coin in tamper-evident package is removed from the machine and checked to ensure that the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished MintDirect® Single 2016 1 oz Gold American Eagle.

By using this process, APMEX can guarantee that the coins you receive are authentic and in the exact condition as they were when they left the United States Mint. The MintDirect® process gives investors confidence in their purchase, knowing that they can buy, hold or sell an authentic coin — guaranteed.

Note: The MintDirect® process does not guarantee protection from spotting or tarnishing that normally occurs in chemically active metals, such as Gold, Silver and Platinum.

I wanted to try a MintDirect gold American Eagle. The coin came flawless as expected. The seal is very nice, and it will protect the coin for many years to come. APMEX is a very reputable company, so it will be easy to sell in the future.

APMEX delivers.

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Its an Eagle. You get the gold, along with the filler from Uncle Sam. I prefer to buy Buffalo's, but the "boss" said she wanted some diversification in our gold holdings, so I got a few of these. As always, APMEX delivered right on time, I never worry about purchasing from them.

Pretty, but no match for pure gold

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I naively assumed that this coin was in the 99+% gold category. But when I compared it to a 99.99% coin, there is a very noticeable difference. It has a definite copper cast. Shame on me for not doing my homework. Everything else was as expected.

American Eagles are inferior compared to other bullion coins!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I'm happy that I purchased gold coins...however, if I knew that the American Eagle was less than .999 fine, I would have purchased another product (Maple Leaf). As far as I'm concerned, the Eagle is an inferior product compared to those coins classified as .999 fine. Shame on the American Mint for short changing people!


  • Pros
  • Attractive Design
  • Bottom Line
  • No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Merchant response: The Gold American Eagle coin contains a full troy ounce of gold. The US Mint adds additional metal to the coin which lowers the purity but makes the Gold more resistant to scratches. If you prefer a 24 Karat Gold US Mint product, you may be interested in the Gold Buffalo Coin.
