Initially released in 1986, the Gold American Eagle is today the United States' official gold bullion coin. Here, we are offering - based on availability - the smallest version of this coin. Weighing about a tenth of a troy ounce, it is more modestly-sized than a dime and has a face value of $5. 

The Gold American Eagle was first produced as a result of 1985's Gold Bullion Coin Act, which the United States Congress passed to allow the government to mint gold bullion coins akin to the Krugerrand, a South African gold bullion coin which had risen to global popularity. 
The coin uses a 22 karat gold alloy which, prior to 1986, had not been featured in United States coins since 1984. This alloy has often been referred to as "crown gold." This type of gold can be traced back to England during the reign of King Henry VIII, when it was used to provide more wear-resistant gold sovereign coins than the 23 karat gold coins that had previously been circulating in the country. 

While this Gold American Eagle bullion coin is, through an inscription on the coin itself, declared to contain 1/10 on an ounce of fine gold, it actually includes - to be more precise - 0.1091 troy ounces of 91.7 percent pure gold. This level of purity, affected by the inclusion of alloyed copper and silver, is meant to give the coin better scuff-resistance than bullion, where the gold purity is no less than 99.9 percent. 

This Gold American Eagle is, like every other version of this bullion coin, also noteworthy for its design. That design incorporates, on the obverse, the figure of Liberty stepping forward while holding a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. This symbol has, for centuries, been used to symbolize peace in various Western countries. 

It is apt, therefore, that when the sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens originally produced this design, the U.S. government's intention was for national coins to bear a strong similarity to ancient Roman and Greek coins. This design of a walking Liberty debuted on what has become known as the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle coin, which was minted from 1907 until 1933. 

The Gold American Eagle coin's reverse depicts another long-enduring symbol of the United States: a bald eagle. The most visually prominent eagle in the reverse design crafted by Miley Busiek is a male eagle in flight as it carries an olive branch before a female eagle who is in a nest with two eaglets. 
A $5 Gold American Eagle bullion coin, which measures 16.5 millimeters in diameter and 1.26 millimeters in thickness, can be a great buy for diversifying an investment portfolio. Its resilience against the possibility of scuffing also means that once it has entered your possession, the coin could long stay in as good a condition as it was on the day that you first picked it up. 

This could be good news should you later decide to sell it. After all, the ease of selling a Gold American Eagle bullion coin is one reasons investors are so interested in it. There is now a solid aftermarket for gold eagles. It could become even stronger years on from now.

All that glitters is gold!Review by goldstar1963
The process, from start to finish, couldn't be easier. From talking to the sales rep, to receiving my package, hand delivered, was fast and secure. I've never had more hours of enjoyment then that of spending time going over the fantastic details in the design of the variety of coins that I've purchased. The luster of the splendid quality of pure gold is beyond compare! And to share my coin collection with all it's beauty with my children is priceless! Knowing that then share my enthusiasm for coins only reaffirmed my decision in investing in these particular coins. Stamped on the face of each coin is a different time in history. I couldn't think of a more effective way to bring history to life than looking at the time capsules captured in gold coins! (Posted on 8/17/2016)

Not often these days does a customer service rep contact you to ask about your satisfaction before you've received a product. The people at United States Gold Bureau expressed a keen interest in my satisfaction. I will certainly be doing business with them in the future. (Posted on 2/19/2015)
