Gold American Eagle
The Gold American Eagle coin was introduced in 1986 and is a perfect way for investors to add physical gold coins to their portfolio. The coins themselves perfectly capture the beauty and independence of the majestic American Bald Eagle while paying homage to Lady Liberty herself.
The obverse of the Gold Eagle is an adaption from the 1907 Augustus Saint-Gaudens' Double Eagle design which is one of the most beautiful designs in the history of American coinage. The design of the coin features Lady Liberty triumphantly walking with a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. The olive branch is prevalent in the talons of the male eagle featured on the other side of the coin, returning to the nest he shares with a female eagle and an eaglet.
The Gold American Eagle can be purchased in proof sets of four or individually in denominations of $50, $25, $10, and $5 with weights of 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz of pure gold respectively. The fractional-weight Gold American Eagle offers an affordable way for investors to add these iconic, gold coins to their portfolio.
The production of the Gold American Eagle coins is based upon market demand, meaning production levels vary based on economic factors.
The Gold American Eagle coins are not the only option when diversifying your portfolio with gold coins. The Gold American Buffalo, Gold Canadian Maple Leaf, and the Gold Krugerrand are all popular choices amongst investors.
The U.S. Gold Bureau offers other precious metals, including silver, platinum, and copper as well as investment grade diamonds.
