When Congress passed the Bullion Coin Act of 1985, the U.S. Mint's first major project was the creation of the Gold American Eagle 1oz coin, made entirely from gold mined in the United States. Each year, the U.S. Treasury creates a regular "Mint State" version of the Gold Eagle made for bullion market speculation and circulation, as well as an Investment Grade "Proof" version of the coin, designed for serious medium- and long-term precious metals investors.
Mint State "bullion" coins, including the Gold American Eagle, are priced according to the fluctuations of the Commodities Exchange (COMEX) Index and are available for purchase through our online store.
Due to the extreme limits of inventory and incredibly high investor demand, Gold Eagle Proof 70 Investment Grade coins are available for acquisition exclusively through our Private Client Services Division.
Gold Coins for True Investors
Gold Eagle Proofs that have been independently tested and certified in "museum quality" condition are considered "Investment Grade Coins" due to their rarity and premium value over the standard issue coins, much like the difference between a "common stock" and a "preferred stock."
As such, their value is not directly tied to the fluctuations in the market price of gold (also known as the "spot price"). Due to ever-increasing demand and a fixed supply, the value for these coins is more stable over time and the investment performance has out-paced gold bullion for many years. That's why the U.S. Gold Bureau recommends Investment Grade Coins as a long-term store of value, helping to protect your financial portfolio from dips in the bullion market and turbulent economic times like we are experiencing now, while setting you up for significant appreciation over time.
Investors select these coins for their rarity and market demand, which preserves their value, even when the commodities market fluctuates. The value and price of these coins is driven by their rarity, tracked as the "Proof 70 population," which indicates how many of these coins are in existence in the world. The lower the population, the higher the value. Serious investors work to assemble deep portfolios of these coins, accumulating a coin set from each year of mintage, plus multiple sets of the most prized years, when possible.
These sets are acquired by our company through estate sales, private auctions, seized bank vaults, buy-backs from past clients locking in their return, national coin shows, and through the local rare coin dealer network. Clients of our Private Client Services Division have the first opportunity to acquire these sets before they are made available to the general public.

Note: The U.S. Mint did not produce any Proof Gold American Eagle coins in 2009. Instead, a 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Coin was produced. Learn more
Gold Eagle Proof 70 Coins, The Rarest of the Rare
There are many times fewer proofs than mint state coins minted each year and only a very small percentage of those coins receive a perfect Proof 70 certification, which guarantees their condition for the life of the coin. These are the most prized coins for serious investors, who value the coins for their extreme rarity and benefit from the increasing demand for the coins, which drives the yearly investment performance numbers.

The U.S. Mint sold over a $1 billion in numismatic collectibles and struck over 16 billion coins in Moy’s first year as Director. During his tenure as leader of the U.S. Mint, the financial crisis, and recession spurred an unprecedented demand for gold and silver bullion.

*Chart is based on historical gold bullion prices as reported by the official Commodities Exchange (COMEX). Gold American Eagle performance is based on the average ask price of all the Investment Grade Proof 70 coins and sets included in the Classic, Modern and Millennium Groups as offered and presented by the U.S. Gold Bureau during the period shown. The population of the Ed Moy Signature Series coins is a subset of these populations thus they will be significantly lower.
