2001 Gold American Eagle Proof 70
 

The Millennium Group of Gold American Eagles (spanning from 2001 to 2008) includes coins with significant investment performance, with an average annual increase ranging between 5% to 12% since 2010.

When the modern U.S. Mint began making gold coins in 1986, the first major release was the Gold American Eagle. Each year, the mint creates a standard “Business Strike” version of the coin, made for general bullion circulation, and a much smaller number of special issue “Proof” coins, specifically for investors and collectors.

Only a very small percentage of the proofs receives a “Proof 70” certification, a perfect score which establishes the rarity. The value of bullion coins floats up and down with the market price of gold, but rare coins, such as Gold Eagle Proof 70s, don’t trade on an index and are therefore much less volatile. Instead, their value is determined by supply and investor demand. These coins are also known as Investment Grade Coins.

The Millennium Group includes the first eight years of Gold Eagles produced in the 21st Century (2001 to 2008). Each set includes four coins 1/10oz ($5 face value), 1/4oz ($10), 1/2oz ($25), and 1oz ($50). In 2009, the Gold Eagle Proof was not minted. Instead, the U.S. Mint created the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle, with a design modeled after the original $20 Saint-Gaudens, widely recognized as the most attractive coin in U.S. history.
