Pre-1933 U.S. Gold Coins

Invest in American History

The U.S. Mint first issued gold coins in 1795. In 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 6102, which forbid the hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States, citing "hoarding" gold as stifling economic growth and furthering the Great Depression.

Millions of American gold coins were returned to the U.S. Treasury, melted, and then cast into gold bars. The surviving vintage of pre-1933 U.S. gold coins have extremely low populations, making them among the most desirable gold coins among collectors and investors.
