The classic American Gold Eagle coin has been a staple in collectors’ portfolios since its release in 1986 when its iconic design took the bullion world by storm. Each American Gold Eagle is made of 91.67 percent fine gold with an additional alloy of 3 percent silver and 5.33 percent copper making it a more durable coin. Each coin’s weight, purity and content is guaranteed by the U.S government, backed by the U.S. Mint, and is IRA eligible. The 1 oz American Gold Eagle has a face value of $50 and is considered legal tender.
GOLD EAGLE COINS
The American Gold Eagle coins are considered to be the official gold bullion coin of the United States of America, and the gold used in each coin must legally come from mines located within the United States of America. Proud Lady Liberty graces the obverse side of the coin, striding forward on a mountaintop with rays of golden sun beaming down behind her. She holds a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other, representing both peace and enlightenment. The mint-issued Gold American Eagle Monster Box contains 25 sealed tubes, with each tube containing twenty 1 oz coins, for a total of 500 coins. The monster box offers the advantage of easily storing and transporting a large collection of Gold American Eagle coins in one simple and secure box.
The reverse side of the coin is perhaps as famous as the obverse and features a family of eagles designed by sculptor Miley Busiek. The coin shows a male eagle clutching an olive branch in his talons flying toward his nest where his mate awaits with her hatchlings. These popular gold coins are tangible assets making them easy to trade or sell when other forms of currency may be unreliable.
