The Gold American Eagle is the official gold bullion coin of the United States of America. First minted in 1986 and issued by the US Mint, this coin has been become one of the world’s most recognized and sought-after coins, desired by both numismatists and investors alike.
The obverse of the Gold Eagle is adapted from Augustus Saint Gaudens’ famed Gold Double Eagle design of 1907, often regarded as the most beautiful design in American coinage. The design features Lady Liberty walking confidently ahead of the sun’s rays, carrying a torch and an olive branch.
The reverse of the coin is equally beautiful, depicting a male bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female eagle waits with her young. The design highlights the strength and importance of American families.
Minted from a 22 karat alloy that combines gold with silver and copper, the Gold American Eagle 1 oz. proof coin has a face value of $50, although its metal content is worth far more than its face value. The blanks used to mint these coins are hand-polished, and are then minted with polished dies and struck at least twice.
That gives the coins a frosted foreground and a mirror-like background. This stunning finish makes the proof Gold Eagles shine like no other. These proof Gold Eagles make a great and unique addition to any investment portfolio or numismatic collection.
