No single mintage year of the Gold American Eagle coin has ever surpassed that of 1999. Amidst a slowing American economy and concerns over both Y2K and the Dotcom bubble, demand for the Gold American Eagle coins hit all-time highs that have yet to be matched in more than 30 years of availability. Today, the 1999 1 oz Gold American Eagle Coin is available to you online at Silver.com.

With the global economy in turmoil at the turn of the 20th century, the Gold American Eagle coin series surged to all-time highs across all four weights. While the 1999 1 oz Gold American Eagle coin set a new individual best with 1.505 million coins struck and sold, a record never matched since, that wasn’t the only record on the year.

The ½ oz coin and ¼ oz coin both set records for mintage as well. Most impressive though was the surge in demand for the 1/10 oz coin, which smashed sales records for any of the coins by reaching 2,750,338 coins sold. This wasn’t the first time the 1/10 oz outsold the 1 oz, but it was the greatest margin.

All 1999 1 oz Gold American Eagle Coins in this listing are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the production process at the mint.

On the obverse of the 1999 1 oz Gold American Eagle coin you’ll find Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ depiction of Lady Liberty. Saint-Gaudens created his original Liberty design in 1907 for use on an ultra-high-relief coin, but the US Mint lacked that capability in the early 20th century. It would nonetheless go down as the nation’s greatest design of all time, anchoring the $20 Gold Double Eagle through 1933.

The reverse of the Gold American Eagle coin features a design created specifically for it and used exclusively on the Gold Eagle collection. Miley Busiek created a design that features an American bald eagle family in its nest, with a male flying overhead and a female guarding a group of hatchlings.
