In 1834, the United States Mint made a decision to move its gold coinage away from so-called crown gold alloys. Original gold coins issued from 1794 until this point had 22-karat gold content in many cases, but the decision in 1834 moved the nation’s gold coinage to a purity of .900. This took effect in full in 1837.
With the introduction of the Gold American Eagle bullion coin in 1986, the United States Mint issued its purest gold coin in nearly 150 years. The Gold Eagles are available annually in the bullion collection with 1 oz gold, as well as ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz options.
The obverse of Gold American Eagle coins includes the iconic image of Liberty. Created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907, this depiction of Liberty features her full-length figure with flowing robe and hair as she walks away from the nation’s capital and into a new future.
On the reverse of the ¼ oz Gold American Eagle coins is a design from Miley Busiek. Created in 1986 exclusively for the Gold Eagle, the design depicts a female eagle guarding the hatchlings in the nest as a male eagle flies back to the nest with an olive branch in its talons.
