Gold American Eagle coins became the purest gold coin for sale in the United States since the 1830s when offered for the first time in 1986. Gold coinage in the US fell to .900 content in 1837 and remained there for almost a century until 1933 when gold coining was halted in the United States altogether.
Gold American Eagle coins are named with the nation of issue in the name because the last release of American gold coins in the early 20th century used the term Gold Eagle as a point of reference. Gold Eagles then were $10 circulation coins, with Quarter Eagles, Half Eagles, and Double Eagles issued in varying denominations.
In this Silver.com listing, you can purchase a 1 oz Gold American Eagle coin from varied years with abrasions. The term abrasions refers to the scratches, scuffs, and other contact-related marks that occur on coins when they collide against other objects, other coins in a storage drawer, or even against the interior surfaces of capsules that do not offer a tight seal.
Silver.com will select a Gold American Eagle coin for you when your order is processed for shipping. Our warehouse team selects a coin at this time, meaning we cannot guarantee a particular year of issue for you or the level/extent of abrasions present on the coin you receive.
All Gold American Eagle coins have the Lady Liberty design from Augustus Saint-Gaudens on the obverse. Liberty in this depiction was created in 1907 and used on the Gold Double Eagle coin from 1907 to 1933.
The reverse of 1 oz Gold American Eagle Coins features a family of bald eagles together. The male is depicted returning to the nest in flight, while a female steadfastly guards the hatchlings in the nest.
