From 1980 to 1984, the United States Mint issued a series of commemorative gold medals as a means of competing with the demand for the Gold South African Krugerrand. With the Gold American Eagle still years away, the US Mint’s gold medals in this collection marked the first piece of gold sold by the US Mint since 1933. Today, 1 oz Gold US Mint Commemorative Arts Medals are available to you online at Silver.com.

Medal Highlights:

  • Ships to you inside of protective packaging!
  • Available from 1980 to 1984!
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of actual gold content.
  • Obverse features the portrait of various prominent Americans.
  • Reverse includes designs reflective of the individuals on the obverse.
  • Note: it is possible you’ll receive the same design if you purchase multiple medals.

The United States Mint introduced the 1 oz Gold US Mint Commemorative Arts Medals in 1980. The series included 10 designs in all, with five issued on 1 oz gold medals and five more issued on 1/2 oz gold medals. Frank Gasparro, the 10th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint and current Chief Engraver in 1980, designed the first image in the series in 1980.

All of the 1 oz Gold US Mint Commemorative Arts Medals in this product listing comes with protective packaging and varied availability. Silver.com will select your specific 1 oz Gold US Mint Commemorative Arts Medal at random once your payment has processed. We cannot guarantee or reserve a specific date or design.

On the obverse face of 1 oz Gold US Mint Commemorative Arts Medals is the design of one of five prominent Americans. Released from 1980 to 1984, the individuals featured on the obverse include (in order) Grant Wood, Mark Twain, Louis Armstrong, Robert Frost, and Helen Hayes. The designs on the obverse feature only the individual’s name on the 1980 and 1981 issues, with the 1982-1984 issues including the nation of issue and a date mark.

The reverse side of Gold US Mint Commemorative Arts Medals include varying designs based upon the individual featured on the obverse. The Grant Wood design has his famed American Gothic artwork while the Robert Frost design includes an excerpt from his poem “The Road Not Taken.”

US Mint Commemorative Arts Medals had varying mintage figures, with the 1980 and 1983 issues having the highest figures at 500,000. The medals were met with modest demand as the first gold offered by the mint since 1933, but paled in comparison to later issues of 1984 Olympic Gold Coins and the Gold American Eagle. The latter options arrived after President Ronald Reagan’s embargo on Gold Krugerrands in 1985.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
