Gold American Eagle coins were first struck by the United States Mint in 1986. These coins are the official gold bullion coin of the United States, and the gold content and weight of each coin is guaranteed by the federal government. All coins in the series are struck using only gold sourced from within the United States.
Each coin in this product listing has a perfect grade from the NGC. These coins have a brilliant luster and absolutely no blemishes, contact marks, or detracting flaws. The ultra-cameo finish identifies the design set as strong and frosted, overlaying a background field that is deeply mirrored and clear.
On the obverse side of each coin is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty. He created the image in 1908 for use on the $20 Gold Double Eagle, but passed away from illness just months before it ever appeared on that coin. The reverse side bears Miley Busiek’s depiction of a family of nesting bald eagles.
The United States Mint produces 1 oz Gold American Eagle Coins at multiple locations, but the bulk of production is handled by the coining presses at the facility in New York state.
