The Gold American Eagle coin is the most diverse offering you’ll find in terms of gold bullion from the United States Mint. These coins are available annually in bullion, proof, and burnished versions, with four weights available in bullion and proof ranging from 1 oz to ½, ¼, and 1/10 oz. The 1997 1 oz Gold American Eagle Coin is available to you online today at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you in a protective capsule.
  • Twelfth coin in the Gold American Eagle series!
  • Mintage limited to 664,508 coins only!
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of actual gold content in BU condition.
  • Issued face value of $50 (USD) by the United States.
  • Obverse features Liberty from Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
  • Reverse includes the image of a family of nesting bald eagles.

When originally introduced in 1986, the Gold American Eagle was available in bullion with all four weights from 1 oz down to 1/10 oz. The proof coins in the series were only available that first year in 1 oz weights. Over the next two years, the ½ oz coin would be introduced followed by the ¼ and 1/10 oz options.

Gold Eagle mintage in 1997 exploded dramatically after hitting a record low in 1996 of just 189,148 coins. The total of 664,508 in 1997 was nearly six times that of the prior year, and the highest mintage figure for the series since 1987 when they were available for just the second year ever. Once again, the 1/10 oz coin served a serious contest to the 1 oz coin, but with 528,515 did not manage to surpass the 1 oz coin.

On the obverse of all 1997 1 oz Gold American Eagle coins you’ll find Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Liberty design. Introduced in 1907, Saint-Gaudens’ design has been hailed as the greatest coin design in American history and features Liberty holding her torch aloft as a guiding light for the nation.

The reverse of the Gold American Eagle coin depicts an American bald eagle flying over a family nest that contains a nest full of hatchling under the careful attention of a female bald eagle. This was created in 1986 by Miley Busiek, and it features only on the Gold American Eagle coin.

All 1997 1 oz Gold American Eagle Coins listed here are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, though you’re likely to notice minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the process of striking blanks at the mint.

We encourage all Silver.com customers to contact us at 888-989-7223 with questions. You can also reach out to us online using our live chat and email services.

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.

How can I contact you?

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

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.
