Introduced to numismatics in 1986, the Gold American Eagle coin is struck each year in four weights: 1 oz., ½ oz., ¼ oz., and 1/10 oz. The 1 oz. coin is the most popular bullion coin in the Gold American Eagle series. Production of the 1 oz. coin was high when the coin was launched, dipped in the 1990s, surged at the end of the 20th century, dipped ahead of the Great Recession, and rebounded again in recent years.
The 2015 1 oz. Gold American Eagle coins for sale on Silver.com today come with an MS70 grade from the PCGS. A coin in MS70, or Mint State 70, condition is considered perfectly struck. Each coin comes in a secured package that includes a Gold Foil Label, displaying the year of minting, weight, and grade of the coin, as well as the grading service issuing the grade.
On the obverse side of each Gold American Eagle is the depiction of Lady Liberty that first appeared on the Saint-Gaudens $20 Gold Double Eagle coin in 1907. Saint-Gaudens’ design depicts Lady Liberty walking forward with a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. The reverse bears Miley Busiek’s depiction of a family of bald eagles in their nest. A sculptor by trade, Busiek created the design specifically for this coin program.
The United States Mint uses its West Point Mint facility to produce the majority of Gold American Eagle coins. Other mints in the US Mint system are tasked with producing Gold American Coins, but production is usually limited to special-edition coins.
