From 1794 to 1834, the United States Mint minted its gold circulation coins using a 22-karat “crown gold” alloy. However, in 1834, a change in the legal valuation of gold-to-silver was changed in the US, prompting the reduction of the gold content in American coins to 89.92%. In 1837, another transformation took place, shifting the gold content to achieve a 90% purity level, combined with 10% copper.
This composition remained in place until 1933 when gold coining in the United States ceased permanently. When the US Mint reintroduced gold coins with the launch of the bullion Gold Eagle. These modern Gold Eagles feature 22-karat gold, consisting of 91.67% gold, 5.33% copper, and 3% silver.
