The United States Mint has a rich history of producing gold coins, but prior to 1986 the vast majority of these coins were actually struck for circulation in the American economy. The issue of Gold American Eagle coins changed all that, introducing for the first time in over 150 years gold coins with a metal content in excess of .900.
Since 1986, the US Mint has produced other commemorative gold coins featuring 90% gold content. The coins are the same size and weight as the traditional $5 Liberty Gold and $5 Indian Gold coins, with each design celebrating a different iconic moment or person from American history.
In this unique product listing you have the opportunity to purchase $5 US Mint Gold Commemorative Coins. Silver.com can guarantee that these coins will be in either BU condition or available as proof versions. A BU coin has no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from the production process.
Proof coinage was originally used by mints as limited-issue strikings to test the dies created for larger circulation coining programs. Before releasing coins into circulation, mints would strike these coins as “proof” of the condition and features of the circulation currency.
The gold coins available here today come from varied years of production, generally ranging from 1986 to 2011. Silver.com will not guarantee the exact coin you’ll receive with your purchase today. The obverse and reverse design of the coin you get, as well as its status as a BU or proof specimen, is dependent upon the availability of coins in our warehouse when your order is processed for shipping.
