Authorized by the Bullion Coin Act of 1985, the American Gold Eagle is the official gold bullion coin of the United States. First released the following year, the Gold Eagles quickly became one of the world’s leading gold bullion investment coins. Produced from gold mined in the United States, American Eagles are imprinted with their gold content and legal tender “face” value. An American Eagle’s value is based on the market price of its metal content, plus a small premium to cover coinage and distribution.
American Eagles use the durable 22 karat standard established for gold circulating coinage over 350 years ago. They contain their stated amount of pure gold, plus small amounts of alloy. This creates harder coins that resist scratching and marring, which can diminish resale value.
Minted to exacting standards, the obverse design is inspired by what’s often considered one of America’s most beautiful coins: Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ celebrated $20 gold piece, minted from 1907-1933. The classic reverse design was created by sculptor Miley Busiek and features a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings.
In honor of the 35th Anniversary of the stunning Gold and Silver American Eagles, the United States Mint completely revamped both coin designs in 2021! While the obverse of the Gold Eagle will remain unchanged, the reverse design features all-new artwork by AIP Artist, Jennie Norris.
