The American Gold Eagle is the official gold bullion coin of the United States. The coin was minted through the Gold Bullion Act of 1985, and it was initially released to the public by the United States Mint in 1986. 

Brief History

The American Gold Eagle is known to be the highest soaring gold bullion coin. It is a coin authorized and minted in the United States since 1985. The Gold Bullion Act of 1985 mandated that golds are to be mined from natural deposits within the United States in making these coins. The law also stipulated that coins are to be made of 22-karat gold with a small amount of silver and copper in their alloy to make them harder. 

American Gold Eagle was not the first gold bullion coin ever created. It was only made when the purchase of South African’s Krugerrand was illegalized due to the Republic’s social segregation and resulted in limitations in the trade industry in the U.S. The United States used these limitations to seize the opportunity to create bullion coin.


American Gold Eagle is one of America’s most beautiful coins, with its obverse designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and its reverse by Miley Frances Busiek. The obverse has inscriptions of the word and image of “Liberty” and its year. The other side of the coin contains inscriptions of the words “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” “In God We Trust,” and an image of a male eagle flying above the nest of a mother eagle and its hatchlings while carrying an olive branch. These specific inscriptions signify the United States’ origin and identities.

American Gold Eagle appeared in four formats since its release. These include bullion coins that are well-struck and have decent quality on their surface; burnished coins with a matte-like appearance and a soft and excellent texture; proof coins that are higher in terms of their visual quality and on the level of characters; and reverse proof coins which have characters shaped as mirror-like and with frosted finishing. 


Gold bullion coins generally follow the market value of gold rather than its face value. The price of gold, like all other goods, tends to fluctuate. The face value of the Gold Eagles is proportional to its weight, with the exception of the ¼ oz coin. 

American Gold Eagle has four denominations that have corresponding face values. For instance, 1/10 of an ounce has a face value of $5, ¼ ounce has $10, ½ ounce has $25, and 1 ounce has $50. However, these face values do not directly tell the gold content of each. The lower the fraction of these coins, the larger the premiums they carry. 

The current spot price of gold, which changes regularly, is the basis of the coin’s purchasing power rather than the face value. The coins carry these face values $5, $10, $25, and $50. The American Gold Eagle is considered legal tender and can be used as payment for taxes and debt.
