The American Eagle Coin program began back in 1986 with just a few options. Today, you can get American Eagles in three different finishes, multiple sizes, and even various metal types.
The American Gold Eagles come in multiple weights, including 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz. You can also get the coins in proof, bullion, and uncirculated finishes. However, not all finishes are available each year.
Finally, American Eagle Coins come in gold, as well as silver, platinum, and palladium. Each of the metal types features unique designs on both the obverse and reverse faces.
Each coin contains 91.67% gold by weight, giving each coin exactly 1/2 Troy ounce of 22-karat gold. They also include copper and silver. These other metals make the coins stronger and more durable.
On the obverse, Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Gold Double Eagle design is proudly showcased as it was designed in 1907 for use on those coins. In the image, Lady Liberty is shown walking away from the US Capitol building. The sun shines directly on her back, and she carries a flaming torch and an olive branch.
The reverse image is that of sculptor Miley Busiek’s bald eagle family rendition. The image shows a large male eagle as he comes home to the family nest with an olive branch between his talons. In the nest, his female mate and hatchling are shown waiting patiently for his return.
These coins ship in clear plastic flips directly from our secure facility to your door to provide protection during shipping. They are also useful during storage to keep dirt and debris off the surface of the coins.
