If you’ve ever wondered what is the most popular American gold bullion coin, the American Gold Eagle coin is the perfect answer. From its inception in 1986, the US Mint provided the epitome of elegance and timelessness with the creation of this unique American coinage. During this period in time, the average American citizen remained uncertain if they should invest in the precious metal industry, but after its introduction, high demand and equally high purchases broke records that set up the program to be an instant hit.
During 2002, the American Gold Eagle coin experienced a pick in interest amidst strong performance for the price of gold for the year. The price of gold broke definitively above the $300 level, beginning the year at $278 per ounce and closing at $347.20. This was the highest price for spot gold seen since 1997. A steady march upwards would continue for many years.
American Gold Eagles in this listing at JM Bullion come with a plastic flip for delivery. Each American Gold Eagle is a 22-karat gold specimen with a metallic alloy of 91.67% gold, 5.33% copper, and 3% silver.
On the obverse, it features a full-length view of Lady Liberty in a brilliant, flowing gown, walking away from Washington D.C with a flaming torch in one hand and a large, olive branch in the other. It was created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens who was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt to create a design just for the coin. On the reverse, you’ll find the image of a nesting American bald eagle group.
