American Gold Eagles & Silver Eagles
The official United States gold bullion coin, the American Gold Eagle, was released in 1986. All American Gold Eagles are minted from gold mined in the United States and imprinted with their gold content and legal tender, or face value. You can buy the official gold bullion of the United States in a 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz or 1 oz denominations. Like many collectible coins, the Gold Eagle coin’s worth far exceeds its face value; it’s worth corresponds more accurately with its gold content. Some American Gold Eagles carry an even greater numismatic value. Proof American Gold Eagles are also available, usually in somewhat more limited quantities.
