The US Gold Eagle also known as the American Eagle is one of the most sought after gold coins. Its beautiful design is captivating and inspiring.

The American Eagle Coin was created in 1986 with Augustus Saint-Gaudens depiction of Liberty as seen previously on the $20 St. Gaudens Double Eagle gold coin which was minted from 1907-1933. Like its silver counterpart the American Gold Eagle has been produced and sold in bullion and proof finishes. They both feature a rendition of sculptor Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design which was first created for the nation’s first circulating half-dollar coin in 1916.

The Gold Eagle is 22k gold with a fineness of .916 making it a very durable coin. It contains 91.67% gold, 3% silver, and 5.33% copper. Even though the coin contains 22k gold its total pure gold content is equal to 1 troy ounce.

Gold Eagles that where minted 1986-1991 are dated with Roman numerals. In 1992, the U.S. Mint switched to Hindu-Arabic (modern number system) numbers for dating American Gold Eagles.
