From its inception, the American Gold Eagle has captured the fancy of coin lovers everywhere. The American Gold Eagle is an official gold bullion coin of the United States. It was originally authorized by an act of Congress in 1985 and was first released to the public by the United States Mint in 1986. It has remained enormously popular ever since!

The Gold Bullion Act that created this series of coins mandates that the gold used to mint them must come exclusively from mines here in the United States. As a result, this coin represents a significant tangible asset in addition to it being a highly acclaimed work of art.

The American Gold Eagle features the famous ‘Standing Liberty’ design of the universally hailed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who created it with sophisticated detail and impeccable artistry. Its exceptional design has made this one of the most beloved and alluring gold coins in the modern era. The coin’s reverse was designed by Miley Busiek and depicts an eagle flying above its nest and waiting family.
