The American Gold Eagle:

The American Gold Eagle is one of the official Gold Bullion Coin of the United States Mint. These coins are guaranteed by the U.S. government to contain 1 oz (troy ounce) of fine gold. By law, the gold must come from sources in America.  

  • Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 1 troy ounce of fine gold.
  • Has a face value of $50 USD.
  • Stamped with weight and purity (1 oz. fine gold).
  • The obverse of the American Gold Eagle features Lady Liberty carrying a torch and an olive branch.
  • Reverse Type 1 depicts a family of eagles in a nest. (1986-2021)
  • Reverse Type 2 features an upclose profile of a bald eagle. (2021-Present)
  • Widely available from dealers and the U.S. Mint.

This American eagle coin is alloyed with silver and copper to produce a more durable metal coin enabling it to withstand common usage without significant damage (compared to many popular pure 9999 gold coins. The resulting Gold American Eagle is a 22 karat coin with a purity of 91.67% gold, 3.0% silver, and the remaining 5.33% is copper. The Coin weighs more than an ounce so that the Actual Gold Weight (AGW) is 1 ozt. It is authorized by the United States Congress and is backed by the United States Mint for weight and content. 

Legal Tender:
The 1oz American gold coin has a face value of $50 and is considered legal tender. However, the trading value is determined by the price of spot gold. Like all commodities, this value fluctuates with market prices as determined by various commodity exchanges. In the United States, the primary determiner of the gold price is the NYMEX (New York Mercantile Exchange). Their actual selling prices vary based on the current spot price of gold and the premium for the demand in the current market. 

The obverse design features a rendition of Augustus Saint-Gaudens' full length figure of Lady Liberty with flowing hair, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left, with the Capitol building in the background on the left. The reverse design of the American Gold Eagle, by sculptor Miley Busiek, features a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and their hatchlings. The American Gold Eagle is truly an iconic design. 

The American eagle coin is IRA eligible. It is the only 22k coin that is IRA eligible as requirements generally are that gold bullion coins be from specific manufacturers and be 9999 fine gold, with the exception being the American Gold Eagle. 

If you are looking for a highly liquid, beautifully designed, and world recognized gold bullion coin, the 1oz Gold American Eagle is a great choice.

‘’I would highly recommend making online purchases from Stout Gold & Silver. I was a little hesitant at first because it was going to be my first time purchasing from them so I gave them a call and they took extra time to walk me through the process. Turns out there was not much to it, I placed the order for check payment, mailed off my check and they sent me an update when my order was being shipped out. All the pieces of silver came exactly as described and were undamaged, they did a very good job packaging the pieces. All and all, I am very satisfied and look forward to placing my next order with them. I hope this is helpful comment for anyone interested in doing business with them.’’

‘’Best Gold and Silver dealer bar none! And the safe storage is both affordable and very secure. This business also has the advantage of being owned run by Tom Stout, who i would trust with just about anything. Admittedly I'm friends with Tom as well as a customer but he really is a man of his word, if he says it, that's the way it's going to happen.’’

I work at a coin shop and it’s great to do business with other great coin shops. I highly recommend this shop! Thanks for the amazing coin!’’
