There are four sizes you can add to your American Eagle coin collection:
American Gold Eagles are worth significantly more than their face values, but most gold bullion coins have face values so that they’re considered legal tender in their country of origin. Their status as legal tender allows them to be transported internationally without taxes and tariffs.
American Gold Eagles are made from 91.67% (22-karat) gold. The remaining alloy combination consists of 3% silver and 5.33% copper. This blend ensures that all American Eagle Gold Coins for sale are exceptionally durable.
Each coin still contains its designated weight in gold, however. For example, the one oz American Gold Eagle contains one troy oz of gold.
A troy oz is actually slightly heavier than a standard oz, weighing 31.1 grams as opposed to a standard oz that weighs 28.35 grams. This is the standard unit of measurement when weighing precious metals.
The most common strategy for collecting American Gold Eagles is to seek out specific years, denominations, or mints. Of course, plenty of people don’t consider these factors when seeking out American Eagle Gold Coins for sale. Some collectors enjoy building complete sets. For example, you could own all the one oz coins from the first year they were minted up until the current year.
The coin’s condition is another factor to keep in mind. While American Gold Eagles are bullion coins, they may also be considered gold numismatics. These are collectible coins that are valued for their rarity, market demand, and condition.
The condition of a coin is based on the Sheldon Coin Grading Scale, a 70-point scale that considers the coin’s strike, luster, surface preservation, coloration, and eye appeal. A coin with an MS70 grade is in perfect mint condition.
At Endeavor Metals, our numismatic coins are graded by reputable third-party services: the PCGS and NGC. They come in protective holders labeled with the coin’s grade, as well as its date, denomination, and unique barcode.
Add them to your American Eagle coin collection with confidence.
The American Gold Eagle was first minted in 1986, and the design remained unchanged until 2021, when the U.S. Mint introduced a new design on the reverse of the coin: a close-up portrait of an eagle’s head. The obverse had subtle modifications, such as slight changes in the sun’s rays and the stars.
The two different styles of American Eagle Gold Coins for sale can be identified by their label as type 1 or type 2.
