The American Gold Eagle Series

American Gold Eagle coins are the official gold coin of the United States since 1986, containing 91.67% pure gold.  Minted annually, there are several popular versions and four different weights. Besides the standard bullion coin, versions include proof, burnished uncirculated, and reverse proof coins.  The half-ounce (1/2 oz), with a face value of twenty-five dollars, weighing 16.966 grams. The other three weights are the large one ounce (1 oz.) size with a face value of $50 and weighing a hefty 33.931 grams; a half-ounce (1/2 oz), with a face value of twenty-five dollars, weighing 16.966 grams; a quarter ounce (1/4 oz) with a face value of $10 weighing 8.483 grams; a one-tenth ounce (1/10 oz) has a face value of $5 and weighing 3.93 grams. By law, each coin is guaranteed to contain an exact quantity of gold, which is mined exclusively in the United States from newly mined sources in America, and to meet the rigid quality standards of the U.S. Mint. The market value of these gold coins is tied to the value of their gold content, not their face value, and it fluctuates with market forces based on the current spot price of gold. However, there is a strong market for collector versions and low mintages, which carry a higher premium than their bullion counterparts.

Since they are available in four denominations, in several finish varieties, spanning the last 32 years, they sell at a variety of price points. The smaller fractional sizes, like the half oz. gold eagle coin, represent a great entry-level coin for almost any budget and make affordable, thoughtful gifts that will always be kept and cherished for generations to come.
