Information about Gold American Eagle 1 oz
The Gold American Eagle is a US currency gold coin introduced by the US Mint in 1986, denominated in US Dollars. Its creation was prompted by the US response to the embargo on Krugerrand imports, enacted due to apartheid sanctions. Consequently, the Gold American Eagle quickly gained widespread popularity as a bullion coin. Notably, in 1986, the Silver American Eagle became the first silver coin manufactured in the United States.
Similar to the Krugerrand, the Gold American Eagle possesses a fineness of 916.7 (22 Karat). This increased hardness is achieved through the inclusion of an alloy consisting of 5.3% copper and 3% silver, setting it apart from other bullion coins crafted from pure gold. The American Eagle is available in various denominations, including 1/10 ounce, 1/4 ounce, 1/2 ounce, and 1 ounce, each representing values ranging from 5 to 50 US Dollars. Importantly, the coin holds the status of legal tender within the United States.
The design of the gold coin
On the obverse side of the Gold American Eagle, you'll find the enduring portrayal of "Lady Liberty," holding a torch in one hand and an olive twig in the other. While the year of minting was represented in Roman numerals from 1986 to 1991, it is now inscribed in Arabic numerals. On the reverse side, the coin features the image of a Bald Eagle, the emblematic bird of the United States.
