(Use vault code web5eag70)
Authorized by the Congress in 1985, American Eagle Gold Coins quickly became one of the world's leading investment coins. Produced from gold mined in the United States, American Eagles are imprinted with their gold content and legal tender "face" value. This $5 Gold Eagle contains 1/10 ounce of gold and as of July 2012, 8,922 have been certified in perfect MS70. First Strike condition, making it a rare coin worthy of both collectors and investors.
American Eagles use the durable 22 karat standard established for gold circulating coinage over 350 years ago. They contain their stated amount of pure gold, plus small amounts of alloy. This creates harder coins that resist scratching and marring, which can diminish resale value.
Minted to exacting standards, the obverse (front) design is inspired by what's often considered one of America's most beautiful coins: Augustus Saint-Gaudens' celebrated $20 gold piece, minted from 1907-1933. The reverse features a nest of American Eagles, symbolizing family, tradition and unity.
Gold has long enjoyed widespread appeal as an investment and storehouse of value. It is so rare that all the gold ever mined could fit into a cube measuring just 20 yards on each side. Most importantly, gold can play a role in diversifying an investment portfolio, since it can move independently of stocks and bonds. What's more, gold is a tangible asset - one whose beauty and artistry you can literally hold in your hands. When purchased in the form of legal tender bullion coins, gold can be affordable, as well as easy to buy and store.
