The Gold American Eagle, the official gold bullion coin of the United States, made its debut in 1986 under the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985. Available in tenth-ounce, quarter-ounce, half-ounce, and one-ounce denominations, the one-ounce variant holds the highest value, boasting a nominal face value of $50 and containing 91.67 percent fine gold.

Backed by the U.S. government, the Gold American Eagle ranks among the world's most sought-after gold bullion coins. Each coin bears the actual gold weight, measured in Troy ounces, on its reverse side, providing assurance of its authenticity.

The obverse of the Gold American Eagle showcases the iconic figure of Lady Liberty, her flowing hair and torch symbolizing enlightenment, while she extends an olive branch as a gesture of peace. In the background, the Capitol Building stands prominently, representing the seat of American democracy.

Originally featured on the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle coin minted from 1907 to 1933, this Liberty design is revered for its beauty, making its revival in 1986 a natural choice.

The reverse design of the Type 1 Gold American Eagle, crafted by sculptor Miley Tucker-Frost, depicts a male eagle clutching an olive branch as it soars above a nest containing a female eagle and two hatchlings—a powerful representation of the nation's resilience and vitality.

In contrast, the Type 2 Gold American Eagle presents a close-up perspective of the bald eagle, the national emblem of the United States, showcasing the intensity of its gaze and the intricate detailing of its feathers with striking clarity.

*With the release of the 2021 type 2 version of the Gold American Eagle, designed by Jennie Norris, you may receive a reverse design type 1 (Miley Busiek) or type 2 (Jennie Norris) design based on our current inventory.*
