The release of this Type 2 Gold Eagle Proof will mark the first time in the coin program’s three-and-a-half-decade tenure that the Gold American Eagle will feature a revamped reverse design mirrored by an enhanced iteration of its original obverse design. Be the first to invest in the full 4 coin set to benefit from its growth potential.
When the modern U.S. Mint began making gold coins in 1986, the first major release was the Gold American Eagle. Each year, the mint creates a standard "Business Strike" version of the coin, made for general bullion circulation, and a much smaller number of special issue "Proof" coins, specifically for investors and collectors.
Only a very small percentage of the proofs receives a "Proof 70" certification, a perfect score which establishes the rarity. The value of bullion coins floats up and down with the market price of gold, but rare coins, such as Gold Eagle Proof 70s, don't trade on an index and are therefore much less volatile. Instead, their value is determined by supply and investor demand. These coins are also known as Investment Grade Coins.
The Emerging Group includes the most recent Gold American Eagle sets, dated 2021 to the current year. Each set includes four coins 1/10oz ($5 face value), 1/4oz ($10), 1/2oz ($25), and 1oz ($50).
