History about the Gold Eagle: 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.
In 1986, the first year of issue, the Mint only made a 1 oz coin, with a $50 face value. In 1987, a 1/2 oz coin with a face value of $25 was added to the series. Each subsequent year, the Mint has produced 4 sizes: 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz ($10 face) and 1/10 oz ($5 face).
The front of the coin features a design that is inspired by the original $20 Gold Double Eagle, designed by Augustus Saint Gaudens and minted from 1907 to 1933.
