The American Gold Eagle is an official gold bullion coin of the United States. Authorized under the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985, the Gold Eagle Coin was first released by the United States Mint in 1986. See above for the current price to buy American Gold Eagles coins from SWP.

Gold American Eagle Coin from SWP

SWP has the 1 oz gold American Eagle coins for sale, whether you are looking for Gold Eagles for delivery or storage in one of our offshore vaults. Because the term “eagle” also is the official United States designation for pre-1933 ten dollars gold coins, the weight of the bullion coin is typically used when describing American Gold Eagles (e.g., “1/2-ounce American Gold Eagle”) to avoid confusion. This is particularly true with the 1/4-oz American Gold Eagles, which have a marked face value of ten dollars.

Gold Eagle Purity

The 1 oz American Gold Eagle is made with 22 kt gold alloy which is an English standard traditionally referred to as “crown gold.” Crown gold alloys had not been used in U.S. coins since 1834, with the gold content having dropped since 1837 to a standard of 0.900 fine for U.S. gold coins. For American Gold Eagles, the gold fraction was increased again to .9167 (or 22 karats). The 1 oz Gold Eagle is authorized by the United States Congress and is backed by the United States Mint for weight and content.

Gold Eagle Coin Design

The Gold Eagle Coin’s obverse design features a rendition of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ full-length figure of Lady Liberty with flowing hair, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left with the Capitol building in the left background. The Gold Eagles’ design is taken from the $20 Saint-Gaudens gold coin, which was commissioned by Theodore Roosevelt to create coins like the ancient Greek and Roman coins. The Gold Eagle's reverse design, by sculptor Miley Busiek, features a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings.

The Gold American Eagle Coin is eligible for Precious Metals IRAs.
