20th Anniversary Gold American Eagle Coins

20th Anniversary Gold American Eagle Coins

Due to the American Gold Eagle being first produced in 1986, 2006 represents the 20th year anniversary of its production. To celebrate 20 successful years as the official gold coin in the US, the US Mint issued several coins, including a very limited gold set, to commemorate this anniversary. The 2006 American Gold Eagle coins produced offered more than just the standard Brilliant Uncirculated or Proof finishes. Reverse Proof was also introduced, which was a nice surprise for collectors.

History of the American Gold Eagle

The US American Gold Eagle represents the US entry into Gold Bullion investing and became the first gold coin to be minted, in the US, since 1933. When the Gold Bullion Act of 1985 was passed, the legislation demanded that there would be four weight sizes offered and two different types of coins minted. This resulted in the American Gold Eagle containing the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz in sizes.

There were also two conditions minted, brilliant uncirculated and proof (although the proof condition was only offered in 1 oz increments at first). The legislation also specified that the precious metals used, in the making of the American Gold Eagle, would come from US mines. Depending on the year, size of the coin, and market demand, the Gold Eagles' mintages vary greatly. The American Gold Eagle is released annually and displays the same design. The US Mint throws out its dies each year to ensure a crisply minted coin every time.
