  • Description:

    The US Mint decided to try something new this year and will be releasing 2 American Gold Eagles. The first eagle will be released in January, keeping the same iconic design that has been maintained since 1986. Later, in the year, the US Mint will release a Type 2 version that will display a different reverse design than in the past.

    In 1986, the United States began striking gold bullion coins to compete with world bullion competitors, such as the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf, the South African Gold Krugerrand, and the Chinese Gold Panda. The value of these coins was intended to be tied directly to their metal value, although in some cases (where mintages were low), a collector market has developed. The bullion value of these coins far outstrips their face value, making them the ideal product for numismatists and investors.

    Coin Highlights
    -Brilliant Uncirculated
    -Obverse: The obverse follows the artistic design created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, for the $20 Gold Double Eagles, issued from 1907-1933. Saint-Gaudens was exclusively picked by president, Theodore Roosevelt, to design an image that would be a part of US history, while also reinvigorating US gold coinage. The Lady Liberty design has been used as a symbol of patriotism since the US began minting their own currency and her message of courage and power still reigns true.
    -Reverse: The reverse reveals the US Seal: a large eagle with outstretched wings, talons holding branches and arrows, and a shield to protect its chest.
