Gold American Eagle
Since 1986, the U.S. Mint has issued American Eagle gold coins in four denominations – $5 (1/10 oz.), $10 (1/4 oz.), $25 (1/2 oz.) and $50 (1 oz.). Each of these American Eagle gold coins is struck in 91.67% fine gold, and features Sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ inspired Liberty design (originally used on 1907-33 gold Double Eagles) on the obverse. The reverse bears Miley Busiek’s “family of eagles” motif. Choice Uncirculated (as opposed to Burnished Uncirculated) American Eagle gold coins are not available to the public directly from the U.S. Mint.
