American Gold Eagle Value (Price)

Gold bullion coins generally follow the market value of gold rather than its face value. The price of gold, like all other goods, tends to fluctuate. The face value of the Gold Eagles is proportional to its weight, with the exception of the ¼ oz coin. 

The current spot price of gold (which changes daily) is the basis of the coin’s purchasing power rather than the face value. The coins carry these face values $5, $10, $25, and $50. The American Gold Eagle is considered legal tender and can be used as payment for taxes and debt.

Overview

The official gold bullion coin of the United States is called the American Gold Eagle. The coin was minted through the authority of the Gold Bullion Act of 1985, and it was initially released to the public by the United States Mint in 1986. 

Details

The American Gold Eagle is available in four different weights of 1/10 oz, ¼ oz, ½ oz, and 1 oz denominations. The US government makes sure that the coins contain the actual gold in troy ounces. The Gold Bullion Act of 1985 also states that the gold that is used in minting the coins must come from sources in the United States. The sale of gold bullion coins and other coin types are decreed by the US mint to help pay the national debt.

Design

The American Gold Eagle coin’s obverse design features Lady Liberty with her hair flowing with the wind while holding an olive branch on her left hand and a torch on the right and the capitol building in the background. The words “LIBERTY” is also featured on the coin along with the year that it was minted. The obverse side is designed by sculptor Augustus Saint-Gauden.

On the reverse side of the American Gold Eagle features two eagles, one male eagle carrying an olive branch on its talons flying over a nest with a female eagle and her hatchlings. The back side of the coin has the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” on the top, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” on the left side, “IN GOD WE TRUST” on the right. The reverse side also contains the weight of the coin and its face value. The reverse side of the coin is designed by sculptor Miley Busiek.

The reverse side of the American Gold Eagle is scheduled to be redesigned in 2021. The new design will include anti-counterfeiting security measures.
