About the American Gold Eagle Coin
The American Gold Eagle Coin was first issued in 1986 by the U.S. Mint. It has since risen to the rank of #1 for gold bullion investments as it is the only gold coin whose weight, content, and purity are guaranteed by the U.S. government. By law, American Gold Eagle Coins must be made with gold mined in the United States. Its recognition, popularity, and liquidity make it one of the most sought-after gold coins in the world.
