The leading product in the US gold bullion market is the American Eagle gold coin. Produced by the US Mint, these auspicious coins are made from 22 karat gold and offer high levels of quality manufacturing and financial security. Backed by the United States government and recognised as legal tender, the American Eagle coins fit well in any investment portfolio and is one of the few gold coins that can be added to a Gold IRA.
History of American Eagle Gold Coins
The first gold American Eagle coin was struck in 1795 to reflect the strength and stability of the United States. The modern coins which are used today as an investment tool were only introduced by the US Mint in 1986 after Congress decided the coins could be used as a store of wealth under the Bullion Act 1985.
What is most striking about the modern coins is they feature the iconic Liberty design created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens that originally featured on the $20 ‘double eagle’ coins minted in 1907. Another notable design that has featured on American Eagle gold coins was Adolph Weinman’s ‘Walking Liberty’ struck in 1916 for the half-dollar coin.
Why buy American Eagle gold coins
American Eagle gold coins are meticulously manufactured using advanced technologies and are made with .999 fineness. Because these gold coins are recognised as legal tender and backed by the US government, they are highly popular and represent a solid long-term investment. Gold coins are also durable products which are resistant to scratches and marring so do not diminish in value upon resale.
Precious metals have a strong reputation as an investment tool and are used to hedge against paper-based currencies which generally lose value during an economic crisis. Gold, on the other hand, performs strongly during times of financial strife, therefore representing a safe investment that gives investors purchasing power after retirement.
Design of American Eagle gold coins
The design of the American Eagle gold coins is rich in symbolism and is identified with the strength of the United States as a world superpower. The obverse of the coins are ornately decorated with the Statue of Liberty and the 50 stars that are synonymous with the country’s enduring flag.
The reverse side features Miley Busiek’s design of two eagles building a nest, reflecting the famed ‘American Dream’ which encourages American families to build their our nest – and as an investment tool, gold Eagle coins are a safe-haven investment that help to build a store of wealth for your retirement nest egg.
Whilst the male eagle holds an olive branch between its beak to advocate peace, the female sits in the nest protecting her fledgelings. Around the edges is the Latin inscription, E Pluribus Unum, the motto of Congress meaning “one out of many.”
It should be noted that the denomination of the coins do not reflect the current value in today’s market – American Eagle gold coins are much more valuable. Their true value is calculated in accordance with the gold spot price which represents “one troy ounce” and weighs exactly 31.1034768 grams.
American Gold Eagle Coins: IRA Investment
American Eagle gold coins are available for purchase in a variety of weights, namely, one ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce, and one-tenth. The US Mint produce the smaller weights in order to make the gold eagle bullion accessible to all investors.
As an investment tool for retirement plans, the American Eagle gold bullion and proof coins offer financial protection and security. Before 1997, investors in the US were not permitted to buy gold bullion coins in relation to an IRA. Today, investors are afforded the opportunity to safeguard your pension income by adding the prestigious gold American Eagles to a Gold IRA.
