The American Gold Eagle is the official bullion coin of the United States. It was first released by the United States Mint in 1986, when President Roosevelt was in office. Each coin is guaranteed by the US government to contain the stated weight of actual gold in troy ounces, with the fineness being a minimum of .9167, alloyed with silver and copper to create a more wear-resistant coin. The obverse side features Lady Liberty, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left, surrounded by a circle of 50 stars that represent the 50 states. The reverse side depicts a male eagle bringing an olive branch to a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings. Elegantly designed and valued around the world, the American Gold Eagle 1oz coin is an essential investment for bullion coin collectors.
