BU American Gold Eagles

Introduced in 1986, BU American Gold Eagles are available in 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz options. Each coin features consistent design elements and metal content, with face values corresponding to the weight of gold in the coin:

  • 1 oz – $50 (USD)
  • 1/2 oz – $25 (USD)
  • 1/4 oz – $10 (USD)
  • 1/10 oz – $5 (USD)

These coins are struck annually by the US Mint to meet investor demand, offered in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with individual coins packaged in protective plastic flips. Larger quantities are available in tubes or Monster Boxes, ensuring flexibility in purchasing.

BU American Gold Buffalo

Introduced in 2006, the American Gold Buffalo is the first-ever 24-karat gold coin issued by the United States. Modeled after James Earle Fraser’s iconic Buffalo Nickel design, these coins offer .9999 fine gold content and are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, encapsulated for preservation, and presented in mint tubes or flips. They remain a testament to American heritage and are struck annually to meet collector and investor demand.

Proof American Gold Eagles

The Proof American Gold Eagles, introduced sequentially after the BU series, offer collectors a limited-mintage collectible version of these coins. Initially released with the 1 oz coin in 1986, subsequent years saw additions of the 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz options. Featuring mint marks and packaged individually in capsules within US Mint display boxes, these coins come with Certificates of Authenticity and represent a premium collectible choice.

Burnished American Gold Eagles

Inaugurated on the 20th anniversary of the American Eagle Series, Burnished American Gold Eagles provide a second collectible option alongside the BU and Proof series. From 2006 to 2008, these coins were minted in 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz weights, each bearing a distinctive “W” mint mark from the West Point Mint. They are encapsulated, accompanied by Certificates of Authenticity, and presented in display boxes, catering to collectors interested in low-mintage coins.

Certified American Gold Eagles

Each year, Certified American Gold Eagles are available with grades from grading authorities such as the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) or the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). These coins are evaluated for their strike quality, mint luster, and surface condition, ensuring collectors can acquire coins in Mint State PF/PR 69 or PF/PR 70 grades, as well as those designated as Early Release/First Strike or UCAM/DCAM.

Historical Significance and Design

The American Gold Eagle series, launched in 1986, marked a significant return to gold coin issuance in the United States after a hiatus of over five decades. Featuring iconic designs like Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty on the obverse and Miley Busiek’s family of American bald eagles on the reverse, these coins pay homage to America’s rich numismatic history while embodying modern minting standards and purity.

Proof American Gold Buffalo Offered alongside the BU series, the Proof American Gold Buffalo provides collectors with a premium version of this historic design. Packaged individually in presentation cases with Certificates of Authenticity, these coins feature the same design elements as the BU version and are minted with meticulous attention to detail and quality.

Commemorative American Gold Coins In addition to the American Gold Buffalo, the US Mint issues limited-mintage Commemorative American Gold Coins. These coins celebrate significant moments in American history and are crafted with .9999 fine gold, ensuring each piece is a cherished addition to any collection.
