Product Description

American Gold Eagle 1 oz

The American Gold Eagle 1 oz is the most popular bullion coin choice in the United States. In 1986, the United States Mint introduced the American Gold Eagle series, minted in four sizes (1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz and 1/10 oz). From 1986 through 1991 the US Mint dated the coins using Roman Numerals. From 1992 through the present traditional American Gold Eagle 1 ozArabic Numerals are featured.  

On the front of the coin is a depiction of Liberty taken from the famous $20 gold piece (1907-1933) designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

The back features a family of eagles and includes United States of America, E Pluribus Unum (from many, one). It also features In God We Trust, weight (1 oz fine gold) and legal tender value ($50). 

The US Mint produces quantities of the American Gold Eagle 1 oz in sparkling mint condition to ensure it will remain a leader in the gold bullion market. The legal tender value is symbolic as the American Gold Eagle 1 oz fluctuates directly with the price of gold.

Between 1986 and 2012 the US Mint produced 15,488,576 Gold Eagles in the one ounce size. US Mint production numbers for 2013: Jan (124,500) Feb (68,000) March (54,000) April (187,500) May (61,500) June (49,000) July (43,000) Aug (9,000) Sept (8,500) October (41,000). Recently posted for November (44,000) and December (53,500) are typical and the total (American Gold Eagle 1 oz) for 2013 is 743,500.

There are reasons for this popularity: (1) The American Gold Eagle 1 oz appeals to a worldwide audience and outsells other bullion gold coins within the United States because of its low premium. (2) The American Gold Eagle 1 oz is a popular Individual Retirement Account choice. (3) The American Gold Eagle 1 oz is easy to buy and sell because dealers worldwide post daily buy and sell prices. (4) The American Gold Eagle 1 oz contains exactly one ounce of the gold and is alloyed with a small amount of copper for durability. (5) The US Mint places 20 one ounce coins in a plastic tube which snaps closed and is virtually indestructible. This allows for easy movement and storage.

The US Mint also produces a composite red box which contains 500 American Gold Eagle 1 oz coins (25 tubes of 20 coins). These boxes are built to last, stack easily and are an industry standard for large transactions.

Unlike the Krugerrand (1 oz) or the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf (1 oz) the US Gold Eagle 1 oz has no dealer reporting requirement (Federal Form 1099B) when you buy or sell.

    I’ve used this store off and on for over 10 years, both buying and selling in person. Always a pleasant professional exchange. I won’t go anywhere else.

    I’ve traded with CNI since 1985 and Kenny Edwards was on the radio with Buzz Schwartz. They are my first choice. :You can rely on them for advice and honest
    dealings. I love their new website. I now live in Louisiana and still buy from them.
    Keep up the same integrity you have always displayed.

    This is my second purchase with CNI and I am totally happy with the communication during the transaction and very happy with the prompt delivery. I’ll keep buying from

    Even though the premium of Eagles is higher than other coins, I’ll pay it for the peace of mind in these uncertain times, that when I sell or trade, there’s more “brand recognition” and comfort with it than a “foreign” coin. Same with doing business with CNI, maybe you’ll find “cheaper” prices on Ebay, but you can’t trust the quality or the dealer. With CNI, you can. They are honest and their products are genuine. I won’t go anywhere else.
