The 2012 American Gold Eagle contains one Troy ounce of 22 karat gold, and it has the distinction of being the only gold bullion coin whose content is guaranteed by the United States government. Since its original introduction in 1986, the American Gold Eagle has become the most widely traded gold bullion coin in the world. This continues gold’s five thousand year history of value and desirability. As a further confirmation of the American government’s belief in the soundness of the Gold Eagle as an investment in the future, they were the only gold items of any kind allowed to fund Individual Retirement Accounts (i.e., IRAs) prior to 1997. The American Gold Eagle is the only bullion coin in the world whose purity is guaranteed by the government of the United States. The American Gold Eagle series began with the Gold Bullion Act of 1985 which led directly to the production of the first American Gold Eagles in 1986. As stipulated by law, American Gold Eagles are composed of gold mined solely in the United States with a purity of 91.67% or 22k, the three hundred and fifty year standard for gold bullion coins.

Security, history, beauty: the 2012 American Gold Eagle. All four denominations of the 2012 American Gold Eagle share the same beautiful design, only differing in their stated weights and face values. The obverse, or front of the coin, takes its design directly from the most beautiful coin in US history: the 1907 Double Eagle. Lady Liberty was designed by the world-renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens and chosen by Theodore Roosevelt to symbolize the spirit of liberty and the emerging influence of America in the world. Saint-Gaudens depicts Lady Liberty striding toward the viewer from out of a rising sun, a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The word “Liberty” is appropriately emblazoned above her head. The reverse features a new design created by the sculptor Miley Busiek in 1986 expressly for the American Gold Eagle. A proud eagle with an olive branch in its talons flies towards the nest of his mate and their young hatchlings. “E Pluribus Unum” and “In God We Trust” is inscribed across the bottom of the coin. As fine pieces of numismatic art, these coins have fully capture the heart and soul of America’s sense of freedom and liberty. This may explain why the Gold Eagle is prized by collectors around the world for its artistic value and is prized by bullion investors for the fine quality of its gold content. We know our discerning customers will appreciate the value of the new 2012 American Gold Eagles as much as its predecessors.
