U.S. Mint Bullion Products
The US Mint offers a wide variety of quality American gold, silver and platinum bullion products formally known as the American Eagle Series. American Eagle bullion coins are among the world’s most popular bullion coins. Produced by the US Mint, the American Eagle’s history can be traced as far back as 1848. It wasn’t until 1986 that the American Eagle coins were formally launched as a bullion program backed by the United States government.
At the onset of 2011, the US Mint released 2011 American Eagle coins. Made of .999 pure silver and containing one ounce of pure gold, the American Eagle coins are the only coins whose purity, content, and weight are guaranteed by the United States. They are exquisitely designed and are among the most beautiful and highly coveted bullion coins in the world.
On the obverse of the American Gold Eagles is the iconic image of Liberty in full profile with a torch of freedom in the left hand and olive branch in the other, a design created by sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The reverse of the American Gold Eagle was designed by Miley Busiek, depicting an image of an eagle settling into its nest with a second and third eagle securely nestled together. Gold Eagles are available in 1 ozt, 1/2 ozt, 1/4 ozt, and 1/10 ozt gold coins, making them extremely versatile as an investment tool.
The American Silver Eagles bears Lady Liberty walking on the obverse, carrying an olive branch in her left arm symbolizing peace. The Walking Liberty, which depicts Liberty wrapped in an American flag, was designed by Adolph A. Weinman and was the image used on the walking liberty half dollar minted for 1916-1947. The reverse of Americas silver bullion coin portrays the Heraldic Eagle and Shield which was a John Mercanti design.
The American Gold and Silver Eagle bullion coins are beautifully struck, and are both a collectors’ item and an investor’s must-have coin. Provident Metals proudly offers these coins and guarantees their authenticity.
