Issued since 1986, American Gold Eagles are by far the most popular gold bullion coin sold in the U.S. and are also a global leader in the gold market.
The 1 oz., $50-denomination American Gold Eagle is the most widely traded and collected size of American Gold Eagles in part because they contain 1 troy ounce of gold, making it easy for the purchaser to determine the value of their coin based on gold spot prices. This is true even though the coins contain copper and other alloys to make them more durable since they weigh more than one ounce with the other materials but have an actual gold weight of 1 oz.
These coins are minted in a variety of versions besides the standard bullion coin, including proof, burnished uncirculated, and reverse proof coins. Each of these coins is widely collected in ungraded and professionally-graded form, and many people seek to build full sets of these coins.
