U.S. Gold Coins are widely collected as well. While the American Gold Eagle began primarily as a bullion coin, there are a number of Gold Eagles issued with the numismatic collector in mind. The American Gold Buffalo hasn't been around for as long as the Gold Eagle, but has proven quite popular. Gold Buffalos are made of even finer gold than the American Gold Eagle, being struck from .9999 fine gold. American Platinum Eagles aren't seen as often as their gold and silver counterparts and have plenty of collector appeal due to their traditionally low mintage figures. U.S. Platinum Eagles are also an ideal way to own physical platinum.
A variety of other U.S. gold coins are produced by the Mint, such as the First Spouse Gold Series and a number of Gold Modern Commemoratives. The First Spouse series was made with collectors in mind and the low mintage figures give them even more appeal.
First struck in 1986, the American Gold Eagle quickly became one of the most desired gold coins in the world, a status it maintains to this day. Struck in standard gold weights and sizes with legal tender status, American Gold Eagles are accumulated as a store of value and a convenient means of owning gold in addition to their numismatic value.
The American Gold Buffalo is the first U.S. gold coin to be struck in .9999 (24 karat) fine gold. It was first struck in 2006, and continues to be minted to this day. As a virtual reproduction of James Earle Fraser's classic 1913 Buffalo nickel, they are coveted by gold owners and stackers alike.
The First Spouse Gold Series features the First Lady of each president, and were struck and released in conjunction with the Presidential Gold Dollar series starting in 2007. Each contains 1/2 Oz. of .9999 gold and has a face value of $10.
Silver coins hold tremendous significance among collectors, and are often a component of a diversified portfolio. United States Mint Silver coins are coveted for their beauty, design, and historical value. Many countries have silver coins, but coins issued and minted by the United States are among the most popular with collectors. In addition to minting currency for circulation for everyday transactions, the U.S. Mint has created many series of beautiful numismatic silver coins. Popular series include American Silver Eagles which are considered by many collectors to be among the most beautiful of minted silver coins. There are also America the Beautiful, Modern Silver Commemoratives that honor historic U.S. anniversaries, and the Silver Peace Dollars which were minted to honor the end of World War I.
Today's American silver coins are currently struck at four U.S. Branch mints, each identified by their individual mintmarks: Philadelphia (P), Denver (D), San Francisco (S), and West Point (W). Older coins may also feature "CC" or "O" mintmarks - identifying them as products from the Carson City and New Orleans mints, respectively - both of which ceased production around the turn of the 20th Century.
The American Silver Eagle, first minted in 1986, is considered by some to be the most beautiful U.S. silver coin ever minted. Silver Eagles are available primarily in two formats, Bullion Silver Eagles which are more readily available, and Proof Silver Eagles which are most desired by collectors. Proof Silver Eagles have been given more shine and have been struck twice to make the beautiful design of the coin that much more detailed. Other versions like the Burnished, Reverse Proof, and Enhanced Reverse Proof finishes are also issued by the Mint!
The next generation of the incredibly popular U.S. State Quarters series, America The Beautiful Quarters feature detailed designs that showcase America’s most cherished natural treasures. In recent years, the America The Beautiful Series Of 5 Oz. Silver Coins has really taken off. These are the only large precious metal coins made by the U.S. Mint at this time, and the size of them allows you to appreciate the incredible designs that much more. The series which began in 2010 recently concluded in 2021 with the 56th and final design.
The U.S. has a rich history of producing U.S. Silver Coins. Consider adding coins such as 90% silver Mercury and Roosevelt dimes, Kennedy Half-Dollars and/or vintage U.S. Mint Sets to your assortment.
Minted since, 1997 American Platinum Eagles are currently produced only in 1 oz coins, which are available as bullion strikes whose price is tied to the price of platinum, and as proof coins that are sold at a premium.
American Modern Commemoratives come in a variety of sizes, metals, and designs. Commemoratives are usually silver or gold, but other metals are sometimes used. Gold commemoratives are often available in several weights when produced.
