Gold American Eagles
Historically, gold has been sought for the stability, liquidity and diversity it can provide to an investment portfolio. Monex is proud to offer a gold bullion coin that provides all of this, as well as the backing and security of the American government...the gold American Eagle.
The first gold coins produced in America, the original $10 gold "Eagle" coins, were originally minted by the United States Mint starting in 1795. More than two hundred years later, U.S. gold coins—perhaps some of the greatest symbols of American liberty and freedom -- are still produced with levels of quality and beauty that one would expect of the United States Mint.
First released by the United States mint in 1986, the gold American Eagle is the first modern bullion coin to be authorized by the United States congress...and is backed by the US Mint for its weight, content and purity.
Each gold American Eagle coin features striking imagery, symbolizing the American spirit and character. The obverse of the coin, originally designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the country's $20 gold piece minted from 1907 to 1933, carries the image of a full length figure of Lady Liberty holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. In the background can be seen the images of the sun rising and the United States Capitol dome. The obverse side of the coin also bears the inscription "Liberty" and contains both the date of issue and the individual mint mark of origin. The reverse side of the coin bears the image of a male bald eagle carrying an olive branch, flying towards his mate in a nest with their hatchlings.
American Eagle gold coins are available from Monex in three different sizes and denominations. The one-ounce gold American Eagle has a diameter of 32.7mm, a thickness of 2.87mm, a total weight of 1.0909 troy ounces (or 33.931 grams), contains one troy ounce of pure gold, and has a face value of $50. One-ounce gold American Eagles are sold in units of 10 one-ounce coins. The coins can be purchased outright for personal delivery or can be financed through the exclusive Monex ATLAS account. Additionally, these coins are suitable for an IRA investment.
Each of the fractional gold American Eagle coins are sold in units of 20 coins each for personal delivery only. The quarter-ounce gold coin has a diameter of 22mm, a thickness of 1.78mm, a total weight of .2727 troy ounces (or 8.483 grams), contains a quarter-ounce of pure gold, and has a face value of $10. The tenth-ounce gold coin has a diameter of 16.5mm, a thickness of 1.26mm, a total weight of 0.1091 troy ounces (3.393 grams), contains a tenth-ounce of pure gold and has a face value of $5.
Like the South African Krugerrand, all American Eagle gold bullion coins are 22 karat (or .9167 fine) gold, containing an alloy of silver and copper to help increase the stability and scratch-resistance of the coins. Each coin is guaranteed to contain an exact quantity of gold, mined exclusively in the United States, and to meet the rigid quality standards of the U.S. Mint.
American Eagle gold coins provide investors with the means to diversify, balance and stabilize a well-rounded investment portfolio, all with the safety and backing of the United States government and the U.S. Dollar.
