Gold American Eagle 
Design and Specifications

Historically, investors acquire gold for the stability, liquidity and diversity it may provide to a portfolio. Monex proudly offers the American Eagle Gold Coin, the first modern-day gold bullion coin to be authorized by Congress and backed by the U.S. Mint’s weight, content and purity guarantee.

The obverse of the American Eagle gold coin features Lady Liberty holding an olive branch and a torch with a rising sun and the U.S. Capitol dome in the background; and is inscribed with the word “Liberty,” the issue date and mint mark. The coin’s reverse depicts a male bald eagle grasping an olive branch flying towards his mate embracing her hatchlings in a nest.

Gold American Eagle Coins: FAQ's
What is an American Gold Eagle Coin?

The United States Mint issues Gold American Eagles as legal tender gold bullion coins for investment purposes, under congressional authority. The family of Gold Eagles consists of four sizes and face values. Though they are technically money, their face value is insignificant compared to their intrinsic value, and they do not circulate as coinage. By far, one of the most popular and most liquid sizes of almost all coins is the one-ounce $50 face value American Gold Eagle.

What is the gold content of the American Eagle coin?

Although not considered pure gold, the Gold American Eagle maintains strong popularity with investors looking to add gold coins to their portfolio. The Gold Eagle consists of 91.67% gold, 5.33% copper and 3% silver resulting in an approximately 22 karat coin, as opposed to the 24 karats found in the pure gold American Buffalo coins. The $50 face value gold Eagle weighs 1.0909 troy ounces, or 33.93 grams, and is 32.7 mm in diameter and 2.87 mm thick. However, each coin contains precisely one troy ounce of pure gold. The $10 Gold Eagle weighs 0.2727 troy ounces and is precisely .25 troy ounces of pure gold, and the $5 Gold Eagle weighs 0.1091 troy ounces and is precisely .1 troy ounces of pure gold.

What is the cost of a one ounce Gold Eagle to purchase?

The purchase price of a one ounce Gold American Eagle is at the Monex Ask price. In addition, there are charges such as commission and shipping. There is no shipping charge if you select depository delivery. Today's ask price per coin for buying in units of ten is: $1848.4.
