Gold Eagle Bullion Types and Sizes

One of the American Gold Eagle’s advantages is its availability in various types and sizes to suit different investment strategies. A&D Coin buys and sells them all.

Here are the main options:

Standard 1 oz Gold Eagle

The 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin is the standard unit investors turn to for building their precious metals portfolio. With a full troy ounce of pure gold, it carries intrinsic value to balance financial risk. And because it is the most popular gold bullion, the large 1 ounce American Gold Eagle makes it easier to sell when the time is right.

Fractional Gold Eagles

For investors with smaller budgets, the U.S. Mint produces fractional Gold Eagle coins in 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz sizes. However, they may have less gold in them, but fractional gold coins tend to cost more per ounce than a full 1 ounce gold coin.

Proof American Gold Eagle

Proof coins are specially produced using polished dies for stunning detail and brilliant mirror-like finishes. All American Gold Eagle proofs come enclosed in protective casing with the coin’s specifications and a certificate of authenticity. Their scarcity and pristine quality make these gold coins a prizes for all collectors.

Reverse Proof Gold Eagles

Reverse proofs showcase a unique clockwise mirrored finish contrasting the frosted design elements against deeply mirrored fields. These special edition coins are struck multiple times using precision manufacturing. Reverse proofs are only released periodically in limited quantities as parts of special anniversary sets, driving strong demand from collectors.

Burnished Gold Eagles

Burnished Gold Eagles are a type of Gold Eagle coin that have a special finish called “burnished.” This process involves using a special burnishing wheel to give the coin a smooth and polished appearance. Burnished Eagles are minted at the West Point Mint and have a limited production compared to the regular bullion versions of the coin.

The obverse features the iconic “Walking Liberty” design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, which resembles the gold Double Eagle coin featuring Lady Liberty walking with a torch and an olive branch. The reverse design showcases a family of eagles, with a male eagle flying above a nest containing a female eagle and hatchlings.

Gold Eagle Anniversary Sets

The U.S. Mint issues exclusive anniversary coin sets to mark milestone years since the Eagle’s introduction. These contain specially finished proof and reverse proof coins and are strictly limited in quantities under 20,000 units. Anniversary sets with original government packaging and certificates are valuable collector’s items.

Key Date Gold Eagles

Certain Gold Eagle dates have extra significance due to unique editions, special privy marks, or very limited mintages. These scarcer key date Gold Eagles are distinguished from common issues and carry strong collector premiums. Notable key dates include the 1995 Proof, 2011-W, 1986, 2006-W 20th Anniversary, and 2021-W 35th Anniversary.

American Gold Eagle Sets

Complete sets of the gold bullion coin contain one example of the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz Gold Eagle coins all from the same year. Most have been broken up over time.
