Made In America! The premier gold coin of the United States Mint is the American Gold Eagle. These coins are more durable than many other modern gold bullion coins thanks to their 22-karat gold, which is also known as 91.7% pure gold or .917 fine gold. Each 2017 American Gold Eagle coin still contains a 1 troy ounce of pure gold by weight and is designated as U.S. legal tender.
There is perhaps no more revered American coin design than the Lady Liberty motif seen on the obverse (front) of the Gold Eagle. This classic image was created by artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. Miss Liberty boldly marches forward carrying a lit torch and olive branch. The reverse (back) uses Miley Busiek's design of a family of bald eagles.
The Gold Eagle is trusted and readily recognized all over the globe thanks to its track record of high quality, its gorgeous and symbolically rich design, as well as its 100% backing by the full faith and credit of the United States government.
Whether you're interested in buying and holding gold for long-term saving or would like a highly liquid investment that easily be traded for cash anywhere in the world, there is no better choice than the 2017 1 oz American Gold Eagle.
