History of American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins

The American gold eagle bullion coins were authorized for production by the United States Congress through the gold bullion coin act (the coinage act) of 1985. These American gold eagle bullion coins are official gold bullion coins of the United States. And these products contained four different weights, i.e., 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz & 1/10 oz, respectively. And the United States Congress established the face value of the coins as a standard procedure with legal tender manufactured by United States Mint.

First produced in 1986, the American eagle gold bullion coins were available from 1986 starting with the 1 oz gold American eagles. 

For the 20th anniversary of the American eagle coin series, the US Mint introduced a new burnished version of the coin for the collectors, which further gained popularity and interest for the brilliant coins. 

Design of American Eagle Gold Coins

The US Mint chose a historical design for the American gold eagle coin. Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the coin designer, was handpicked by former President Roosevelt in 1905 to help US gold coinage build up an astonishing new design. 

Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty design is considered his crowning achievement, depicting a full-length figure of Liberty with her hair and robe gracefully flowing in the wind as she confidently strides forward from the nation’s capital. She holds a torch for light and an olive branch for peace, representing her guidance for the nation’s peaceful yet uncertain future.

The obverse contains the standing liberty holding the capitol dome in the background, including the mint mark, and the reverse has the eagle design with the weight and brand name of the coin. At the same time, the American gold eagle coins design is still considered one of the most outstanding American coins in history. “The gold eagle coins apprehend symbols of patriotism minted in gold”.

Basically, gold coins are made of high purity gold alloy with the combination of gold, copper, silver, and other metals. In contrast, the coins are created through a process known as “coin striking,” where the metal is physically pressed into a die to form the coin’s design. The composition of 91.67% gold, 3% silver, and 5.33% of copper fine gold makes the gold American eagle coins durable, 22 karat gold in purify.

Furthermore, American Gold Eagle coins are enclosed in a protective clear, hard plastic “slab” to safeguard them from scratches, scuffs, or other forms of damage. The American eagle gold coins come in one, half, quarter, and tenth-ounce sizes and are identical in design to each other except for the markings on the reverse side that indicates the weight and face value of the coins. Prints on smaller coins are pure gold and less distinct. 

The US Congress officially recognizes American Gold Eagles, and the US Mint guarantees their weight and composition, making them highly sought after by collectors. On the reverse side of each coin are the phrases “In God We Trust” and “E Pluribus Unum,” as well as an image of an American eagle.

These terms and conditions apply to all orders, all purchases, and all sales made through our website, telephone, or other channels.

In the event you do not fully understand the terms of this agreement, BULLIONTRADING LLC strongly encourages you to consult with your own experts. BULLION TRADING enters into transactions with customers on the reliance and belief that clients are aware of, understand, and agree to these terms.

These terms and conditions are effective as of March 11, 2022, and are binding to all new and existing customers and users.

PURCHASES, SALES, AND ORDERS

The prices for gold, silver, platinum and palladium coins and bars keep on fluctuating because of the risk factors that cause price volatility. The risk factors include political development, war, pandemics, demand, and supply. It is important to keep this in mind when transacting with BULLIONTRADING LLC.

The Ordering Process

BULLIONTRADING LLC. Does Not speculate on the prices of precious metals. This means that we don’t make profits by buying gold when the prices are low and selling when prices go up. BULLIONTRADING LLC generates revenue through premium spreads. This is the difference between what Bullion Trading LLC pays & sells these items for.

Orders and inquiries can be made through our website, phone, or other suitable channels. Contact Us for information.

Inquiries

Inquiries are made by customers who are not ready to transact immediately. Customers can contact us or go online at Bulliontradingllc.com to get current market prices. The price quote and quantity available are subject to change. They can also contact us for guidance on buying and selling bullion coins and bars. You should note that the Price Quotations you receive when inquiring are Estimates because the prices of bullion coins and bars fluctuate daily, and the number of our stock changes all the time.

For example, The U.S Mint sets premium and minimum prices for American Eagles. Prices for American Eagles are determined by the current price of gold, silver, platinum, or palladium. The mint also charges a modest premium to cater to the cost of distribution and marketing. Consequently, the price of bullion coins and bars changes daily as the markets for gold, silver, platinum, and palladium fluctuates. Refer to the United States Mint’s Charges for Authorized Dealers.

ORDERS

Orders are made when customers are ready to transact immediately. The prices you get when ordering bullion coins and bars from us are an accurate reflection of the current market prices. Note that once you place an order, the prices are locked and are no longer subject to market conditions.

An order is placed when you finalized negotiations with our agents and an invoice is generated, not when the payment is made. Ordering and then bailing out or canceling after an invoice is generated makes BULLIONTRADING LLC incur losses. We incur losses because when you place an order, we consider the bullion coin or bar sold and will have hedged ourselves accordingly.

Disclaimer: To protect our company from losses, BULLIONTRADING LLC has implemented a Market Loss Policy.

Market Loss Policy Explained

An order starts when you finalize the deal with our agents, not when the payment is made. We generate an invoice immediately the deal is sealed either through our website or phone. We also count the bullion coin or bar as sold and will have hedged ourselves accordingly.

Customers who place orders, have invoices generated, and then cancel thereafter make us incur losses. To protect ourselves we have implemented a market loss policy. This means that you will incur penalties for ordering, having an invoice generated, and then bailing out. Once an order is placed, prices are locked and not subject to market conditions.

The moment you place an order an invoice is generated. If you cancel, and then gold prices decline you make us incur a loss. It is your responsibility to offset this loss if your order is canceled and your funds are returned. If this happens you will pay for the loss caused by a decline in the price of gold after a sale is made plus a cancellation fee of $35.00. This is our market loss policy.

To remain transparent and protect ourselves from risk we might require credit card information from every customer even if payment will be received through a different channel. We also will ask for immediate confirmation of the amount locked in. This gives us an avenue to compensate ourselves for losses in the event a customer places an order and then fails to pay.

However, if the price of bullion coins and bars stays the same, we usually don’t enforce our market loss policy because we don’t incur losses. If the price goes down we charge a market loss fee which is equal to the amount BULLIONTRADING LLC would have lost because of the unpaid order.

PAYMENTS
