What is the Golden Eagle Coin?
United States Mint has been producing American Eagle Gold Proof Coins since 1986. They are available in four different sizes: one ounce, half an ounce, quarter of an ounce, and one-tenth of an ounce. All the coins contain 91.67 percent (22-karat) gold, and the weight and diameter vary according to the denomination of the particular coin. The coins are minted at the U.S. Mint in West Point and they have the “W” mint mark.
The obverse of the coin has the Liberty figure that has been used on the gold coins since 1986. The design is based on Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ 1907 $20 gold coin, the “Double Eagle.” In 2021, the Mint marked the 35th anniversary of the American Eagle Coin Program with a refreshed design that is closer to Saint-Gaudens’ original vision. Modifications have been made to the Capitol Building, stars, torch, sun rays, and other elements of the design.
