Authorized by the Bullion Coin Act of 1985, American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins quickly became one of the world’s leading gold bullion investment coins. Produced from gold mined in the United States, American Eagles are imprinted with their gold content and legal tender “face” value. An American Eagle’s value is based on the market price of its metal content, plus a small premium to cover coinage and distribution.
American Eagles use the durable 22 karat standard established for gold circulating coinage over 350 years ago. They contain their stated amount of pure gold, plus small amounts of alloy. This creates harder coins that resist scratching and marring, which can diminish resale value.
What truly sets American Eagles apart is that they are the only bullion coins whose weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government. Investors can buy them with confidence, knowing the coins contain their stated amount of gold. In addition, long-term savers can include American Eagles in their Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).
The American Eagle Coins are available in four weights each year in the BU range, with the 1/10 oz coin the smallest of those coins. Not only is the 1/10 oz coin the smallest in the series, but it is also often the most popular in terms of demand. As with all of the American Eagles, the 1/10 oz Eagle will be getting a new reverse design later in 2021 to mark the 35th anniversary of the series.
- Arrives inside of a protective plastic flip or an acrylic tube of 50 coins!
- 35th anniversary in the American Eagle Series!
- Bears a face value of $5 (USD) backed by the federal government.
- The obverse features Lady Liberty.
- On the reverse is a family of American bald eagles.
Each 2021 1/10 oz American Eagle Coin in this product listing is available to purchase individually or in an acrylic tube. The individual coins will ship inside of protective plastic flips, while the acrylic tube holds a total of 50 coins. All of the coins listed here come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition from the United States Mint.
The US Mint has announced an upcoming change to the reverse design of the American Eagle, as well as the American First Eagle. This represents the first-ever change to the designs of these major bullion coins. By mid-2021, the US Mint will have the new designs ready for production, but the 2021 release year will start with versions of both coins issued using the long-running design combinations.
Easy to Buy and Sell
An important measure of any investment is its liquidity: How easy is it to resell? United States Government backing means that like the dollar, American Eagle Bullion Coins are accepted in major investment markets worldwide. They are also the most widely traded bullion coins in America, affording investors narrow spreads between buy and sell prices.
It’s easy to track the value of American Eagle Bullion Coins. Most major newspapers report the daily price of gold. An American Eagle’s value is based on the market price of its metal content, plus a small premium to cover coinage and distribution costs.
