Gold American Eagle Coins

American Eagle coin of 2024

The gold American Eagle coin is one of the most famous coins of the US Mint. It is the country's official gold coin and is struck every year in 91.67% pure gold (22 carats). The Golden Eagle is a very well-known gold investment coin and because the coin consists for a small part of copper, this coin has a red colored appearance, where the coins minted in 24 carat gold look clearly different. However, the Golden Eagle weighs slightly more and contains exactly the same amount of gold on balance, namely 1 troy ounce of pure gold. Processing a small amount of copper in the coins makes the coin stronger. Pure gold is very vulnerable.

Frequently asked questions about gold American Eagle coins

What is the purity of the gold in an American Eagle gold coin?

Gold American Eagle coins are minted in 22-karat gold, or 91.67% pure gold. Gold American Eagle coins are finished with copper. This creates the characteristic red hue of the coin.


The gross weight of gold American Eagle coins is somewhat higher than gold investment coins made of 24-carat gold (99.99% pure gold). For example, the 1 troy ounce variant weighs 33.930 grams (and not 31.103 grams). This ensures that the 1 troy ounce American Eagle contains the same amount of gold as 1 troy ounce gold investment coins minted in 99.99% pure gold. The net weight in gold is the same. This also applies to the fractional coins of the American Eagle series. 

Is there a difference between gold American Eagle coins from different years?

The American Eagle gold coins have been minted since 1986, and actually the design of the coin did not change much after its introduction, except that each year was logically designated a new year. In 2021, this changed and the Eagle was redesigned. The original design featured several eagles. The redesign depicted the head of an eagle and gave the coin a more modern look. 

Is VAT required to be paid when purchasing American Eagle coins?

No. Gold American Eagle coins fall under investment gold. This means that no VAT needs to be paid when purchasing these gold coins. You do pay VAT on the shipping or pickup costs of your order when completing an order. 

What is the difference between the American Eagle and Gold Eagle?

There are no two different gold coins called the American Eagle and the Gold Eagle. The American Eagle is the official gold coin of the United States. This coin was first minted in 1986 and comes in four different sizes: 1 ounce, 1/2 ounce, 1/4 ounce and 1/10 ounce. The term Gold Eagle is used informally to refer to the American Eagle gold coin, but it is not the official name. For example, the silver American Eagle coin is often also called the Silver Eagle.
