American Gold Eagles
One Ounce American Gold Eagles
The American Gold Eagle coin features a bold lady liberty on the obverse. Those familiar with the U.S. Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle gold coins (1907-1933) will recognize lady liberty holding a torch aloft in her right hand and an olive branch in her left as substantially the same as appears on that coin. Also on the obverse are the date and the words “Liberty”.
On the back of American Gold Eagle coins is a depiction of a bald eagle flying towards its nest where a baby eagle awaits with the words “United States of America” “e pluribus unum” and “In God We Trust”. On the one ounce gold eagle the words “1 Oz. Fine Gold” and “50 Dollars” also appear. American gold eagle coins are minted at the United States Philadelphia and West Point mints. The mint mark for West Point (W) appears on the obverse underneath the date.
The American Gold Eagle features a recycled design of Augustus Saint-Gaudens that was first used on the Saint-Gaudens twenty dollar gold piece (1907-1933). His initials can be found on the hem of lady liberty’s gown. The reverse was designed by Miley Busiek whose initials can be found on the reverse.
American Gold Eagles are 22K gold and are composed of .9167 gold, .0533 copper and .03 silver. The one ounce American Gold Eagle coin contains one ounce of pure gold but because it is 91.67% gold it weighs slightly more than one ounce (1.0909 oz.)
One Tenth Ounce American Gold Eagle Coins
One tenth ounce gold eagle coins are identical to the one ounce version other than size and weight. Fractional American Gold Eagles allow customers to buy gold without having to make a substantial one time up front purchase of a one ounce American Gold Eagle. Buying fractional gold coins allows customers to dollar cost average their purchases of one ounces or more. For example, a customer may make ten purchases of 1/10 ounce gold coins over a period of time instead of buying a one ounce coin on a particular date.
Some investors prefer to buy 1/10 ounce American Gold Eagles as the high price of gold make one ounce gold coins impracticable for barter. Fractional American Gold Eagles, however, make barter possible. While a one ounce American Gold Eagle may be worth too much to exchange for groceries or smaller items, a 1/10 ounce American Gold Eagles could suffice.
Canadian Gold Maple Leafs
The Canadian Gold Maple Leaf coin was first minted in 1979 as designed by Susana Blunt.
The Canadian Gold Maple leaf coins feature a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. Also on the obverse are the date and the words “Elizabeth II” and “Fifty Dollar” (on the one ounce coin). On the back, there is one large depiction of a maple leaf and a smaller one to the right of the stem of the larger one. The words “Canada” “Fine Gold” and “1 OZ OR Pure” appear on the reverse as does “9999” indicating the purity of the gold in the coin – 99.99% gold or 24K.
South African Krugerrands
Prior to the introduction of the American Gold Eagle coin series in 1986, the South African Krugerrand was the world’s most popular gold coin. Indeed, in the early 1980’s the Krugerrand accounted for approximately 90% of the global gold coin market. The ownership of gold bullion by U.S. citizens was outlawed from 1933-1974. While Americans could once again own gold in 1975, there was no newly minted U.S. gold coins to buy, leaving the Krugerrand as the best-selling gold bullion coin in the United States from 1975 until 1986.
Today, the South African Gold Krugerrand remains a popular bullion option for gold investors.
The obverse of the Krugerrand, features a portrait of Paul Kruger, President of the South African Republic from 1883 to 1900. The reverse showcases Coert Steynberg’s design of a prancing springbok, a South African antelope and national animal of South Africa.
Like the American Gold Eagle, the Kruggerand is 91.67% gold or 22K and contains one ounce of pure gold.
