The 2017 1 Ounce American Gold Eagle is the newest issue in the iconic American Gold Eagle series. First manufactured in 1986 by the United States Mint, Gold Eagles are produced in four different sizes, but the 1 ounce Gold Eagle, is by far the most common. The purity, gold content, and weight of the 1 oz Gold Eagle are fully guaranteed by the United States Mint. Being an official US gold bullion coin, the 2016 Gold Eagle is legal tender within the United States and has a face value of 50 dollars.
Details of the 2017 1 Ounce American Gold Eagle
All American Gold Eagles are produced from a 22 karat gold and copper alloy occasionally known as Crown Gold. This is done to increase the durability and hardness of each coin, and also gives the American Gold Eagle its notable orange-colored hue. To compensate, the overall weight of each coin is increased, so each one Ounce Gold Eagle contains exactly 1 troy ounce of gold.
The design of the American Gold Eagle has not changed since the inception of the coin in 1986. The obverse features the mint year, as well as Saint-Gaudens' beautiful design of Walking Lady Liberty, used earlier on US circulation gold coinage. The reverse depicts a large eagle holding an olive branch, along with the gold fineness and the weight of the coin.
