Gold American Eagle Coin

Since 1986, America has been producing the gold American Eagle coin. The gold American Eagle coin has four different denominations coming in the 1/10 gold American Eagle coin, the 1/4 gold American Eagle coin, the 1/2 gold American Eagle coin and the 1 troy ounce gold American Eagle coin. The United States government for many years stayed away from producing gold coins as our monetary system was removed from the gold standard. But, as many other countries began doing after the resounding success of the South African Kruggerand gold coin as a collectible and investment coin, the American government moved back into producing gold coins in 1983 with it’s first release of the Los Angeles Olympics commemorative gold coins.

Prior to that, the last dated and official legal tender American gold coin came 50 years earlier in 1933. The gold American Eagle coin was met critcal acclaim from both numismatists and investors from around the world. The gold American Eagle coin has a legal tender value and can be used in the United States to purchase goods and services, although it’s highly suggested that you don’t do this as the gold content in each coin is far more valuable than the denomination of the coin itself. The 1/10 gold American Eagle coin has a denomination of five dollars, the 1/4 gold American Eagle coin has a denomination of ten dollars, the 1/2 gold American Eagle coin has a denomination of 25 dollars and the 1 troy ounce gold American Eagle coin has a denomination of 50 dollars.

Although the gold American Eagle coin is 1 troy ounce of gold, the coin itself weighs more than 1 troy ounce. The gold American Eagle coin weighs 33.933 grams and it’s percentage of gold is 91.67 percent, or 22 karat. The rest of the coin is comprised of copper and silver. The reason for adding the copper and silver is to add strength to the coin while helping to keep its brilliant yellow hue. Along with a large grouping of modern commemorative coins, the gold American Eagle coin has helped to bring rekindle America’s romance with the gold coins.

We were really pleased with the help that AJ gave us concering our gold coins and watches. I don’t think we could have received a better deal anywhere. All of the personnel at Nevada Coin & Jewelry were very professional. We will recommend them to our friends.

My wife cashed in some coins and we got top dollar. We have sold to others before but no more, we found a real professional store in Nevada Coin & Jewelry. “Thank You”


My friend and I came here to sell some coins and jewelry. We first saw Scott about some coins. He was very friendly and knew his stuff. Afterwards, he brought us over to Sheila who looked at our jewelry. She was also very nice and professional. We will definitely come back here again. GREAT PLACE!!!!

Really cool cats over at Nevada Coin and Jewelry. You would’ve thought that I was “Madonna” the way those guys treated me. I was so mesmerized by all of the antiques, they have in there, I believe I was there for two hours, just looking, unbelieveable! When I went in I was so hot, they offered me a cold bottle of water, how cool is that? It felt like home to me. I wanted to get a price for some old jewelry that was passed down by grandma, I was well satisfied. When I left the shop, I was singing “Money, Money, Money.


I recently got divorced so I wanted to get rid of some of the jewelry my ex-husband got me. I found Nevada Coin and jewelry searching the web. When I called the guy that answered the phone was friendly and willing to quote me a price per gram. I went to their store on Flamingo, Avery whom I spoke to on the phone tested my items using some kind of x-ray machine. I could see that some of my jewelry was not the karat I thought (some lower some higher). He paid what he quoted on the phone no bait and switch. It took less than 15 minutes got my cash and got rid of some bad memories. I would recommend this company if you are looking to sell jewelry.

Grateful for the Nevada Coin and Jewelry shop, I just adore it. I took some collectable figurines in and they bought them. I came out smelling like a rose. You should’ve been there to see the big smile on my face. I ran all the way home to look for some more. Can’t wait to get back! I can sure use the money!


After visiting a couple of the “traveling gold & silver merchants” who came to Mesquite, I made a call to Nevada Coin & Jewelry in Las Vegas… David was very helpful and professional. Their prices were the best I had seen… I left very satisfied with my trip and the deals we made. I will definitely go there again.
