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.

I am a brazilian and had the chance to deal with Nevada Coin. I was there to sell some gold coins and they paid me the best price I could fetch in Las Vegas. They are professional, courteous and trustworthy. Before visiting their premises I got a tentative appraisal by phone which I found reasonable. In the shop the attendant offered to approach the manager to get me a (gasp) BETTER price. Do yourself a favor and don’t bother talking to their rude and unprofessional competitors. They will treat you like a moron and quote prices accordingly. For Nevada Coin, five Stars all the way.


Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive. Building had great security to helped me feel safe in handling my items.

Great family run store. I’m well taken care of every time I show up at this location. Thank you Nick.

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.

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!!!!

Been living in Vegas for many years and never had to sell or hock any of my items unfortunately as luck would have it that day did eventually find me and let me tell you is it a tough racket to find a decent place out here to do business with. Pawn shops are a joke and could care less about their customers and treated me like another number. Tried and tried and place after place the numbers where all over the place. Finally decided to go to these guys and I’m glad I did. They tested each piece of my jewelry right in from of me with some kind of xray machine. They explained how they calculated the price and paid me cash on the spot. Avery was very helpful and didn’t mind answering my questions and explaining what they do. I left feeling I got the best price for my items. I would recommend them to anyone looking to sell their jewelry.

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.

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!
