One ounce bullion American Gold Eagles in our choice of year for our best price.

22 Carat Bullion Eagles

The first American Gold Eagles were struck by the United States Mint in 1986. They've been minted from gold mined in the US in every year since, becoming one of the world’s most popular gold bullion coins.

All one ounce Gold Eagles are made from 91.67% gold: the equivalent of 22 carats. They contain exactly one ounce of fine gold like the Gold Buffalo but Eagles are slightly heavier thanks to their alloyed composition, weighing in at 31.1035 grams. 

The value of one oz Gold Eagles varies with the spot price of gold but their nominal face value is $50. 

A limited number of 1 ounce bullion Gold Eagles are offered every year as well as a a smaller number of proof pieces. American Eagles are available in a range of fractional weights, including half, quarter and tenth troy ounce options. Silver, platinum and palladium Eagles are also available though these bear distinct designs.

Gold Eagle Design

The obverse of the Gold Eagle features a version of Augustus Saint-Gaudens' Lady Liberty. Dressed in flowing garb, her hair loose, she holds a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. The US Capitol building is visible in the left background and the word 'LIBERTY' appears above her head and the date to her right.

This design first appeared between 1907 and 1933 on a similarly named United Stated Mint gold coin: the gold Double Eagle or Twenty Dollar Coin. The original is beautiful and much sought-after and fits well on the slightly smaller but marginally purer and heavier modern Gold Eagle.

Between 1986 and 2020 the reverse of the Gold Eagle featured a design by Miley Busiek showing an eagle, wings outstretched, delivering an olive branch to is nesting mate and eaglet. In 2021 a close-up side profile of an eagle by Jennie Norris was introduced.

Our Best Value Coins

We have strict standards for our best value bullion coins. Each piece is meticulously checked by our experts to ensure that the weight and and composition is exactly as advertised.

You may find that your one ounce Gold Eagles show some bag marks, small scratches, knicks or blemishes. This is typical of a pre-owned, circulated coin and will not effect the gold weight.

You'll receive our choice of year when you opt for our best value range, picked from our available stock. If you order multiple Gold Eagles you might find that the dates vary.

If you're looking for a particular year then please do contact us: we may well have what you’re after and, if not, we can source your item for you.


We are always proud to show off our previous customers experiences with you and what they thought of our purchasing through with Britannia Coins.
