While the American Eagle gold bullion coins have intrinsic value in their precious metal makeup, they also have the added advantage of being a part of a desirable series, and some coins have a higher premium than others depending on anomalies featured in that particular year and version of the coin.
There are four different denomination coins with their own quantity of gold: $5 denomination 1/10 ounce, $10 1/4 ounce, $25 1/2 ounce, and $50 one full ounce gold coins with 22-karat gold. Factors that could lead to increased desirability (and value) include mint mistakes like the 1999 W $10 Eagle with Unfinished PR dies for the regular strike. This coin has a bit of speculation as to its unusual appearance: the first is that they were struck from proof dies that had already been used to strike the proofs for the year; and the second, more likely reason, is that they were struck from dies that did not receive the chrome-plating that proofs receive. There is no record of the exact number of coins in circulation, but The Official Red Book: A Guide Book of United States Coins: 2014 has the mintage estimated as 10,000, while some conservative estimates assert the number is between 400 and 600. Other factors that could increase value are low mintages, the rarer the coin the more sought after they often are.If you would like to learn more about the Gold American Eagles, and how to add these remarkable coins in your retirement accounts, or investments: Call GMRgold today at 1 (877) 795-9585 today, and our previous metals experts will be able to assist you with securing you, and your family’s future; or if you would like to make an immediate purchase, or a take a look at our inventory.
