A History of the 1 oz. Gold Eagle Coin

American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins were first minted in 1986, having first been authorized by the Gold Bullion Act of 1985. Signed by President Ronald Reagan, this act required that the U.S. Mint begin production of a family of 22-karat gold bullion coins in one-half, one-quarter, and one-tenth denominations, and outlined everything from the design to each coin’s diameter.

With the passing of the Gold Bullion Act and the production of the 1 oz. Gold American Eagle Coin, the U.S. began competing with the likes of the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf and South African Krugerrand, which dominated the global coin market at the time.

The 1 oz. Gold American Eagle Coin Design

The Obverse Gold Eagle Design: Lady Liberty
The image on the front of the 1 oz. Gold American Eagle Coin was selected in 1986 based on a design by renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens in the early 1900s. Saint-Gaudens’ design was originally produced for the $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle Gold Coin, minted between 1907 and 1933.

At the center of the coin’s obverse design is Lady Liberty’s full-length figure, her face framed by windswept hair and stamped with a fearless gaze. Her stance is unwavering, as she raises a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The Capitol building sits in the left background.

The Reverse Gold Eagle Design: Eagle Family
The image on the back of the 1 oz. Gold American Eagle Coin was created in 1986 by American sculptor Miley Busiek (now known as Miley Tucker-Frost). She first came up with her design concept in 1980 after watching Ronald Reagan’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.

The reverse side of the 1 oz. Gold American Eagle Coin features a family of bald eagles, with a male eagle flying above a nest and holding an olive branch in his talons. A female eagle sits in the nest, her wings protectively encircling two eaglets.

1 oz. Gold American Eagles Are IRA-Approved Gold Coins

While the Gold American Eagle is an essential part of any well-diversified precious metals portfolio, it can also act as a fundamental form of wealth insurance when held in a Self-Directed IRA. It is part of the select family of gold coins and bars that have been approved for inclusion in IRAs by the Internal Revenue Code.

When incorporated into your retirement strategy, gold can offer greater peace of mind and a form of financial security that may not come with a traditional retirement plan. See how you can secure retirement funds in a Self-Directed IRA through U.S. Money Reserve's Gold Standard Precious Metals IRA program.

How Much Do 1 oz. Gold American Eagle Coins Cost?
