There’s the South African Krugerrand, the Canadian Maple Leaf, the Swiss Vreneli, and so many more – but it’s the American Gold Eagle that soars above them all. Between 1986 and 2017, well over 40 million American Gold Eagles have been sold.

Why the American Gold Eagle?

Great Seal of the United StatesOne of the biggest reasons could be historical. Before 1986, ownership of gold bullion by US citizens was outlawed from 1933-1974. In 1975 however, there were no American gold bullion coins, hence the Krugerrand was the most popular coin in the world. However, the US Mint began producing gold and silver coins again, thanks to a recommendation presented by Congressman Ron Paul, in conjunction with his work with the Gold Commission set up by President Reagan in 1981. Hence, the American Gold Eagle became the first annually minted gold coin produced in the United States, and its popularity picked up from there.

The Mark of Lady Liberty

The American Gold Eagle features a dual faced design. On one side is the image of a bald eagle, flying towards its nest where a baby eagle sits waiting. It also features the phrases “United States of America”, “In God We Trust” and “e pluribus unum”, which means “out of many, one” and is the motto of the United States. On the other side is the image of lady liberty, holding a torch aloft in one hand, and with an olive branch in the other. The word “liberty” is also found on the coin face, as is the date of minting. The dates appear in roman numerals on the 1986-1991 coins, but from 1992 onwards they are shown in Arabic numerals. As the design of the American Gold Eagle has not changed since 1986 other than the numeral system change, sellers can be sure that each gold coin is mutually interchangeable and of equal worth in terms of size and purity.

Quality, Purity, and Trust

American Gold Eagles are 22K gold and are made up of .9167 gold, .0533 copper and .03 silver. The one ounce American Gold Eagle coin contains an ounce of pure gold. However, it is worth noting that because it is 91.67% gold, the coin itself weighs slightly more than one ounce (1.0909 oz.) American Gold Eagle coins are produced by the US Mint, which is a division of the US Treasury, the most powerful treasury in the world, which ensures the quality and purity of each minted coin. They are minted in only two locations – the United States Philadelphia and West Point mints. These coins come in different sizes – there are 1/10, 1/4, 1/2 and 1 ounce sized coins for greater convenience of investors.

Legal Tender, Higher Resale Value

The American Gold Eagle is legal tender of the United States of America. The one ounce coin carries a face value of $50. There are also 1/2 oz. ($25), 1/4 oz. ($10) and 1/10 oz. ($5) American Gold Eagle coins. Furthermore, as a collector’s item, some American Gold Eagles from certain dates which are rarer than others command a much higher price than the others.

“With honest and transparent transactions, no hidden fees, and no pressure to sell, we really are the best place to sell gold, diamonds and silver jewelry,” said Global Gold and Silver CEO and President, Steven Madar. “While many of our competitors provide false promises for high payouts, we’re committed to providing only fair and honest transactions.

A few of the ways Global Gold and Silver ensures their customers always receive a fair and honest offer by testing all items in front of the customer; and providing private one-on-one service.

All Items Tested in Front of You

If you try to sell your gold and the gold buyer tells you they have to take your items to the back to test them, don’t believe it. Each gold item should be tested for purity right in front of you, sorted according to its gold content, and it should be weighed on a scale in front of you. Global Gold and Silver does just this, telling you exactly what price you’re getting per troy ounce or per gram of gold.

Professional Service

When selling your gold, coins, and jewelry you should always expect private and one-on-one service. In addition, every legitimate gold buyer is required by law to request a government issued ID from the seller. If this doesn’t happen, that should be a red flag for you. Global Gold and Silver treats its customers with the utmost respect and professionalism, and will always provide you with a written receipt after buying your gold.

Certified Diamond Gemologist and Experienced Staff

Selling your silver coins can be difficult when there are so many types and aspects to consider.  From various years and proof sets to U.S. mint coins and bullion coins, it’s important to find the right gold and silver buyer that is knowledgeable about silver coins. So what should you know about the types of coins that you can sell?
When you’re considering the value of certain years of a coin, some are more valuable than others.  For example, coins minted before 1965 are 90% silver while 1965-1969 with only 40% silver.  This is important especially if a year is rarer and more valuable than others.

If you have a proof set, made of proof coins (coins made using a high-quality minting process and made especially for collectors) from one particular year, certain sets can be more valuable than others.  A 1936 U.S. Proof Set is worth thousands of dollars, which can be more or less than other years.

Mint coins can vary in value as well, and offer a special symbol (mintmark) corresponding to the branch that the coin was minted at.  Prior to 1909 (except 1838-39) the mintmark appeared on the reverse of the coin but coins minted 1968 and later, the mintmark appeared on the obverse side of the coin.  A set of mint coins includes each denomination produced by one particular mint.

A bullion coin is kept as a store of value or as an investment and varies in weight, metal (gold, silver, platinum, or palladium), and type.  These coins have a purity that is greater than 0.900 and sell for a premium over the market price of the metal on the commodities exchanges.  There are various years that produced coins at a heavier weight.  The premium of the coin value is also affected by the demand for the coin.

Each coin differs with each type, year, weight, and purity level and produces a unique value.  It is best to look into the particular coin that you would like to sell and find a gold and silver buyer with the experience to handle the value of your coin.

At Global Gold and Silver, our experts have years of experience and understand what your coin can mean to you.  Whether you would like an appraisal online or in-person, our knowledgeable staff will help you to sell your silver coins at the price it deserves.

We all know that gold is valuable, and that the economy can affect the price.  But how much can gold really be worth? Here are the top 10 most valuable gold items in the world (from most to least expensive):

The Chopard Blue Diamond Ring



 

Blue diamonds are the rarest type of diamond found in the world, and this ring carries a 9-carat blue diamond.  With an 18-karat white gold band, any girl would go crazy over this ring.  But, it costs $16.26 million to own it.

 

 

 

1933 Patek Phillipe’s “Supercomplication” Pocket Watch

“Supercomplication” was designed to beat out James Packard in a timepiece complication race.



The 18-karat gold pocket watch was made for Wall Street banker Henry Graves, Jr., required 5 years to design and build.  It features 24 complications, including a chart of the night sky over New York City.  It was sold in 1999 for $11 million to a private owner.

 

 

1933 Gold Double Eagle Gold Coin

This coin was never officially issued. They were minted, but none were released into circulation because of the changes made to currency laws in the Great Depression. A coin was sold in 2002 for a total cost of $7,590,000. There are still currently 10 coins that were seized by the U.S. Government. The remaining 10 coins, known as the Langbord coins, remain at Fort Knox.

The 1804 Bust Dollar

This coin’s estimated worth is a whopping $7,500,000. It is considered one of the most famous U.S. coins because of its rarity. This coin series dated from 1795 to 1804. Although silver, the 1804 Bust dollars were not actually struck in 1804, but in 1803 and earlier!

1787 Gold Brasher Doubloon

[caption id="attachment_2368" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="The Doubloon was minted by Ephraim Brasher, a sliversmith, goldsmith, and neighbor of George Washington. This rare coin contains 26.66 grams of gold and was worth about $15 when it was minted. Today, its gold value would be $1,500."][/caption]

 

In 2011, Blanchard and Company Inc. sold this gold coin for $7.4 million. It is known to be the very first gold coin in the United States that had a denomination in dollars.

 

 

 

 

 

Rare Edward III

This coin sold for approximately $6.80 million and is only the third known surviving coin of its kind. It was in circulation from December 1343 until July 1344.

The 1822 Half Eagle

The half eagle coin is a five dollar piece, and only three are known to be in existence. The estimated worth of this coin is $5,000,000. The last time a coin like this was auctioned was in October of 1982 from Bowers & Ruddy, and was sold for $687,500. 

The Breguet & Fils Watch

This watch sold in May 2012 by Christie’s for an astounding $4,686,120. It has two movements and is made of 18k gold. This impressive watch was sold to the Breguet museum in 2012. 

The 1907 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle

This is considered to be one of the most beautiful coins ever struck, and is estimated to be valued at $3,000,000. This coin is considered ultra high relief because it was struck seven times on a metal press in order to fully bring all the details to attention, which brought the surface of the coin to be nearly pure gold!

The 1839 Ten Dollar Proof

[caption id="attachment_2367" align="alignleft" width="226" caption="The obverse of the coin features the bust of Lady Liberty wearing a coronet and surrounded by 13 stars. The reverse features an American Eagle holding an olive branch in one claw and three arrows in the other."][/caption]

 

With less than five known samples of this ten-dollar proof, the estimated value of this coin sits at $1,000,000. It was promised that this coin would be kept in circulation despite the changing laws with gold content in coins, and was minted in Philadelphia.
