1/4 oz American Gold Eagle Coins

American Gold Eagle: 1/4 oz

The American Gold Eagle is an official gold bullion coin of the United States. Authorized under the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985, and was first released by the United States Mint in 1986.

1/4 American Eagle Gold coins

Since the term “Eagle” is also the official United States designation for pre-1933 ten dollars gold coins, the weight of each gold coin is typically used when describing modern American Gold Eagles (e.g., “1/4-ounce American Gold Eagle”) to avoid confusion. This is particularly true with the 1/4-oz American Gold Eagle, which has a marked face value of ten dollars.

The American Gold Eagle is made from a resilient 22-karat gold that resists minor scratching and marring. The American Gold Eagle 1/4 oz coin is renowned for its beauty as well as its adherence to exacting specifications of weight and purity.

Value Of 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle

The 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle coins are legally marked from the US Mint to be a $10 coin, are legal tender for all debts private and public at their face value. However, face values do not reflect their intrinsic value, which is much greater and is mainly dictated by their weight and the current precious metal price. Simply multiply 0.25 by the current spot price of gold and you’ll see 1/4 ounce of gold is worth far more than its $10 face value.

Why Buy American Gold Eagle Coins

Gold is a highly active market, meaning it has high liquidity and is easy to sell. The price of gold is also reported daily in major newspapers, and can be followed up-to-the minute on websites, making it easy to track your investment.

American Gold Eagle coins can also be added to your Individual Retirement Account (IRAs), adding invaluable security of having your long-term investments with you at home as well as diversity to your investment portfolio. Additionally, the fact that the coins are physically solid, and can be kept in one’s personal property, makes them attractive. In the event of mass computer or internet crashes, owning “shares” of gold that is held in a vault or bank in another location would be at risk.
