American Eagle bullion is among the most popular gold investments in the world and the 1/10oz coin is the smallest and least expensive of the US Mint collection. These coins are therefore more accessible to a wider market and represent a great opportunity for consumers to start your gold coin collection or add more bullion to your existing investment portfolio.With a gold content of 22 karats and a high liquidity value, American Eagle coins are ideal to hedge against inflation.
American Eagle coins are legal tender in the United States, but are also widely accepted around the world thus have extremely high liquidity. Whether you are looking to buy or sell American Eagle coins you should not have any problems getting a good price. The one-tenth weight is also less expensive than higher denominations thus an ideal asset to add to your investment portfolio without having to overstretch your budget. Adding gold bullion coins little by little allows you to accrue a good-sized collection that will earn you a profit. Furthermore, gold is an excellent investment tool in times of economic crisis. Given the debt system created by central banks, another financial collapse is inevitable at which time the price of the gold pieces will rise significantly. If you buy gold American Eagle coins whilst spot prices are low, you can expect an excellent return on your investment. It should be noted the $5 face value does not represent the actual price. In the current economic climate they are much more valuable!
The design of the American Eagle gold coin changes little from one year to the next. On the obverse side is Lady Liberty, originally created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the $20 dollar coin in 1907. On the reverse is the esoteric symbol of the double-headed eagle.
The American Eagles are rich in symbolism. Behind Lady Liberty we see the sun rising up over the capitol building with thirteen strands of light emitted from both sides. The image is representative of stability in the US economy and indicates a new dawn of financial prowess. The obverse side also has the familiar 50 stars representing each of the united states of America together with the Capitol building tucked into the bottom left corner.
The reverse of the coins depicts a family of Eagles building a nest. The male Eagle returns home brandishing an olive leaf, a symbol of strength and stability, whilst the female Eagle protects her young. The Eagle has been a symbolic creature of North America since ancient times. The reverse also states the country of origin, the weight of 1/10 of an ounce of FINE GOLD and the face value of "5 Dollars". To the right of the main image, the words "IN GOD WE TRUST" are engraved, whilst to the left is the Latin motto E PLURIBUS UNUM meaning "one out of many." Both are mottos of the US Senate.
The modern version of the American Eagle gold coin was introduced as a private collectors item in 1986 to help meet the demand for gold as an investment asset. The original versions of the coins however, were first minted in 1795 and were designed on the dimensions and gold content of the English crown which had a gold content of 22 karats, or 91.7 per cent. The purity was reduced 90% in 1834. Under the terms of the Gold bullion Act of 1985, the gold content in American Eagle coins was restored to the original 22 karats and also adopted the Lady Liberty symbol that had been created by American Renaissance sculptor Augustus Saint-Gauden originally intended for the $20 dollar coin in the early 20th Century. The image was personally commissioned by former US President, Theodore Roosevelt not long after he had stepped down from office at the White House. When the coins were reintroduced in 1986, they appeared with a modern version of the double-headed Eagle created by nationally recognised sculptor Miley Busiek who was later commissioned to produce artwork for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in the Oval office together with the Smithsonian American History Museum and Austin University in Texas.
