When Gold Maple Leafs were introduced in 1979 by the Royal Canadian Mint, they became so successful that the US were prompted into producing a gold bullion investment coin of their own. The American Eagle made an appearance in 1986 and was fashioned on the coins earliest versions that in turn were inspired by British crown coins in 1795. The modern bullion coins also take a design hint from its predecessors, adopting the Lady Liberty engraving designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in the early 1900's. The design was personally funded by the former President Theodore Roosevelt having just served his tenure in the Oval Office. The constitutional laws that determined the production of the new American Eagle was passed in 1985 and states that the coins can only be made from gold mined in the United States. The coins also include metals alloys such as silver and copper which give them a softer finish.
The Gold Eagle's popular design and anti-fraud measures are a secure way of investing in physical gold. In the 20th Century a spate of aluminum / copper alloy or nickel American Gold Eagles flooded the market, but thanks to security procedures in modern day coins production the same problem does not exist.
