We carry UNITED STATES $50 ONE-OUNCE GOLD "AMERICAN EAGLE" BULLION COINS

(1986-DATE)

In 1986, the United States began striking gold bullion coins with a face value of $50 and a net weight of 1 ounce of pure gold. The value of these coins was intended to be tied directly to their metal value, although some low-mintage years and all of the Proof versions fetch premium prices.

From 1986-1991, Roman numerals represent the date; from 1992 on, Arabic numerals are used. Proof versions have been struck each year since 1986 at the West Point Mint. Proof versions bear mintmarks; Uncirculated versions do not.

Proof coins may be ordered by the general public directly from the Mint. Uncirculated coins are distributed by selected representatives, who make them available to the secondary market.
