Press Release (ePRNews.com) - New York, NY - Dec 19, 2016 - ​​This U.S. Mint series is one of the most collectible in the world, produced in three versions: silver, gold and platinum, with the weight, content and purity guaranteed by the United States government. The history of American Eagles started in 1986 after it was authorized by the Gold Bullion Act of 1985. Since that time, these coins have gained appreciation equally among collectors and investors as a valuable investment option, available to be added to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and as an impressive numismatic addition.

In 2016 American Eagles celebrated the 30th anniversary of mintage, and in 2017 you can add to your collection the first issues of a new decade!

The 2017 gold version of American Eagles is struck from .9167 fine (22-karat) gold and comes in four different denominations and troy weighs: 1 troy ounce ($50), ½ troy ounce ( $25), ¼ troy ounce ($10) and 1/10 troy ounce ($5). The obverse design is based on the Augustus Saint-Gaudens artwork for the 1907 Double Eagle, featuring the Lady Liberty in front of Capitol building, walking confidently against the sun’s rays, and holding the fiery torch in her right hand and an olive branch in the left. The reverse presents a time-honored American male bald eagle in flight, carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female awaits with her young one.

The 2017 silver version of American Eagles produced from 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver and has a denomination of $1 dollar. The obverse design depicts the Adolph A. Weinman’s design showing Lady Liberty draped in an American flag, walking gracefully as the sun rises over a ridge. The reverse shows a heraldic eagle below 13 small stars, representing the original colonies.

The 2017 platinum version of American Eagle comes in .9995 fine Platinum, with the 1 troy ounce coin weigh and an impressive face value of $100 dollars. The obverse design bears an elegant portrait of the Statue of Liberty, completed with the inscriptions “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2017.” It’s been the same platinum coin obverse since the first release. The reverse presents the American eagle, flying among America with a rising sun in the background.

Even though the gold, silver and platinum versions have different designs, they all provide historical and highly praised patriotic motifs: the Lady Liberty is the worldwide symbol of Hope, Life, Freedom and the Pursuit of Happiness and the American Eagle presents the strength and security of the United States.

These stunning coins are also produced in both Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated conditions. The U.S. Mint uses a specialized minting process for Proof coins that provides detailed images, a frosted finish, and a mirror-like field. To create the Uncirculated American Eagles the mint practices the coining press, struck on specially burnished blanks and add the “W” mint mark of the West Point facility.

American Eagles are highly praised on the precious metals market for their patriotic symbolism, a quality backed by the U.S. government, with high liquidity, and an exclusive production. Since first launched, the U.S. Mint has issued more than millions American Eagle coins, and has proved that even after 30 years of mintage this timeless collection hasn’t lost its value and is still the most sought after bullion in the world.

Browse our entire selection of the American Eagles and don’t miss a chance to add these amazing coins as safe and intelligent investment addition to your portfolio, with overwhelming demand getting higher year after year.
