Coin Highlights

  • The official gold bullion coin of the United States of America;
  • Guaranteed to contain 1 Troy oz of actual gold content BU condition;
  • 38th issue of the American Gold Eagle;
  • The obverse presents the Saint-Gaudens design of Lady Liberty;
  • Depicting the new bald eagle design on the reverse by Jennie Norris;
  • Reeded edge variations for anti-counterfeit security;
  • Face value of $50 backed by the US Government.


2023 marks the third issue of the new reverse design by Jennie Norris. Her innovative depiction of the bald eagle shows the bird’s head, its deep eyes earnestly looking ahead. Above the effigy is the inscription “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “IN GOD WE TRUST,” both mottos of the country. Surrounding the outer rim, the engravings read “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “50 DOLLARS 1 OZ. FINE GOLD”.

As for the obverse, since the program’s inception, the US Mint has used a revamped version of Lady Liberty from the discontinued $20 Double Eagle coin, designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens still in the dawn of the 20th century. In this depiction, the Goddess of freedom, the personification of the ideals bestowed by the Founding Fathers, strides forward, a lit torch on her stretched right hand, guiding society through a path of enlightenment. Her left hand holds out an olive branch, symbolizing the country’s desire for peace.

Other interesting design elements include the Capitol Building on the lower left and the rising sun’s rays in the background. Six-pointed stars encircle the outer rim, and “LIBERTY” appears above Lady Liberty’s head.

Security Features

The 2023 1 oz American Gold Eagles have an improved anti-counterfeiting mechanism. The edges contain a reeded variation. It is a small piece of a plain surface, randomly in the reeds pattern.

2023 1 oz American Gold Eagle Mintage

The 1 Troy oz version of the Gold Eagles is the main piece in the bullion program. The coin is struck using 22-karat gold (.9167 fineness). The United States Mint adds 3% silver and 5.33% copper, creating a more resistant and durable alloy. Nevertheless, the coin is guaranteed to contain a whole troy ounce of pure gold, as the silver and copper are added in addition to the full weight in pure gold. In other words, American Gold Eagle coins are slightly heavier than other similar gold coins, such as the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf or the Australian Gold Kangaroo.

In total, the 1 oz American Gold Eagle weighs 1.0909 troy ounces (or 33.931 grams). It has a diameter of 1.287 inches (32.70 mm).

American Gold Eagle Series

The American Eagle program started in 1986 with the American Gold Eagle and the American Silver Eagle. In 1997, the US Mint included the American Platinum Eagle coin and, more recently, in 2017, a palladium counterpart.

The American Gold Eagle coins include fractional sizes, allowing investors to choose from varied sizes and prices, the one that fits better on their budget. The fractional sizes are ½ troy ounce with a face value of $25, ¼ troy ounce bearing a face value of $10, and finally, the 1/10 troy ounce of $5.

Why Invest in American Gold Eagles?

Many experts believe that, nowadays, it is essential to have a diversified investment portfolio. Gold is a precious metal that has been used as a bartering item and even base metal for money for millennia. It tends to perform well during economic uncertainty and could function as a sensible way to hedge against inflation and fiat currency devaluation.

US Gold Eagle coins are arguably the most successful gold bullion coin in the world. They are sought-after by investors and collectors who enjoy the semi-numismatic value of this gold coin. Therefore, many see it as a more liquid option when compared to gold bars, for instance, or other gold coins available in the market.

Finally, 1 oz American Gold Eagles are IRA-approved, constituting a savvy way to invest in gold bullion and enjoy its long-term benefits.
