Graded American Gold Eagle Coins are a popular choice for both Coin Collectors and Precious Metal Investors, because they can be bought or sold, sight unseen, with a guarantee of the quality of the coin’s condition based on the Numismatic Grading scale from 1, which is almost a blank, to a Perfect Mint State or Proof 70 designation.
There are only two Top-Tier Grading Services; NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation), and PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) who are the primary players in the Grading Service space. There are four denominations of Gold American Eagles, ranging from a small tenth-ounce issue to the popular large one-ounce Gold American Eagle, with assigned face values of $5, $10, $25, and $50 respectively, all struck in pure 22 karat gold coin.
America Gold eagle bullion coins, first issued in 1986, feature Lady Liberty on the obverse striding confidently from the rays of the sun, and a proud American eagle on the reverse, soaring above its family in a nest below. Graded gold coins for sale come with many different holders (or slab) options, with assorted cores and specialty labels available, which Collectors highly covet for their collections.
