American Gold Eagle
Gold Eagles are legal tender and an easy, convenient, and affordable way to add gold to an investment portfolio. Their $50 face value is only symbolic, as gold's market price has historically been higher and therefore, the weight of the gold in the coin is worth more than the face value. They sell most closely to gold's prevailing market price, and are America's only official investment-grade gold bullion coins. Valued by its weight in gold, unlike commemorative or numismatic coins valued by limited mintage, rarity, condition and age, bullion coins are purchased by investors seeking a simple and tangible means to own and invest in the gold market.
