The American Gold Eagle is minted at the West Point, New York mint which operates primarily to produce American Silver and Gold Eagle and American Buffalo coins.
The design of the American Gold Eagle coin originally appeared in 1907 on the United States $20 gold coin, or double eagle. U.S. Double eagles were minted from 1907-1933.
The American Gold Eagle is also minted in denominations of $5 (1/10 ounce), $10 (1/4 ounce) and $25 (1/2 ounce).
From 1986–1991 the American Gold Eagle bore Roman numeral dates. In 1992, the U.S. Mint switched to adding Arabic numbers for dates. The original 1907 U.S. Double Eagle also contained Roman numerals.
The American Gold Eagle is 22K gold and is considered legal tender in the United States.
