At Provident Metals, we’re excited to offer you the opportunity to own a piece of history with the 1986 American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin. This coin marks the inception of the iconic American Eagle series, introduced by the United States Mint in 1986. It represents a significant moment in numismatic history as it was the first time in over 130 years that the US Mint struck gold coins with a purity exceeding .900.


  • Individual coins are securely packaged in plastic flips, while multiples of 10 – 20 come in convenient tubes.
  • This coin marks the debut of the American Gold Eagle collection!
  • Each coin contains 1 Troy oz of pure gold in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.
  • It holds a face value of $50 (USD) as recognized by the United States government.
  • The obverse features the iconic image of Liberty designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
  • On the reverse, you’ll find a stunning portrayal of a family of bald eagles.

Each 1986 American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin available at Provident Metals is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, ensuring its pristine quality. While these coins may exhibit minor imperfections such as breaks in the luster or contact marks from the minting process, they show no signs of circulation wear.


Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Liberty design, considered one of the finest in American coinage history, graces the obverse of this 1986 American Eagle Gold Coin. Modified slightly for this release to include two additional stars representing Hawaii and Alaska’s entry into the Union, it remains a timeless symbol of freedom and independence.


The reverse of the 1986 Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin depicts a touching scene of a family of bald eagles in their nest, crafted by Miley Busiek. It captures the essence of familial care and protection, with the male eagle returning to the nest bearing an olive branch while the female watches over their young.


Produced annually by the United States Mint, American Gold Eagle coins are now available in various finishes, including bullion, proof, and burnished. However, the 1986 edition was initially offered in bullion and proof options, with the bullion version available in 1 oz and fractional weights.
