Gold Eagles are minted at West Point, New York, and come in four sizes: 1-ounce, 1/2-ounce, 1/4-ounce, and 1/10-ounce.

They are by far the most popular and sell at small premiums over the value of their gold content.

The price that you pay (per coin) is the current “spot gold bid” plus the premium.

These bullion coins are 22 karat gold, which means they contain 91.6% gold and 8.4% of a copper-silver alloy. Because They are 22 karat, many investors incorrectly believe that Gold Eagles have less than an ounce of gold. This is not so. A 1-oz Gold Eagle contains exactly one ounce of gold, and the smaller coins contain the gold content stamped on them. The copper-silver alloy causes the coins to weigh slightly more than their gold contents.
