Introduction

Tavex is pleased to offer the 1oz American Eagle Gold Bullion, the most popular gold piece issued by the United States, and one of the foremost investment gold bullion coins in the world. The popularity of these American Eagle gold coins stems from their beautiful design, high quality, and prestigious legal tender status. First released by the United States Mint in 1986, American Eagle gold coins have become the preferred tangible asset of many precious metals experts who, to this date, have bought more than 30 million pieces.

With their purity guaranteed by the US Government, American Eagle gold bullion coins are recognised worldwide. They are supported by a deep liquid market, making them suitable for most private individuals. Especially for those who would like to diversify and hedge their portfolios against unfavourable market events, American Eagle gold coins offer a unique opportunity for portfolio diversification. They serve as a valuable market hedge in various asset classes, including stock markets. 

These coins, with their fine gold content measured in troy ounces and 22 karats gold alloy, are not only a way to track the gold price tracking but also serve as a form of physical gold that provides investment security. They can act as a safeguard against portfolio risk in a dynamic financial market environment, helping investors protect their bottom line and reduce the potential to lose money.

American Eagle gold coins offer many advantages. They are a reliable means of preserving wealth and enhancing your portfolio's stability, backed by their monetary stature and global recognition.

Why Buy

  • American Eagle gold coins directly track the price of gold. This makes American Eagles a valuable addition to various investment options across different asset classes such as stock markets. The value of American Eagle gold coins is primarily determined by their fine gold content, measured in troy ounces, which is linked to the prevailing market price of gold.
  • American Eagle gold coins are recognised as money and were granted legal tender status in 1985 by the United States Congress. This status establishes them as a form of currency in addition to being a precious metal. This makes them a unique choice for central banks, financial advisors, and investors seeking to diversify their portfolio and holdings.
  • These coins are highly liquid and widely recognised, with over 30 million coins issued by the United States Mint to date. This deep liquid market ensures that investors can easily buy and sell American Eagle gold coins, providing flexibility in managing cash flows.
  • American Eagle gold coins are known for their durability due to being minted from a gold alloy that is 91.67% pure (22 karats). American Eagle Coins also have additional silver and copper components that enhance the coins’ surface. This durability makes them suitable for periods of time, ensuring that investors can hold onto them as a long-term store of value.
  • American Eagle Coins are considered as the equivalent of savings. American Eagle bullion coins offer a secure and stable investment option for individuals looking to safeguard their wealth. Their low correlation with other financial market assets means they can serve as a market risk hedge. This protects portfolios from potential losses in other asset investment and classes.

History

The United States financial panic of the 1930s and gold

With the United States in the midst of severe depression in 1930s, gold naturally became the asset of choice. With people seeking to exchange all forms of paper securities, including bank notes, for gold, the financial sector and the Government itself experienced a run on their gold reserves. To prevent this, in 1933 President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued the infamous executive order 6102 that criminalised the ownership of gold and made all government issued paper instruments non-redeemable in gold. From 1933 onwards, a new financial era began in the US, where pieces of green paper became the cornerstone of the country’s monetary system.  

Sales of American Eagle coins surges 

Roosevelt’s executive order that penalised ownership of gold was in place for 41 years before President Gerald Ford repealed the law in 1974. It would take another eleven years for the United States Congress to pass the Gold Bullion Act of 1985, which authorised the creation of legal tender gold and silver coinage. Subsequently, in 1986, the United States Mint issued the first gold American Eagle coin. Considering that this was the first legal tender gold coin released by the United States in over five decades, there were many buyers waiting on the sidelines. In fact, in its first year of release, the United States Mint had to mint 3.6 million pieces, or 62 tonnes of American Eagle gold coins, to satisfy the demand from gold experts and coin dealers! 

The gold American Eagle coin – the perfect hedge

With its prestigious legal tender status granted by the United States Government, American Eagle bullion coins have since 1986 been one of the most preferred gold coins of gold buyers who wish to hedge their portfolio against falling stock markets and economic turmoil. Figures from the United State Mint related to demand for American Eagles clearly show that gold experts markedly increased purchases of these coins during the stock market crash of 1987, right before the peak of the dot-com bubble (also referred to as the internet bubble) of 1999 – 2000, and more recently in 2008 – 2009 when the US and other major economies plunged into severe recession. In fact, on an annual basis, demand during these periods increased on average by almost 100%, proving that in turbulent times in the market, the gold American Eagle coin becomes an asset of choice.

The US West Point Mint

By witnessing the growing popularity of other countries’ 24 karat gold bullion coins, of which Canada’s Maple Leaf and Austria’s Philharmonic gold coins are good examples, the United States Mint decided to issue for the first time in its history its own version of a .9999 fine legal tender gold coin. Until 2006, the only American legal tender gold bullion coin available for purchase was the gold American Eagle which, unlike the Gold Buffalo, is a 22 karat coin and is made of gold and a copper - silver alloy. The introduction of the gold American Buffalo coin was also a historical moment for the United States Mint which for the first time issued two separate legal tender gold coins that contained different gold purities.
