By choosing random dates which are limited to excess stock on hand, you can save additional premiums over specific previous years as well as the current year issued coins. The dates of the coins offered in Random Years are 1986-current. Since we are having a hot ticket item at a lower premium, date requests are not considered. If you are looking for a specific date, please view our American Gold Eagles listed by date. Each Proof American Gold Eagle coin is guaranteed by the US Mint and Treasury for it’s weight and purity!
The purity, of the Proof American Gold Eagle, is 91.67% gold but contains a 1/2 troy ounce of pure gold. The additional metals in the coins are copper and silver creating a purity of 22 karat. This additional metal is added to keep the coin from scratching as gold is actually a softer metal and can scratch easily in it’s pure state. The coin weighs actually more than a 1/2 ounce and contains 22 karats.
