Coins from the U.S. Mint
Gold and silver are great investments, and bullion coins are an excellent way to add precious metals to your portfolio. They tend not to follow normal market forces, even running counter to it at times, and add stability to a group of investments.
American Silver, Gold and Platinum Eagles are guaranteed by the U.S. Government to be official investment grade bullion.

American Gold Eagles
American Gold Eagles are made of 22-karat gold. They are available in 1-, 1/2-, 1/4- and 1/10-oz. 22-karat coins. You can learn more about their specifications in the brochure on the U.S. Mint’s Gold Eagle information page.
