Product Details

American Gold Eagle coins commemorated their 10th anniversary back in 1996. Following their successful debut in 1986, the demand for these coins gradually declined each year. The 1996 1 oz American Gold Eagle marked a significant point in the coin’s history, with reduced demand at its lowest. Discover this piece, available for purchase now through BullionMax.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships secured in a protective flip.
  • 11th year of release for the American Gold Eagle!
  • Limited mintage of only 189,148 coins!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of actual gold content in BU condition.
  • Bears a face value of $50 (USD) by the government of the United States.
  • The obverse side features Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Liberty design.
  • The reverse field displays Miley Busiek’s bald eagle family.

The 1996 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin signaled a notable shift in the series from the US Mint. Initially, the 1 oz coin held the highest demand among the four available weights. However, a decade later, a different coin emerged as the new favorite. Interestingly, while the 1 oz coin saw its lowest demand, the 1/10 oz coin nearly doubled its demand in 1996 and consistently matched or surpassed the 1 oz coin’s popularity.

The obverse of the 1996 1 oz American Gold Eagle features Liberty—a captivating portrayal by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, symbolizing progress with her torch as a guiding light. This design was a hallmark of the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin until 1933.

On the reverse, Miley Busiek’s design depicts a family of bald eagles in their nest, showcasing a male eagle flying over the nest while the female guards the hatchlings.

Each 1996 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coin listed on BullionMax is in BU condition, exhibiting no wear and tear but may display minor flaws, such as breaks in luster or surface spots, typical of coins in this condition.
