2019 Eagles Have Landed!


Precious metals are looking extremely strong as we transition into 2019. Since December 1, gold has gained more than 5%, silver 9%, platinum 3%, and palladium has surged more than 5% to a new record high. Happy New Year, indeed!

Market fundamentals for continued gains have seldom been more promising. Overvalued stock markets are faltering as global economic growth slows and investors shift into safe havens. The strong dollar, which pressured gold in 2018, is expected to weaken in 2019 as the Fed phases out rate hikes. And with the return of divided government, gridlock is likely to grip Washington and create additional headwinds to growth.

Meanwhile, debt levels worldwide continue to rise, with the US nearing $22 trillion in national debt, up $2 trillion in the last two years alone. And the threat of substantially higher inflation looms large after years of easy money flooding the global financial system.

It's no wonder investors are turning once again to precious metals, especially gold and silver, to protect and increase their wealth as the new year begins!

2019 1 oz US Gold, Silver, Platinum Eagles

To help you insure your portfolio against future shocks, we are pleased to offer 2019 1 oz US Gold Eagles, 2019 1 oz Silver Eagles, and 2019 1 oz Platinum Eagles at extremely competitive prices. These new issues are now shipping.

Normally, the US Mint only releases Gold Eagles and Silver Eagles in January, with Platinum Eagles coming later in the year. This year, we are particularly pleased to offer 2019 Platinum Eagles today as well. Only 20,000 were struck in 2017 and 30,000 were struck in 2018. We believe this year's mintage will be about the same as last year. At under $850 an ounce platinum remains oversold, in our opinion.

For your convenience, you may buy online or call us at 1-800-613-9323. Our expert account managers are happy to assist you with any questions. All orders over $999 are shipped free.

We look forward to a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2019!

Buying American Gold Eagle Bullion Coins

American Gold Eagle coins in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) grade are an excellent way to buy gold. Along with American Gold Buffaloes, they are the only modern gold bullion coins backed by the U.S. government for weight and gold content.

The US Gold Eagle obverse features the world-famous Augustus Saint-Gaudens design adapted from the classic U.S. $20 gold double eagles minted from 1907 to 1933. The reverse is graced with the inspiring "A Family of Eagles" design by Mrs. Miley Busiek.

Gold Eagles are legal U.S. tender, not replica coins. Produced since 1986 by the U.S. Mint, they are available in four sizes: one-ounce ($50 face value), half-ounce ($25 face value), quarter-ounce ($10 face value), and tenth-ounce ($5 face value). They are also available as sets. Each one-ounce American Eagle gold coin contains precisely one troy ounce of pure 24-karat gold.

U.S. Gold Eagle bullion coins are non-reportable by brokers in lots under 25 ounces, and they are eligible for IRAs (see below).

Benefits of American Gold Eagles

Gold content guaranteed by the U.S. Mint -- Along with Gold Buffaloes, Gold Eagles are the only bullion gold coins guaranteed as to weight and gold content by the U.S. government.

Minted in 22-karat gold -- Using the durable gold standard established for gold circulating coinage more than 300 years ago, each Gold Eagle coin is minted in 91.67% fine gold alloyed with a small amount of silver and copper added to harden and protect it against damage. Pure, 24-karat gold is actually quite soft. Adding alloy to pure gold makes it many times more durable than gold itself. Each Gold Eagle coin contains its specified weight (one-ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce, or tenth-ounce) in pure 24-karat gold. The alloy weight is extra. A one-ounce American Gold Eagle, for example, actually weighs 1.0909 troy ounces.

Private and non-reportable -- Unlike most gold bullion, American Gold Eagles are non-reportable the IRS by brokers. Other modern-issue gold bullion coins like Canadian Gold Maple Leafs and South African Gold Krugerrands are reportable to the IRS when sold to gold dealers in increments of 25 ounces or more. American Eagles are exempt from this reporting requirement.

Eligible for Individual Retirement Accounts -- Unlike other gold bullion coins, U.S. Gold Eagles are eligible to fund IRAs. In order to include Gold Eagles in your IRA portfolio you must have an independent custodian to hold your gold. American Gold Exchange works closely with several suitable IRA custodians.
