Both the American Gold Eagle and American Silver Eagle coins were released in 1986, intending to be competitive bullion coins against other mints in the world. However, they ended up becoming much more than that.
On the other hand, the gold eagle will only have a mintage of 1,945. This of course is symbolic of the year that World War II ended. However, this is also the lowest mintage of any U.S. Mint numismatic product ever. This extremely low mintage combined with the fact that this is the final coin of the final year of this design means that this coin will sell out within mere seconds. The best bet with an item like this is to try to place an order online. It is possible that a portion of the coins could be allocated to telephone sales, but there is no guarantee. In addition, with the current pandemic, there would be no phone sales. However, that could change by the time this coin is released.
Each year, the U.S. Mint issues an American Eagle Congratulations Set. The idea for the coins is to offer a gift of congratulations for special occasions. Whether for graduations, anniversaries, or engagements, the American Eagle Congratulations Set is a unique gift to celebrate any special event.
In 1986, the U.S. Mint began striking gold and silver American Eagle coins. Since that time, more than 400,000,000 American Eagle silver coins have been minted, making them one of the most successful U.S. Mint silver bullion coins ever. The rich quality and history of the coin are what make the American Eagle silver so popular and enduring.
The introduction of burnished American Eagle coins by the U.S. Mint in 2006 has become widely popular among collectors. The first coin to be burnished was the American Eagle silver coin, followed by the gold and platinum coins. The burnished finish became especially valued with the American Eagle silver coin, the most popular bullion coin in the world.
