Initially offered in 1986 under the Bullion Coin Act of the previous year, the Gold American Eagle Bullion coins have been available annually since. Each coin is guaranteed by the US Government for its weight, content and purity and is seen as a valuable investment option by many.

The one ounce Gold Eagle has an availability date of January 19, 2010 to the Mint's authorized purchasers. No date has been announced for the fractional Eagles (1/2 ounce, 1/4 ounce and 1/10 ounce). Investors and collectors may recall that the 2009 version was only released on December 3, 2009 and the limited quantities were sold-out within days.

Each Eagle is struck from the stated amount of gold plus a small amount of silver and copper resulting in a 22-karat rating. The additional metals create an alloy that is more resistant to scratching and marring than 24-karat gold would be.
