About the 1986 $25 Gold American Eagle
When you bring home a 1986 Gold American Eagle you're bringing home a piece of history. After decades of American law prohibiting gold ownership, President Ronald Reagan made gold bullion coins available to the public. The 1986 set is the very first.
This is a fractional coin with a symbolic $25 denomination on the front. It contains ½ Troy oz. of .9167 pure gold. The weight and purity of the gold are backed by the United States government. The coin is also just a work of art in its own right, a piece you can be proud to enjoy or display.
What makes this coin a good buy?
Gold bullion is a sure bet for any precious metals portfolio. It forms the foundation and the backbone. Buying this fractional piece gives you a little more flexibility than sticking solely to 1 oz. pieces. This coin also provides a nice start for investors who have a little less to work with.
Be sure to keep it in its brilliant uncirculated condition. Gold American Eagles have been popular with collectors. This coin may well achieve a value to collectors which exceeds the price of gold by a considerable margin. Thus, you can count on it as a low-risk, high reward investment choice.
