The U.S. Mint

The United States Mint began producing gold coins for circulation in 1795. However, the use of gold in U.S. coinage actually stopped in 1933 and did not make its return until the debut of the Gold American Eagle series in 1986. While the Gold American Eagle collection is still recognized as legal tender by the government, with a 50 dollar face value, they are not circulated the same way as the Pre-1933 gold coins were.

After the Gold American Eagle series took off in 1986 demand for the coins remained so strong throughout the years that in 2006 the government decided it was time to start production of their first ever 1 oz .9999 fine (24kt) U.S. gold coin, the American Gold Buffalo. While these two series are still definitely the most popular among investors, the U.S. Mint also produces commemorative gold coins annually to honor a multitude of historical events as well as various important historical figures. These commemorative gold coins, along with pre-1933 U.S. gold coins, are extremely popular within the collectible world.
