The concept of uncirculated gold coins has been around for quite some time. What this means is that the coin has never been circulated into the regular currency reserves which means that every single specimen is in mint condition.

For the sake of collectors, and for the maintaining of value, the United States Mint creates sets of coins every single printing which are to be sold off purely as uncirculated gold coins. Of course they do the same for all of their coins which means that one can go to their website and purchase a roll of any of the currently printed coins in uncirculated rolls or single sleeves. There are many different locations specializing in selling gold that also provide mint condition gold coins that have never entered general circulation.

It is important to point out the differences between a proof set and an uncirculated set of coins as there seems to be some misunderstanding about them. The proof sets are specifically minted with special qualities or extra work done to them before being sold off. In some cases an artist may hand paint the coins to make them look better, but to the true coin collector, it is the uncirculated coins which look the best.

The value of any coin is increased when it is in better condition and nothing is better then an uncirculated coin. Just because gold coins are already very valuable for the fact that they are composed of a precious metal, does not mean they are not worth more in mint condition. For the investor though, purchasing uncirculated gold coins means that you are going to get the best price for your money. In many cases the value of the coin being sold directly from the mint is based on the value of gold at the time of printing and not the current spot price. For an investor this is crucial especially when the value of gold is much higher then it was at the time of minting.

St. Gauden’s Double Eagle Gold Coin

December 12th, 2009 admin Posted in Gold Coins No Comments »

St-gaudens-gold-double-eagle-gold-coinFrom the years 1907 up until 1933, the U.S. Mint produced a twenty dollar gold coin known as the St. Gaudens Double Eagle. The St. Gaudens Double Eagle gold coin is named after the designer who originally sculpted both the obverse as well as reverse sides of the coin.

On the obverse side of the St. Gaudens Double Eagle gold coin, you will find Lady Liberty holding on to the Torch of Freedom as well as an olive branch. In the background there is also the U.S. Capitol. On the reverse side there is a bald eagle which is flying past the sun. As with most American coins, the lettering 'E Pluribus Unum' can be found; along the edge with the standardized American Stars.

This particular gold coin weighs in at just over a troy ounce and is 2 millimeters in thickness. The composition of this particular coin though is only 90% gold with the remaining portion being that of copper. The gold itself weighs in at 0.9675 troy ounces.

The development of the St. Gaudens Double Eagle gold coin was as a result of Theodore Roosevelt’s effort to make the American coins more beautiful and as such hired Augustus St. Gaudens to overhaul the existing designs. Before he passed away he had managed to finish this one coin as well as the Indian Eagle coin. It is considered by many as one of the best designs in history and today the double eagle is found as the standard for all American gold bullion coins printed by the mint.

The St. Gaudens Double Eagle gold coin has a lot of history and even went through many different design changes before finalizing the design. Luckily for investors out there, some of the flawed designs along the way made it into circulation making them some of the most sought after coins from anywhere around the globe.
