Detailed Information:

Since then it has never had to look back as it has risen in its popularity to such an extent that it has received worldwide recognition in just 30 years.

These coins come in 4 different sizes of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/10 oz which makes it easy for a variety of investors and collectors of all budgets to invest in these coins due to the fraction sizes. They also have a face value of $50, $25, $10, and $5 respectively. However, the Gold Eagles intrinsic value is much higher than their face value.

The iconic design of the $20 Double Eagle from the 1970s, a design by the famous sculptor August Saint-Gaudens graces the obverse of the American Gold Eagle modern bullions. A beautiful full length image of Lady Liberty striding forward confidently on a background of sunrise and US Capitol Building is a well-known image. Lady Liberty is holding a lit torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand and her long hair and long gown are flowing beautifully in the wind. This detailed picturesque design mesmerizes one and all. The reverse portrays a Miley Busiek design of a male eagle holding an olive branch in its talons is flying with its wings widely spread towards a nest containing a female eagle with her young ones.

Per law, these bullion coins are made from the gold that has been mined only in United States of America. It is made from a precise alloy of 91.67% gold, 3.00% silver, and 5.33% copper. This combination gives a slightly larger coin which is pretty strong. The copper and silver alloy hardens the gold to make it resistant towards marks and abrasions. Despite the addition of the alloy, the coin contains full amount of gold per the denomination of the coin.

A premier bullion coin of the world, the American Eagles provide maximum liquidity and enjoys universal acceptance. Its high numismatic appeal and great intrinsic value have made it a collector’s and investor’s favorite coin.

Simply said, this transaction was flawless! Bullion Exchanges continually impresses me with their professionalism and wide selection of products which ship at lightening speed may I add! I will certainly continue to purchase from BE, and recommend that you do the same.

Finally Found The One (Review by Tony)
I cant tell you how many PM dealers I've dealt whit in the past and they have all been very disappointing! Either my shipment is delayed, or packaged horribly. I was near my wits end when I cam across one of BE's Instagram Clips and decided to take a look at their website. Long story short this is my 5th order and will not be my last.

Excellent Company (Review by Tiffany )
Bullion Exchanges website was very easy to navigate, and their online chat is sublime! I had one simple question which was answered in a matter of seconds. Sent them a check which they received in 3 days, 2 days later items were sent, 1 day later received what I ordered. Mr gold coin was packaged very well, and the box gave no indication that they are a metals dealer. So far Bullion Exchange is by far the best dealer that I have ordered from!

BE - My preferred PM dealer! (Review by Bill H )
Bullion Exchanges is my go to place for almost all my Gold needs. They offer fair prices on all their bullion and Silver rounds also, and now that they offer free shipping over $75! I never have an order under 100 dollars so they fit my buying habits well. I found that sending them a money order vs check is the best way to go. Less hold time and still receive lowest price. I also just found out they take Bitcoin! Is there anything these guys don't do?

Look No Further. (Review by Lionel H )
I stumbled upon Bullion Exchanges one day as I was scrolling through Instagram and found a video of theirs. Because I had been so disappointed with my purchases from other Dealers I only placed a order of 3 - 1oz gold eagles with BE to see if the reviews I was reading about were true. Well I can honestly say I have never been happier. My order arrived extremely fast, the packaging was secure and discreet and they have the best prices if I might add! These guys have gained a new customer for life!
