The eagle was created by the United States Mint as a base unit of denomination. It was only issued for gold coinage based on the original values instituted by the Coinage Act of 1792, with circulation of these coins ceasing after 1933. The "Eagle", "Half Eagle", and "Quarter Eagle" were explicitly given these names in the Act of Congress that originally authorized them ("An Act establishing a Mint, and regulating Coins of the United States", section 9, April 2, 1792). Equally, the Double Eagle was specifically created as such by name ("An Act to authorize the Coinage of Gold Dollars and Double Eagles", title and section 1, March 3, 1849). Gold eagles were issued for circulation by the US Mint from 1795–1933, half eagles from 1795–1929, quarter eagles from 1796–1929, and double eagles from 1850–1933; with occasional production gaps for each type.
The $2.5 Liberty Head Gold Quarter Eagle coin is yet another beautifully designed product of the US Mint. Like most US Mint coins, the fact that it hasn’t been minted for more than a century only makes it more valuable in the eyes of both collectors and investors. Its high gold content in conjunction with it being increasingly difficult to find makes it easy for one to understand why these coins, when in stock, tend to only be available for a limited time. The $2.5 Liberty Head is unarguably a piece of American history, and is sought after by investors and collectors all over the world. The coin contains .12094 troy oz of gold.

The $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagles were minted between 1849-1907 and designed by Chief Engraver James Longacre. The coin contains .9675 troy ounces of gold and is struck in 90% fine gold. A testament to the huge boom in the California Gold Rush, this coin is a collector's item. Until 1849, the U.S. Mint produced only $2.50, $5 and $10 coins. The discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill and the ensuing California gold rush, however, soon prompted Congress to authorize the mintage of the legendary $20 Double Eagle Liberty gold coin.
