American Eagle Gold Coins as an Investment

Demand for American Eagle Gold Coins is outstripping the demand for South Africa's Krugerrands, Canada's Maple Leaf, Mexico's 50 Peso and China's Panda due possibly to its high gold content but also maybe due to the ease with which one can buy and sell the American Gold Eagle.

It seems that some global investors are buying American Eagle Gold Coins as a hedge to offset currency fluctuations and to protect personal assets.

"This is the best way for the small investor to enter the gold market with an investment in gold coins," top gold investment advisor Kevin DeMeritt of Lear Financial, the parent company of Gold Central, one of the top gold coin companies in the U.S, stated recently

American Gold Eagle coins are the US governments only official investment-grade gold bullion guaranteed by the United States Government. Each American Eagle gold coin is 22 karats (gold is measured in karats).

In other words, the coin contains 22 parts pure gold and 2 parts silver and or copper. Gold is a soft metal and the addition alloys such as silver and copper held to improve the durability of the coins.

American Eagle gold coins have been featured numerous times in the Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Money Magazine, on CNBC, and numerous other financial publications and are considered a very sound investment. And any American Eagle gold coins can be quickly sold for cash at coin and precious metal dealers throughout the world.

Legally American gold coins are legal tender in the US. The one ounce American Eagle gold coin has a face value of $50 although of course it is worth much more than that.

Many investors consider the American eagle a hedge against market inflation and as an asset to balance out fluctuations in fiscal currency and many investment professionals advise that one should hold at least 25 percent of ones assets in solid gold such as gold coins and bars.

Using gold coins as an investment seems to be a very wise move as, whatever happens to the dollar, people will always be willing to buy American Eagle Gold Coins.
