Congressionally authorized, American Eagle Bullion Coins are minted by the United States Mint. They are intended to provide investors with a convenient and cost-effective way to invest in precious metals. Since their launch, American Eagles have become the world's number one bullion coin investment products.
Prices for American Eagles are based on the prevailing price of platinum, gold, and silver, plus a modest premium. Prices may change on a daily basis, as the platinum, gold, and silver markets fluctuate. The United States Mint does not sell its bullion coins directly to the public. Instead, the United States Mint distributes the coins in bulk, through a network of official distributors called Authorized Purchasers who, in turn, sell them to secondary retailers.
