Background of Gold Coins
Gold is the ultimate coining material for as long as anyone can remember. The American Gold Eagles, for example, has been circulating for more than three centuries ago. It remained at 22-karat, which makes it the favorite for gold coin buyers.
Even with rarer, cheaper and, more common materials available, gold has always been the top among these other precious metals.
History of Gold in Coinage
During the American colonial period, people used different kinds of commodity money to deal with the natives. But when dealing with foreign merchants, the hard coin was necessary, and this became a challenge since America only exchanged precious metals depending on the region or local economy’s preference. Since foreign currencies were circulated rampantly, the leaders had to demonetize this.
To authorize the production of gold coins in America, lawmakers passed the Coinage Act of 1792. The law mandated the weight of three coin denominations, namely the quarter eagle ($2.50), the half eagle ($5), which was the first released in 1795, and the eagle ($10). The government applied different designs to these circulating coins until they settled with the Liberty Head.
Gold one-dollar coins were first released in 1849, followed by the $3 coin in 1854.
In 1892, the United States started to issue the ‘Not Intended for Circulation (NIFC)’ commemorative coins, and gold coins became a part.
Due to the increasing coin demand that made the government decide to go for the cheaper coin materials, gold coins became limited to commemorative coinage intended for the collector market, which the US mint can freely issue.
