The American Gold Eagle is made of 22-karat gold that has been mined in America.
The Gold Eagle 1oz coin is composed of 91.67% gold, 3% silver and 5.33% copper. These alloys make the gold much more scratch resistent than 24 karat gold. The American Gold Eagle still contains 1/2 troy ounce of gold. The coin itself acutally weighs 1.0909 ounces, with the extra weight in silver and copper.
These qualities allow the American Gold Eagles to be stored in convenient treasury coin tubes in a very small space.

1oz Fine Gold, E Pluribus Unum, and In God We Trust.
