Ask a group of people to name what they believe to be the most "precious" metal, and you're likely to hear the word "gold" mentioned repeatedly. Numismatists also favor gold pieces when looking to add attractive, valuable items to their treasured coin collections. American Mint is pleased to offer a tremendous selection of beautiful, expertly crafted gold-layered coins that are perennial favorites among our loyal customers.
You'll Find a Variety of Elegant Gold-Layered Dollar Coins and Much More
From stunning, expertly crafted replicas of genuine U.S. currency to an exclusive commemorative in honor of Pope Benedict XVI’s recent resignation, American Mint’s selection of gold-layered coins, each luxuriously coated in 24k gold, make a brilliant addition to any collection. Here are just a few examples:
- Abraham Lincoln Dollar Trial Coin: The gleaming gold-layered dollar coin represents our artist's interpretation of the Abraham Lincoln coin that was part of the short-lived, but exceedingly popular Congress-commissioned United States Presidents series. The coin features an immaculately detailed portrayal of our 16th president on the obverse and the Statue of Liberty extending her torch to the heavens on the reverse side.
- Heroes and Flags of the Civil War Commemorative Coin: Meticulously designed by American Mint in conjunction with The National Civil War Museum, this commemorative piece features an amazingly detailed engraving of Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee, the commanding generals of the Union and Confederate forces respectively. There is also a brilliant full-color depiction of the Union Flag and the Battle Flag of the Confederacy.
- World War I Centennial Commemorative Coin: Issued in 2017, this proof-quality gold-layered coin pays tribute to the 100th anniversary of the "War to End All Wars." The coin's obverse offers a highly detailed engraving of battle-tested American soldiers as they wage war on the enemy on the front lines. The reverse features a famous quote from President Woodrow Wilson as he announces America's entry into the fray.
- Queen Elizabeth II - 90th Birthday Commemorative Coin: We issued this one-of-a-kind gold-layered coin in 2016 in recognition of this milestone in the life of the remarkable woman who has served as Queen of the United Kingdom since 1953. The obverse consists of a tasteful portrayal of Her Majesty in profile, brilliantly accented with a glittering Swarovski® crystal. The reverse depicts her at various stages of her illustrious life.
