American Gold Eagle Bullion Coins. 1986-2009

American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins are one of the world's leading gold bullion investment coins. By law they are produced from gold mined in the United States, American Eagles are imprinted with their gold content and legal tender "face" value. American Eagles use the durable 22 karat standard established for gold circulating coinage over 350 years ago. They contain their stated amount of pure gold, plus small amounts of alloy. This creates harder coins that resist scratching and marring, which can diminish resale value. Minted to exacting standards, the obverse (front) design is inspired by what's often considered one of America's most beautiful coins: Augustus Saint-Gaudens' celebrated $20 gold piece, minted from 1907-1933. The reverse features a nest of American Eagles, symbolizing family tradition and unity.

Westminster Mint Releases One Trillion Dollar Design on One-Troy Pound Silver Bar

MINNEAPOLIS , June 17, 2009 – Back when the economy was in good shape, we would occasionally hear someone say, “I feel like a million bucks!” Bad economic climate or not, Westminster Mint, Inc. – one of the U.S. ’s largest silver bullion dealers – just upped the ante to a trillion.

The Minneapolis-based company announced today that it has produced a one-troy pound silver bar with a one trillion dollar design. Minted from 12 troy ounces of pure .999 silver bullion, the Trillion Dollar Bill features a surface area exceeding 30 inches and is over one-eighth of an inch thick. The bar is the same length and width as a dollar bill, but is 37 times thicker than paper money.

Each Trillion Dollar Bill is struck to a collector qualify proof finish and exhibits deep, mirror-like surfaces. It is fully encapsulated in a hard acrylic holder and housed in a deluxe presentation case with an individually-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Only 10,000 of these individually-numbered Trillion Dollar Bills will be minted, ensuring the bullion and collectible value of these pieces. The price is $50 over spot silver (as of June 17, the price was $238.48, based on spot silver) for the Trillion Dollar Bill, which may be purchased by visiting or by calling toll-free 1-800-301-3868. Those who purchase more than one bar will receive consecutive serial numbers.

Note – How big is the number one trillion? Well, if you can keep track of the next one trillion seconds of your life, you will be 32,000 years older than you are today.
