In 1985, the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985 was passed and an official gold bullion coin of the United States was declared – the American Gold Eagle. According to this Act, the American Gold Eagle could only be struck using gold mined in the United States and refined to .9167 fine gold with a balance of copper. The U.S. Mint proceeded to strike the first American Gold Eagles in 1986, where they were issued in 4 different sizes: $50 1 oz., $25 1/2 oz., $10 1/4 oz., and $5 1/10 oz.
