The U.S. Mint produces American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins in four weights: one ounce, half ounce, quarter ounce, and tenth ounce. The coins are 22-karat gold, plus small amounts of alloy. This creates harder coins that resist scratching and marring, which can diminish resale value. Bullion coins are coins whose weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the United States government. They can also be included in an IRA.
The U.S. Mint does not sell bullion coins directly to the public. Learn more about gold bullion coins or locate a bullion coin dealer. Prices are based on the market price of gold, which fluctuates daily.
PAXG offers investors a cost-effective way to own investment-grade physical gold with all the benefits of the blockchain. Each Pax Gold (PAXG) token is backed by one fine troy ounce of gold, stored in LBMA vaults in London. If you own PAXG, you own the underlying physical gold, held in custody by Paxos Trust Company.
Creation and Destruction fees: Whenever you buy or sell PAXG from your Paxos account (on either the wallet dashboard or PAX Gold pages), Paxos charges small fees to process both the creation and destruction of PAXG tokens (see fee schedule below).

These fees do not apply when purchasing & selling tokens through our exchange order book or anywhere else outside the Paxos wallet. If you wish to purchase or sell PAXG through our exchange order book your trades may be subject to applicable trading fees.

On July 26, 1933, the Columbus Dental Manufacturing Company applied to the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland for $10,000 in pure gold. The next day, the Bank approved the application, sending the firm twenty-nine gold bars weighing 476.92 ounces and valued at $9,867.14. In the depths of the Great Depression, why was the Cleveland Fed supplying gold to a firm that made false teeth, rather than supplying gold coins and a gold-backed currency to banks? Does the Federal Reserve supply gold to dentists today?
Section 2 of the act transferred ownership of all monetary gold in the United States to the US Treasury. Monetary gold included all coins and bullion held by individuals and institutions, including the Federal Reserve. In return, individuals and institutions received currency at a rate of $35 per ounce of gold. This rate reduced the gold value of the dollar to 59 percent of the value set by the Gold Act of 1900, which equaled $20.67 per ounce. That rate had prevailed until the spring of 1933, when the Roosevelt administration began its campaign to devalue the dollar.
Sections 5 and 6 of the act prohibited the Treasury and financial institutions from redeeming dollars for gold, inverting the system that had prevailed in the United States since the nineteenth century. Under that system, the government converted paper currency to gold coins, whenever citizens desired to do so. Now, the government converted gold into dollars, regardless of whether citizens wanted to engage in the exchange.
Sections 3, 4, and 11 of the act regulated the use of gold within the United States. Regulations governed the use, acquisition, transportation, importing, exporting, and possession of gold. For example, monetary gold had to be held as bars. Coins were forbidden. Bars could be obtained for certain industrial uses, such as the manufacture of dental appliances, jewelry, and electronics. Gold items could be bought and sold if they weighed less than fifteen ounces, but transactions for heavier items required licenses. Violators faced stiff penalties.
Today, you might ask, do dentists still get gold from the Federal Reserve? No is the answer. The provisions of the Gold Reserve Act of 1934 applied to the stock of monetary gold in the United States at that time. The preponderance of that gold remains the property of the Treasury, although much of it physically resides in the vaults of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
Book Value: The Department of the Treasury records U.S. Government owned gold reserve at the values stated in 31 USC § 5116-5117 (statutory rate) which is $42.2222 per Fine Troy Ounce of gold. The market value of the gold reserves based on the London Gold Fixing as of September 30, 2020 was $493.4 billion.
Deep Storage: That portion of the U.S.Government-owned gold bullion reserve which the Mint secures in sealed vaults that are examined annually by the Treasury Department's Office of the Inspector General and consists primarily of gold bars.
Working Stock: That portion of the U.S. Government gold reserve which the Mint uses as the raw material for minting congressionally authorized coins and consists of bars, blanks, unsold coins and condemned coins.
The gold reserve held by the Department of the Treasury is partially offset by a liability for gold certificates issued to the Federal Reserve Banks at the statutory rate, which Treasury may redeem at any time.
It is a common refrain amongst gold aficionados that one ounce of gold has always and will always maintain the ability to purchase one "decent men's suit." Hence the notion that gold will always maintain a constant purchasing power. Judged by this metric, let's find out how one ounce of gold has done for the last 212 years.
I have no personal bias for or against gold, but the merits of maintaining gold as a portion of one's wealth should be based on its historical performance relative to other asset classes. After all, gold is just that...an asset. Granted, it is a hard, tangible and shiny asset, which gives it a striking allure, but nevertheless, it is an asset whose value is subject to economic and market forces.
The starting point for this analysis is the year 1800. I believe that duration provides a long enough runway to analyze. In the year 1800, the nominal price of one ounce of gold was fixed at $19.39. Adjusted for inflation to maintain a "constant" purchasing power, the price of gold today would be between $260 and $348 per ounce, depending on which measure of inflation is used (i.e, CPI or GDP deflator).
The chart below shows the deviation of the nominal gold price from the inflation adjusted price since 1800. At today's current price of $1,545 per ounce, gold has done a fantastic job of not only maintaining purchasing power, but increasing it five fold. The only other period when the nominal gold price deviated more than 2x its inflation adjusted price was in the 1980s, albeit temporarily.
How does that compare to other asset classes? Using available data on short-term interest rates from the year 1831 onwards, and stock market returns from the year 1871 onwards, we can construct a picture of gold's relative performance.
