WASHINGTON – The United States Mint announced today that 2007 Gold Uncirculated American Eagle Coins will go on sale beginning at noon (ET) on April 27.

“The uncirculated American Eagles proved to be such a popular new series for collectors last year that we are launching the coins five months earlier in 2007,” said United States Mint Director Edmund C. Moy. “We will mint to demand, with no mintage limits, to give interested customers the best opportunity to add these beautiful coins to their collection.”

Struck on specially burnished blanks, the American Eagle Gold Uncirculated Coins feature a finish similar to their bullion counterparts, but they carry the “W” mint mark reflecting their striking at the United States Mint at West Point. Each coin is encapsulated in plastic and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

The American Eagle Gold Uncirculated Coins are priced at the relative mid-point between the American Eagle Proof Coins and the American Eagle Bullion Coins, and bear the same designs. Gold values affect overall production costs for this program, and the 2007 prices are listed below.

The American Eagle Gold Uncirculated One ounce coin is $749.95; the American Eagle Gold Uncirculated Half-ounce coin is $379.95; the American Eagle Gold Uncirculated Quarter-ounce coin is $195.95; the American Eagle Gold Uncirculated Tenth-ounce coin is $89.95, and the American Eagle Gold Uncirculated Four-Coin Set is $1,379.95.
