Pre-1933 U.S. Gold Coins
Invest in American History
Buying Pre-1933 Gold Coins from the U.S. Gold Bureau is simple with a large inventory of Saint-Gaudens (1907-1933), Indian Head (1908-1929) & Liberty Head (1850-1907) gold coins. The U.S. Mint first issued gold coins in 1795. In 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 6102, which forbid the hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States, citing "hoarding" gold as stifling economic growth and furthering the Great Depression.
Millions of American gold coins were returned to the U.S. Treasury, melted, and then cast into gold bars. The surviving vintage of pre-1933 U.S. gold coins have extremely low populations, making them among the most desirable gold coins among collectors and investors.
