Free Bullion Investment Guide
Thanks You for Visiting!





My name is Steven Warrenfeltz, and I created the this guide for those who are looking for honest information about investing in precious metals bullion.

The other side of this guide is my way of fulfilling a promise to a childhood friend who died of cancer.

That promise was to do whatever I could to support those who are Battling Cancer (researchers/patients), and in doing so, try to help rid the world of this horrible disease.

The guide is my effort to make a bigger impact against the disease by combining what I love, 'investing,' while fulfilling a promise.


The Free Bullion Investment Guide has three missions:

  • The 1st mission is to be an Honest place on the web that provides you with the Best Bullion Market Reference Material.

Design of the
1/4 oz. American Eagle Gold
Bullion Coin





Obverse

The obverse side of the 1/4 oz. American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin is based on world-renowned American sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ design for the prized 1907 $20 gold coin.

The design depicts Lady Liberty in a flowing gown with her hair blowing in the wind as she stands proudly over the U.S. Capital which is in the lower background.

"LIBERTY" is inscribed across the top of the gold coin and the coin's 'Year of Issue' can be found below Liberty's left hand that is holding the olive branch.

Note: From 1986 - 1991, American Eagle Gold coins had the year stated in Roman Numerals. From 1992 to present the year of issue has been numerical.








Reverse

The reverse depicts a family of eagles symbolizing the American Tradition of Unity; it was designed by Miley Busiek (now Miley Frost).

Miley Busiek's design shows a father eagle returning to his family's nest with olive branches in his talons.

Across the top of the gold bullion coin, the words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, are inscribed.

Along the bottom of the gold bullion coin is its Weight and Purity of  "1/4 OZ. FINE GOLD~10 DOLLARS," ten dollars represents the Legal Tender value of the coin.

Furthermore, every United States coin displays "E PLURIBUS UNUM," which is Latin for "Out of Many, One," and "IN GOD WE TRUST."

The Edge of the gold coin is Reeded.

Note: American Eagle bullion coins do not have a Mint Mark.  Only the Collector's Proof and Collector's Un-Circulated Versions of the American Gold Eagle have a mint mark on the reverse side.
