Products are shipped extremely fast, often the same day as the order is placed.  All shipments are sent via insured USPS so there are no issues with problems of non-delivery.

Many of the coin & bullion sites we reviewed are relatively new.  Golden Eagle Coins was founded in 1974 so they have quite a bit more history and experience in dealing with market fluctuations.


Products and Pricing

Finding the bullion products you are looking for is simple on the Golden Eagle site because the website navigation is very simple to use. Golden Eagle separates the bullion products by Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium.  Once you click on a metal type you can choose from a variety of bars, coins and rounds.

The brands and sizes of gold & silver bars are all displayed giving you a wide variety of choices.  This is good for not only large investors but those only looking to get started investing in precious metals.
Golden Eagle offers not only American Gold Eagles but Canadian Gold Maple Leafs, Chinese Gold Pandas and hundreds of other popular and hard-to-find coins.

In silver, GE offers Silver Eagles, Maples & Pandas as well as newly popular items like Philharmonics, Armenian Silver etc.  This is a great site to look for those tough dates and coins that other sites don’t carry.  Many bullion coins can greatly appreciate depending on their rarity and mintage.

Shipping & Delivery

All orders from Golden Eagle are shipped by USPS and are insured for their entire value.  When asking them about this via email they responded that the USPS are the only carrier that consistently pays claims for lost packages.

All of the packages also require a signature for added safety and security.  Boxes have no indicators of their contents and are very discreetly wrapped.
