Please note under Austalian Law, American Eagle Gold Coins (whilst containing a full ounce of gold) also contain 8.3% Copper making the coins larger and stronger. This is traditional for gold coins designed for circulation because 9999 gold is very soft and easily damaged. Nonetheless due to the 917 purity American Eagle Gold Coins attract a 10% GST. This Tax is included in the final price.
Individual coins do not come encapsulated, and multiples of 20 come packaged in U.S. Mint Refinery Tubes.
